There Can Be Only One: Neil DeGrasse Tyson Weighs In On Millennium Falcon Versus Starship Enterprise

This is a short video of Neil DeGrasse Tyson answering a fan's question about whether he would choose the Millennium Falcon or the Starship Enterprise, and why. SPOILER: Neil chooses the Enterprise because it has real scientists and engineers on board monitoring its vital systems. Plus he likes that it's the first sci-fi spaceship that wasn't designed to go from point A to point B (i.e. Earth to another planet), but was rather designed STRICTLY FOR EXPLORATION. Which one would you choose? I would also choose the Enterprise, but only because it's way bigger so I could probably sell it for more after I crash it into a couple planets.

Hit the jump for the wow, he really put some thought into that.

Thanks to Cameron, who would pick the Death Star.
