Neil the actor Tyson is in the IMDB as just that, an actor. Want to know what the luminaries look like close up? Everyone needs to look on oYouTube for Real planets and stars’ It will blow your mind I promise! It’s video footage from the legendary Nikon P900 high powered zoom camera of the luminaries😍 Tesla said it was an electric universe and once you see these images you’ll definitely agree. Or just type in Mars P 900 and tell me you think fElony Musk could shoot his load to a luminary!

Good luck with the radiation and (real) vacuum. That is it it's true what they say. What's reality ?
*We should fix problems on earth before go into space * Who is this "we"? humanity is a divirgent mess of people, there will be an expansion into space and there will more than enough human interest to fix earth.

I get what NDT is saying but i dont think its a strong argument: leaving a cave to explore costs nothing but exploring Space is a hugely expensive exercise with little immediate benefit or impact other than 'Awwww, everyone died" or 'Yay, we did it'. Yes, there are long term benefits and yes, we can list them ad nauseam but thats the point: you have to keep pointing out the benefits and citing 'hand held drills' just seems a little pathetic . . . . .'yay, cheap drills cos space . . . . .whoot whoot'. . . . . . . And note that im not talking about satellites here; im talking about EXPLORING space, visiting other planets and pushing out into the Solar system. I still remain dissapointed in us that we havent reached Mars yet and appear to be barely able to get into space in any meaningful way.

07:35 ~ 07:55 There is something sounds wrong with what the Wendover said and what the Digital Globe guy said to me. Wendover : "... able to receive about a gigabyte of information every second from the satelite." Digital Globe guy : "... through that gigabit connection." AFAIK, a gigabit connection can only communicate at 1 gigaBIT / second. Which is 1/8 gigaBYTE / second, as 1 BYTE (B, capital B) = 8 BIT (b, small b). Maybe they are not using a 1Gb (gigabit) connection but 10Gb (gigabit) connection which is approximately 1 GB (gigabyte). CMIIW

Finally a video that explains Global satellite digital imagery. How come imagine resolution is poor in non-developed countries?! 🧐 as an architect working in one of these countries it’s difficult to use digital globe imagery due to extremely low resolution in detail. So I decided to produce own ultra high resolution images by using drone. Brilliant video many thanks

Man is not yet ready for space. Space is not ready for man.  We need to sort out our own problems first, like abolishing wars and suffering. Man cannot survive radiation in space. We are centuries off from that goal.. I don't agree with Tyson.

Climate science? Are you kidding? The NASA satellites showed that the global temperature had not increased for 15 years. Just as soon as that information was released, the Warmers and NASA both began calling the science invalid.

When a specific spaceflight objective (going to the moon, Mars, Near-Earth Object) can provide a return on investment of at least 50%, that is when you'll see explosive growth in the commercial spaceflight industry.

The governments found a way to get to space. Then it got cheaper and commercial players appeared. Now what we need to do is to find ways to DO things cheaper IN space. Then it may get cheaper and can attract commercial players. Sounds easy, right? :-)

the main problem with space exploration, is that chemical rockets have very little energy, to put one ton in the moon, they require 100 tons of fuel, fission nuclear rockets can't do that, because they would contaminate the earth with radioactive material, we are waiting for fussion nuclear rockets, by now only very near space is profitable

I think that NASA should become the "space police." They basically become the FAA of space. Also, some countries should be barred from space. Countries like China, North Korea, and other authoritarian countries.

Crayton Caswell (4 months ago)
Of all the money pits the government can get into, I have supported space exploration the most. This video actually made me second guess myself. Stop talking about private space exploration as if it is "lesser" than government space investment. Government isn't all of us; it's a discrete institution with its own agenda, and by almost any line of reasoning, the incentives do not line up for massive space investment. It isn't like maintaining a large military, which maintains at least some elements of international peace along with the world's reserve currency. It isn't even like federal infrastructure investment. It cannot help but to involve a tiny minority of people economically, and private is as good as government for doing it, all the more because a "vanity project" (Jesus fucking Christ, all space exploration is a vanity project) does not put other people's money on the line without consent. Musk will be on Mars in 30 years. I now seriously want him to beat any government entity to that accomplishment. I still would like to see tax dollars spent in space before it is spent in most places, but I'm under no illusions as to whether "we" are doing it, as opposed to some people in a bureaucracy.

John G (3 months ago)
You do realize the the satellites are hovering over Earth in low Earth orbit (very close to the ground). Furthermore the worldview 4 satellite was constructed and launched in 2016 therefore much higher resolution camera that the shitty images we got from curiosity which was launched in 2003... Not to mention the pictures from Mars have to be sent a much further distance than from Worldview 4.

I live 10 minutes from that glass satalite building. Grew up right down the street from it. Never gave a thought to what it was or who it was owned by. Blew my mind when I saw it in this video.
Dolf Andringa (4 months ago)
I really dislike you calling it a "democratization" of space. It has nothing to do with democracy. Its a commercialization, or "corporatizaton" maybe, but definitely not democratization. We don't get any say in what happens in space. Actually, it's the opposite. If it's only government agencies that go to space, at least there is some semblance of democracy in there. Progress would be slow and I think commercialization is definitely increasing the rate of progress right now. But we do need to realize that we are going to give away control of space to a small number of very rich companies and people.

When it is said "The Next Trillion Dollar Industry", what they mean is how much the US government is going to be in debt for! Keep in mind that these billion dollar corporations and the super rich, like trump, do not pay taxes! It's the same as war, the Trillion dollar industry, which is it, at our expense while they make the money and not pay taxes, as the US goes ever deeper in debt!

Tyson once again proving what a moron he is. His analogy makes no sense. Space is expensive. Maybe 1,000 people get to go, maybe 10,000, maybe 100,000, but what about the other 7 BILLION stuck behind on Earth? We got shit to deal with here, famine, disease, homelessness, and NO ONE is going to space if WW3 breaks out. That's why you fix your home problems first, moron, not piss all your money away going to Mars for the short-lived thrill of it.

12:27 that's exactly wrong, at least in connotation with the Tesla picture. The entire point of Tesla Autopilot is that it relies on what it sees. That's why it works so well, unlike Google autonomous vehicle that needs perfectly mapped area to function.
