The producers of Cosmos added in their own statement, "The credo at the heart of COSMOS is to follow the evidence wherever it leads".

"In any claim, evidence matters".

Another season of the show - Cosmos: Possible Worlds - is slated to debut on March 3, 2019 on Fox although it's unclear at the moment if these accusations will have any effect on the show's release.

Last year, another woman, musician Tchiya Amet, accused the TV host of sexually assaulting her when they were both students at the University of Austin. Explaining that he gets "almost giddy" when he sees clothing, jewelry or tattoos that portray the universe, deGrasse Tyson wrote that the woman was wearing a sleeveless dress with a tattooed solar system extending up her arm, "and while I don't explicitly remember searching for Pluto at the top of her shoulder, it is surely something I would have done in that situation".

Watson claims she left Tyson's employ because of inappropriate behavior, including "misogynistic comments" and remarks about women's weight.

In a joint statement, Fox Broadcasting Company and National Geographic said, "We have only just become aware of the recent allegations regarding Neil deGrasse Tyson". But what many of these men are missing is that the loud response is the raison d'etre of the movement: it is a condemnation of the decades of silence and the systemic dismissal of women's experiences of sexual misconduct and harassment.

Tyson wrote that he would fully cooperate with the investigation into the allegations.

But when Tyson invited her to his home after a day on set, Watson said, he removed his shirt so he was only wearing an undershirt and started to serve wine and cheese.

According to her, Tyson began to peek underneath her dress in order to find Pluto and while she acknowledges that the instance was not necessarily assault, it points two what she describes as "creepy behavior". She said she quit her job due to the overtures. Amet, who previously went by Staci Hambric, told Patheos that the alleged sexual encounter caused her to drop out of the astronomy program and seek therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder. Katelyn Allers that Tyson groped her in 2009.

"I'm the accused, so why believe anything I say?" he asks. "I just didn't want to make a fuss", Watson says.

"In my mind's eye", he wrote, "I'm a friendly and accessible guy, but going forward, I can surely be more sensitive to people's personal space, even in the midst of my planetary enthusiasm".
