    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson joins us to talk about one of our favorite subjects: space.

    In the three-chaptered video, Tyson speaks about the search for alien life inside and outside of the Goldilocks Zone, why the term dark matter should really be called dark gravity, and how the rotation of the Earth may have been the deciding factor in a football game.

    These fascinating space facts, as well as others shared in Tyson's books, make it easier for everyone to grasp complex ideas that are literally out of this world.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON:

    Neil deGrasse Tyson was born and raised in New York City where he was educated in the public schools clear through his graduation from the Bronx High School of Science. Tyson went on to earn his BA in Physics from Harvard and his PhD in Astrophysics from Columbia. He is the first occupant of the Frederick P. Rose Directorship of the Hayden Planetarium. His professional research interests are broad, but include star formation, exploding stars, dwarf galaxies, and the structure of our Milky Way. Tyson obtains his data from the Hubble Space Telescope, as well as from telescopes in California, New Mexico, Arizona, and in the Andes Mountains of Chile.Tyson is the recipient of nine honorary doctorates and the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal. His contributions to the public appreciation of the cosmos have been recognized by the International Astronomical Union in their official naming of asteroid 13123 Tyson.

    Tyson's new book is Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, you can check it at

    TRANSCRIPT:

    NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON: When we think of places you might find life we typically think of the Goldilocks Zone around the star where water would be liquid in its natural state. And if you get a little too close to the star, heat would evaporate the water and you don't have it anymore. It's gone. Too far away it would freeze and neither of those states of H2O are useful to life as we know it. We need liquid water. So you can establish this Green Zone, this habitable zone, this Goldilocks Zone, where if you find a planet orbiting there hey, good chance it could have liquid water. Let's look there first for life as we know it.

    Now it turns out that this source of heat, of course is traceable to the sun and if you go farther out everything water should be frozen, all other things being equal. But Europa, a moon of Jupiter sitting well outside of the Goldilocks Zone is kept warm not from energy sources traceable to the Sun, but from what we call the tidal forces of Jupiter itself. So, Jupiter and surrounding moons are actually pumping energy into Europa. And how does it do that? As Europa orbits Jupiter its shape changes. It's not fundamentally different from tides rising and falling on Earth. The shape of the water system of the Earth is responding to tidal forces of the moon. And when you do that to a solid object, the solid object is stressing. And because of this, a consequence of this is that you are pumping energy into the object. It is no different from when you say to anyone who's familiar with racquet sports, indoor racquet sports. It could be racquetball or squash. You say let's arm up the ball before we start playing.

    You want to hit it around a few times. You are literally warming up the ball. It's not just simply let's get loose. You are literally warming up the ball. How? You are distorting it every time you smack it and then the resilience of the ball pops it back into shape and every time you do that, every smack, you're pumping energy into the ball. It's not fundamentally different from what's going on in orbit around Jupiter. So, you have this frozen world, Europa, completely frozen on its surface but you look at the surface and there are cracks in the ice. There are ridges in the ice where there's a crack and it shifted and then refroze. So this ridge has a discontinuity in the crack and it continues in another place. So what this tells you is that Europe cannot be completely frozen because if it were nothing would be moving. You look at the surface of Europa, the frozen surface, there are like ice chunks that are shifted and refrozen and shifted again. It looks just like if you fly over the Arctic Ocean.

    Fly over the Arctic Ocean in the winter...

  • The Multiverse Hypothesis Explained by Neil deGrasse Tyson

    10:03

    The multiverse hypothesis or theory holds that a group of multiple universes (possibly infinite universes) comprise everything that exists: The entirety of space, time, matter, energy, information, and the physical laws and constants that describe them. The renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson explains in detail the multiverse hypothesis.

    However, prominent physicists are divided about whether any other universes exist outside of our own. Some even go as far as to say that the multiverse is not a legitimate topic of scientific inquiry. Because it can not be empirically falsified. But Neil deGrasse Tyson among other prominent cosmologists, thinks that given our understanding of quantum mechanics and the theory of General relativity, the possibility of the existence of the multiverse is a legitimate scientific hypothesis.

