    That kid's letter was heartbreakingly precious!
    Also, at :30 is a rare, rare moment when Neil deGrasse Tyson briefly loses his words. It must've really been emotional for him.

    I've not hand-written anything since I left school.
    Then one of my (10-year-old Chinese) students asked me how they should write a particular letter in English cursive,
    and it was really enjoyable to pick up a pen and write again. To actually physically materialise your own thoughts and pull them into reality in analog with real-time feedback.

    Well, Neil DeGrasse Tyson looks sorry for how he acted to those women. Unfortunately, his actions were not considered harassing enough to get fired. So his female coworkers still have to endure seeing him in the office. Celebrities and Politicians get away with a lot of sexual harassment. As a normal citizen, I could not get away with half as much as celebs and politicians. I wish it were the same high standard for everyone.

    Put the controversy aside. This man is a beautiful human that does a great job interpreting the Beauty of reality and openly and carelessly expresses his passions to an ignorantly bred species. We will always be progressing while he is alive. Love you Neil, you’ve made an impact on many and will continue to

    I'm over it. I forgive him. Pluto isn't just Not A Planet, it never was a planet. It should never have been considered one in the first place. And I, personally, am glad that I don't have to memorize the names of the thousands upon thousands of similar objects in the Kuiper belt.

    It gives me hope the the most beloved man in America is an atheist that doesn't take sides, just facts. I think it helps redeem the historical stigma of atheism, the biggest growing minority in America, the the largest growing in non-muslim countries. We're going to be okay!
