Neil deGrasse Tyson Gets the “SNL” Treatment

It was bound to happen: Neil deGrasse Tyson was impersonated on “SNL.” Played by Kenan Thompson, the fake Dr. Tyson appears on an episode of the morning talk show “Fox & Friends” to talk about his new show “Cosmos.” In the skit, he explains to the hosts that global warming is indeed a real threat, a fact confirmed by science. Ironically, on a recent episode of “Cosmos,” Dr. Tyson took on creationism by disproving it with an onslaught of facts. We’re sure that he appreciated the honor of being impersonated on “SNL.”  


To catch the real Dr. Tyson, check out his interview with Big Think on the importance of just being oneself.
