    Seeing Stephen use quotation marks around Space Command really shows how clueless he is on the subject...

  • EarnPoohrich

    Just wanna restate [Joe toner] the intro song he mentioned way down here. The song's name is "I like it" by Debarge.

    Being on the moon would be the most amazing thing ever.

    I wanted to meet carl sagan, however, I am happy that at least I might be able to meet Neil someday

    To counter-act global warming, why don't we just deploy solar panels over strategic areas to both block some of the sunshine hitting the globe, and soak up energy to use to clean up near space? Antarctica, Greenland, the Sahara desert, parts of the oceans, etc. . Partial eclipses of the Sun drop the temperature by several degrees. A semi-permanent, movable, partial eclipse could power both a magnetic "jellyfish" to capture dangerous cosmic debris, as well as a space elevator. This would make much more sense to me than trying to put a permanent settlement on Mars.

  • PattiMichelle Sheaffer

    No, he's no genius. As far as I know he's never accomplished any significant science. He's just a funded loudmouth, like Kaku and Nye. The latest IPCC Special Report SP15 [2018] shows we're likely to go extinct far before these loudmouths' ideas can be implemented. But if he said these truths, he'd be out of a job. The whole international scientific community ignores him. Oh, and also Americans. If you want the actual scientific knowledge, look elsewhere.

  • Le_ Alien

    dude, Neil just explain stuff why is the host interrupting cutting him?

  • MaxTheBeast

    One must never wish war, but one must always be ready for it. That's why a space force is a wise idea.

  • Mathew Stovell

    Super shill Neil deGrasse Tyson - here to give vocal back up to the U.S.As' silly "Space force" business. The leel of stupidity and ignorrance to support all this from the man on the street - just becuase it's promoted well on television by celebrities. O.M.G what a daft world we live in. NASA: Cost to Tax payer: 50 million dollars a day.

  • Muaz Azman

    If Donald Trump believe in science, Neil degrass Tyson should be Secretary of Space Force

  • KozMc Odin

    no one clapped for asteroid defense but clapped for cleaning space debris.

  • Mekel Reen

    “Even a broken clock is right twice a day.”

  • Misty Meanor

    What an idiot...so debris is out there floating around at 18,000 miles per hour how come then with all the satellites out there they have not been destroyed or damaged by all this space junk...or knocked out of its orbital trajectory...but what do I know after all pluto isn’t a planet because Neil the Ass Tyson says so.

    Talk show idiot: ORANGE MAN BAD Rational man: No its actually a good idea Talk show idiot: REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  • Solberg

    Neil DeGrasse Tyson is proof that black people can be intelligent

  • Jay

    Damn. Slow down Stephen as you are pushing him. Good one !

  • no1reallycaresabout2

    Neil DeGrasse Tyson better either be offered some position in the Space Force or at least given an award for his advocacy for it!

  • Suhaib Sufi

    NASA originally possible still Military upper level China space program - also military

  • Bugler55

    It's so much fun to watch NdgT sperg out excitedly next to Colbert who's dry as an insurance claims rep - reminds me that people are still fun and quirky and energetic, not every media personality is an npc.

  • Aditya Prasetiyo

    its not bad idea, but the way trump imagine "space Force" is different

  • CMG

    Colberts salary comes from oversea....which explains why he is paid to trash America.

  • Joseph Yenkosky

    I see Trump's faithful idiots flocked to this pretty damn quickly.

  • DankL0rd Sk0rN

    The idea of a space force is not absurd if it is equipped to deal with asteroids the could pose a threat to cites, continents, or the entire earth, some sort of orbital defense is necessary, much better chance of an asteroid threat than say something like an alien one. The Tunguska impact was nothing compared to the asteroid that hit, wiped out the dinosaurs, and caused and ice age. It would be nice to be able to defend against something like that from happening again. So it's not an absurd concept in that sense, not to mention they could clean up space debris, which are technically a threat to satellites, then the materials can be re purposed or disposed of properly, gotta agree with Neil on this one.

  • IamRangers

    Obviously paid worker for NASA/government worker.Always asking for more money. Where do they get this money? From you

  • Tom Funk

    I've mostly considered Tyson as fairly rudimentary... but I don't even think he lives up to that measure here.

  • Alexander McLucas

    And he is supposed to be smart well not campared to Einstein or steven hawking hawking would probably use logic and his interlect to counteract this idea. of course we dont need space force its a stupid idea coming from a stupid president who likes nothing mlre than to have money in his pocket and poking the metaphorical bear.

  • Nick Zagorov

    I think Neil is just freakin Awsome! I watched alot of his documentarys.

  • Smith

    I have a feeling cia operative Colbert knows more than Neil

  • Lois Wright

    A great guy. Smart and a sense of humor. What a man!

  • Joel Duncan

    China and Russia has missiles which can maneuver at hyper sonic speed. You better get a space force.

  • Darkcosmic7

    What was the song that they were playing at the start?

  • NeoJD

    This NASA guy is so damn cool

  • Kyotra

    The peaceful use of space will end when technology has advanced enough for humanity to live out there in large numbers.

