  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains Nothing

    13:45

    In this StarTalk video, we’re talking about nothing. Not in the Seinfeldian sense, but in the science sense. What is nothing? Neil explains how our usual definition of something being “nothing” is dictated by our senses.

    What if you wanted to get all the way down to true nothing? Well, even when there’s nothing, there’s air molecules, and a lot of them. So, what happens when you take out the air molecules? Find out just how much air molecules permeate in our environment, in our solar system, in interstellar space, and intergalactic space.

    Then, just when you think you truly have nothing, you’ll hear how quantum physics comes into play. Discover more about virtual particles and why the best “nothing” you could have is filled with virtual particles. All that, plus, we debate if being able to describe something that is nothing makes it something.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains Why You Can’t Reach Absolute Zero

    17:11

    Cool things happen at low temperatures. In this StarTalk explainer, we’re cooling things down – way down. But how cold can we actually get? Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice investigate the limits of temperature and a lot more.

    You’ll learn why there’s really no limit of how hot you can make something. On the flip side, we dive into why making things colder is a different story. How do you create a place where there is no heat? You’ll find out more about the Kelvin scale or absolute temperature scale.

    Neil takes us through the process of cooling things down. Discover the differences between temperature and heat energy. We explore the vibration of particles and dip our toes into Maxwell–Boltzmann distribution. Then, Neil tells us why we can never philosophically or theoretically reach absolute zero.

    To wrap things up, we investigate what happens when quantum physics take over. Discover more about superfluidity. All that, plus, you’ll hear about the Bose–Einstein condensate and how we can “shape-shift” matter.

  • 2013 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: The Existence of Nothing

    1:54:00

    Watch the 2020 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate on Alien Life:

    The concept of nothing is as old as zero itself. How do we grapple with the concept of nothing? From the best laboratory vacuums on Earth to the vacuum of space to what lies beyond, the idea of nothing continues to intrigue professionals and the public alike.

    Join moderator and Hayden Planetarium Director Neil deGrasse Tyson as he leads a spirited discussion with a group of physicists, philosophers and journalists about the existence of nothing. The event, which was streamed live to the web, took place at the American Museum of Natural History on March 20, 2013.

    PANELISTS:

    J. Richard Gott, professor of astrophysical sciences, Princeton University, and author of Sizing Up the Universe: The Cosmos in Perspective

    Jim Holt, science journalist and author of Why Does the World Exist? An Existential Detective Story

    Lawrence Krauss, professor of physics, Arizona State University and author of A Universe from Nothing: Why There is Something Rather Than Nothing

    Charles Seife, professor of journalism, New York University, and author of Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea

    Eve Silverstein, professor of physics, Stanford University, and co-editor of Strings, Branes and Gravity

    The late Dr. Isaac Asimov, one of the most prolific and influential authors of our time, was a dear friend and supporter of the American Museum of Natural History. In his memory, the Hayden Planetarium is honored to host the annual Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate — generously endowed by relatives, friends, and admirers of Isaac Asimov and his work — bringing the finest minds in the world to the Museum each year to debate pressing questions on the frontier of scientific discovery. Proceeds from ticket sales of the Isaac Asimov Memorial Debates benefit the scientific and educational programs of the Hayden Planetarium.

  • 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.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains Why Some Info Is Need to Know

    16:35

    When someone says that information is on a “need to know” basis, your mind might automatically think that the information is secretive, dangerous, etc. But, there’s another type of “need to know” information that involves different “levels” of information.

    On this StarTalk explainer video, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice are exploring these different “levels” of information. We discuss why, in certain circumstances, an idea is better than the details. To understand these levels of information, we explore the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. You’ll learn why you can say the Earth goes in a circle around the Sun and be “correct” even though it’s actually an elliptical orbit. And you can say it’s an elliptical orbit even though it’s actually a loop-de-loop!

    Find out how Earth’s tilt influences our seasons. You’ll also find out about the “libration” of the Moon or as Chuck calls it “Moon twerking.” And, we discuss Earth’s precession around the Sun. Lastly, Neil uses the size of the Sun as another example of understanding different levels of information. All that, plus, we explore why the scientific method allows for the possibilities of change.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains the Smallness of Molecules

    15:09

    How small is a molecule? In this StarTalk explainer, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice are here to help you visualize a molecule’s actual size.

    To start, Neil gives his favorite thought experiment to help us understand the size of molecules. You’ll learn why this leads Chuck to say he’s never drinking water again. Discover more about “quantum construction” and building things on a molecular level. You’ll learn about Avogadro's number and measuring things in mole.

    We explore why it’s remarkable that we were even able to discover molecules at all. Neil explains how our five senses held us back from discovering things until we invented ways outside our senses to discover them. All that, plus, we discuss why there’s a philosophical issue in our own physiology when it comes to communicating things of extraordinary size in the universe.

    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.

    Join Big Think+ for exclusive videos:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    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...

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains the Physics of Size and Life

    15:45

    Have you ever just sat back and thought about life? On this StarTalk explainer, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Chuck Nice investigate the physics of size and life.

