Neil deGrasse Tyson: Facing the Ultimate Frontier and What Encourages Science


By on 3:27 PM


Here's another wonderful video from the great Neil deGrasse Tyson. It's also long, --over two hours-- making it great for road trips or to have playing in the background while working -- after-all who wouldn't want to listen to the wonderful and knowledgeable words of Neil Tyson for as long as possible?

Tyson makes several interesting points in this video; the importance of NASA and how it relates to the future if the United States, how education can be improved, and –perhaps most importantly – the drivers behind the advancement of science and what will need to be done to encourage additional investment into scientific study and space exploration.
Which brings up several interesting points. Do the influences Tyson mentions really cause almost all scientific advancement? And does the coming emergence of other space-faring countries mean the United States will increase research and funding for space-related activities due to the increased competition, and more importantly fear? Does this mean that we are inevitably moving toward the militarization of space?
