Author's Notes: Idek where this idea came from. Some random conversation with my sister and The BFF about the end of the world and then someone declared that if meteors were actually going to destroy Earth, Neil deGrasse Tyson would save us. Before I knew it, I was writing this fic, completely in line with any standard SyFy channel original movie. It’s my longest piece of fan-fiction to date. A lot of this story even surprised me. I actually went back and added some standard SyFy movie channel actors to this piece, because it’s not a SyFy movie without them. And I had to like research science stuff for this story, though only a little, because again, SyFy channel standards of science. Also I read Neil’s entire Wikipedia entry, which seriously, go read it. I think I am in love with this man now. Do you know he is practiced in four different styles of dance? Well, he is.

Dedication: This one’s for liptonrm, because you deserve all the cheesy SyFy channel movies in your honor and of course, because of your undying love for the man himself, Neil deGrasse Tyson.
