Cosmos was postponed a week for the Coca-Cola 600, so Neil deGrasse Tyson tweeted a bunch of cool stuff about "the physics of fast-moving things." Oh, hell yes.

(1) The finer points of spelling!
(2) The finer points of space travel!
(3) The finer points of banked turns!
(4) The finer points of friggin' spoilers, how do they work?
(5) The fine points of wishing for amazing #sports things to happen.
