Neil deGrasse Tyson: What NASA Means to America’s Future

During a presentation given at the University at Buffalo, a student asked renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson for his thoughts on U.S. federal cutbacks to NASA funding. while you may or may not be American, I think Tyson’s answer should be (as always) heard by everyone and gives new insights on what can happen if a country stops spending on projects that make people dream.

  1. That was the most impassioned 5 minutes I've ever heard about NASA. I was at the launch on the 5th. It was an awesome thing to behold.

  3. I love that he's basically saying that if geeks don't get to do sexy stuff then people aren't going to want to be geeks. Tyson may be an astrophysicist rather than an economist, but that's a lesson in incentives if I've ever heard one. :)
