Full Episode | Cosmic Queries: Spacetime with Neil deGrasse Tyson

Fasten your interstellar seatbelt and flip your brain into overdrive. Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Godfrey are here to answer fan-submitted Cosmic Queries on the fabric of spacetime. Explore the edge of the known universe and whether there might be more unknown universe waiting beyond the horizon. You’ll hear about the fascinating theory describing our universe as a 3-D holographic projection of another higher-dimensioned reality. You’ll hear why dark matter could be “gravitational bleeding” from another dimension and how it’s possible that the study of dark matter and dark energy will unlock the secrets to traveling backwards in time. Investigate the connections between dark matter, Newtonian physics, and Occam’s razor. Neil also explains why the curvature of space is hard for us to see given that we are embedded in space itself. Find out about the Fermi paradox and the idea that extraterrestrial life might have already visited Earth and deemed life unintelligent. Discover more about Sir Isaac Newton: the problems Neil would ask him to solve today, how he invented calculus on a dare, and why Godfrey thinks he might be annoying to talk to in the modern era. All this, plus, a fan asks Neil, “How many physicists does it take to change a light bulb?” and his response is something you will not want to miss.

Cosmic Queries: Rocket Science is Hard (Full Episode)

Presenting the exclusive, YouTube video version of our full podcast episode, “Cosmic Queries: Rocket Science is Hard,” complete with a few glitches that got edited out of the podcast! Now you can watch host Neil deGrasse Tyson as he answers fan questions about Antares, Rosetta, Philae, the Space Shuttle and more with the help of Planetary Society CEO Bill Nye the Science Guy and comic co-host Chuck Nice. You’ll learn about the differences between ignoring known risks, as with Challenger and Columbia, and underestimating difficulties, as may be the case with Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo. Find out how Scott Hubbard helped change NASA’s mantra of “Faster, Better, Cheaper” – which led to the failed Mars Climate Orbiter and Mars Polar Lander missions – and replaced it with the successes of Spirit, Opportunity and Curiosity. The trio also discusses the possibility of finding life on comets and asteroids, the growing concern over artificial intelligence and robot uprisings, and the human drive to explore the unknown regardless of the risk.

Cosmic Queries: Space and Science Part 1 (Full Episode)

In our first full-length Cosmic Queries video episode, Bill and comic co-host Chuck Nice answer some of your most intriguing questions about space and science. Could life have started on Mars and ended up on Earth? What is the value of exploring Enceladus, Titan, Europa, and the rest of our Solar System? If the speed of light is constant, why is there a light shift in the Doppler effect? Get schooled by the Science Guy on information theory, the speed of light, and time. Learn about the accuracy of carbon dating, why there is less gravity at the center of the Earth than the surface, and how the Earth's rotation is 1/3 slower now than in prehistoric times. You'll also find out if you can start a fire with sound or build a space elevator from the Earth to the Moon. And of course, with Bill Nye as our guest host, you can count on just a bit of discussion about climate change as well.

Full Episode | Let’s Make America Smart Again, with Fareed Zakaria

In the first episode of our special edition Cosmic Queries series, “Let’s Make America Smart Again,” Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice welcome CNN journalist Fareed Zakaria to break down the impact of immigration on science and technological innovation in the America. Join us for an intellectual exploration into the reasons that the United States became the world’s leading scientific and educational powerhouse after World War II, and why our current practices may threaten our leadership. You’ll learn how the Manhattan Project and the V2 rocket fed into the US space program, which was built on the backs of foreign scientists. You’ll hear about some of our highest achieving immigrants, along with why foreign nations who are creating national ecosystems where talent can flourish are beginning to reshape the academic and scientific hierarchy around the world. Neil, Fareed and Chuck debate whether it’s appropriate to require certain levels of achievement from immigrants, and the difficulty in trying to predict where you can find talent, drive, and creativity. Find out why no science has ever been done that has not had geopolitical consequences or been embedded in a political system. Investigate the concept of alternate facts, and the current assault on expertise, knowledge, and science. You’ll also hear how improving relations with Russia can be done through science, similar to the Cold War period, when scientists from opposing sides were still able to work together on the Apollo-Soyuz Mission. All this, plus, Neil reminds us how the US missed the opportunity to discover the Higgs boson in Texas had we built our own Superconducting Super Collider here at home, and why even if scientific breakthroughs don’t happen in America, we must be at least thankful that they are happening at all.

Startalk Radio - Cosmic Queries: New Discoveries - Neil deGrasse Tyson talk
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There have been so many new discoveries in science in the last few years – and you’ve asked questions about all of them. So this episode your own personal astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and his trusty comic co-host Eugene Mirman tackle as many as they can. You’ll learn about bruises in the cosmic background radiation of the universe, using quantum entanglement for faster-than-light communication, the search for life on Mars and exoplanets, asteroid mining, black holes, universal expansion and our impending collision with the Andromeda galaxy – in 6 to 8 billion years. You’ll find out how an ion drive works, how space telescopes can use gravitational lensing to see farther into deep space, and how satellites stay in geostationary orbits. On a speculative level, Neil discusses warp drive technology, the multiverse, multiple time dimensions, and creationism.
