So, his publisher lined up a book project for him titled, “Accessory to War’. Because D. Trump is going to say something about our space development? That makes Neil Tyson a trained monkey, unless Trump is the trained monkey being led and following orders.

Why do we need a Navy, why do we need a military? It's just so silly. This Moron Colbert would rather let China and Russia lead the space force tech in weaponizing satellites. This guys show needs to die.

Space debris? Exactly what and where would you put it? Tyson is a TV personality. Where does he get the time for science? No real scientist would put some one down for disagreeing, as he does with global warming. Real scientist say prove it.

I know the Earth is flat by scripture and by what I observe with my own eyes. All of Nasa's images are cgi and fake. Everything they do is a lie. Satellites aren't real! If they were real we wouldn't have giant cables running under the oceans connecting the worlds internet and phone. If satellites were real you would get actual real images when searching. If satellites were real we wouldn't need all of these cell towers. Have you ever looked at your satellite which is static and pointing in one direction, and asked yourself how it stays connected with an orbiting satellite? I guess you just haven't thought about that. You will pay for playing a part in deceiving the world from the truth of God. You guys can laugh and mock all you want. I know the truth. I lost all respect for this guy.

Do you have a space vacuum ? Isn't space already a vacuum. It's a funny remark, but also a valid point : you can only suck up things with a vacuum cleaner because there is air to suck up ( which takes dirt with it as it is sucked up). But in vaccuum, that wouldn't work. You'd have to manually collect everything somehow.

Ummm, if we don't do it, we're just going to get left behind by countries that will do it. It's that type of ignorance you harbor that will get America taken over by the Chinese. You're clearly ignorant and out of your element.

To counter-act global warming, why don't we just deploy solar panels over strategic areas to both block some of the sunshine hitting the globe, and soak up energy to use to clean up near space? Antarctica, Greenland, the Sahara desert, parts of the oceans, etc. Partial eclipses of the Sun drop the temperature by several degrees. A semi-permanent, movable, partial eclipse could power both a magnetic jellyfish to capture dangerous cosmic debris, as well as a space elevator. This would make much more sense to me than trying to put a permanent settlement on Mars.

No, he's no genius. As far as I know he's never accomplished any significant science. He's just a funded loudmouth, like Kaku and Nye. The latest IPCC Special Report SP15 [2018] shows we're likely to go extinct far before these loudmouths' ideas can be implemented. But if he said these truths, he'd be out of a job. The whole international scientific community ignores him. Oh, and also Americans. If you want the actual scientific knowledge, look elsewhere.

Super shill Neil deGrasse Tyson - here to give vocal back up to the U.S.As' silly Space force business. The leel of stupidity and ignorrance to support all this from the man on the street - just becuase it's promoted well on television by celebrities. O.M.G what a daft world we live in.

The idea of a space force is not absurd if it is equipped to deal with asteroids the could pose a threat to cites, continents, or the entire earth, some sort of orbital defense is necessary, much better chance of an asteroid threat than say something like an alien one. The Tunguska impact was nothing compared to the asteroid that hit, wiped out the dinosaurs, and caused and ice age. It would be nice to be able to defend against something like that from happening again. So it's not an absurd concept in that sense, not to mention they could clean up space debris, which are technically a threat to satellites, then the materials can be re purposed or disposed of properly, gotta agree with Neil on this one.

And he is supposed to be smart well not campared to Einstein or steven hawking hawking would probably use logic and his interlect to counteract this idea. of course we dont need space force its a stupid idea coming from a stupid president who likes nothing mlre than to have money in his pocket and poking the metaphorical bear.

When the Air Force came into service they just had a wooden plane with a gun attached to it and now look at the Air Force. One of the most important branches in the military today and possibly the most technologically advanced branch of the military.

It's kind of weird how the idea of asteroids defense got no response from the audience, but cleaning space debris got applauses. If you think defending ourselves against asteroids is not ecological , then obviously you don't know what effects a big rock striking earth can have on life. For more information, ask any dinosaure in your neighborhood. Oh that's right, they didn't have a space program.

Jesus, every time this man opens his mouth, I'm just mesmerized. I honestly watched this video about three times in order to fully absorb all of the information this man shared. The thing is, though, that even though he said war in space is not strategically sound, the idiot currently leading the most powerful (is that even a fact anymore? Nukes, still, so maybe) country in the world is neither strategic nor mentally sound, and if he is, it is entirely debatable.

I don't get why everyone is here is hating on Stephen in this instance. Well yeah He does Not Like Trump and thinks that He is crazy. You can clearly see that, even if you do not know him, but he does nothing more than directly asking Neil what He and many others seem to miss here, so we can have a rational discussion about this. And also, If the Air force is already doing all of this. Why create a space force in the first place? I mean some people would get work and need to get payed with the bureaucracy going into this? I guess?
