Could Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur have actually happened? Let’s ask a scientist.


Previously the great Neil deGrasse Tyson, American astrophysicist, author, and host of the relaunched Cosmos TV series, answered if it was scientifically possible that dinosaurs and humans could have co-existed if that asteroid missed the Earth as hypothesized in Pixar’s “The Good Dinosaur.” The answer? It wouldn’t be impossible, but it wasn’t likely.

Now deGrasse Tyson is back to drop a little more science on you looking at the possibility of unlikely pairings such as “could dinosaurs and humans be friends?”

I totally love science, don’t you? I just don’t expect my animation to be held to such high standards and am glad that he creative types are allowed, you know creativity in telling their stories.
