Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson congratulated Trevor Noah on his debut as the new host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show.

Tyson had previously prodded former Daily Show host Jon Stewart over the opening to his show, noting that the Earth is depicted as rotating clockwise.

"Your Earth is spinning the wrong direction," he told Stewart in 2012. "I'm sorry. I just had to get that off my chest."