    Steven Weinberg said that if the multiverse existed, the hope of finding a rational explanation for the precise values of quark masses and other constants of the standard model that we observe in our Big Bang is doomed, for their values would be an accident of the particular part of the multiverse in which we live.

    Some scientists analyzed the data from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, an uncrewed spacecraft operating from 2001 to 2010 that measured temperature differences across the sky in the cosmic microwave background, the radiant heat remaining from the Big Bang, and claimed they found evidence suggesting that our universe collided with other parallel universes in the distant past.

    However, a more thorough data analysis from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe and from the Planck Satellite, a space observatory operated by the European Space Agency from 2009 to 2013, which mapped the anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background, did not find any statistically significant evidence of universe collisions. there was no evidence of any gravitational pull of other universes on ours either. And to add insult to injury to the proponents that the multiverse hypothesis has been backed up by statistical evidence, the Planck satellite, has a resolution three times higher than the WMA Probe.


    Our brains are not evolutionarily equipped to intuitively understand quantum mechanics and large scale cosmic phenomena. But Neil deGrasse Tyson with his usual wits explains the multiverse hypothesis in layman's terms.

  • The Fermi Paradox With Neil deGrasse Tyson - Where Are All The Aliens?

    12:12

    Since the birth of philosophy, we've never stopped wondering about the answer to the question: Are we alone?
    Neil deGrasse Tyson tackles the possibility of the prevalence of life in the cosmos by comparing our sole data-point we have, life on Earth. He points to the fact that life on Earth formed as soon as it had a chance after the late heavy bombardment period.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson also extrapolates from the fossil record that Intelligence as we humans have defined it is not necessary for survival, therefore intelligent life in the cosmos might be extremely rare.

    In the summer of 1950 Italian-American physicist Enrico Fermi, while walking to lunch with his fellow physicists was having a casual conversation about recent UFO reports and the possibility of faster-than-light travel. Allegedly Fermi suddenly during lunch said, But where is everybody?

    This later became known as the Fermi problem or paradox. Which is the apparent contradiction between the lack of evidence for extraterrestrial life and the high estimate probability for their existence.

    So what could possibly explain this semblant paradox?

    Whatever is preventing non-living matter from undergoing Abiogenesis in time, to expanding lasting life as measured by the Kardashev scale, in the context of the Fermi paradox, is known as the Great Filter.

    As NASA has explored our solar system and beyond, it has developed increasingly sophisticated tools to address our endless curiosity for the possibility of life existing elsewhere in the cosmos. Within our solar system, NASA’s missions have searched for signs of both ancient and current life, especially on Mars and soon, Jupiter’s moon Europa. Beyond our solar system, missions, such as Kepler, are revealing thousands of planets orbiting other stars. Fueling our imaginations further with bewilderment, wondering if there are other civilizations out there, perhaps asking the same question. Are we alone?

    A growing number of people believe we've already answered this question due to recent UFO reports over the last few years. However, eye-witness testimony and ambiguous video footage does not qualify as extraordinary evidence to definitively answer this age old question. But to be respectful to the people who believe we've been visited by extraterrestrial crafts, we will dedicate a whole video on the topic.

  • The Origin of The Universe With Neil deGrasse Tyson

    10:02

    The origin of the universe is certainly among the most intriguing topics in all of science. Neil deGrasse Tyson explains how the universe came to be. He explains the big bang theory and the subsequent evolution of the universe.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson not only explains the origin of the Universe, he also gives an inspiring speech about the origin of life on Earth and our place in the cosmos.

    The universe has inspired scientific discoveries in a broad array of disciplines including astronomy, physics, chemistry, mathematics, and biology. The Big Bang itself forms the basis of the current Standard Model of cosmology, which describes the evolution of the universe from the earliest known states through the appearance of structural fragments.

