    America's favorite astrophysicist returns to The Late Show with a surprising argument for why Trump's call for a Space Force may be a good thing.

To all of you posters out there: Please watch this segment carefully. Steven does not talk over Neil, nor is he bashing Trump in every other sentence. Trump is , as most people know, a stupid liar, and nothing a trump supporter says will ever change the fact that he is a stupid liar. He has never shown the least bit of interest in space, or science or history, for that matter, so why is he proposing this now? Is Trump serious or is he just looking to distract us from his other actions? As Neil said, we already have a space command, its under the air force for military matters, and NASA is for scientific research and exploration. The questions are; do we need a separate branch of the military? Will it duplicate what is already being done, or will it be totally separate? How much will it cost? Will it violate treaties we have signed that prohibit the militarizing of space? Remember President Regan's "star wars" defense initiative? By a treaty with Russia we agreed not to deploy weapons in space, will this "Space Force" violate that treaty?

Honestly, highly doubt trump gives two shits about how good a "space force" would be to establish (or like Neil said, put under a new umbrella), but that being said, I at least could admit even prior to NDT's interview here that it didn't sound like a "cooky" or "silly" idea to me....as some of the comedy liberal outlets I watch are portraying it to be. I mean that doesn't make me a trump fan by any means, and I still will be delighted if he loses in 2020,.(because lets face it, with him the cons far outweigh the pros) but it just takes a mature person to be able to sift through bias to see the big picture is all. Just because he's in charge when it's going to be implemented (lets not go as far as to say it was his personal idea, because that's certainly doubtful), doesn't make it a horrible or stupid idea. If you see it on the aspect that we're steadily continuing to fuck up this planet as we know it and sooner or later space will be our future, better sooner than later that we start to establish a more specific presence there. Also the asteroid thing is something to be considered as well unless we want to go the way of the dinosaur one day.

Maybe instead of seeing Space Force as adding muscle to space activity see it as peacifying the military? Star Trek is kinda militaristic, but it's not about war it's about exploration but it uses the discipline, training, and command structure of the military to it's advantage. Personally I think we need another branch of the military to "fight" natural disasters. Not through warfare, but by using good techniques to have more efficient evacuations, help people board up their homes and businesses, shelter and evacuate the homeless and animals. I read that millions of farm animals perished during the hurricane Florence, surely there is something that could have been done about that? It seems likely that natural disasters are only going to get worse, why not have a branch of the military specifically structured around dealing with these events? It could even serve as a great way for people who would like to continue in the military, but for whatever reason would not like to or are unable to serve as they are serving and thus would normally exit the military, to perhaps continue with a military style lifestyle, which I know some people really find to be something they like, while still being able to be stationed in the states with more stability and not have to worry about being in a combat situation. (The last bit is because I know there is a lot of talk about people having trouble transitioning to civilian life, especially when that choice is not made willingly but because of injury or other circumstances.) Anyway, my point is that military doesn't need to be all about war, it can be celebrated for it's virtues too. As the planet (hopefully, everyone keep their fingers crossed) becomes more peaceful, we don't need to abandon the warrior, but give the warrior new battles to fight. I think Worf is an excellent example of that. Star Trek is an amazing example to me of the future of how we can use the military to fight more abstract battles than traditional warfare. Discipline and routine can make certain things a lot safer for the people involved.

Not a big fan of Neil. I just feel he is the spokesman of the required supported answer. He makes me feel like he doesn't want people to think and ask questions. Not the man to fill the shoes of the late Carl Sagan. Carl never told you how anything was. He just challenged you to look for the answers.

haha by now with the fact trump never said anything reasonable in his life (or things that sound reasonable until asked for details and the insanity insues) by now it is a statement akin to well god exists because you cannot prove he doesn't.. niel always tries to keep as many people listening to him so i get his angle with this. but the only people he gets listening for a moment are dumpsters.. two words further and you lost those dumb fucks again anyway. i doubt he doesn't see the futility in teaching calculus to cows why think its any better with doing something more complex with people who's brains barely function because of apathy? trump is not going to have a solution to space debris.. he wants soldiers in space to fight the Chinese presence.. so him using this as an example in trump being reasonable at times is a terrible example lol.

Why are there so many trumptards in the comments. Neil isn’t advocating for trump as a political leader. He’s just talking about the probability of militarizing space. Neil degrasse Tyson doesn’t like or vouch for trump sorry redneck republicans you don’t get to have this guy on your side. He’s made it very clear he’s not.

What is going on with the comments, talking about "ignorant" Colbert being "shut down" by Tyson? Obviously Colbert wants Tyson to explain his points to the (possably uneducated) viewer and gets him to do so by asking him the respective questions. You wouldn't actually believe he was beeing serious when asking if space could be vacuumed, ...?

You are like an innocent child NDT... The military will not clean space or defend against asteroids. They want to build orbital bombardment weapon platforms. That's what Trump wants anyway, unaware that there are International treaties that forbid it. It's not nuclear and no other nation has the means to do it, so they will classify them separately than other WMDs, and start dropping tungsten rods on countries that won't give them their oil a few megatons at a time. Now you might expect that splitting space command from the air force will lower the air force budget and reallocate part of it to the new space force... Yeah, right...

Neil DeGrasse Tyson is pro anything that would throw billions at the ridiculous expenses of space exploration. So basically he’s just trying to protect his job at the expense of the planet. Rather than wasting all that money and resources on looking outside the planet, why not just use it to settle our home planet instead? Synthetic Non-Vegitrian food, Global Warming, A-Forestation, Pollution control, alternate fuels, Law Enforcement etc, all these things can be helped move in leaps and bounds if the same amount of money and intellectual resources are used on them.

Common sense ... common sense is that even in our world military excursions (Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Rohngya, Israel/Palestine) always lead to blow back (in the form of terrorism, ISIS, etc.). Until World War ... it's the same inescapable concept. But since the result is not immediate nobody cares to give it a second thought unfortunately. May God guide us towards unity and peace.
