    Today's science is tomorrow's superstitious witch doctory. They will look back and say, this Tyson and his associates... hilarious thinking the universe is actually accessible and one can TRAVEL THROUGH IT! Billions of years old? Humans exploring the universe and other star systems let alone their own solar system and planets? HAHAHAHAHA! Such arrogance. We humans are merely pets for our overlords and there is no purpose to our existence. Tyson accuses others of being delusional and is secure in his belief system that he is right and they are DELUSIONAL. Good luck with that Neil.