    The latest data shows that the expansion of the universe is accelerating. This means that the galaxies are moving further apart from each other which indicates that space is stretching. It has been suggested to explain this by the gravitational potential of dark energy. This theory suggests that dark energy has a positive pressure which pushes the universe apart.

    Dark energy is the most accepted explanation for the observations of an accelerating universe. And it remains an active field of research in cosmology.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson also briefly mentions the Multiverse hypothesis and how it fits with the big bang model.

    Information from modern experiments, such as the Planck satellite and WMAP short for Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, and from astronomical observations in the 21st century, has allowed cosmologists to increase the precision of their predictions about the universe's age early in the universe's history.

    It is fascinating to think how much of the nature of the universe science has revealed to us. But we're still only scratching the surface of a cosmic iceberg. Most of the universe, and the multiverse, if it exists, still remains in the realm of the unknown. But scientists are determined in the quest to expand the frontier of knowledge and push the boundaries of ignorance, and shed a light to an ever growing and expanding universe.

  • StarTalk Podcast: Cosmic Queries – Edge of the Universe with Neil deGrasse Tyson and Janna Levin

    53:26

    What’s beyond the edge of the universe? Is there even an edge at all? On this episode of StarTalk Radio, Neil deGrasse Tyson answers your fan-submitted questions about the mysteries, wonders, and theories that exist on the bleeding edge of cosmology. But in order to explore the true depths of the unknown we need to bring in a little extra help – enter astrophysicist Janna Levin, PhD.

    We start with the basics: is the universe infinite? Janna tells us why we’re still uncertain. We explore the idea of the multiverse and the idea of our universe never having an “edge.” Could those distant galaxies we see be our own galaxy in the past? As if that’s not mind-bending enough, we haven’t even gotten to the dimensionality questions yet.

    Find out more about other possible dimensions. We discuss why it’s so difficult to detect other dimensions, if they’re even there in the first place. Janna and Neil help us visualize a 4th dimension. You’ll hear why adding another dimension might provide too much freedom for molecules to bind together and create macroscopic things. We also explore the idea that our three dimensions are glued to a membrane that’s floating in a higher dimensional space. We reflect on Monsters, Inc. and how the film plays with moving through different dimensions.

    Discover more about the shape of our universe. Could it be in the shape of a loop? We break down the Big Bang and the birth of the universe. Find out more about dark matter, dark energy, and if they’re two sides of the same coin. Janna explains why dark energy should be thought of as an invisible ocean. Investigate the “information” that lies on the surface of a black hole. We track Voyager 2’s journey into interstellar space and what that means for us back on Earth. All that, plus, Janna shares why she thinks the study of dark matter and dark energy are the most important fields of study in science today.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains The Weirdness of Quantum Physics

    10:24

    Quantum mechanics is the area of physics that deals with the behaviour of atoms and particles on microscopic scales. Since its inception, the many counter-intuitive aspects and results of quantum mechanics have provoked strong philosophical debates and many interpretations.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson explains quantum physics in a way that is understandable even for the lay person. In Quantum Mechanics there is no such thing as absolute certainty when looking for something. This phenomenon is known as Uncertainty Principle and was Introduced first in 1927 by the German physicist Werner Heisenberg. Heisenberg realized that one implication of quantum physics is that the act of measurement always disturbs the object measured.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson explains that the whole computer world is based on the principle of Quantum Physics. We are able to manipulate the electrical properties of silicon only because we can study the wave nature of electrons.

    Our daily routines are often governed by technology that is directly related to Quantum Physics, thus our lives rest upon these fundamental scientific discoveries.

    Another hard concept to grasp is Quantum entanglement. Einstein referred to it as spooky action at a distance. It occurs when a pair or group of particles is generated, interact, or share spatial proximity in a way such that the quantum state of each particle of the pair or group cannot be described independently of the state of the others. But Neil deGrasse Tyson and Lawrence Krauss explain this concept with everyday life examples which makes it a little bit easier to understand.

    As Neil deGrasse Tyson points out, the first quantum phenomena were observed more than a century ago. However scientists are still learning about this realm of our universe.

