Neil deGrasse Tyson Treats Twitter To His Insights Into Gravity

When Neil deGrasse Tyson‘s sequel to Carl Sagan‘s Cosmos airs next year I think there’s a good chance he’ll become even more popular than he is now, and that thought makes me happy. Not only is Tyson an accomplished astrophysicist, he’s one of the best science communicators in the world and, frankly, I feel actual joy when somebody like this becomes a celebrity. The more platforms he has to start conversation about science, the better.

This man’s opinions on Alfonso Cuaron‘s Gravity were always going to be interesting. I’ve been waiting for them, in fact and I was happy to see Tyson take to Twitter to discuss the film this evening.

Here are his points about the film, mostly in the form of rhetorical questioning.

Those are his published thoughts until now. That last one seems like a perfect cue for the trailer to his new Cosmos, a show that promises to be as utterly captivating as great drama without inventing a single character or suspenseful situation to put them in.

I look forward to being able to discuss Gravity more. The film is out in the US now and will reach the UK on November 8th. Seems like cinema doesn’t move at the speed of light after all.
