The Mystery That Keeps Neil deGrasse Tyson Up At Night


MY FIRST
GUEST TONIGHT IS THE BELOVE THE ASTROPHYSICIST, AUTHOR, AND
DIRECTOR OF THE HAYDEN PLANETARIUM AT THE MUSEUM OF
NATURAL HISTORY. PLEASE WELCOME MY FRIEND, NEIL
DEGRASSE TYSON! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
♪ ♪ ♪ GOOD TO SEE YOU. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: NEIL.>>BEAUTIFUL– I LOVE THE STARS.>>Stephen: JUST FOR YOU, MY
FRIEND, JUST FOR YOU.>>LOVE WHAT YOU’VE DONE WITH
THE PLACE.>>Stephen: THANK YOU VERY
MUCH.>>THANK YOU.>>Stephen: NOW, ON THE OLD
GIG OVER ON THE OTHER NETWORK, UPPER THE GUEST I HAD MORE THAN
ANY OTHER GUEST.>>REALLY?>>Stephen: YEAH– YOU KNOW,
YOU KNOW THAT –>>COULD IT BE THAT I LIVE
NEARBY, SO I WAS A CHEAP DATE?>>Stephen: COULD IT BE WE
MOVED THE STUDIO SOME PLACE CLOSE TO YOU SO WE COULD BE NEAR
YOU, NEIL. I JUST FOUND OUT YOU’RE ALSO–
YOU’RE HOLDING A VAST LEAD ON ANYBODY ELSE ON THIS SHOW. YOU’VE BEEN ON NINE TIMES. NINE TIMES! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
NUMBER TWO. DO YOU KNOW WHO NUMBER TWO IS.>>NO.>>Stephen: JOHN OLIVER.>>IS THAT RIGHT?>>Stephen: SIX.>>OKAY, OKAY.>>Stephen: BUT THANK YOU VERY
MUCH.>>BUT THE UNIVERSE IS VASTER
THAN ANYTHING ELSE IN THE UNIVERSE. ( LAUGHTER ).>>Stephen: WHAT? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? DON’T PRE-BLOW MY MIND. DON’T PRE-BLOW MY MIND BEFORE
I’M READY FOR IT. WE HAVE TO LOT TO DO HERE.>>THERE’S A LOT IN THE UNIVERSE
TO TALK ABOUT, RELATIVE TO ANYTHING ELSE IN THE UNIVERSE.>>Stephen: FIRST OF ALL,
HAPPY NEW YEAR.>>THANK YOU, HAPPY NEW YEAR TO
YOU.>>Stephen: NOW, DOES THE NEW
YEAR HAVE ANY PARTICULAR ASTRONOMICAL SIGNIFICANCE?>>NO.>>Stephen: WHY NOT?>>NOT, NOT —
>>Stephen: WE’VE GONE AROUND THE SUN ONCE.>>THE PLACE WHERE WE RETURN TO,
THERE’S NOTHING SPECIAL OR INTERESTING ABOUT IT. IT’S A COMPLETELY ARBITRARY SPOT
ON THE CALENDAR THAT WE HAVE CHOSEN TO CELEBRATE THE NEW
YEAR. PLUS IT’S– I THINK IT’S A
LITTLE WEIRD THAT WE ALL CELEBRATE THAT INSTANT THAT THE
BALL DROPS, AND THEN ONE HOUR LATER, THEY CELEBRATE EXACTLY
THE SAME THING, AND THEN AN HOUR LATER, AN HOUR LATER– THEY DO
THAT 24 TIMES AROUND THE WORLD.>>Stephen: I KNOW HOW CLOCKS
WORK, NEIL. ( LAUGHTER ).>>THE WORLD IS NOT CELEBRATING
THE SAME MOMENT. IT’S KIND OF– IT’S ODD TO ME AS
AN ASTROPHYSICIST. BUT THAT’S FINE. IT’S CULTURE. THAT’S HOW WE DO IT.>>Stephen: COULD YOU BE MORE
NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON RIGHT NOW? YOU LIVE– YOU LIVE TO SUCK THE
JOY OUT OF OTHER PEOPLE’S TRADITIONS.>>NO, NO.>>Stephen: WHAT DO YOU LOVE? WHAT IS WORTH CELEBRATING? IF IT’S NOT NEW YEAR’S–
>>ALMOST EVERY OTHER HOLIDAY IN THE YEAR HAS SOME ASTRONOMICAL
BASIS. THE CHINESE NEW YEAR, THE JEWISH
NEW YEAR, RAMADAN, EASTER, LENT —
>>Stephen: TOYOTATHON. ALL OF IT!>>ALL OF IT. SATURNALIA. CHRISTMAS —
>>Stephen: WHAT DOES SATURNALIA HAVE?>>SATURNALIA, IT’S BACK IN THE
WINTER IT’S SUN IS GETTING LOWER AND LOWER IN THE SKY EACH DAY