  • StarTalk Chat Room: A Deep Dive Into the Cosmos, with Neil deGrasse Tyson

    36:02

    On this episode of StarTalk Chat Room, we dive into episodes five and six of Cosmos: Possible Worlds. Neil deGrasse Tyson is joined in-studio by comic co-host Chuck Nice and neuroscientist Heather Berlin, PhD to break down the ins and outs of what went down in each episode.

    We start with episode five, “The Cosmic Connectome,” which investigates the wiring and functionality of the brain. Heather gives us a little history on the discovery of epilepsy. We explore the invention of the electroencephalogram (EEG) which is a test to evaluate the electrical activity in the brain. You’ll learn why epilepsy can be either genetic or “acquired.” You’ll also learn about the different types of seizures that can occur including “absence seizures.” Neil ponders if we will be able to diagnose someone with epilepsy before they have their first seizure. And, Heather tells us about some of the bleeding edge work being done at the Blue Brain Project and the Allen Institute for Brain Science.

    Then, we move on to episode six, “The Man of a Trillion Worlds,” which explores Carl Sagan’s impact on science communication. Discover how the terms like “astrobiology” came to be because of Carl. Neil and Chuck discuss Cosmos’ interesting use of animation to depict history.

    Neil takes us back to the first time he met Carl Sagan. He tells us about his trip to Cornell and his memorable visit to Carl’s office. We discuss the value of mentorship. You’ll learn why Neil eventually chose to go to Harvard over Cornell. All that, plus, you’ll hear why the field of science communication and beyond owes a debt of gratitude to Carl Sagan.

  • A Stellar New Year with Neil deGrasse Tyson – Cosmic Queries

    39:53

    Take our survey for a chance to win a copy of our Cosmic Queries book AUTOGRAPHED BY NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON!

    What will first contact with aliens be like? On this episode, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice say “Happy New Year!” by answering a grab bag of fan questions about aliens, string theory, moon landing skeptics, and more!

    Will our first contact with aliens mean doom for us all? We explore why that might not be the case. Is it all just a projection of ourselves? Are we all just worms on a street? Is it true that string theory requires ten dimensions? Are particles points or strings? Learn about electrons, electricity, and matter in higher dimensions. What is a positron?

    If we wanted to create a second moon how would we do it? We explore how much stuff it would take and the impact of gravity. Is it possible to make anything other than a sphere? We ask: Why is there so much skepticism about the moon landing? Is there any believable way it could’ve been faked? We break down moon landing deniers and why they’re right– just kidding, they’re completely wrong.

    We explore plans to return to the moon and the commercialization of space travel. Are there any resources on the moon that we could use? Could we make Disneyland on the moon?

    Lot of content is not create by me I just shared it, reason is simple no one can be expert in all fields of science and knowledge. Details are important that's why I mostly uploads long and detailed videos and complete audio books... that's why I mostly prefer to upload complete and detailed videos by experts. (very few times I uploads short video, only if it contains discussion or detailed information & knowledge)

    Q : What's the purpose ¿
    A : if we want to create society based on Science and Knowledge we have to spread Science and Knowledge.
    Q : Why I'm doing this ¿
    A : I don't believe in complaining, I believe in doing. A small step towards society of science and knowledge.(Type 1 Civilization The Kardashev scale).
    Q : How to contact ¿
    A : In the end of description links are available.

    .....Few more lines.....
    ???? Charles Darwin.......The survival of the fittest
    ???? Albert Einstein.......The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.
    ???? Deep Trivedi.......There is no other enemy of a human being except his own nature
    ???? Brian Greene.......When kids look up to great scientists the way they do to great musicians and actors, civilization will jump to the next level.
    ???? Louis Pasteur.......Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world.
    ???? Neil deGrasse Tyson.......We spend the first year of a child's life teaching it to walk and talk and the rest of its life to shut up and sit down. There's something wrong there.
    ???? Michio Kaku.......For those who believe, no explanation is necessary; for those who do not believe, no explanation will suffice.
    ???? Socrates.......One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.

