Neil deGrasse Tyson Sets The Record Straight: Aliens, Pyramids, Time Travel, Horoscopes & Racial Relations In America

Astrophysicist, cosmologist, author and TV personality, Neil deGrasse Tyson is one smart guy.  Joining Sway In The Morning to speak on his new show “StarTalk” which airs on National Geographic on Monday nights, Tyson shares his thoughts on some of science’s biggest mysteries as he sets the record straight.

Starting his clarifications off by speaking on the pyramids, Tyson thinks that people don’t give our species enough credit for being incredibly smart many years ago.  Dismissing the idea of aliens we hear Tyson explain by theorizing that people all over the world most likely built many different structures but only pyramids survived because of their sheer stability.

We also hear Tyson give his two cents on the idea of Area 51 as he jokes that the government is not capable of such an elaborate cover up if they couldn’t keep the Clinton scandal under the rug.  Tyson also covers the subject of time travel and horoscopes with a very easy to understand explanation.
