I was very anxious for this event and disappointed in Neil's tardiness. While the movie information was interesting and fun, I was hoping to learn more from the event last evening. I have enjoyed watching Cosmos on Netflix and look forward to the new series. It would have been nice to have questions and answers from the audience at the end. Two hours was long and the seats were very uncomfortable. Nice socks.

I'll start by saying Dr. Tyson is personable and often
times funny. However, my husband and I attended
the show in the hopes that we would learn
something. What we found was it was superficial
conversation about very general topics. Perhaps we
misunderstood but seriously, this was a rather
juvenile presentation. We found the Q&A's at the end
of the show to be more interesting than most of the
presentation. With that said, the show started 1/2
hour late, which was rude. Dr. Tyson gave an
explanation that he'd been traveling the world – that's
great for you and I'm sure the majority were duly
impressed. However, you had an auditorium full of
people who paid for tickets to your show, who were
not shown the respect they deserved.

Dr. Tyson is one of my heroes! The presentation Wednesday was disappointing. I don't know what I expected but this was not it.
It was a tour down memory lane with photos and videos of rockets and big-fined automobiles and government funding vs private capitalist of space exploration.. Sigh

Tyson blind sided us by out of nowhere starts talking about 9/11. This did not fit into the rest of the show. Using photos and videos of people jumping out of buildings etc was ethically questionable at least. The message from Tyson’s pictures was look at how close I was. His comments about the physics of this tragedy were cold. I remember that day vividly and lost colleagues. To get a 57 year old man sobbing and weeping in his chair and have to leave to throw up in a performance is not ok. Shame on you Tyson. To use one of this country’s days in history to sell your book is terrible. Self promotion at the expense of respect for the dead is Inexcusable. My copy of the book handed to me is in the trash can. Shame on you. Shame shame shame

My wife and I had much higher expectations for an educational evening. The show began with 15 minutes of political commentary on red vs. blue in Texas, COVID, and the acceptance of vaccines across demographic strata. Really Neil? We came to experience your renowned expertise and experience as an astrophysicist, not your political viewpoints! The next 10 minutes was spent promoting his books.
Finally on to the show. Not serious, too many lame jokes (including farts), and more self promotion including his past tweets.
If you're looking for superficial information on the universe supplemented by NASA videos and wrapped in ego and bad attempts at humor, this is your show. If you're seeking a more serious educational experience, take a pass.

MOSTLY MIDDLE SCHOOL CONTENT
When Dr. Tyson asked at the beginning of his presentation if anyone had been to one of his talks, no one raised their hand. Now I know it’s because once is enough. The first 20 minutes were political opinions with nothing to do with astronomy. Then there was the obligatory book promotion. Scattered throughout were the “clever tweets” self promotion. Finally, the astronomy was basic information easily found by reading a news site. I was disappointed as he skimmed the surface of black holes, dark energy, dark matter and quantum entanglement. I think Dr. Tyson underestimated his audience’s interest and intelligence. I taught most of his content including using some of the same videos to 8th grade science students. While he is a good speaker and very entertaining, if you are looking for deeper information I recommend skipping this “show.”

LOW SIGNAL, HIGH NOISE
First 20 mins was about his new book. Very light on interesting physics. Talked about zoolander and how you cant take off underwear just so he could show his cameo in zoolander 2 at the end. Watch his interviews on YouTube because the shows most complex science is about surface tension. Most of the show was him asking the audience if they had seen the movie and polling the children for their ages.