  • StarTalk Podcast: Neil deGrasse Tyson & Anthony Daniels on C-3PO and the Rise of Robots

    1:4:32

    On this episode of StarTalk Radio, Neil deGrasse Tyson sits down with Anthony Daniels, the man behind one of the most iconic characters in film history – C-3PO. Anthony (as C-3PO) is the only person to appear in all nine Star Wars films spanning multiple decades and you’ll hear about his time involved in the biggest movie franchise on Earth. In-studio, Neil is joined by comic co-host Chuck Nice and robot ethicist Kate Darling, PhD, to explore C-3PO’s cultural impact and the rise of robotics in our society.

    Kate investigates “human-robot interaction from a social, legal, and ethical perspective” so she is just the person we want for this conversation. We start with a simple question – what makes C-3PO so likeable? Find out why C-3PO’s appeal stems directly from his humanity. Anthony tells us why he wasn’t really a fan of science fiction before he took the part of C-3PO. You’ll learn about the development of C-3PO and why his subtle asymmetrical design brings his “humanity” to the forefront.

    We explore how robots have evolved since the beginning of robotics. We breakdown the differences between androids and robots. Find out more about the “uncanny valley.” We ponder the concept of the “soul.” Kate enlightens us to what our interactions with robots tell us about our personalities. Can you create strong bonds with a robot? Should our laws protect robots?

    We investigate how film’s portrayal of artificial intelligence has created unnecessary fear of robotic advancements. We also explore the flaws still found in today’s cutting edge technology. Lastly, we ponder how robots will be introduced into more shared spaces like grocery stores, cafes, etc. All that, plus, Kate tells us what the biggest dilemma will be as robotics continue to advance.

  • From the Theatre to Mars with Dr. Aomawa Shields

    57:07

    Exoplanets? Low Mass Stars? Goldilocks zones? On this episode, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Negin Farsad explore the universe of exoplanets, science communication, and acting with astronomer and speaker Dr. Aomawa Shields. Should Neil get an MFA in acting?

    We discuss Aomawa’s Rising Stargirls program and how she applies her theater background to science communication. How do you connect people to the universe from an early age? Find out why Neil names lobsters before cooking them. We explore what forces lead Aomawa to acting away from astronomy and what phenomena lead her back. Is there ever too much school?

    We ask some patron questions: How does having an MFA in acting help Aomawa communicate? Does it help get her funding? Are there any drawbacks? Discover Neil’s role in the cinematic arts and what he’s learned during his small forays into acting. Is it possible to terraform with current technology? Should we terraform if given the option? We break down the conditions where it may be morally acceptable to terraform a planet. Would it be better to just fix earth and explore for the sake of exploring?

    Could young red dwarf stars create a volatile goldilocks zone for otherwise habitable planets? What are the upsides of being a planet orbiting a low mass star? If you had to choose another planet to go to, where would you go?

    You’ll learn about fascinating planets in far off systems and what we know about them. We take a look at non-carbon-based life and whether we are biased in our search for other life in the universe. What about life that depends on wine instead of water? You’ll also find out the shape of black holes. Are they just a big landfill in the sky? Are we going to be able to travel to other planets if the universe is expanding so fast? All that, plus, learn about TESS– Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite– and other projects to discover distant worlds!

  • The Hidden Chemistry of Everything with Neil deGrasse Tyson and Kate the Chemist – Cosmic Queries

    50:52

    Is chemistry truly everywhere? On this episode, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice answer fan questions about chemistry with Kate Biberdorf, aka Kate the Chemist. Discover the chemical reactions that make our world work!

    What is fire? We break down combustion reactions and how– scientifically– dragons could breathe fire, if they existed, that is. We discuss Kate the Chemist’s fiction series as well as her new book for adults, It's Elemental: The Hidden Chemistry of Everything ( Dive into the periodic table through the eyes of a chemist and an astrophysicist. Astrochemistry anyone? We discuss where we can find lithium on Earth and why not all the iron is in Earth’s core. Did some iron get distracted?

