All due respect to Tyson, learning to talk in sound bites is a lousy way to present science, or world events. All that does is cater to the ADHD-style of broadcast "news," which is often misleading due to incomplete reporting.
Science and its discoveries can be made accessible to the layman, but they cannot be made interesting.
I disagree. I think finding, "Krypton," or a planet that has the likely real life chractertics of Krypton as described in the superman comics and films makes astrophysics interesting to a lot more people than calling it planet AEY-312 and perhaps encourages younger people to get into the field.
