1233 Epic Rap Battle: Isaac Newton vs. Bill Nye & Neil deGrasse Tyson

In one corner: Sir Isaac Newton. Legendary astronomer, physicist, and mathematician. His Laws of Motion were published in 1687 and still serve as the basis to all physics education.

In the other corner: Bill Nye The Science Guy. Charismatic engineer and currently CEO of The Planetary Society. He has spent over two decades educating the public, inspiring the next generation of scientists to go forth and—dare I say it?—change the world.


The most recent edition of the hilarious YouTube series “Epic Rap Battles of History” features Weird Al Yankovic as Isaac Newton going up against Bill Nye (Nice Peter), who gets some surprise backup at the end. 

Who will win this epic battle?
