Brian Cox on faking the 1969 moon landing.
Tl;Dr, - If you believe it was faked, Brian thinks you're a "colossal nob".
This feels a bit "scripted" and maybe a bit superficial, but still has lots of interesting stuff:
Uh, no? We grew up learning that our sun has nine friends. Friend # 9 was Pluto.
Wait, are you saying Pluto can't be the Sun's friend because it's a dwarf?
I bet Professor Cox thinks Mr Como is a collosal nob.
Some men might take that as a compliment. The kind of men who hear what they want to hear.
How the hell did an astrologer become a scientist and what the fuck do they know about falling stars?
I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that I don't think Brian Cox actually wrote that letter.
Oh I don't doubt that. I was more pointing out the use of "astrologer" when they likely meant astronomer (or even astrophysicist) as they are vastly different things or maybe they were using it for comedic effect.