    You’ll learn why physics sets the rules, not biology. Neil explains how and why the laws of physics don’t manifest equally at all size scales. We explore the science of A Bug’s Life and what the creators got right about surface tension.

    We discuss how our size as humans impacts what we can and cannot do. You’ll learn why you won’t find tiny creatures with really thick legs. We also discuss why whales can get so big. All that, plus, Neil tells us why Sylvester Stallone isn’t a believable rock climber in the movie Cliffhanger.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains the REAL Length of Day

    16:56

    A day is 24 hours, right? Right?!?! On this StarTalk explainer, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice investigate the length of a day.

    To start, Neil explains why a “sidereal day” is 23 hours, 56 minutes, and 4 seconds and a “solar day” is, on average, 24 hours. You’ll learn why Earth’s orbit around the sun impacts how we measure the length of the day. Should we re-define the length of a second? Discover more about leap seconds and how we decide when to add them to the calendar.

    Find out more about atomic clocks and sun dials. Neil explains why the Earth is slowing down and why the Moon is spiraling away from us. We also discuss how tides serve as a counter-balance to the Earth’s rotation. All that, plus, we explore the many things that can impact Earth’s rotation including seasonal animal migrations, earthquakes, melting land glaciers, and more!

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains Electric Power

    14:20

    How clean is your electric car? In this Earth Day explainer, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comedian co-host Chuck Nice break down the emissions from generating electricity and how electric vehicles really are cleaner.

    Aren’t we burning fossil fuels to get electricity? So are the emissions from your car just transferred elsewhere? We break down coal fire power plants and how much of our power is supplied by fossil fuels. Neil asks, how much does salt cost? We discuss the history of salt as a strategic commodity and how to turn power into salt in the eyes of Americans. How did innovations in food preservations change our view of salt? You’ll learn how this connects to the commodification of oil and how our society is similarly dependent on it for life. Doesn’t a car really just need power? Should we be more or less casual about our electricity usage? What transportation issues do we face with alternative forms of energy? How does our choice to use electricity impact the energy marketplace? All that and more, on another StarTalk explainer!

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains Why Science Is Hard

    19:57

    Neil deGrasse Tyson has spent his whole career trying to convince people that science is worth pursuing and understanding. So, why, in this video, is he saying science is hard? Well, according to Neil, science is hard in a way you might not fully appreciate.

    On this StarTalk explainer, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice are exploring why science can be hard. Neil paints a historical tapestry that explores the discovery of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, to demonstrate the difficulties that can come along during scientific study.

    First, you’ll hear about William Herschel and his discovery of the planet Uranus. Find out why William had to fight against his pre-conceived notions of comets in order to accept his discovery. You’ll learn why the planet was originally named George. Then, we investigate the discovery of Neptune, Pluto, and the almost discoveries of Planet Vulcan and Planet X. Lastly, Neil and Chuck explore why science is a journey, not a destination.

  • 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.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson and NASA Chief Scientist Explain New Mars Rover

    18:43

    Earlier in the day today, @NASA successfully launched their latest Mars rover, Perseverance. Now that it’s rocketing its way to Mars, we’re here to explore what it will do once it gets there. Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice are joined by NASA Chief Scientist James Green, PhD, to break down what Perseverance will be doing once it touches down on the red surface.

    Firstly, why launch now? James tells us why this is the perfect window to launch to Mars. You’ll learn why NASA is targeting to land Perseverance on an ancient Martian shoreline. We discuss why our own evolution history helps inform us where to land the rover.

    Find out the logistics of how Perseverance will land on the Martian surface. Will we experience a similar six minutes of terror like we experienced when Curiosity made its descent? James explains why the landing procedures may sound crazy but they actually make “fantastic sense.”

    You’ll hear about all the different experiments attached to Perseverance including a rock corer, high-tech cameras, and a ground-penetrating radar. Lastly, James tells us about Ingenuity, the tiny helicopter accompanying Perseverance on this mission. All that, plus, find out why James is excited to have a microphone on-board Perseverance.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains Why Stars Twinkle

    20:08

    Thanks to Salesforce for sponsoring a portion of this video.


    Have you ever wondered why stars twinkle? Do you know why astronomers hate twinkling stars? On this StarTalk explainer video, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice are going to give you the answers.

    In order to understand twinkling stars we need to understand how far away the stars are from us. You’ll learn just how big and empty space can be. Neil gives some examples to put the distance between celestial objects into perspective.

    Find out about convection and mirages. Neil explains how the same scientific processes are causing stars to twinkle in the night. We discuss how the starlight is refracting its way through the atmosphere one pocket of air at a time. You’ll learn how astronomers figured out how to compensate for the refraction and how that led to the creation of adaptive optics. All that, plus, you’ll find out why the first star you see tonight might, in fact, be a planet.