AND WORRY THAT MAYBE IT WILL NEVER COME BACK.>>Stephen: IS SATURN GETTING
HIGHER IN THE SKY?>>NO BUT SATURN IS THE GOD YOU
PLAY TO AND CELEBRATE. SO SATURNALIA EVERYTHING SLIPS,
THE MIDDLE EASTER SERVES THE SLAVES, THE SLAVES GIVE
COMMANDS. IT’S AN INTERESTING ROMAN
TRADITION THAT IS LONG GONE.>>Stephen: ALL RIGHT.>>BUT I’M SAYING IT’S IN THAT
TIME OF THE YEAR WHERE THE SUN IS BASICALLY REBORN, SO IT’S
SOLSTICE CELEBRATIONS. AND CHRISTMAS WAS PUT THERE TO
BE A GOOD PLACE TO SORT OF BRING IN ALL THE PAYING AN WORSHIPERS,
WHO WERE ALREADY CELEBRATING THAT TIME OF YEAR.>>Stephen: AND IT WORKED.>>IT WORK, OH, YEAH.>>Stephen: WE WON. SO 2018, WHAT’S GOT YOU EXCITED
FOR 2018. ( LAUGHTER )
WE WON. WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? WE WON. WHAT’S GOT YOU EXCITED–
>>WAIT, JUST TO BE CLEAR.>>Stephen: OKAY.>>YOU NOT ONLY WON THERE. YOU WON THE CALENDAR RACE, TOO.>>Stephen: HUH?>>THE WORLD’S CALENDAR IS THE
GREGORIAN CALENDAR AFTER POPE GREGORY PUT IN PLACE IN 1582. THE PREVIOUS JULIAN CALENDAR WAS
MESSING UP IN THE YEAR.>>Stephen: IT WAS OFF–
>>BY 10 DAYS! AND THE POPE SAID, “WE’VE GOT TO
FIX THIS.”>>Stephen: THE POPE FIXED IT?>>WELL, POPE, JESUIT
SCIENTISTS, JESUIT PRIESTS WERE THE ACADEMIC ORDER OF THE
CATHOLIC– YOU’RE CATHOLIC. YOU SHOULD BE TEACHING THIS,
OKAY? ( LAUGHTER ).>>Stephen: I’M AWARE OF MY
RELIGION.>>OKAY! SO THERE’S A VATICAN OBSERVATORY
TO THIS DAY THAT THAT AT THE TIME, BEFORE TELESCOPES WERE
INVENTED, THESE JESUIT PRIESTS WERE PUT INTO THE SERVICE OF
FIGURING OUT WHY THE CALENDAR WAS SHIFTING IN THE YEAR.>>Stephen: AM I CORRECT IN
SAYING THAT IT WAS A CATHOLIC PRIEST WHO FIRST PROPOSED THE
IDEA OF THE BIG BANG?>>YES, GEORGE LEMATRE, THE BIG
BANG ITSELF, USING EINSTEIN’S EQUATIONS. EINSTEIN COULD HAVE DONE IT, BUT
HE DID ENOUGH.>>Stephen: HE WAS BUSY.>>LAID DOWN THE EQUATIONS. OTHER PEOPLE CALCULATED WITH HIS
EQUATIONS AND HE DEDUCED THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE MUST
HAVE START WADE BANG.>>Stephen: OKAY. GOING TO 2018–
>>SO CATHOLICS HAVE BEEN IN THERE IN MULTIPLE —
>>Stephen: YOU DON’T HAVE TO TELL ME.>>OKAY.>>Stephen: I’M TEAM R.C. NOW–
>>TEAM ROMAN CATHOLIC.>>Stephen: YES, OKAY. ( APPLAUSE )
NOW– YOU’RE– YOU’RE WALKING FOOTNOTE, NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON.>>I DIDN’T THINK YOU BROUGHT
PEOPLE WITH YOU ON THAT COMMENT. SO I WAS JUST HELPING IT OUT.>>Stephen: YOU WERE WITH ME. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
OKAY.>>NO, NO, THAT’S NOT HOW YOU
ASK IT. WHO WAS NOT WITH HIM? ( APPLAUSE )
SEE? THERE YOU GO.>>Stephen: I FEEL BETRAYED. ( LAUGHTER )
SO 2018, LET ME GET TO THE SECOND QUESTION OF THE
INTERVIEW. IN 2018, WHAT MYSTERY ARE YOU
MOST INTERESTED IN SCIENCE CRACKING? OR WHAT DO YOU THINK WE ARE
LIKELY TO LEARN THIS YEAR THAT WE’RE CLOSE TO FIGURING OUT?>>IN MY FIELD, THE GOOD THING
ABOUT IT IS, GENERALLY WE MAKE DISCOVERIES WHEN A MISSION IS
