As it turns out, the bat-signal may not actually be practical to manufacture and use in real life. On Monday, renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson took to his Twitter account to point to the fact that the iconic symbol only works in certain situations. The author further pointed out that Jim Gordon and other officials in Gotham may have a better chance of reaching the Caped Crusader via cell phone or vintage beeper.
DeGrasse Tyson tweeted, “Just happened to me: The famous Bat-signal calling on Batman’s crime-fighting prowess only works on cloudy nights – and never during the day.” “I think, a bat emoji sent to Bruce Wayne’s smart phone or even an old-fashioned beeper would improve that.”

When we spoke to him in 2020, Tyson said that Marvel is “hands down” more scientifically accurate than DC.
“Oh yeah. No question. Oh, no question,” Tyson said without skipping a beat. “Oh, that’s obvious. Marvel wins hands down on DC Comics, if almost for no other reason, minus Thor and maybe one or two others that I’ve lost track of, almost everyone with powers in Marvel Comics. , they are powers derived from something scientific that happened to them.”
The physicist continued, “Spider-Man. While he’s in a biology lab, where there’s a radioactive spider, he’s bitten. There’s the Hulk, who … it was gamma rays. Everyone has their own There’s a science-based story behind the superpowers, and that creates a fertile landscape you can go back to when you need it. Plus, Banner was a medical doctor, for goodness sake. So, it has value.”
Last December, the scientist even debunked the idea of Santa Claus giving presents to everyone around the world.
Tyson tweeted at the time, “Gifting all the world’s Christians in one night for Santa requires hypersonic speed through Earth’s lower atmosphere, vaporizing his reindeer and sleigh.”
