Neil deGrasse Tyson appeared on "CBS This Morning" to discuss Christopher Nolan's latest sci-fi blockbuster "Interstellar." The cosmologist also unleashed a series of impromptu tweets about the film and whether the science holds up.

There are no (real) spoilers and Tyson makes it clear that this is not a review of whether or not he likes the film, it's merely an explanation of the science. (And "Interstellar" seems to get better marks than "Gravity.")

So what did Tyson think? Watch the clip and read the tweets below:
