Neil deGrasse Tyson, the astrophysicist host of Cosmos, whose musings on science have made him a celebrity, recently landed himself in a public scandal when he misquoted—or entirely fabricated—a quote by President Bush during a public speech. Sean Davis of The Federalist called Tyson out in an article that began:

“I’m beginning to think this Neil deGrasse Tyson fellow is a serial fabricator of quotes.” — President Thomas Jefferson, “Stuff Jefferson Said: The Prequel,” Originally self-published at in 1573

After several other news sources were unable to verify the quote, Tyson replied with a non-apology on Facebook, stating essentially that the details of his speech don’t matter, because he was making a broader point. Although this might seem like an odd statement for a man of science, shortly after Tyson began appearing on social media with broader points on another controversial subject—the nature of love.

Perhaps surviving controversy has emboldened Tyson, and given him the freedom to speak honestly on the topic of intimate relationships. Whatever the reason, we thank him for sharing his wisdom. Here are Neil deGrasse Tyson’s twenty greatest musings on love:
