Kate here is in The Martian with Matt Damon, about a dude who gets left on Mars and has to survive while waiting to be rescued. And so I enjoy this celestial choice for the premiere:
It’s so ridiculously apt: We’ve got Saturn, some constellations, Jupiter, maybe a vortex or two, some kind of space tentacle… all we’re missing is a cartoon Matt Damon face. It’s loud and it’s on-the-nose and it made me laugh, so I’m giving her points. Especially because it’s not every day that a lady gets caught in a Who Wore It Best with science’s own Neil deGrasse Tyson:
You cheeky cosmologist you. Also, I just thought of a show nobody has made yet called Neil Degrassi Tyson, which is a cross between his shenanigans and the now-dead Canadian soap, where I guess troubled teens work at the local planetarium, and discuss the science behind such quandaries as whether gonorrhea exists in space. That’s as far as I’ve gotten, but while I’m percolating: if you haven’t seen the Key & Peele sketch about how Neil deGrasse Tyson gets out of trouble with his wife, please treat yourselves.