  • The Future of Colonizing Space- Neil deGrasse Tyson- WGS 2018

    1:19:52

    Space missions need to have a defensive component or economic benefit. With economic returns often uncertain, space programmes have tended to be led by governments, because only they can invest in programmes that have a long-term pay-off, whether economic or geopolitical. When it comes to saving humanity from an asteroid impact, Tyson stressed that rather than establishing colonies in space, we would be better to try to deflect the asteroid.

    تحدث نيل ديغراس تايسون، عالم الفيزياء الفلكية، أن البعثات الفضائية تُطلق عادةً إما لأغراض دفاعية أو اقتصادية لتبرير غايتها. وفي غياب ضمانات العائد الاقتصادي بالنسبة إلى القطاع الخاص، تتولى الحكومات إدارة جميع برامج الفضاء لما تملكه من قدره على الاستثمار في برامج ذات عائد طويل الأجل، سواء كان لهذا العائد بُعد اقتصادي أو جيوسياسي. أما بالنسبة إلى الدعوة لبناء مستعمرات على سطح الكواكب الأخرى تحسبًا لأي دمار قد يحلّ بكوكب الأرض نتيجة تعرضه لاصطدام نيزك، قال تايسون إن تحويل مسار النيزك يظل هو الحل الأمثل في هذه المرحلة

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains How We See Colors

    16:12

    Is that apple in your hand really red? Or is it another color? Or is it even a color? On this StarTalk explainer video, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice are exploring how we see colors.

    Neil settles the “blue dress vs. gold dress” debate that took the internet by storm a few years back. We reflect on the relationship between scientific advancements and our physiological senses. You’ll learn why things are different colors. We discuss white light.

    Neil explains why, if you’re holding a red apple in your hand, the apple is not actually red. What happens if you take a red apple up to a light that has no red in it? What color would the apple be? All that, plus, we talk about “dark adaptation” and how it impacts the way we see colors in the dark.

  • StarTalk Podcast: Cosmic Queries – Volcanoes, with Neil deGrasse Tyson

    47:42

    Is the super volcano under Yellowstone going to erupt? What’s the difference between lava and magma? Neil deGrasse Tyson, comic co-host Chuck Nice, and volcanologist Janine Krippner, PhD, answer fan-submitted questions about volcanoes.

    How many active volcanoes are in the world right now? Janine tells us about the Smithsonian Institution’s Global Volcanism Program which keeps tabs on all the active volcanoes in the world. Find out how the Ice Age wiped the volcanic record clean. You’ll learn the difference between magma and lava. Janine tells us what’s really going on with the super volcano underneath Yellowstone National Park. You’ll find out why Janine isn’t a fan of the term “super volcano.”

    We take it back to the basics: why do volcanoes explode? We explore why eruptions are important, and, why volcanoes play an important role in our ecosystems. We discuss how volcanoes contribute to climate change – and how they pale in comparison to human activity.

    Discover more about the different types of eruptions. We ponder whether proximity to geological activity enhances people’s desire to study it. Janine shares why robots won’t be taking the jobs of volcanologists any time soon. You’ll hear about lava – if it moves so slowly, how is it so destructive? You’ll also learn about “pyroclastic flow.”

    Lastly, we investigate how many dormant volcanoes have the potential to cause mass devastation on Earth. Janine shares why there’s uncertainty around predicting eruptions. Is society ready for a massive eruption? All that, plus, Janine tells us what volcanoes can teach us about the inside of our planet.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Lecture @ UW 5/12/2011 FULL

    2:23:07

    {Edit 8/27/2019} Due to the number of ignorant people constantly whining about the camera work (which I didn't do), or the introduction (which I was not involved in), or the blatant racism (which is not tolerated) - I have decided to close the comment section. I feel that after 7+ years of constant, ignorant comments, that it is better to simply shut it off. I apologize to those who actually had thoughtful, intelligent exchanges in the comments. But enough is enough.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson gives a wonderful lecture at the University of Washington; covering Astronomy, Sociology, and Scientific development in an entertaining lecture.

    NDT Shows up around 7:49

    Please note that this video is for Educational purposes, and as such is posted under terms of Fair Use. It is important that education passes through on all mediums to those who wish to learn - and thank you, the viewer, for seeking to expand your knowledge.

    Another Note: I was not physically present at this lecture. I am not the camera man. The Camera man did what he could to keep NDT on the camera while also paying attention to the slides. Sometimes he didn't catch the slides. If he focused on the slides only, there would be a crop of complainers that they never showed NDT. So before you add to the complaint list about the Camera Man's work, then either stop watching this video, or upload your own - Complaints do nothing but try to show how smart you were that you have something negative to say.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains the Sun

    Hottest takes in the solar system? Here comes the sun on this explainer, where Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice break down solar flares, sun spots, and all the things you thought you knew about the star at the center of our solar system.

    How big is the sun? We wrap our heads around the scale of our universe and the role of the sun on our planet. If the sun were magically plucked from its spot, how long would it take for us to realize it? What is “solar max”? How to do sunspots work? What about solar flares? Can they break our satellites? We break down the mechanics of the sun’s interior, the merry-go-round effect, and the flipping of the sun's poles. All that, plus, what are deep sea fishes’ experience with the sun?
