@scottkerr: My favorite quote by @neiltyson is still "The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it." #SXSW #degrasse
@LouT4: To be scientifically literate is to know when someone is full of shit. #sxsw
@citygalatl: RT @omarg: The new “Cosmos” is going to air in 170 countries and 45 languages. Premieres tomorrow night on FOX. #degrasse #360sxsw #sxsw
@cjovalle: To feel knowledge alters your perspective on the world... helps you take ownership of that knowledge. #sxsw #degrasse
@LabelCollective: The "job" of COSMOS: to learn, and say, "now I know and understand my place in the universe." #SXSW2014
@mgherron: "My personal definition of science literacy is how much do you still wonder about the world around you?" #sxsw #askneil
@NatCam3: "When you explore, all those answers come for free" #deGrasse #SXSW
@RonHoughtaling: Did you have kids to not have a messy house? Encourage exploration. #deGrasse #SXSW
@summerjoy26: "I think a scientist is just a kid who never grew up" @neiltyson #SXSW #degrasse
@melodyceleste: Let your kids play with the pots. Let them explore #deGrasse #SXSW14 #sxtxstate @neiltyson
@ericpait: If you think the price of college is expensive, try to cost of ignorance. #deGrasse #SXSW
@lisiaf: RT @kevindpeckham: Curiosity... is the essence of scientific literacy. #sxsw
@benmreid: RT @Chuparkoff: "You kid will bang on pots and pans. This is an experiment in acoustics! Let her bang." says @neiltyson at #cosmos #deGrass
@atxgatorgirl: #degrasse Lessons need to be experienced firsthand. #sxsw #gsdm
@ams9: If you think the price of college is expensive, think of the cost of ignorance #degrasse #sxsw

@parnell409: RT @vohit4rohit: let a kid break an egg and discover what’s inside, it’s only a $0.20 lesson #deGrasse #sxsw #tbwasxsw
@cjovalle: Science class- learning facts. If you don't learn what it is, why it works, you're susceptible to pseudoscientific thinking. #sxsw #degrasse
@LouT4: I'm not going to debate you on what you think is true, I'm going to have a conversion about what science is. #sxsw
@elozanobuhl: RT @ericpait: “I just tweet stuff. There is no planning. It’s just stuff I was thinking anyway.” - Neil #deGrasse Tyson #SXSW
@cjovalle: You can't just choose what is true and what isn't. That's not the way the world works, or how science works. #sxsw #degrasse
@catmatson: Instead of 'believe', what if we said 'question' - deGrasse on the Macy's Thanksgiving Pde slogan #SXSW #degrasse
@junascimento: "We have the power of mind to probe whats there in the world" - #degrasse
@LKoestlerCRE: Believing blindly has consequences. @neiltyson dropping hard truths #degrasse #SXSW14 #QUESTION
@thrimpth: RT @KrazyKaplan14: An exoplanet is a planet that orbits a star outside the solar system #deGrasse #SXSW14
@carmenhill: These people know what an exoplanet is. This is geek central right here. #sxsw #degrasse
@metaprinter: "There is no physics in The Number of Things" get over it Pluto lovers! @neiltyson #SXSW #degrasse
@LouT4: DIS'd = dead in space. How nerds diss. #deGrasse #SXSW
@cjovalle: Because of all of the exoplanet data, we can ask new questions- can start looking at systems, can start asking about life. #sxsw #degrasse
@Nicosan1: RT @elozanobuhl: Lack of scientific knowledge is sign of failure of educational system to even teach what science is - it’s not just facts.…

@vohit4rohit: "Carbon is the slut of the periodic table" - Jon Stewart via #deGrasse #sxsw #tbwasxsw
@LoweandPartners: Does life require liquid water? Maybe it just requires liquid? Maybe methane? #deGrasse #sxswi #geekout
@cjovalle: Rivers of methane on Titan. We imagine life on Titan using methane. If true, idea of Goldilocks Zone needs to be revisited. #sxsw #degrasse
@WolffLogsdon: The finger wags are epic - its like watching the swirling of the Milky Way in a planetarium #degrasse #SXSWi
@LabelCollective: RT @ericpait: .@neiltyson is pointing out flaws in an inflatable globe. They haven’t accounted for melting ice caps. #deGrasse #SXSW
@ericpait: You’ve been lied to by textbooks that have to squeeze the moon and the earth onto the same page. #tragic #deGrasse #SXSW
@parnell409: RT @cjovalle: 20 inch earth, 5 inch mars. Moon is about 20 feet away, Mars is about at Town Lake from the Austin Convention Center. #sxsw #…
@melodyceleste: Most of the universe is empty #deGrasse #SXSW14 #sxtxstate @neiltyson wow God is amazing! http://t.co/u2FVKg7MKY
@ericpait: With a 20” Earth…that dude who jumped out of a perfectly good balloon would be about 2mm off the surface. #deGrasse #SXSW

@adplannergirl: RT @sabialea: The is so much to be actually impressed with in the universe, I don't want you to be confused by that which is not. #degrasse
@ericpait: We need to explore space because you know the dinosaurs would have if they could have. #deGrasse #SXSW
@adplannergirl: RT @cjovalle: I don't want to be the laughingstock among the aliens because we were intelligent enough to have a space program.. #sxsw #deg
@prosperitygal: RT @TheEngagingEd: If the Dinos had a space program, they would have deflected that asteroid. #degrasse #sxsw I love this man.
@tmonhollon: "The day you stop thinking about tomorrow, you stop innovating" @neiltyson #SXSW #degrasse
@parnell409: Human skeletons will end up in museums of Earth’s next great species mocking us for not having the tech. to deflect astroid #degrasse
@elozanobuhl: Let’s be tackling huge challenges, not just the next app. Give attention to space exploration! #deGrasse #sxsw
@cjovalle: Space exploration. Expensive, dangerous, can't quantify risk. Can't create capital evaluation in going to space first. #sxsw #degrasse
@mbloomstein: RT @stribs: Tyson: Don't just be thinking of the next app: Health, security, transportation, safety, energy need to be attended to also #sx
@dluque: RT @cjovalle: Private industry cannot lead in those big problems, like space exploration... #sxsw #degrasse
@madgirlnyc: RT @tmonhollon: Frontier explorers weren't driven by private enterprise but by national interests, governments says @neiltyson #SXSW #degra
@cjovalle: Rare earth elements. Space did a lot of filtering for you. Some steroids core of planets that broke apart... #sxsw #degrasse
@psychomotikon: Capitalist demand for ROI prevents investment in space discovery

@benmreid: RT @cjovalle: The first trillionaire in the world is going to be the person who first mines asteroids. #sxsw #degrasse
@cjovalle: Q&A: most frustratingly misunderstood science. Lots. Something heavy falls faster than light thing? Can DO that experiment. #sxsw #degrasse
@cjovalle: What must up must come down. No, that's because you're not throwing it hard enough! #sxsw #degrasse
@TheEngagingEd: #degrasse frustration? When people don't think things through. And then he dropped his boot and the moon. #sxsw #badass
@dluque: RT @LSGrodeska: Love that @neiltyson just called out innovation for not addressing huge issues like energy, transportation, health. #sxgood
@CaitlinMClark: "I wonder if we are smart enough to actually figure out the universe." - @neiltyson
@benmreid: "We define ourselves as intelligent because, well, we came up as the test for that" #degrasse #sxsw

@TheEngagingEd: #Degrasse takeaway for me? STAY CURIOUS. Break things. Be inspired by things. Empower yourself. #sxsw
@cjovalle: I see the pendulum swinging back... it was fashionable to deny science in a big, audacious way. The tone has shifted,... #sxsw #degrasse
@cjovalle: Don't have to be a scientist to embrace the methods and tools of that enterprise... Science is becoming mainstream. #sxsw #degrasse
