Beloved Scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson Fact-checked Gravity

The Internet's favorite scientist, Reddit regular, and the future host of the second coming of Carl Sagan's Cosmos, Neil deGrasse Tyson had some thoughts on Gravity. Of course he did. And they weren't so much thoughts as they were scientific truths. Thanks to Twitter, he laid them all out as "mysteries" —implying that some of the science in Gravity is a bit "far out." (It's a movie!)

 

 

At least they got one thing right?

And in case you thought this Twitter fact-check session meant he didn't enjoy the movie:
