    NdGT may have wanted to keep the conversation short and light. However there is the reality. The reality is that there is NO 80 light-year “bubble” of radiowaves caused by mankind. The Sun has a “bubble” of radiowaves around it, because its entire body emits radiowaves. The Earth only emits in the equatorial plane of our solar system, and does so sporadically because 12 hours of the day, our radiowaves would go towards the Sun. Also a calculation was done that suggested after a 2 light-year distance, the signal from the most powerful radio transmitter on Earth would be lost in the radio background noise from the Sun. So not even our nearest neighbors would know we exist. It is a nice fantasy to think that episodes of “I Love Lucy” could be received by aliens 70 light-years away with incredible antenna technology, but reality says otherwise.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson has a very Ameri-centric way of explaining things. Basically, it’s ramped up infotainment. His dialog in this video seems very smug, like he’s prepped a clever answer for dipshits to laugh and clap their hands to and immediately forget.

    The human mind: comprehending that there are certainly limits to it’s comprehension, yet never being able to determine when those limits have been reached.