    Why did many scholars practice alchemy? Was it just in the pure pursuit of science? Learn some fun chemistry experiments you can do at home. What is stoichiometry? What is catalysis? You’ll learn about functional groups and how an element’s state impacts its reactions. Why don’t we power cars using hydrogen?

    Find out about salt ionization and how salt water works. Does cooking food change its chemistry? What is caramelization? Are we on the cusp of discovering a new branch of chemistry? How does an atom work? As a society, have we reached a scientific plateau? We also discuss if there is a chemical solution to combating climate change? All that, plus, what element did astrophysicists discover on the sun before we discovered it on Earth? The answer might surprise you.

  • StarTalk Podcast: Neil deGrasse Tyson Answers Your Deadliest Cosmic Queries

    47:26

    On this episode of StarTalk Radio, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice are ready to get morbid. We’ve gathered your fan-submitted Cosmic Queries that explore all things death, from the death of humanity to the death of the universe.

    To start, we explore what reality would be like in an apocalypse. Neil tells us what skills he thinks would be necessary to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. We discuss the importance of having the right weapon in a post-apocalyptic world. This leads Neil to air his grievances with the lightsabers found in Star Wars. You’ll find out how a meteor strike would disrupt civilization as we know it. We also explore The Walking Dead and its emphasis on the true danger of a zombie apocalypse: human relationships.

    Discover more about the death of humanity. Will we outlive the Earth? How long will humanity survive? Are artificially intelligent computers secretly waiting to take over the world? We break down the inverse relationship between intelligence and survival. Neil describes how the universe will end not with a bang, but with a whimper.

    Find out how Neil and Chuck want to die! We investigate the 2005 film War of the Worlds and how it differs from the original story by H.G. Wells. Neil recites the final narration from the film and from the original story.

    Then, we dive headfirst into black holes. We ponder if the universe could be victim to a collective hyper-massive black hole. You’ll also hear about Hawking radiation. You’ll learn the difference between disintegrating and decomposing. Lastly, we debate if human contact is necessary for your own survival. All that, plus, you’ll find out who might have been the loneliest person in history.

  • Things You Thought You Knew with Neil deGrasse Tyson

    48:42

    Mass? Weight? Density? There are some things you thought you knew and on this episode of StarTalk Radio, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice are here to investigate what we know and what we thought we knew.

    We start with mass, weight, and density. If you’re trying to get in shape you need to lose weight, right? Neil deGrasse Tyson says wrong. Neil tells us why when you want to get in shape, you need to lose mass. You’ll learn why a weight-loss book written by a physicist would just be one sentence. We explore the difference between mass and weight and why weight is all about forces. Find out why heavy cream is lighter than skim milk. We explore how the hull of a ship keeps the ship buoyant. All that, plus, Neil explains why, if you want to lose weight quickly, just head to the Moon and hop on a scale.

    Then, we move on to another seemingly simple question: Why does ice float? Neil explains why peculiar things happen to water when it changes state. We explore what happens when water freezes. Chuck gives a demonstration of why you usually see 10% of ice above water. You’ll learn why the arctic ice sheets float on the water. And, why the ice we need to worry about is the ice on land and the “runoff.” We discuss the power of freezing ice (which leads to bursting pipes). Find out more about the density of water. What if bodies of water froze from the bottom up? Neil tells us how a certain property of water protects aquatic life over the winter.

    Lastly, we turn our attention to space. How much do you weigh in space? Neil tells us why we should be thinking about how much mass something contains instead of how much something weighs. You’ll learn why your weight in water is basically zero. Why are astronauts weightless in space? Neil explains how Sir Isaac Newton discovered orbits. Find out why most energy from a rocket launch is not used to get the rocket into space. All that, plus, we explore the science of Ad Astra, The Expanse, and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson - Where Can We Find Alien Life?

