"Half of all Americans doubt that the universe began with a Big Bang, according
to a 2014 poll by the Associated Press. A 2015 study found that one in four
Americans don't know the difference between astronomy and astrology. And a
similar number think the Sun goes around the Earth according to a recent
National Science Foundation survey.
"If you listen carefully, you'll hear the faint but unmistakable sound of
astronomers losing the will to live.”