LAUNCHED. SO WE– SO WE KNOW WHEN TO BEGIN
TO EXPECT DISCOVERIES.>>Stephen: WHAT’S THE BIG
MISSION REACHING ITS FRUITION.>>THE MISSION NOW IS TO TRY TO
UNDERSTAND DARK MATTER AND DARK ENERGY MORE THAN WE CURRENTLY
DO.>>Stephen: OKAY.>>WE KNOW IT’S THERE, BUT IT’S
A COMPLETE MYSTERY. WE DON’T UNDERSTAND THE ORIGIN
OF 85% OF ALL THE GRAVITY OF THE UNIVERSE. IT’S NOT BLACK HOLES, COMETS,
STARS, PLANETS– IT’S NONE OF THE ABOVE.>>Stephen: SO THE MATH SAYS
THERE SHOULD BE MORE THERE BUT WE CAN’T SEE IT?>>RIGHT, IT’S MISSING GRAVITY
RATHER THAN MISSING MASS– I’M SORRY, IT’S GRAVITY WITH NO
KNOWN SOURCE.>>Stephen: WHICH IS WHAT I
SAID. WHEN IS WHAT I SAID A MOMENT
AGO.>>IT’S DARK GRAVITY.>>Stephen: WOW.>>IS REALLY WHAT IT IS. THEN– THEN THERE’S SOME
MYSTERIOUS PRESSURE IN THE VACUUM OF SPACE.>>Stephen: WHAT DO YOU MEAN?>>WHICH WE CALL DARK ENERGY. BEAUT BUTT WE SHOULD JUST CALL
IT FRED AND WILMA– I JOKE ABOUT THIS. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE. DON’T GIVE IT A NAME THAT MAKES
PEOPLE THINK WE KNOW WHAT IT IS BECAUSE WE DON’T KNOW WHAT IT
IS. IT’S A PRESSURE IN THE VACUUM OF
SPACE FORCING THE UNIVERSE TO ACCELERATE NONETHELESS
EXPANSION. AND I’VE WRITTEN ABOUT THIS
BECAUSE I LOSE SLEEP OVER THIS FACT–
( LAUGHTER ) CAN I SHARE THIS? I DON’T WANT TO BE BLAMED —
>>Stephen: I DON’T KNOW THAT I COULD STOP YOU. ( LAUGHTER ).>>I DON’T WANT TO BE BLAMED IF
YOU CANNOT GET TO SLEEP TONIGHT.>>Stephen: DO IT. I’LL BE OKAY.>>SO THIS DARK ENERGY IN THE
FUTURE WILL RENDER THE UNIVERSE SO LARGE, HAVING ACCELERATED SO
SIGNIFICANTLY, THAT ALL THE GALAXIES OF THE NIGHT SKY WILL
HAVE ACCELERATED BEYOND OUR HORIZON.>>Stephen: WHAT?>>ALL THE GALAXIES ARE THE
SOURCE OF OUR KNOWLEDGE OF COSMOLOGY, OF THE BIG BANG,
EVERYTHING WE KNOW ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE COMES TO
US FROM THESE GALAXIES. IF THEY ACCELERATE BEYOND OUR
HORIZON, THE NEXT GENERATION OF COSMIC EXPLORERS WILL ONLY HAVE
THE STARS OF THE MILKY WAY TO THINK ABOUT. AND I– SO, THERE’S AN– THERE
WOULD HAVE BEEN AN ENTIRE CHAPTER OF THE UNIVERSE RIPPED
FROM THEIR VIEW. AND THEY WILL BE TRYING TO
CONTEMPLATE AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE UNIVERSE WITHOUT A
SIGNIFICANT PART OF WHAT ITS PAST WAS. AND SO I LOSE SLEEP WONDERING,
TODAY, WAS THERE SOME PREVIOUS CHAPTER RIPPED FROM THE UNIVERSE
ITSELF? AND HERE WE ARE–
( LAUGHTER ) AND HERE WE ARE, YOU KNOW,
TOUCHING THE ELEPHANT, NOT KNOWING THAT IN FACT THERE’S AN
ELEPHANT STANDING THERE. OR MAYBE THERE’S THE SHADOW OF
THE ELEPHANT, AND THE ELEPHANT HAS BEEN MOVED. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WE DON’T
KNOW. AND THIS LEAVES ME WEAK AT
NIGHT. I SLIEWZ SLEEP OVER THAT.>>Stephen: I AM NOT GOING TO
GET A WINK. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THAT’S CRAZY. HOLD ON. WE’VE GOT TO TAKE A BREAK. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH MORE
NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON, EVERYBODY.