    10:22

    American astrophysicist, planetary scientist, author, and science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson explains where we can possibly find alien life. He mentions how science has advanced enough so that there are ways to tell if life exists elsewhere without ever having to visit distant alien worlds.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson also explains biomarkers. On Earth, life leaves tell-tale signals in the atmosphere. Photosynthesis is ultimately responsible for the high oxygen levels and the thick ozone layer. Microbes emit methane and nitrous oxide into the atmosphere, and seaweeds emit chloromethane gas. These chemicals, when present in sufficient quantities, are indicators of life and are known as atmospheric biomarkers. Detecting them in the atmosphere of an exoplanet should, in theory, be a means of discovering whether life exists on any alien worlds.

    While biomarkers have never been spotted in observations of an exoplanet, because their signal is so faint, the new generation of telescopes being planned today, may be sensitive enough to detect them.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson also explains how Carbon is the most fertile element of the periodic table. If we're ever able to find evidence for alien life, out best guess is it will be carbon based. The kinds of living organisms currently known on Earth all use carbon compounds for basic structural and metabolic functions, water as a solvent, and DNA or RNA to define and control their form. If life exists on other planets or moons it may be chemically similar, though it is also possible that there are organisms with quite different chemistries.

    NASA has announced that our next destination in the solar system is the unique, richly organic world Titan. Visiting this mysterious ocean world could revolutionize what we know about life in the universe.

    As of August 2021, there are 4,800 confirmed exoplanets.

    NASA’s first planet-hunting mission, the Kepler Space Telescope, paved the way for our search for life in the solar system and beyond. An important part of Kepler’s work was the identification of Earth-size planets around distant stars. 

    After nine years in deep space, Kepler collected data that indicates our sky is filled with billions of hidden planets – more planets even than stars. Making us wonder if or WHEN we will be able to find evidence for alien life.

    29:41

    (Published July 2017)

    #NeildeGrasseTyson unpacks #Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement, explains why he's fearless about AI, and reveals that he cleaned bathrooms while an undergrad at Harvard. Plus, the astrophysicist on why it's probable we're living in a simulation.

  • Globetrotter’s Guide to the Galaxy with Neil deGrasse Tyson

    49:01

    How does a gravity assist work? On this episode, Neil deGrasse Tyson and co-hosts Chuck Nice and Gary O’Reilly run us through physics phenomena with the help of our friends from the Harlem Globetrotters, Hot Shot Swanson and Cheese Chisholm.

    You’ll learn about the law of reflections and how spin helps stabilize a moving body. We answer the ever-present question: How do you get a ball to spin on your finger? Neil talks about what it’s like to become a mini two-planet solar system. Is Earth just one big treadmill? We break down momentum, mass, and velocity as we break down the Globetrotters’ signature shots. What makes a trick shot work?

    We invent some StarTalk signature shots, a shot Neil likes to call “The Far Side Of The Moon” and “The Gravity Assist.” How do we demonstrate the physics of our solar system on the basketball court? Did they pull it off? How does a gravitational slingshot work in space? Is there really a dark side of the moon? Plus, we learn a few Globetrotter tips for making a trick shot.

    How do you make a half-court shot? We look at the different techniques used by Cheese and Hotshot. What was the one dimension that gave them a problem? Is a half-court shot a trick shot? Does Gary have the right definition of “dribble”? Neil demonstrates to us why players should never miss a jump shot. Just how big is the basket? Would practicing with a smaller rim make you a better shooter? All that, plus, find out what cool tricks the StarTalk team was able to pull off against the Globetrotters.

    Thanks to our Patrons Helen Gilchrist, Elliot Frost, Lupita Valenz, Danny Andersen, Alex Thorne, Philip A. McKinney, and David Williams for supporting us this week.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains the Simulation Hypothesis

    7:53

    Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice are here (or are they?) to investigate if we're living in a simulation. We explore the ever-advancing computer power and how that impacts the simulation hypothesis. Chuck wonders if a simulation universe has anything to do with us not being able to travel at the speed of light. You'll learn about Bayesian statistics. Lastly, Neil tells us how he was ready to embrace the simulation hypothesis until he came across a certain idea that changed his mind.
