The Thrive Global Podcast: Episode 6, Neil deGrasse Tyson (Part 1)

“I don’t want to be that guy, who is saying ‘The youngins today, and their habits, and they’ll be the death of civilization.’”

As someone who studies the stars, Neil deGrasse Tyson spends a lot of time looking up. But in today’s screen obsessed world, most people spend the majority of their time looking down. He has voiced his concern about seeing the world through a screen rather than your own eyes before (including in his Thrive Questionnaire), but told Huffington, “I don’t want to be that guy, who is saying ‘The youngins today, and their habits, and they’ll be the death of civilization.’” deGrasse added “the future will be a different world but I don’t necessarily fear it.”
