Here's What "Back To The Future" Got Right And Wrong About 2015, According To Neil deGrasse Tyson

"Double neckties [WTF?]"

As you probably already know, today is Back to the Future Day.


It's the day that Doc and Marty arrived in the DeLorean when they traveled to the future to save Marty's kid.

Right on cue, astrophysicist and Cosmos host Neil deGrasse Tyson is taking to Twitter to fact-check the movie's vision of the year 2015.

As it turns out, Back to the Future Part II got a lot of things right. We have video chat!

Our cameras are even better than imagined.


However, there are plenty of things that were just too much to hope for.

Like robotic dog walkers, for example.

Or a handy Mr. Fusion.

Or flying cars, which we might be better off without. The only thing worse than road rage is ~flying~ road rage.


Neil has a BTTF prediction or two that he wishes were real.

And some that he wishes had been wrong.

And a couple that are

No no no.


Apologies to Cubs fans, but Neil is kinda calling the NLCS right now.

But of course, the MOST IMPORTANT prediction is this one. And there's still hope!

Thanks Neil!
