Neil D'Grassy Tyson?
« on: February 05, 2011, 12:34:05 AM »
Who loves this guy?  :smitten:  Tonight on Bill Mahar is the third time in the last two weeks I've seen Tyson. Suddenly, there's someone else in this world who thinks as off the wall as me. And he's getting paid for it too. Imagine.... And he's just so cool. http://www.haydenplanetarium.org/tyson/

Can't say I've ever heard of him before :scratch: Hopefully he'll hit our screens sooner or later :smiley:

Ahh, the Nova guy.... he's funny. :smiley: I've caught him on the Daily Show every now and again, and he always plays well-- I can guess he and Bill Mahar would work.  :afro:

Not thrilled with the way a lot of Nova's been the last few years, though. The older ones are better. Tyson's the better part, though-- he knows what he's talking about and he's actually funny in his own right-- and science still excites him. Nova's trying too hard to appeal to people who don't like Nova specials in the first place, I think. They spend too short a time on a subject, only brushing the surface, --just long enough to my catch interest,-- then they're on to something else. Apparently, no one has an attention span, anymore. Even Secrets of the Dead bored the heck out me the last time I saw it... Anybody catch the one where they think some cases (I think it was in England, but I saw it years ago, so I could be wrong) of women being accused of witchcraft was caused by ergot poisoning? LSD delivered by grain-- ha! That was good one...
I think, Sebastian, there for I am.

Oo, I forgot about this thread. The Nova show he did that I watched was good, different ways science is trying to outsmart death, approaches from different angles. One thing they covered was a computer geek who's trying to perfect cartooned avitars of yourself that have an information chip with your personality and memories. The avitar virtually becomes you and will live on answering questions in a way similar to Superman's parents. It was all pretty off the wall stuff that you don't imagine science sticking their nose into.

As for Mahar, he made an interesting statement to him. Something along the lines of "Science is based on fact. It doesn't matter if you believe it for it to be true."
