Neil deGrasse Tyson Is Worried That Humans Are Too Stupid For Aliens

Ah! This is a must see: Dr deGrasse Tyson putting our modern technology in perspective - Just for giggles, in his scale, Voyager 1 would be about 280 miles away. Assuming Dr. Tyson sits in his office at the Hayden Planetarium, that is past Boston, MA. I also love the part where he explains why Dr. Stephen Hawking is a bit concerned by aliens landing on earth.







There is also the possibility that the first aliens to visit us will be either microbes or viruses, something small and that will sustain the cold and vacuum of space for a long time without dying.
