Neil DeGrasse Tyson: Is This Thing A Spaceship?


>>Stephen: BACK, EVERYBODY. WE’RE HERE WITH OUR FRIEND NEIL
DEGRASSE TYSON. LET’S TALK ABOUT SOMETHING
SMALLER IN A WAY BUT IN SORT OF MENTALLY, ANOTHER THING THAT
WILL KEEP YOU UP AT NIGHT AND KIND OF MAKE YOUR BRAIN EXPLODE
IS–>>YOU KNOW, I’M SCARED WHEN YOU
PULL STUFF OUT.>>Stephen: LIKE THIS? YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS.>>OH, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.>>Stephen: SO RECENTLY INTO
OUR SOLAR SYSTEM, ABOVE THE– WHAT’S IT CALLED, THE PLANE OF
THE ECLIPTIC?>>SURE.>>Stephen: WHERE THE PLANETS
GO AROUND FROM ABOVE OR BELOW, OR WHATEVER, OFF THE AXIS OF
WHERE THE PLANETS GO AROUND.>>PLANETS DO THIS AROUND THE
SUN.>>Stephen: THIS CAME FROM
DEEP SPACE.>>FIRST TIME EVER AN OBJECT
FROM INTERSTELLAR SPACE HAS BEEN OBSERVED TO VISIT OUR SOLAR
SYSTEM.>>Stephen: NOW, THIS THING’S
GOT TO BE LIKE A SHIP, RIGHT? THAT LOOKS TOO MUCH LIKE A
SPACESHIP.>>THIS IS NOT A PHOTOGRAPH.>>Stephen: WHAT?>>THIS IS AN ARTIST’S
RENDERING. WE KNOW IT’S ELONGATED– I DON’T
BELIEVE– ( LAUGHTER )
JUST –>>Stephen: YOU DON’T GET TO
TAKE– WHAT ABOUT THAT ONE RIGHT THERE? YOU HOLD IT WHATEVER–
>>YOU GOT PEOPLE. YOU GOT PEOPLE —
>>Stephen: I GOT PEOPLE. LOOK AT THAT BUT IT LOOKED LIKE
THAT.>>NO.>>Stephen: IT WAS ELONGATED.>>CIGARS DON’T COME JOURNEYING
INTO SOLAR SYSTEM S.>>Stephen: WHICH IS WHY IT
HAS TO BE AN ALIEN SPACESHIP.>>SO, SO–
( LAUGHTER )>>Stephen: YEAH?>>ASTEROIDS WE KNOW, MANY OF
THEM, IN NOT MOST OF THEM ARE LOOSELY HELD TOGETHER RUBBLE
PILES, AND IF THEY COME NEAR GRAVITATIONAL SOURCES, TIDAL
FORCES CAN STRETCH THEM SO THEY BECOME A STREAM OF PART NELS
RATHER THAN ONE SOLID MASS.>>Stephen: THIS IS NOT SOLID?>>IT IS LIKELY NOT SOLID.>>Stephen: WHAT IS IT?>>BUT THE SIGNAL WE GET FROM IT
IS ELONGATED, BUT IT’S PROBABLY A RUBBLE PILE STRETCHED INTO
THAT SHAPE. BECAUSE YOU DON’T GET THAT BY
NATURE. YOU DON’T GET THAT.>>Stephen: YEAH, THAT’S WHY
IT’S MANMADE.>>ALIEN.>>Stephen: ALIEN MADE.>>YOU WANT THAT TO BE ALIENS. FESS UP– YOU WANT THAT TO BE
ALIENS.>>Stephen, OF COURSE, I WANT
THAT TO BE ALIENS! THAT’S THE WHOLE POINT OF THIS
QUESTION THAT I’VE NEVER FINISHED. ( LAUGHTER )
>>HERE’S THE PROBLEM– HERE’S THE PROBLEM, THIS THING CAME IN
MOVING FAST.>>Stephen: YEAH.>>IT HAS ESCAPE VELOCITY,
HYPERBOLIC ORBIT, HYPERBOLIC TRAJECTORY, WE SAY “HYPER.” IT’S GOT MORE ENERGY.>>Stephen: THAN A BOLIC.>>IT’S PARABOLIC, FOR EXAMPLE. SO, SO, THE REASON WHY IT’S
PROBABLY NOT ALIEN ALIENS IS ITS TRAJECTORY AROUND THE SUN WAS
COMPLETELY DETERMINED BY GRAVITATIONAL FORCES.>>Stephen: HOW DO YOU KNOW?>>BECAUSE BEE KNOW. WE CALCULATE THIS. THERE ARE LAWS OF GRAVITY, LAWS
OF PHYSICS.>>Stephen: LOOK, SEE THIS,
SEE THAT? THAT TRAJECTORY WAS COMPLETELY
CONTROLLED BY GRAVITATIONAL FORCES AFTER IT REACHED ITS PEAK
UP HERE AND CAME BACK DOWN, AND YET A THINKING CREATURE STARTED
THE PROCESS, OKAY. IT DOESN’T MEAN– IF THIS CAME
IN AND YOU GO, “OH, GRAVITY DID THAT.” BUT SOMEBODY MADE IT GO TO HERE. CHECKMATE! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
PARABOLIC! PARA-BOLLIC GLIEWD #.>>Audience: STEPHEN! STEPHEN STEPHEN! STEPHEN! STEPHEN! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: THAT, MY FRIEND, IS CALLED A TASTE OF YOUR OWN
MEDICINE.>>ALL I’M SAYING IS IF IT’S
ONLY MOVING BY THE FORCE OF GRAVITY, THEN IT’S NOT– WE
PRESUME IT DOESN’T HAVE, LIKE, ROCKETS AND THINGS. IF THIS WERE ALIENS.>>Stephen: YEAH.>>IN SOME KIND OF ADVANCED SHIP
IT WOULD BE MAWFERG, DOING INTERESTING THING.>>Stephen: MAYBE IT
MANEUVERED ON ITS WAY IN, A PASS AROUND THE SUN, THE WAY THEY USE
