Neil deGrasse Tyson: The Pluto Files ( Excerpt - 2012 Doomsday Scenario )

I usually don't post things up that are of a scientific/solar system nature but, this particular video has to do with everyone & thing.

We've all heard about the whole 2012, doomsday, end of days scenario, Neil deGrasse Tyson takes on this matter in this video. I caution you now, if you are sensitive to issues, do NOT watch this.

  1. I'll ask Mr. deGrasse the same question that I would ask any of the doomsayers: how do YOU know?

    It's not OK to predict the end of the world, but it's OK to predict that it won't happen?

    Mr. deGrasse likes to make fun of the people who believe in Nirubu (I don't believe in it, incidentally), but astronomers haven't explored even one percent of the sky... and even NASA can't really explain the Kuiper cliff, without the existence of a planetary body out there, sweeping away the matter.

    Mr. deGrasse SHOULD undertstand that you can't really prove a negative, but I suspect that he's more interested in being entertaining, than educational.
