StarTalk will airborne in April with the remaining 13 episodes of National Geographic Fox and National Geographic are searching for a broadcast date for "Cosmos". There will be no further comment.

Tyson denied these allegations and welcomed an investigation. He then wrote in a detailed article by Facebook titled "On Being Accused" that men accused of sexual discomfort in the #meToo-time are found guilty of the public for various reasons, "the most justified, some unjustified . "
"Evidence is relevant in every claim, evidence always matters," he wrote, "but what happens if it's just another person's word and the stories do not match? Then people tend to To judge who is more credible than who. And then an impartial investigation of the truth can best serve – and would have my full cooperation. "