  1. So hes saying some planets and galaxies where in our view from our past and now there gone because the expansion of space.

  2. he was upset because nobody understood him in the end smh those pathetic swines!

  3. Lol.. the universe is vaster than anything else in the universe?

    Like the body is vaster than anything else in the body?

    #itsthelittlethingsthatmakeyouthink

  4. He didn’t explain anything or get to the point on anything same old same old it’s all theoretical ask him or any scientist they will admit there’s no proof of all this information cause we haven’t traveled in space yet so we need something to work with until we get that proof. Just like before Columbus made his voyage the Spanish proved to every country men the world was round…..

  5. Token. Blacks and Hispanics at elite schools have lower standardized test scores than whites and orientals in junior colleges, but we're not supposed to talk about it. It's because of racism, of course.

  6. He forgets it is all happening in the mind. Taking self from the equation is the biggest mistake only looking outside only raises more questions. Looking inside we see darkness has no beginning or end and is the only truth.

  7. If civilization ever finds a faster way to travel, will it be able to keep up with the continues acceleration of other galaxies. Everything is not only moving away from each other, the forces of dark gravity will continue to exert it's influence of acceleration.

  8. I just watched @Melodysheep's video called Timelapse Of The Future. It is Fascinating! I highly recommend it.

  9. Bismuth takes 100 billion times longer than age of universe to decay so dark matter and dark energy than will take over.

    Mark 9:48
    where "'the worms that eat them do not die, and the fire is not quenched.'

    Find the original book of Enoch and I can explain spiritual realties huh?

