The Space Force is a GREAT idea! If I remember correctly there are over 60 different space commissions and labs in the Air Force alone and none of them really know what the others are doing, or at least not at the level they should. Making them cooperate under one command will save a lot of money and wasted effort.

Tyson is one of the reasons that NASA went from walking on the Moon. To fifty years later, still tending an advanced Satellite with humans on board, acting like Disneyland Astronaut greeters, eating floating food over and over, and explaining space toilets, duh! And rovers taking lousy shopped photos of Mars with the most advanced cameras our Tax Money can afford.

Neil didn't mention how aggressive China has been getting with their Space Program. Nor the Cold War orbital platforms that Russia built. America has some experimental and first strike options of its own. So Space has been militarized. Might be a bad idea, but its being done.

Lol even though Trump might not be the smartest, or come off that way the things he saying about China and space are very real threats to us. China and Russia is know classified as more dangerous than Islamic extremism, think about that

Half of the people watching this video either wanted Hillary or Bernie. Evidently they weren’t qualified to be president since they both lost. Trump beat them both. To you I say, “I hope you have a lousy day and I hope you’re having a lousy four years. Oh, and next time, put your money on the right pony.”

That was actually a comforting thought: as much as we can have wars on earth, we can't have wars in space. And if we did, it would eventually destroy all space commanded options to have wars on earth, which is also sort of comforting. I mean in the non comforting context of humans not evolving past the need to be at war with one another, it seems comforting.

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.

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.

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.
