What air? There is none on Venus.

"Air" doesn't necessarily imply our breathable atmosphere, it's just whatever makes up a Planet's atmosphere closest to it's surface.

Special spacesuit, designed to allow you to take in the hot pizza and munch it, as well as keeping you cold. We need to do this, for science and pizza

No, Venus is an exeption, it consists of a major windshield and a few lesser windshields. You will need to keep the pizza in the major windshield (here the temperature is about 300°C while in the lesser shields it's about 35°C. You can technically do this. I won't try it out though.

Sorry, couldn't reply to the post down at the bottom apparently too many purple lines.

Looking back I might have actually been the person that linked you that before.

Well yeah if that was your point I can see where you're coming from but so far I have yet to notice Neil do anything duplicitous that would imply corruption, what's more science is a much more difficult area to corrupt then say law or politics because science deals with the empirical and proveable instead of rampant lies and deceit to propagate a duplicitous agenda.
User avatar #15 to #14 - herecomesjohnny (01/27/2013) [-]
i'm not talking about fiscal corruption or anything, but more like corruption in his vocation of science, hell in the scientific spirit of ALL television scientists: 'hey dudes, we know making fun facts about how a pizza would heat on venus is fun for the audience, but how about once in a while you go study on fixing the ozone layer or participate in elucidating dark matter for once? the bros who counter-theorized the higgs-boson particle didn't really spend their evenings with Leno"
#16 to #15 - teranin ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]
No they didn't, instead it was done by people like Neil, the rare scientist who also has charisma, and has decided to use his charisma and knowledge of science as a force for good impressing the importance of science onto non-scientists in the hopes of securing a greater interest and level of funding for all fields of scientific inquiry. He's providing a service most scientists simply could not provide, just as he is not useful in say, the field of microbiology.

all i'm saying is people are putting him up on a crazy pedestal way too much and overreacting over his figure of science's embodiment. The guy's not even a scientist, he's.... a presentator, a lecturer.   
How about putting the spotlight on the researchers for once? I don't know, fields medalists or nobel laureats (although my argument can't really stand when talking about nobel laureats and money)   
   
i'm not demeaning his job as a teacher with his shows or anything, i'm just saying he's way overhyped by internet memes and inspirational quotes posted on facebook.

Ok so basically what you're saying is that because he has a fanbase and the people who are currently doing the heavy lifting on research and experimentation don't, it's a problem for you? Couple of issues with that.

1 - Neil has a fanbase because he went out there and earned them by being entertaining, witty, and saying true and intelligent things.

2- While it is true that Neil has not engaged in much actual science in the past 9 years or so, I assure you that he is very much a scientist, with a number of peer reviewed papers, as well as a PhD in astrophysics and a masters degree in astronomy.

3- It's not as though he is drawing attention away from people doing hard science, he's actually improving what little attention they get as he generates more and more people's interest in various scientific fields. Looking at it from a subjective standpoint there are way more pros to his popularity than cons.

Still, from another viewpoint, I can see where you're coming from, even if I don't really agree with the rationale.

fine, let's leave it like that, but i can't be the only one finding it weird that for example NASA's budget keeps dwindling and shutting down because people are against it, and on the other hand they revere a dude making slideshows on their own work

...wut?  Neil has been fighting tooth and nail about the de-funding of NASA.  He's been one of NASA's strongest advocates for a long, long time.  The problem with your thinking here is that you assume Neil's fanbase somehow has enough influence to have an effect on federal policy, which is just silly.  What's more, you'll find Neil to be a very strong advocate against the fact that our congress lack's any sort of scientific knowledge whatsoever, he's made his opinions on that quite clear.   
   
Why would you dislike a man who hates the thing you hate, and talks about that publicly to try to garner support for the very position you are taking on the issue?

User avatar #27 to #25 - herecomesjohnny (01/27/2013) [-]
it's good to hear about tyson advocating for NASA, but can't i just find it weird the demantling of public research worsens while television scientists and well, yeah, the studios behind them keep thriving on? i just imagine a NASA scientist being laid off or having to share a desk while de grasse talks about their stuff on a show to then drive home in a jaguar.

but hey he's an American so i guess i have no point. It's just the venality of science becoming an entertainment market with little return to science that irks me.
#113 to #27 - salts (01/28/2013) [-]
he has a point you know..
#28 to #27 - teranin ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]
You have a really unusual way of looking at that, most scientists don't enjoy science because they want to be famous, they enjoy science because they want to learn, to explore, and to expand the overall knowledge of mankind. Neil is simply providing them with a better method for espousing that knowledge to the general public, the majority of whom would never know half the **** they do about space without him. He plays the role science needs, an advocate to the general populace for science's worth to humanity, a concept that much of America is in contention with.

What's more, Neil regularly has guests from NASA on his Startalk podcast, and since he worked for NASA before, it turns out he seems to be pretty well liked not just there but across most of the scientific community.

This is like having a white knight mentality, creating a false empathy for a situation that could only occur if the sequence of emotional queues for the subject were the same as your own, which definitely does not always work.

Still, once again, I do at least see where you are coming from, I just don't really agree with your rationale.
User avatar #30 to #28 - herecomesjohnny (01/27/2013) [-]
well i'm not exactly creating false empathy for thousands of people who lost their jobs and protested am i? I'm just saying these people sure could have used some L.A money, the distribution of wealth (and renown too, it's inherent to it) being a bit eclectic.

You need to login to view this link Is the only private charity organization ever to be solely for getting money to NASA, and it was created in 2012 by John Zeller thanks to inspiration that came from Neil Tyson. I can see where you are coming from but it may prove more fruitful for you to instead of hating on Neil Tyson direct your energies toward liking and advocating for John Zeller's organization. I've always found that unlike electromagnetic fields, positive statements can garner more positive responses from humans than negative ones. What's more, it's good that you have strong feelings in support of the NASA scientists who got screwed by that downsizing, as far too many americans just didn't care. Apathy will always be an even greater enemy than ignorance to scientific progress.
User avatar #40 to #38 - herecomesjohnny (01/27/2013) [-]
i think you're thinking too far, one little caustic comment about de grasse putting on a show isn't exactly hating.
#44 to #40 - teranin ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]
Yeah hating was probably not the best choice of words there but my point about positive statements garnering a better reaction than negative ones is still valid.
