It’s also available to watch instantly on Netflix. I just added it to my instant queue and can’t wait to see the 13 episodes again.

For a general peek into science (including Sagan and deGrasse) this link may be of interest to all. There are 86 pages!

http://science.memebase.com/

and this is truly astounding! The name of the clip is “absolutely everything”.  Entanglement?

Asanta and McKenzie got to enjoy an evening talk by Tyson a couple of years ago while I sat outside and listened to a local transmission of the last half of it because of the stupid Jetblue airline that had a three hour delay on the flight from Los Angeles to San Francisco. vampire  LOL

I’m so sorry you went through all the trouble of coming to SF only to miss a wonderful talk. OTOH, it was great meeting you two!

Great video.  I got a laugh out of the Tyson doll.  Too bad he’s married.  :(  I think he’s not only cute, but a brilliantly intelligent man.  His intelligence is sooooo sexy!  LOL  That and how he talks about the universe.  smile

Gee, I have nothing to contribute to this thread, except my drooling over him.  LOL

Hell, I’m a straight man and I drool over him!  LOL

LOL  Everything that comes out of his mouth is so intelligent (or at least I think so), which is so sexy.  I envy his wife, because I bet she has the most sensual intellectual conversations with him.  smile

No, it’s my parents’ fault. They never read love poems to me when I was a kid.

Wow, this is getting a little deep.  I am surprised no one has mentioned his cute, perpetually recurring self-conscious smile…
Anyway, he was good on the Bill Maher show the other night.

As a fabrication of our own consciousness, our assignations of meaning are no less “real”, but since humans and the fabrications of our consciousness are routinely fraught with error, it makes sense, to me, to, sometimes, question such fabrications.

Tyson was also pretty good on The Daily Show. Especially when he pointed out that the rotating globe in the intro sequence is rotating the wrong way! grin

I just heard an interview where he mentioned that the reason that he hasn’t been on Nova recently is because he’s on hiatus while he and the two producers of the Sagan show are working on a series in the format of and to follow on Sagan’s ideas.

He is cute, but that’s not what turns me on when I see and hear him.  I find the brain, esp when one shows intelligence and that they are well educated, the sexiest part of the body, esp if they can involve a woman intellectually.  There is just something about an intellectually stimulating conversation or what have you, concerning a man, that I find very attractive.  During such conversations, if one were hooked up to a machine to show this, the brain lights up, much like space, not to mention the colour spectrum on an MRI is almost like space too.  Given that we haven’t mapped the brain as well as other things, it is, IMO, the last frontier, as well as like space, because the chemicals found in us, as Tyson has pointed out in at least one video, are the same chemicals found in the universe.  He’s right too and that’s where the drool factor come is, because if I were to every meet him, I’m sure we could have a very intellectual conversation without his brains going south.  We can share the same awe and wonder together over science and I haven’t even gotten into the 98% genetically like us concerning chimps or other evolutionary subjects he sometimes mentions, but still, such things really excite me, more so than looks, giving me two different thoughts at the same time- the intellectual thoughts and how sexy he is at the same time.  While some women get excited about a cute smile or handsome features, I get excited over the guy’s brain, intelligence, and education, even if it is superior than my education.
