Yo,Isaac Newton My Man, by Neil DeGrasse Tyson.

March 26, 2014

Someone with way too much time on their hands noticed that if you slow Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s tribute to Isaac Newton down – he sounds, like, really high.

    Actually, it looks and sounds more like what I imagine a video of Omnologos would be (except that N DeG T’s commentary is coherent at any playback speed and Omno’s seldom is).

    I am not complaining about Tyson’s presentation of Newton (only enough was presented in Cosmos to make Tyson’s point) but would like to point out that the bizarre relationship between Newton and his peers (Hooke, Haley and Leibniz to only name 3 of many) was much more complicated than most people know. Last month I read “Magnificent Principia” by Colin Pask and was presented with yet another glimpse of this eccentric genius. But all the stuff about Edmund Halley is true and we have him to thank for using his own resources to publish Newton’s work.
