Tyson’s silence thus far does not put me at ease; to the contrary, I believe he is amassing the elements of perhaps his most annoying film take ever. Here are a few potential comments I can foresee:
“Why would the Family task Roman, arguably its least competent member, with command of an experimental rocket? Moreover, if we assume his height to be equal to Tyrese Gibson’s, i.e., 5'11”, he is impractically tall for a mission in such a small spacecraft.“
"Not only would Tej and Roman never survive deliberately crashing into a satellite while 50 miles above the surface of our planet, but their bodies would be liquified in those rubber scuba suits before the Pontiac disintegrated upon reentry into the atmosphere.”
“When, in the theater, I stood up and loudly explained that the loose candy wrappers would damage the vehicle’s instrument panels, leading to catastrophic system failure, I was booed and pelted with popcorn, along with half-finished sodas. Never before has society been so anti-science.”
Which will it be? More importantly, can Neil hope to surpass this genius post from last year?