SATELLITES TO GO AROUND THE BACK OF A PLAN TOTE WHIP THEM AROUND
OUTER SPACE.>>IT’S CALLED THE SLINGSHOT
EFFECT.>>Stephen: YOU DON’T HAVE TO
TELL ME.>>SO, MAYBE THE ALIENS SHUT OFF
THEIR ENGINES TO MASQUERADE AS A COSMIC OBJECT TO GET A SLINGSHOT
EFFECT AROUND OUR STAR.>>Stephen: MAYBE WE CAN’T
PERCEIVE WHAT THEIR ENGINES ARE AND THEY HAVE A MODE–
>>I CAN JUST TELL YOU THEY’RE OFF. ( LAUGHTER )
WHATEVER THEY ARE, THEY’RE OFF, BECAUSE IT’S– BECAUSE A TENNIS
BALL WOULD HAVE THAT TRAJECTORY MOVING AT THAT SPEED. THAT’S ALL.>>Stephen: IS THERE ANY
CHANCE?>>NOT —
>>Stephen: THAT THAT’S A TENNIS BALL?>>NO. ( LAUGHTER )
NO, AND BY THE WAY, BIG NEWS WAS THAT THE PENTAGON, WAS TRACKING
UFOs.>>Stephen: RIGHT, WE SAW THE
FOOTAGE. THEY RELEASED THE FOOTAGE FROM
LIKE, F-18 FIGHTER PILOTS ON THEIR SCOPE, TABLET-SHAPED
THING, ACCEL RATHE, STOPPING, ACCEL RATHE IN THINGS THEY CAN’T
EXPLAIN.>>THAT HAS A WAY BETTER CHANCE
OF BEING ALIENS THAN THIS. THOSE OBJECTS WERE DOING THINGS
THAT WERE NOT DPRAFITATIONAL.>>Stephen: DO YOU THINK
THEY’VE GOT SOMETHING THERE?>>I DON’T KNOW. HENCE THE “U” IN UFO.>>Stephen: I’M WITH YOU. I’M ON BOARD.>>ARE YOU GOING TO SAY– ARE
YOU GOING TO SAY– THIS IS A UFO, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS,
THEREFORE, IT’S INTELLIGENT ALIENS FROM OUTER SPACE. YOU SAID YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT IT
IS. YOU CAN’T BE CERTAIN OF
ANYTHING.>>Stephen: I’M HOPING.>>I’M HOPING, TOO. I WANT TO MEET THE ALIENS. BY THE WAY, IF YOU EVER MEET THE
ALIENS, THEY TAKE YOU ON BOARD, FIRST, TAKE SOME PHOTOS, FIRST. SECOND, WHEN THEY DO THE SEX
EXPERIMENTS ON YOU, OKAY– ( LAUGHTER ).>>HERE’S WHAT YOU DO–
( LAUGHTER ) THAT’S WHAT THEY DO. WE ALL KNOW THAT.>>Stephen: DON’T YOU HAVE TO
CHECK A BOX TO, LIKE, OPT IN TO THAT.>>HERE’S WHAT YOU DO, HERE’S
WHAT YOU DO– TELL THE ALIEN– SAY, “OH, LOOK OVER THERE,” AND
QUICKLY SNATCH SOMETHING OFF THE SHELF LEAK AN ASH TRAY OR
SOMETHING AND PUT IT IN YOUR POCKET AND LAY BACK ON THE SLAB. THEN WHEN THEY LET GO OF YOU,
YOU HAVE SOMETHING OF ALIEN MANUFACTURE.>>Stephen: SO IN THIS
SCENARIO, THE ALIENS SMOKE?>>YES.>>Stephen: IF I SEE THEM, I
WILL GIVE THEM THIS, WHICH IS YOUR BOOK “NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON,
ASTROPHYSICS FOR PEOPLE IN A HURRY.” A “NEW YORK TIMES” BESTSALER FOR
34 WEEKS.>>CRAZY, CRAZY.>>Stephen: EXTRAORDINARY.>>I’M DELIGHTED APPETITE IS OUT
THERE. MAYBE IT OPPOSE DOORS FOR MANY
MORE SCIENCE BOOKS TO APPEAR THERE.>>Stephen: DO YOU HAVE A
FAVORITE THING?>>OH! MAY I?>>Stephen: IT’S YOUR BOOK,
MAN. IT’S YOUR BOOK.>>OH, MAY I?>>Stephen: SURE.>>SO REFLECTIONS ON THE COSMIC
PERSPECTIVE. THE WORDS I’M ABOUT TO READ ARE
NOT MINE. THEY’RE BY JAMES FERGUSON, A
PHYSICIST FROM THE 1700s. IF I MAY.>>Stephen: YOU MAY. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: OKAY.>>FIMAY.>>Stephen: I’LL GET YOU A
GLASS OF MEADE.>>JAMES FERGUSON, 1757. “OF ALL THE SCIENCES CULTIVATED
BY MANKIND, ASTRONOMY IS ACKNOWLEDGED TO BE AND
UNDOUBTEDLY IS THE MOST SUBLIME, THE MOST INTERESTING, AND THE
MOST USEFUL, FOR BY KNOWLEDGE DERIVED FROM THIS SCIENCE, NOT
ONLY THE BULK OF THE EARTH IS DISCOVERED, BUT OUR VERY
FACULTIES ARE ENLARGE WITH THE GRANDEUR OF THE IDEAS IT
CONVEYS. OUR MINDS EXALTED ABOVE THEIR
LOW, CONTRACTED PREJUDICES.” ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
♪ ♪ ♪>>Stephen: 34 WEEKS. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU FOR 10. LET’S MAKE IT AN EVEN TWO
DIGITS.>>OKAY.>>Stephen: “ASTROPHYSICS FOR
PEOPLE IN A HURRY” IS AVAILABLE NOW, AND “STAR TALK” IS ON
NAT- GEO SUNDAYS.