  • Cmaz29

    I can see his brain thinking faster than his mouth can speak

  • Nick Librizzi

    America, my country has now become the new Nazism in space and in other prosperities!!!! That is sad!!!!!!!!

  • Max Mate

    When the Air Force came into service they just had a wooden plane with a gun attached to it and now look at the Air Force. One of the most important branches in the military today and possibly the most technologically advanced branch of the military.

  • 1571JohannesKepler

    It's kind of weird how the idea of asteroids defense got no response from the audience, but "cleaning space debris" got applauses... If you think defending ourselves against asteroids is not "ecological", then obviously you don't know what effects a big rock striking earth can have on life. For more information, ask any dinosaure in your neighborhood. Oh that's right, they didn't have a space program...

  • Jonathan J. West

    Not a crazy idea, an amazing idea, a must, GO SPACE FORCE! UNITED STATES SPACE FORCE! https://www.amazon.com/dp/1483484106/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1526130983&sr=1-1&keywords=United+states+Space+Force+1980

  • Odell James

    I thought talk show hosts were smart..... never mind

  • KaiserXIII

    Jesus, every time this man opens his mouth, I'm just mesmerized. I honestly watched this video about three times in order to fully absorb all of the information this man shared. The thing is, though, that even though he said "war in space" is not strategically sound, the idiot currently leading the most powerful (is that even a fact anymore? Nukes, still, so maybe) country in the world is neither strategic nor mentally sound, and if he is, it is entirely debatable.

  • Jack Simmons

    Colbert trying to join the league of beards with John Stewart and Letterman?

  • 5Oblivion

    I wish Carl Sagan was alive so he and Neil could have their own radio show

  • Pepsolman

    If only we could convert Trump into a space janitor...

  • Colorless Green

    You could tell the audience was disappointed because it wasn't yet another thoughtless "Let's shit on trump" fest.

  • Brett Sanders

    There so much hidden from us, I assure your people you are divine.

  • RDR JohnMarston

    I don’t doubt we need to use outter space for the military but why a space force???

  • Rome Dela Rosa

    Neil has this innate ability to explain things even a kid could understand. He can condense and simplify something so complex into something even my niece would understand lol

  • NoobAssassin

    I don't get why everyone is here is hating on Stephen in this instance. Well yeah He does Not Like Trump and thinks that He is crazy. You can clearly see that, even if you do not know him, but he does nothing more than directly asking Neil what He and many others seem to miss here, so we can have a rational discussion about this. And also, If the Air force is already doing all of this. Why create a space force in the first place? I mean some people would get work and need to get payed with the bureaucracy going into this? I guess?

  • domantfly

    Ive personally saw space junk fall. Old Japaneese satelite few years ago. Scary and mindblowing sight.

  • Andrea R.

    Problem is with America on space, would it defend all world? Only themselves? How could it work when a meteorite in Europe can wipe the us east coast? We need international space force, not an American one, otherwise ESA, Russia, chi è, Japan, everyone would want one, and good luck coordinating that

  • Massangler1856

    "If you're coming at me and I think you're doing something bad." So it's a space Stand Your Ground law...

  • DullBoom

    What happened to trump not going to win the election???

  • avg joe gaming

    Let's clean up our atmosphere before we worry about space debris

  • Tim Skarin

    Not a fan of that “beard” you’ve got goin there

  • AnyName AnyName

    NASA actaully was the space agency that put the military satelittes into orbit. But good lie Neil.

  • David Packer

    They kicked Alex Jones off the internet because he pulls 5 times the audience that Colbert gets.

  • kcco69er

    What if one country relies heavily on technology and the other knows that destroying all the satellites in space, including it's own, would give it an advantage due to its lesser reliance on that technology. Go space force!

  • Preston  Sturgis

    Finally, someone calls Colbert out! Even better that its Neil Tyson

  • Dominik Biljan

    Arent Power rangers space force a THING??? xD Hahah anyways have a damn nice daaaay!!

  • Teddyballgame

    The USAF Space Command has 38,000 people in it and an annual budget of 19 billion dollars. Congress still has to approve a new branch of the Armed Forces.

  • Adrian B

    I watched this video when it was first uploaded 2 weeks ago & by chance found myself here again today. Unlike 2 weeks ago, I didn't read any of the comments, but today I did & I feel that I should leave a comment. The comments being left by the many 'keyboard warriors' are pathetic. Clearly, there are a number of Trump supporters or, at least, sympathisers who went out of their way to write something in the comments section of a video from a show that is clearly critical of the president. You guys need to get a life. The comments are also saying things like 'Stephen is so dumb' or 'all Stephen Colbert wants to do is bash Trump'. Firstly, do you people really think that this interview hasn't been rehearsed? It's quite clear that the team at the Late Show brought Neil deGrasse Tyson on to present his views on the advantages of a Space Force. Secondly, I personally find it very difficult not to view Trump WITHOUT contempt. He is a known racist (see 's-hole country' remarks), misogynist (dismissive of #MeToo movement, Access Hollywood incident, countless comments on women) and warmonger, who was responsible for taking children away from their families. How can you support anyone like that? Does Stephen Colbert bash Trump too much? NO! Trump holds the most powerful office in the world and is damaging the US and its people with global repercussions.
