An out-of-India tard, huh? Well I never


On topic, I like the shows as far as the science is concerned, but, like Carl Sagan before him, Tyson tends to play a little...fast and loose with the history.

Supporting

Tier 1: Fish, Kuznetsov, Donskoy, Kyrgios, Vesely, Thiem, Coric

Tier 2: All other young players (We need a new generation of players!)

Dark energy, dark matter, black holes, neutron stars, etc. The whole edifice is based on guesswork.

Your contribution to this thread was brilliant. You really made me laugh quite a few times.

Re: Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey

It is a great show indeed. I like Tyson. It's endearing when he giggles at his own comments. He'd make a great drinking buddy while laying the science on you.
