“I think we as a society, as a democracy, what we should do is come to some understanding of what the prevailing social mores are and know science shouldn’t cross those barriers. And by the way, scientists are often ones trying to prevent that, Einstein among them, for example. He didn’t want to make the bomb after he first told Roosevelt he should make the bomb, he changed his mind, because his conscience, his moral conscience descended upon him. Scientists are not without moral code here. So, as a culture and a society we decide what should be the prevailing cultural mores and I think we should be beholding to those.”—Neil deGrasse Tyson
“Some 5 or 6 or 7 billion years from now, the Sun will become a red giant star and will engulf the orbits of Mercury and Venus and probably the Earth. The Earth then would be inside the Sun, and some of the problems that face us on this particular day will appear, by comparison, modest.”—Carl Sagan
