Tyson: 'when the aliens come, we'll all know'

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson spoke out about the US Navy's UFO videos during a recent TV interview.
Speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper on Wednesday, Tyson seemed less than impressed by the US Navy pilot videos of UAPs (unidentified aerial phenomena) that emerged recently.

His main criticism centered around the poor quality of the footage in an age when even relatively inexpensive mobile phones have high-resolution cameras built into them.

"I've said this before," said Tyson. "Just look at - by the way, there are three billion smartphones in the world. And each one can take a high-resolution color video or still picture."

"And the best evidence we're looking at is monochromatic fuzzy tic tacs on a Navy screen?"

"We are crowd sourcing any visitor to Earth. I'm just looking for better data than that."
Cooper responded by pointing out that he had personally interviewed one of the pilots and that they had seemed highly credible and believable.

"I'm not saying people aren't credible," Tyson replied. "If you're human and you see something astonishing, sure. You hear them speak of it and they're pilots and they're used to seeing bogeys and yes, they'll be astonished. That doesn't mean they know what it is."

In the end, he concluded by suggesting that we will know for sure if aliens actually do visit the Earth.

"I think when the aliens come, you don't need fuzzy video to be pointing to," he said.

"We'll all know, ok? Just telling you."

Is making assumptions on some misanthropic, self-loathing pseudo-enlightenment also arrogant and unscientific?

I think all that stuff is still here buried in the UM forums if you dig for it -- that was a real wild time, wasn't it Guyver?  BTW, I haven't published a single "Dr. 58" in about 10 years but I still get emails, LinkedIn notes and Twitter DM every week to this day from people wanting to know more about Dr. 58. A couple of years a go a rock band in Manchester, England, messaged me and said they wrote the lyrics to their new album based on the Dr. 58 universe.  That's insane! I still have hundreds of thousands of words in trans I have never had time to release -- but I should try to do that ... [More]

Iron Ghost, may I observe that your examples are rather oddly anecdotal only.  As I recall this may be a modus operandi? I'm sure I've asked this question before .. and feel free to wait until after that highly meaningful (sigh) conference has come and gone... Which case is the one that is best evidenced, in your opinion?   And if you object to that, I object to people who do a Gish Gallop and then tell us how many 'cases' there are, but get very shy when asked for the best. There are also hundreds of thousands, nay millions of fictional stories and cultural references, and also a cultural d... [More]

I'll keep this simple:This guy is 90lbs of excrement in a 10lb bag.

My mind went to Mike Tyson, too. Couldn't help but read aliens as "alienth".

Not quite as bad as you, then? Why not grow up and be specific - what do you disagree with the most?  And QUOTE, don't just throw more excrement.

That's not a nice thing to say about iron ghost. Do you even know him?

And here’s another thing: If Anderson Cooper and Alisyn Camerota and John Berman, all of CNN, and all who have selected deGrasse Tyson to come on and talk about the UFO issue, why do they always chose him? Despite having a Ph.D. in astrophysics, Tyson has no in-the-field research background in the UFO area. If they want to do a real interview with a real expert, who is also a deeply respected and accomplished mainstream scientist, why not invite Jacques Vallee onto their program? He's available and does TV interviews, although somewhat rarely. Vallee has an MS in astrophysics and a Ph.D. in ... [More]

See above for excellent Handwave & Gish Gallop examples.   Never any specific case.  Never an actual evidenced case.  Never addresses how/why the secret is kept by every country on the globe.

Probably because only old fart UFO enthusiasts and aging internet geeks have heard of him.  Not only that but he has some pretty wild ideas that some take as theory, which could easily backfire on the program. His era is one where people told any old story and people lapped it up. Did you ever read the story about the time Vallee went to visit an alleged witness? Think it was a French farmer, I could be wrong,  working with old memory here. Vallee was rather interested and thought it was a great possibility. Then the farmer described how the "Spaceship" had propellor's. Kinda took the wind o... [More]