    Isaiah 29:8
    as when a hungry person dreams of eating, but awakens hungry still; as when a thirsty person dreams of drinking, but awakens faint and thirsty still. So will it be with the hordes of all the nations that fight against Mount Zion.

    2 Peter 3:

    5But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water.

    7By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.

    Habakkuk 2:14
    For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.

  10. Actually he's wrong! We celebrate New Years more than 24 times because there's a couple spots in the world that are on a half hour time zone!

  11. Hey Neil degrasshole Tyson; we can not get Hydrogen Peroxide Engines to produce any thrust in Vacuum chamber tests. Can you let the tax payers know how NASA maneuvers or propels craft in the perfect vacuum of space with todays rocket thrusters / engines? Test after test have proven our math to be correct; all expanding gas "thrust" produced in a vacuum is consumed by the vacuum leaving, zero, zilch. nil, nada, 0, usable energy. Thanks for you time we look forward to your explanation. God Bless America. WWG1WGA

  12. Previous chapter, interesting…something to wonder about, yet gladly unknown, as that chapter is gone and unnecessary for where we are now, yet still an interesting thought.

  13. thank you universe for Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Elon musk… the two people who inspire me to think beyond money and women…

  14. Watching my two favorite orators engage in verbal intercourse, this was like comic cosmic brain porn…

  15. I always remember Sherman Klump played by Eddie Murphy in
    The Nutty Professor when I see this clown talking.

  16. That is the most obvious thing ever, how could you people be amazed at that? Isn't this just common knowledge?

  17. Catch me calling off work to celebrate my new religious observed holiday, Toyotathon

  18. Well for a short while there, those sexual misconduct accusers were what kept him up at night… Good thing he was forgiven of of his sin even if they were just insinuations, he has 1 more chance at freedom, let's hope he doesn't screw it up like R Kelly👨🏿‍🎤 or Epstein 👨‍🦳 did 😂 .

  19. Is everyone getting fat person spandex ad or just me?

    I'm not fat. Someone please let google ads know. Or is it YouTube ads?

  20. "Why is our universe fine-tuned for life?" Brian Greene in HIS talk, also mentions this fact that galaxies are expanding away, and will leave "future astronomers" nothing! since Brian Green supposes that future astronomers will think that OUR universe is an "oasis" with all this darkness and no other galaxies….., But i think, maybe, since we are not the center of cosmos, some other galaxy, on its ever-increasing "flying away", just MIGHT pass by our galaxy, giving future astronomers some perspective on where everything was, is, going to be and that there are in fact other galaxies…

    But my question is: "does all this mean that each galaxy is a relative center, so they are all just flying away into nothing, never to meet other ones? This would mean humanity is in the starting or middle stages of this "fly-away", however, it is also possible that we are in the end of this "fly-away" cycle where all these, now visible galaxies simply popped up beside ours from another dimension? Either way, saying we are in the beginning or middle is just a display of our limited brain, since there is never a beginning, middle or end, it is all happening now, yet it has already ended.

  21. Theory:
    Dark matter/energy is the final base energy to be discovered. Once it is discovered and measurable there will not be anything left to peel away so to say. Essentially if u find anti dark matter and anti dark energy you create a true void and a glimpse outside our universe

  22. "We don't know what we don't know, I lose sleep over that" What the hell for? Isn't that why you're a scientist, to learn and strive to turn what you don't know, into what you do know? He makes science sound like an anxiety disorder XD

  23. Why is he clapping himself? Been on nine times? Sounds a lot like availability to me.

  24. As smart as this guy is supposed to be..Neither him nor and other scholar understands that whole "big bang" was God; lets stop trying to figure out a mystery we don't understand. He just woke up one day from being bored and was like "Aight, lets entertain thyself"…and he we are ppl..

  25. Neil deGrasse Tyson is SO cool and hilarious!… and what he said was SO profound and pertinent!

  26. I forgot how amazing NDT is at teaching… makes me wanna buy a telescope

  27. Shadows on the equator move in two directions a straight line to and from the object from sun up to sun down. LOL

    UP IS SIMPLY UP AND DOWN WILL NEVER BE UP.

