I miss Carl Sagan. Neil Degrasse Tyson is too much of an establishment apologist. Sagan would have questioned the $200 billion military budget increase in a time where there is many other social programs that money could have been invested in.

You are like an innocent child NDT... The military will not clean space or defend against asteroids. They want to build orbital bombardment weapon platforms. That's what Trump wants anyway, unaware that there are International treaties that forbid it. It's not nuclear and no other nation has the means to do it, so they will classify them separately than other WMDs, and start dropping tungsten rods on countries that won't give them their oil a few megatons at a time. Now you might expect that splitting space command from the air force will lower the air force budget and reallocate part of it to the new space force... Yeah, right...

Neil DeGrasse Tyson is pro anything that would throw billions at the ridiculous expenses of space exploration. So basically he’s just trying to protect his job at the expense of the planet. Rather than wasting all that money and resources on looking outside the planet, why not just use it to settle our home planet instead? Synthetic Non-Vegitrian food, Global Warming, A-Forestation, Pollution control, alternate fuels, Law Enforcement etc, all these things can be helped move in leaps and bounds if the same amount of money and intellectual resources are used on them.

Common sense ... common sense is that even in our world military excursions (Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Rohngya, Israel/Palestine) always lead to blow back (in the form of terrorism, ISIS, etc.). Until World War ... it's the same inescapable concept. But since the result is not immediate nobody cares to give it a second thought unfortunately. May God guide us towards unity and peace.

One thing I bet most people don't realize when they hate on the idea of a space force is that nuclear bombs travel through space to get to their destination. I don't know about them, but I don't feel like getting hit with a nuke. We have technology to stop them, but it's far from perfect. It would be nice if we a branch that could have more of a focus on threats like that.

A space force really isn't a bad idea. But the way trump thinks of it is pretty dumb. And we already have a space force plus NASA as Neil said. I don't think trump even knows that it existed. Space Exploration is already being taken care of. But having a force that will clean up space and create defenses against asteroids and stuff like that would be very great. Neil really came through and correctly informed everybody and made stephen look underwhelmed (love stephen btw).

When you said "orange man" you already showed your lack of intelligence.

So maybe some of us should watch this again. The scientist, whom is probably a little smarter than most of us, states a few things. If Trump says it, it does not make it a bad idea, BRAVO. However he clearly informs us A. this is not a new idea, and B. it is not Trumps idea because we are already doing it. By the way Colbert is a comedian, if you don't like him why are you watching him. Nor did I see him blast Trump to any major degree. He actually busted on Obama when he was in office, because as a comedian, its part of his gig. By the way the Astrophysicist, whom is probably smarter than most of us, believes we are impacting climate change and does not support most of Trumps rhetoric. Maybe we might want to listen to the people who are actually smart, studying and solving big problems, and have done something with themselves without Daddies help (Trump).
Jeff O
Jeff O 3 kun oldin
Colbert busted on Obama in a playful way. Colbert busts on Trump because he genuinely hates him. Colbert is your typical hateful liberal. He's not Carson, he's not Leno, and, yes, he's not even Letterman. Colbert is well-read and knows current events, but that doesn't change the facts of the kind of person he is. And Trump became very successful without "Daddies" help. Doesn't matter that he inherited money. He turned money into a lot more money with his entrepreneurial spirit and did things in business and television that people can only dream about doing... including yourself.
pop5678eye 3 kun oldin
Looking at the comments, apparently Trump supporters only paid attention to the video up to the point that Neil says 'it's not a crazy idea.' Then tuned out as he immediately followed it up by explaining it is not Trump's idea at all and we already have had a Space Command for over half a century... But sure, let's give Trump credit for inventing everything. Before the end of the year Trump supporters will say he invented social media, building tall buildings, and golf for that matter.

He contradicted himself. If you can't launch a counter-defensive attack in space because it would be self-destructive, then Space Force is a pointless waste of money.

pop5678eye 3 kun oldin
The part that Neil is a bit dishonest about is that 'I don't have a horse in that race...' As himself admits, historically many of the technologies and achievements of space exploration were a biproduct of research for military purposes. Heck, we didn't even form NASA until after the first human flights, rather we used an IRBM (the Redstone rocket) developed for the army to shoot Shepard and Grissom into space, and the Atlas was always developed as a nuclear-armed ICBM before slapping a Mercury capsule on top to carry Glenn into orbit. More space funding, even if for military is always beneficial for space exploration, even if indirectly.
pop5678eye 3 kun oldin
Let's not give too much credit to Trump, just because by accident he likes an idea that has already been basically established anyway. Trump hardly even understands what space flight is in the first place, but surely he will try to take credit by talking down to American citizens as if nobody else was already aware of basic facts: 'Did you know that there is a whole part of the universe where there is no air? It's unbelievable. And we can get there using rockets. Amazing. But Russia and China already went there. It's just my opinion perhaps we should go there too. But it's not as easy as it sounds. Nobody knew how hard it is to get to space. I've heard it's like hundreds of miles up, and you have to carry all the air with you. Unbelievable.'
Jeff O

Putting words into Trump's mouth that he never even said. Fantasizing that Trump thinks this way or that way. You liberals are completely lost. Btw, Obama cut NASA's budget. Seems Trump understands "space flight" more than your Messiah.

EasternAnime 3 kun oldin
Ok, so the space force thing is a bad idea because it perpetuates and facilitates the continuance of general warfare and endless conflict. The fact that the administration that cut space exploration funds is the one advocating this should cast doubt in the mind of any of us who think that this will be primarily or even tangentially beneficial to the human race in general. While there have been scientific advancements derived from past military exploits, they were primarily a side effect and we should not forget that the reason these advancements were being made and said technology developed was to wage war. This space force will be a military machination and will as is it's wont function in ways that further the "interests" of the American establishment and the military industrial complex first and the general public ,at a cost, second. I thought what we had in space exploration was an opportunity to work together as one towards the goal of advancing human knowledge. I thought being physically removed from the globe would lessen the probability of conflicts there spreading to the final frontier but it seems greed and fear have no limits. Make no mistake the existence of the space force will, in the minds of our rulers, give life to their claims of "foreign threats, and the threats will of course necessitate a resurgent military response thus fuelling conflict because the economic success the united states has benefited from over the past 50+ years has been supported by spoils claimed and clutched from the carcasses of so called enemy regimes and rougue states. Edit: And overthrowing and controlling territory requires military force.
