If there’s anyone who has the right to get apoplectic over stupid conspiracy theories involving space, it’s Neil deGrasse Tyson, and when he recently appeared on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, he did not disappoint. When Wilmore sat down with his panel, he confronted deGrasse Tyson right off the bat on the theory that the Apollo moon landing was faked. What ensued was a great moment in scientific conniptions, which are the best conniptions, if you ask me.
