Happy ‘Back to the Future Day’ From Neil deGrasse Tyson

Hello, McFly! Welcome to October 21, 2015. It might feel like your average Wednesday, but this marks the day that Marty McFly and Doc Brown set their time-traveling DeLorean to in Steven Spielberg’s “Back to the Future Part II.” And it also marks the day we get to dissect the creativity of the futurists of 1989.

Who better to weigh in on such sci-fi geekdom than StarTalk’s own astrophysicist, author, and science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson? In this clip, Neil talks about what the filmmakers got right and and what futurists tend to get wrong.

The season two premiere of StarTalk, featuring former President Bill Clinton, airs this Sunday at 11/10c.
