Leave it to Neil deGrasse Tyson to Burst Your Sci-Fi Movie Bubble

Leave it to astrophysicist, TV personality, and author Neil deGrasse Tyson to ruin your favorite sci-fi movie. Then again, he could only ruin it if you really thought that everything you just saw in that space flick was totally realistic. Whether you’re a die-hard fan of science, love movies, or just like to get reality thrown in your face, then this one’s for you.

Neil deGrasse Tyson has a knack for making complicated things sound a lot simpler than they really are. His way of explaining seemingly unexplainable things about science and putting it together in an easily digestible form is actually quite refreshing. But aside from his charisma and obvious passion for science, deGrasse Tyson loves to rain on the movie parade. One of his favorite things to do is tell us what’s wrong – and technically impossible – about all those sci-fi films we see… all with a sense of humor.
