About This Episode

Spoiler Alert: In our latest “How Tweet It Is” video, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye discuss one of Neil’s tweets about the “Mysteries of Interstellar: Can’t imagine a future where escaping Earth via a wormhole is a better plan than just fixing Earth.” While neither disagrees that a worldwide environmental blight could happen, it’s what we do about it that was less believable. Or, as Bill says, “Why leave the freaking Earth, people? This is where we make our stand.” Plus, find out “a little more somethin’ somethin’” about another one of Bill’s problems with the movie.
