Neil deGrasse Tyson On Killer Asteroids, Dinosaurs, and Blowing Stuff Up

Astrophysicist, author, and Interplanetary Man of Mystery Neil deGrasse Tyson stopped by The Daily Show last night to talk about a bit about how the universe is constantly trying to destroy us. And about how the dinosaurs probably didn’t die from slapstick-related injuries. He also comes up with a new national motto, relates the tragic tale of The Space Bat, and manages to give Jon Stewart a hard time, which is always fun… Check out Part One of their chat below, and the extended interview at Part Two and Three!
