April 8, 2010 - Neil DeGrasse Tyson

In this episode, should the Republicans fire Michael Steele, or now that he's hip-hop-ified the party, should they fizz-ire him? Then, NASA's ending manned spaceflight. Why did I invest all that money in astronaut ice cream? And my guest, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, is here to discuss the future of the space program, or as it's now called, the Earth program. I hope they can resolve the situation in Kyrgyzstan. They are our nation's top supplier of consonants. This is The Colbert Report.
