When I was young I definitely required a full 8 hours of sleep. For some strange reason, almost immediately after I had my first child (I'm male) I developed the super-human ability to function quite well on 3-5 hours of sleep.

I don't think there would be a Hollywood blockbuster and funding of related programs if there wasn't at least some social awareness. Ethan Siegel's audience is a little more targeted.
I find it likely that one of Siegel's friends didn't get funding in favor of a more "cockamamie" program related to asteroid detection (which itself is more likely a cover for a US military radar installation).
They need to know how operate a cash register, fry machine, lawn mower, espresso machine and be able to take care of other people's children.
