Neil deGrasse Tyson, a protege of Carl Sagan, says “Contact” is one of his favorite science-fiction movies. No wonder. Sagan wrote the book.
So what is Tyson’s other favorite flick?
He calls “Matrix” a masterpiece and “brilliant” — although he has some problems with the science involved.
In any case, Tyson has been appearing in a series of videos at TechInsider that fuse science and pop culture, such as his analysis of how Batman can beat Superman. (An upcoming movie deals with their battle.)
I’ll bet Neil Degrasse Tyson had a ton of friends growing up as he explained to everyone why the science in movies & TV wasn’t factual.
