Jack Could Have Survived In "Titanic" According To Neil deGrasse Tyson

Jack's controversial death in the film “Titanic” is a point of contention for many fans who argue that there was plenty of room on the wooden door for both Rose and Jack to stay afloat.

Now, science enthusiast Neil deGrasse Tyson is sounding off on how Jack could have survived the freezing waters and survived his controversial death.

deGrasse Tyson is more concerned with Jack’s desire to survive the tragedy. He said, "Whether or not he could’ve been successful, I would’ve tried more than once. You try once. ‘Oh, this is not gonna work. I will just freeze to death in the water.’ No, excuse me. No! The survival instinct is way stronger than that in everybody, especially in that character. He’s a survivor, right? He gets through. He gets by.”

DeGrasse Tyson even had another character that he felt had the skill set and vision to have changed the course of history in the situation.

He said, "I’ll tell you this, if that character was Matt Damon from ‘The Martian,’ he would’ve made an outboard motor and saved everybody. This is how science can help you!”
