SDCC 2012 – Neil deGrasse Tyson’s (Unplanned) Comic-Con Appearance

Tyson attended the annual Starship Smackdown panel in which Thor and X-Men: First Class co-writer Ashley Edward Miller, Legend of the Seeker producer Kay Reindl, Star Wars: Clone Wars writer Steve Melching, Free Enterprise producer Robert Meyer Burnett, Geek Magazine editor Jeff Bond, and artist Chris Gossett attempted to decide which sci-fi spaceship is the best in a bracket competition.
