      Not even discovering that Nazis are hiding out on the planet Vega and are planning a comeback is gonna unify humanity.

          Neil is such a fun and happy and open person , you can tell that this accusation pained him within and clearly he ddnt expect it ...say what you may. Personally I think some of the #Metoo women are just out for attention. Shoot me in the head for truth but everyone knows this.😓

                            The.government took us to the moon and hes acting like the government cant hide a lie. The moon landing is a lie case and point. There is no evidence of us going to the moon. Remember how they lost all the tech and the videos alllllllll got deleted. Just bulshit and they know retarded ppl will believe it so they go with it and get a real good head.count of all the sheep out there.

                            6:20 is the whole point of this conversation. To plant the brainwashing idea and an applause from the crowd(you) that the gov not only doesn't lie to the ppl but they also couldn't even pull it off. This content is for the kids not the already knowing. The go after the younger generations with this type of info. They know exactly what they are doing.

                              Don't think finding E.T. or even a full on alien invasion would unify the denizens of this lightly salted rock.

                                      America is glorifying sexual assault.
                                      And promoting science fiction.

                                      Do you guys know the rest of the world is sitting back and laughing at you?

                                              Neil Tyson is great. He’s really inspiring me to get into science.

                                              Also just saying the Me Too movement has gotten to far, those women just want fame.

Not only is the ISS feed down and replaced with a video, the DSCOVR satellite that used to upload hourly images of the whole planet Earth has also conveniently developed a fault. There's something out there and they're not telling us. I think that an alien spacecraft has arrived and they're doing meetings in orbit with world leaders and they want to keep the whole thing quiet.
