Relax! Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains Why We're Safe from a Zombie ApocalypseMost of us who are fans of zombie-themed movies, comics, TV shows, etc., don’t really believe such a scenario is possible, but the undead do provide plenty of food for thought and creative expression. So, just how scientifically feasible are they? Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson weighs in…

Appearing on the November 14th episode of “The Daily Show,” Buzzkill of Science Tyson debunks the science behind zombies, citing laws of physics and physiology. As for the notion of shooting them in the head, he says phooey, “You cannot kill something that’s already dead.

He talks of the perils of rigor mortis, if the dead would want to eat brains, why you can’t spread the disease by biting, and space zombies, culminating with a haunting tale of the universe’s eventual heat death.

Where was this guy on Halloween?

    Plus the most obvious reason: Decomposition. All you need to do is wait out a zombie, especially in hot climates. They will eventually rot to the point of collapsing. Not much of a threat when you’re an immobile pile of flesh and bone.

    That is one charming motherfucker. I’m not really into scientific discussions or anything, but whenever that dude talks I am riveted. He’s one of those people I would love to have a drink with.
