Tyson uses his scientific knowledge expertise to deduce that the moon, which President John F. Kennedy sees in the movie, does not work that way should be. He notes that the events of Chappaquiddick took place two days before the first moon landing on July 18, 1969. He says that instead of a full moon, the moon would have been considered a four-day old growing crescent
He adds that the moon was already depicted at the time of the events in the film, which was done at midnight. Tyson unwraps the tweet by saying, "I'm just saying."
Like everything Neil deGrasse Tyson tweets, it did not take long for Twitter to respond to what he had said on the internet. The tweets use the usual tactic of having fun with Tyson without being really insulting. One person told Neil deGrasse Tyson that he was "that guy," while another told him he used to be cool.

Another user tells Tyson that he should nitpick many other films using false science. The user includes Deep Impact and Armageddon to show examples of inaccuracies.

Others opted to respond with humor to Tyson's request for correct moon phases. David Hayter tweeted that when the moon is a growing crescent, as the scientists should land on the moon

Someone else adopted the tactic of dismissal Tyson for sending such a request. That person tweeted that they thought the tweet came from a spoofing account until the blue check was noticed next to Tyson's name.

Last time on Twitter, Neil DeGrasse Tyson adopted the phrase "Save the Earth". He has also refuted the theory of flat earth.
