Neil deGrasse Tyson's Quotes

  • The more your ideas are untestable, either in principle or in practice, the less useful they are to the advance of science.
  • Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life. So that we are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically and to the rest of the universe atomically. That's kinda cool! That makes me smile and I actually feel quite large at the end of that. It's not that we are better than the universe, we are part of the universe. We are in the universe and the universe is in us.
  • The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it.
  • Where ignorance lurks, so too do the frontiers of discovery and imagination.
  • Science is something to be proud of, it allows us to understand the world in spite of ourselves.
