    With the dead end at the Yucca Mountain Repository for Radioactive Waste and $9.5 billion spent and no solution. Has anyone asked NASA, about Shipping Nuclear Waste to be incinerated in the sun? Which in its self; is one huge nuclear reactor, right? I realize that solar winds would push a vehicle away from the sun. But wouldn’t the gravitational pull of the sun minimize the fuel needed to ship the waste there.

      Rockets cost a lot of money. Nuclear waste is heavy, so it would take a lot of rockets. The only solution for nuclear waste is to not make it in the first place.

    Does the multiverse hypothesis change the Big Bang theory? Is Big Bang safe?

    How is physics relevant to humanity? Obviously we might not exist
    without it on a practical level but how does it matter on a personal and
    social level? Tyson talks about black holes light years away but says
    nothing about a couple of 1000+ foot skyscrapers that supposedly
    “collapsed” a few blocks from his home.

    What about the physics of
    that? But then he tells us about the scientific defects in the movie
    “Gravity” and the errors in the sky of “Titanic”. What does Tyson
    regard as really important in physics? Only if it is light years away
    or in a movie?

    Of course if he had raised the issue in 2002 would he have gotten to do COSMOS?

    God loves Neil deGrasse Tyson and will deliver the earth from ignorance through his word.

    God hath delivered Ebola unto the pagan monkey worshipers of Africa that do not believe in evolution and so eat our ancestors.

    These souls of ignorance and darkness must educate and learn of evolution and run into the bright light of 21st century science otherwise God shalt rain down a river a blood unto African monkey eaters with such force that thou shalt bleed out from thou eyeballs into a river of blood.

    The river of monkey worshiper blood shall roll out into the oceans of Africa and great storms shalt rain blood hither and dither unto anti-evolution worshipers of coastal florida thousands of continents away.
