Andy Samberg asks Neil deGrasse Tyson about sex robots, and yes, that really happened
When you get the opportunity to ask world-renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson absolutely anything about the known universe, odds are you’d have some pretty important questions. Like, we don’t know, are we alone in the universe? Is time travel possible? Are alternate realities a thing?
At which point he used the amazing opportunity to ask whether having sex with a robot would count as cheating.
Okay, in Samberg’s defense, he also asked about all that other stuff (and also in his defense, we kind of want to know about the robot sex thing too, now that it’s out there…).
And, as expected, Tyson answered all questions like a boss (odds are we’re NOT alone, and it’s probably not cheating if that robot is designed to look like your partner).
Interesting! We can get on board with that!
Oh, and Tyson also noted that there’s definitely a chance that aliens have already searched the universe for signs of intelligent life, decided we weren’t intelligent enough to bother with, and left.
