8:31 am
long ago. they released the ipod nine months later. the store opened in 2003. it was such a big part of the music industry because they were losing revenue to napster, and so this was a solution. and they revolutionized music by selling songs for 99 cents. >> how do we feel about this death? >> i don't know how i feel about it either. this chapter loomed so large for a while ends up so brief. >> what's interesting, they bought the tunes for 99 cents and now their library disappeared. >> it moves forward into whatever the next generation is. most are getting their music from streaming services. >> so ownership is kind of a meaningless concept. >> butt has, in fact, rejuv nated the music business. >> you're talking to somebody who still has an ipod. >> really. >> yes, i do. >> you have it on your phone. >> i know. but it uses up the battery. >> batteries are living longer, gayle. >> i also have a topic you could

say is the best of music past. the moustache. this is going to be a moustache-heavy hour. neil degrasse tyson has one and a football player has one. he took a hit. the helmet came off possession the helmet off to the despair of their spouses. one said he's not even a jaguar. i domino why he's trying it. >> this is an interesting look. >> you're supposed to do it on the front. they call it the fu manchu. they call it the few minchu. if my dad grows one, i'll grow one. i'll be the first anchor. >> i'm sorry. >> are you thinking about growing one? >> i'm would love to. >> what's stopping you? what's stopping you? >> z.

when he was 2. he's on his way to school. he's learned it and he believes i. i think that's a beautiful thing. the power of words really, really works. so congratulations to little ayaan. >> we learned that from tyler perry, how important it is what they say. >> the good and the bad. all right. astro physicist neil degrasse tyson is sharing his letter archive and is revealing his thoughts on the meaning of life and the meaning of big foot. his letters contains more than 100 letters, facebook posts, and other letters an detractors from family members. it's a fabulous place. good morning. welcome again. >> good morning. >> welcome back. >> i can't believe gayle still owns an ipod. >> yes, i do. >> that is the origin of the word podcast. >> there you go.
8:35 am
since the last time you were here, you went through three claims of sexual misconduct, you've retained your jobs. >> yes, yes. >> what have you learned in the past year going through all this? >> i learned to care about the support that i've received from friends, from families, from a fan base that was there throughout the entire time, and a lot of that fan base is sort of represented sort of spiritually and emotionally and intellectually in this collection of letters where it's people sharing their deepest issues, angst about the world. all i'm saying is that in this past year, i've learned to value that more than ever before. >> as anthony pointed out, there were investigations and you were cleared. but i'm curious how the past year has changed you. were you surprised you were even involved in a me too allegation. people who know you and love you
8:36 am
were surprised. were you? >> life is day to day. you don't know what's going to happen or who's going to say anything. what i do know is people -- there's a -- there's an understandable urge for people to take sides, to have opinions, even in the absence of information or only partial information. and the entire point of an investigation is to be thorough and get to the bottom of everything. it doesn't seem to -- for some people that doesn't matter, i suppose, but for due process, it matters greatly. >> it does matter that and for just the effort to get to whatever the truths that are out there. >> you did write in a public letter that's not in the book that the past year changed the way you think about personal space and you would rethink it and be more sensitive in the future. >> yeah. i have a lot of sort of spillage of personality. it's like, hey, how are you
8:37 am
doing? so the concept of personal space has evolved over the years, iny really range from big'to letters to your father. >> to calling him, tony, pooh-pooh head. >> one wrote deeply apologetic that when he was 10, he had accused of being a pew pew head for demoting pluto. he said, i'm deeply sorry for having hurt your feelings but i believe it now. but it was a deadpan letter with pooh-pooh head in quotes. that exchange is in there. >> you talk about how scientists could maybe communicate better. how so. >> we're not trained to communicate. we're trained to be in the lab and get our work done. to cross over could be awkward, difficult, even impossible for many. so what's important here is to at least have analogies that
8:38 am
people can relate to. if you have some ail millionaire, you to a doctor. the doctor says here's a pill that 3% of the researchers say will kill you. here's another one that doctors say there's a 97% chance it will kill you. they're going to take the 97% pill. >> this is called your most personal book to date. i love what you say about your children. you say people ask how do you teach your own children. you don't worry about what they know but how they think. when you see something are your curious about it? do you poke it? do you probe it? think about how much effort parents put in to keep a neat house in the presence of creating children. >> guilty. >> no. the entropy they create, the disorder of the house is the consequence of them being curious. >> one of the consequences is
