Tyson blind sided us by out of nowhere starts talking about 9/11. This did not fit into the rest of the show. Using photos and videos of people jumping out of buildings etc was ethically questionable at least. The message from Tyson’s pictures was look at how close I was. His comments about the physics of this tragedy were cold. I remember that day vividly and lost colleagues. To get a 57 year old man sobbing and weeping in his chair and have to leave to throw up in a performance is not ok. Shame on you Tyson. To use one of this country’s days in history to sell your book is terrible. Self promotion at the expense of respect for the dead is Inexcusable. My copy of the book handed to me is in the trash can. Shame on you. Shame shame shame

My wife and I had much higher expectations for an educational evening. The show began with 15 minutes of political commentary on red vs. blue in Texas, COVID, and the acceptance of vaccines across demographic strata. Really Neil? We came to experience your renowned expertise and experience as an astrophysicist, not your political viewpoints! The next 10 minutes was spent promoting his books. Finally on to the show. Not serious, too many lame jokes (including farts), and more self promotion including his past tweets. If you're looking for superficial information on the universe supplemented by NASA videos and wrapped in ego and bad attempts at humor, this is your show. If you're seeking a more serious educational experience, take a pass.
