NeilDeGrasse Tyson Explains the Universe and Eats Hot Wings

Mr. Tyson, what's hotter -- the sun... or those wings!?!?

  • Neil DeGrasse Tyson is an incredibly thoughtful to listen to — after all, the host of the Cosmos reboot has a lot of thoughts about the nature of the universe, and just how our systems can fall shorts of continuing the Earth. Unfortunately, what does it take for a nation to listen to him? Does it take a thoughtful idea, presented in a smart, direct way respectful of his audience? Or does it take a guy eating a heckload of hot wings on the YouTube channel First We Feast!?

    Put on that Hot Wing bib Mr. Tyson, it’s time to eat some hot wings! Oh heck yeah! Neil DeGrasse Tyson discusses how the underfunding of our space program will leave our children vulnerable to a comet heading hit the planet Earth, how Bill Nye was the one who took the famous Tyson/Nye/Obama selfie, and so far he’s doing well with those wings — but then, when he’s asked to analyze rap lyrics that use science facts in them, he reaches for the water.

    He actually lasts so long. Does he — as he hints — use a lozenge to coat his throat from the spices? This is amazing. What do you think of the video? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