  28. Whether any more women he harassed or raped will go public. https://www.vox.com/2019/7/29/8934845/neil-degrasse-tyson-misconduct-allegation-investigation-museum

  29. 0:22 I'm that excited as the man in green when I see Neil Degrasse 😂😂😂😂😂😂

  30. Don't mess with the Jesuits folks. Learned, wise, worldly men who have risen high in the ranks of the church…look at our current Pope.

  31. Say what you want about the man, he is such a specialist, intelligent and is a pro in his science. and has a great sense of humor too. But also dramatic and very passionate as well his whole demeanor.. watch out women for the crazy scientist

  32. I dont know why the guy who said a helicopter with engine failure just falls from the sky is seen as one of the most intelligent people on earth…i do like him but come on he isnt what people make out of him.

  33. November 18, 2055 @ Washington, District of Columbia
    The public adress system resumes communcsation with over fifteen thousand people who eagerly stand at anticipation upon the famous landmark, "Ladies and Gentlemen, please rise for the National Anthem performed by Justin Beiber and say he!!o to The **NEW** President of the United States, Mister Neil.
    DeeeeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEE
    TYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYSON!!!"

  34. well, to drive Mr deGrasses Point even further, there is this theory where the universe did not start with a big bang, but is in an endless cycle of expansion and collapse. Imagine what we don't know from the last cycles.

  35. The (lunar) new year is not arbitrary. Nare is each new month nor each day. The celestial objects exist to tell the times and seasons.

  36. NASA discovered that its snowing in space! Miraculous! It has everything to do with the new planet they recently discovered, Snoballiru. Theres no footage yet, because it's impossible to see Snoballiru with a telescope from Earth, just like it's impossible to see Earth with a telescope from the Moon or ISS…. but the 10 billion research funds are approved, covered by the peoples taxes. So we can expect the proof soon, their still in the creation fase. Ow, and also nice to here, because it's all about snow and snow, NASA started a joint venture with the specialist space agency of the far North, SANTA…..I don't know….seems kinda strange…I'll bet this is a big lie…..everything they come up with, will be edited or animated….everything they provide us to see will be fake….but he…$10 billion …easy money stealing and lots of people covering it…why? Good question for the SpinBall Earth community …Or Elon Musk, he mentions it in his book "The book of Elon" Where he's already mentioned the production lines of the Tesla Elfs and Toothla Ferry with its new Stardust Engines….I don't trust this….

  37. This pessimist is trying to fuel the fire of disbelief seriously prove something though your discoveries are lame and under par scientist these days like Neil catch more sexual harassment cases then discoveries all they do is doubt how lame and ignore and give little

  38. 😏😏😏 If born in the olden times Stephen would've been a fantastic Catholic scientist.

  39. Initially everything was together. 😊😊 All the stars and galaxies and dark matter and dark energy.

  40. It makes sense that everything is expanding apart in acceleration as intelligent beings are becoming more and more powered and need more room for their dangerously stupid sphere of activities.

  41. Has he been invited back since it came out he is a sexual predator that raped a load of students?

  42. I willingly watched @UCMtFAi84ehTSYSE9XoHefig. I shall have to mark the occasion on my Gregorian Calendar.

  43. I willingly watched Stephen Colbert!. I shall have to mark the occasion on my Gregorian Calendar.

  44. I willingly watched @UCMtFAi84ehTSYSE9XoHefig. I shall have to mark the occasion on my Gregorian Calendar.

  45. hahahaha too funny… answers about dark matter.. "it's there but we don't know where".. fucking joke..LOL… they guess a lot.. lol.. they cant prove shit about all this crap … things 21 or 33 light years away ..huh? you can see them?? ummm no but we can see wee tiny spots of light on our big shiny expensive space spy thingies… yes for sure.. oh wait, it was a speck of seagull shit… oops my bad.. fakers and liars a lot methinks… lol..