100 thoughts on “Neil DeGrasse Tyson: Is This Thing A Spaceship?

  1. You can actually see Neil trying hard to not give out too much, he was actually surprised by Stephen's analogy about gravity and travel. and the Initial question remains unanswered btw the laughter?
    Then Niel tries to make fun of the whole thing.. why is he trying to make fun of this? trying to hide something from us ? It is a possibility, maybe one in a billion billion and scientists are crazy about that as well.. but not when we talk about aliens.. well the jig is up..?

  2. The only comedy on the comedy network comes form the fact that millions of people base their political opinions on the sayings of a guy who talks like he has an elementary school level of education.

  3. ALIENS, DON'T TRUST THE BLACK HUMANS!!!!
    If you've seen our movie transmissions, imagine if the Alien from the same namesake's movie got aboard your spaceship.
    That's what they do.

  4. It's moving by leftover inertia from whatever supernova turned its original planet into rubble millions of years ago, in a galaxy far, far away.

  5. REAL REASON why we have not had alien contact us or make an appearance:
    (Aliens arrive to Earth): “Well…Fellas…Neil deGrasse Tyson is still alive. Let’s get the F outta here. Let’s come back in 50 years.
    VAMENOS GWEYYYYYYYY” (Yes, these are Mexican aliens) THIS LAST LINE WAS JUST TOO EASY. LOL

  6. 3:05 Neil looks at his manager/agent: You stupid son of a bitch, I can’t believe you booked me on this show” 🤦🏻‍♂️

  7. The end Quote translation: Look To The Stars To Forget Your Stereotypes, Your Brain Is An Astral Pattern Of Light. Learn to use it on the earth and its humans.

  8. Niel is a tool. If you don't know what it(UFO) is open your mind to the possibility that it could be anything including alien. He is just here to plug his book. He isn't given access to the UFO files for a reason. He isn't alien friendly.

  9. Wake up people. How can an interstellar object visit our Universe when by definition, all interstellar objects are already and always have been, inside our Universe. Unless of course you guys and gals at the Late Show know of some other Universes that exist! Well, do you?

    Maybe you were thinking of an inter-Galactic interstellar object that has entered OUR galaxy from another, maybe Andromeda. You people need to have a chat with NDT yourselves!

