Tyson says that his greatest fear is that we have already been visited by extraterrestrials, but they chose to not make contact with us. He says that his fear is that they decided there is no intelligent life on Earth.

Tyson says that there are lots of planets in the universe and that it is very possible that there are planets out there that have outlived their intelligent species. That's some heavy stuff for a Monday.
