But really, what is truth? What is fact?  A social construct that will disintegrate with the times. *reality dissolves*

Very nicely done! I can tell it's Neil deGrasse Tyson without even having to read the title.

"The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it." Great quote. Here are some other GEMS that he said (the second one may be a bit paraphrased by me, from my memory, so don't be surprised if it's VERY slightly different if you find the video of him saying it):

1. "14 pounds of grey matter" (when referring to the human brain)
2. "A stack of one trillion one dollar bills would go to the moon and back 4 times" (figure it out for yourself, just HOW FAR OFF this is - I'll give you a hint if you don't want to go to the trouble, it wouldn't make it TO the moon once, let alone a round trip, let alone 4 - and he didn't say 3 or 5, he said specifically 4, which means he thought it was between 3.5 and 4.5 - that's a bit like me saying that Michael Jordan is 80 feet tall. Or 5 inches tall.)
3. After this, making such outrageous statements that no schoolchild should make, he had the GAUL to publicly criticize James Cameron for not accurately depicting the STARS IN THE SKY in Titanic as they appeared over the Atlantic ocean on that day at that time at that latitude and longitude. And BRAG about how he complained to Cameron and badgered him into redoing it and releasing another version with it corrected. As if that story was something to brag about. "Look at me, I'm an obsessive compulsive idiot!" And oh, of COURSE. Because such a trite detail of astronomy is so important, but NO OTHER field of science like BASIC anatomy - or BASIC MATH - is important enough to get even within a goddamn ORDER OF MAGNITUDE when making a PUBLIC STATEMENT about them in front of a camera that will be recorded for all posterity, in a speech I COULD have rehearsed, involving information I could have researched, and calculations I could have taken the time to do competently.

Frigging hypocrite.

Not sure he said stack, because stacked, you'd need a shit ton.
Lined up, sounds good. The moon isn't that far away.
Measure the length of a dollar bill, multiply by a trillion, and what's the result? :iconimthinkingplz:

Hey, nicely done, I think you got his look down well.
I've been watching "Cosmos" lately. He's not Carl Sagan, but he's alright :P also, good choice of quote.

Hey, don't suppose you'll be doing Professor Brian Cox (he likes to do the science)?