  10. Tyson is a quack and everybody knows it. This guy is popular for the same reason Obama is, because if you don't like him, then you are a racist. Carl Sagan was the OG and a 1000x better than this guy. There are plenty of real black scientists who know what they are doing, unfortunately Tyson isn't one of them. See the media constantly picks these hip, gansta type stereotypical black men to portray black culture. They don't pick real black men who can actually get the job done or are serious because then that would signal to the world that black men are actually super intelligent. Instead the liberal media will portray the stereotypical gansta buffoon type character as the real deal. What the black man does not know is, he is actually being made fun of. They are laughing at him and not with him! That's what liberals are great at, keeping minorities suppressed by holding them to a stereotypical image.

  11. What utter tripe, not aliens but if it is grab an ashtray before they probe you? If this is the best they have to prove there's interstellar cigars in our solar system you guys better get used to the idea that space activity is completely fraudulent and astronomy is nothing more than the observation of the movement of the sky.

  12. I thought his answer was pretty dumb when he explained why it’s not aliens just because it was launched away by gravity but we do the same things with our rockets we determine the trajectory so why couldn’t the aliens

  13. space is fake, there are no photographs, just artist renders. wake up sheeple………….i've seen giant skeletons and there weapons.

    winter is cuming.

  14. Is it me, or are there times in this video when Neil seems like he's about to absolutely talk shit to Stephen but he just smiles and laughs instead? He got really heated when Stephen insisted it was a spaceship but bit his tongue and laughed instead of calling him a dumbass like he clearly wanted to

  15. Steven destroyed Neil career with this very logical argument. Neil cant say no creator any more. Someone pushed the pen then the pen followed the gravity law. Am embressee how he silenced neil. Wow

  16. An obvious interstellar visitor passed by us to see how we're doing. This is like watching monkeys trying to explain how a fucking stealth bomber works.

  17. A giant rock, however, Navy pilots are chasing down UFO's.
    Ships that accelerate and turn like nothing that is possible, even with a F-22 or the fastest missile.

  18. Tyson makes a mockery of abduction, when humans have been mutilated in some of the more horrific cases. Yeah, really fucking hilarious, Neil. Also, shit like the Cash-Landrum incident, where people were permanently disfigured by the anomalous craft that they were exposed to. Oh, and Karla Turner was making incredible headway into the abduction side of the phenomenon as she thought it related to the US military and govt, just before she was killed by, not kidding, an "unknown fast-acting cancer". Our govt has been complicit in abducting, experimenting on, and killing, its own citizens for decades.

  19. I don't think oumouamoua is a ship either, but Neil's being a little dishonest here with his argument. He said analien ship would be doing all kinds of crazy maneuvers, even outlining the type of maneuvering he meant with his finger, but ships in space don't fly like fighter jets like in star wars. Neil knows that. I love him but he could've made a better argument.

  20. Hey I kniw,you from Earth Science in h s. For kids who weren't acadamians, and,WE STILL KNOW MORE then that waste of space in the Whore, in Whute House. .

  21. I honestly cant wait to have Aliens be 100% confirmed, so all the religious ppl can STFU about their gods and we once and for all shut up about who has the best god, but instead we simply realize we share the same home and need to work together to fix the century old issues we have created. We've ppl starving, we've ppl dying from lack of water, we've ppl killing one another because the other thinks their " god " is bigger and better. Imagine if we all stopped praying to old gods and instead looked to one another to simply just be better ppl to one another and stopped fighting over some small footage of land. Its a very simple concept and one that would end millions upon millions of ppl from suffering the stupidity of others. Who's going to be the group to take the first step? To honestly think in the millions upon millions of galaxies that the Earth is the highest power is the highest form of arrogance and stupidity. We so need to come together and just help one another and leave the " god talk " at the front door.

  22. Our Voyager 1 space craft does just that…floats under the influence of gravity does it not Mr Tyson? However, I personally don't believe this rock…what ever is a spaceship…

  23. he said that isn't a actual picture it was drawn and he also said they got a signal saying it was basically something long.this is why you have never seen actual footage of the world or space shit lol

  24. Neil Degrass Tyson is an exemplary representation of Excellence ; and a jolly old soul .
    Would love to see him play Santa Claus 🎅 in a skit featuring him taking children on his sled ; traversing the Cosmos 😆

  25. People still believe in space like they believe 9/11 was caused by terrorist
    NDT stated that pic was fake, but this pic looks identical like the pics of earth from nasa

  26. Neil DeGrasse Tyson was fun the first year, now the dude just go anywhere he can get air time , sometimes he talks just because . bring scientist that are doing shit, like Michio kaku. he actually WORKS on a cool little project called STRING THEORY . while this dude is ……………making jokes

  27. i wounder if clevland was based off neil if family guy did a live action family guy neil would have to play cleveland

  28. Climate change solutions.. giant solar energy powered snow making machines for the arctic ice melting.
    But no… lets talk about space and Mars.. any thing from this dude but climate change aolutions🤮🤪🤪🥥
