    Neil deGrasse Tyson joined us to answer our biggest questions on climate change, God, AI and more. Order your copy of Letters from an Astrophysicist now:

    Neil deGrasse Tyson is arguably the most influential, acclaimed scientist on the planet. As director of the Hayden Planetarium, and host of Cosmos and StarTalk, he has dedicated his life to exploring and explaining the mysteries of the universe.

    Every year, he receives thousands of letters – from students to prisoners, scientists to priests. Some seek advice, others yearn for inspiration; some are full of despair, others burst with wonder. But they are all searching for understanding, meaning and truth.

    His replies are by turns wise, funny, and mind-blowing. In this, his most personal book by far, he covers everything from God to the history of science, from aliens to death. He bares his soul – his passions, his doubts, his hopes. The big theme is everywhere in these pages: what is our place in the universe?

    The result is an awe-inspiring read and an intimate portal into an incredible mind, which reveals the power of the universe to start conversations and inspire curiosity in all of us.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    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 Alien Visits, UFOs, and Other Conspiracies

    19:20

    Are alien spacecrafts here on earth? In this explainer video, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice discuss the existence of aliens on earth and what the scientific community thinks of it.

    Do conspiracy theories like UFOs hold any truth or validity? Or is this obsession with aliens just fueled by the movies? Find out what T-Rex, blackholes, and the brothers Grimm have in common. We also debate whether imaginings of evil aliens are just based on how we humans treat each other. Are the people being visited by aliens always the ones in danger?

    What do aliens look like? Learn why we often portray aliens as being vertebrate. Would advanced aliens capable of space travel even care about us? You’ll learn how alien sightings have changed over the years with the innovations in photographic technology. We explore the leaps many people take when they discover things in the night sky. Are human senses even trustworthy without further evidence? Is the government competent enough to keep this a secret? All that and more on another StarTalk explainer!

  • The Multiverse with Joe Rogan

    10:58

    After Neil's interview on The Joe Rogan Experience (@PowerfulJRE), the microphones kept recording. Joe gets the chance to ask Neil deGrasse Tyson any question that’s been brewing in his brain about our place in the cosmos. This leads our pair on an epic journey of cosmic curiosity that explores the concept of the multiverse and alternative laws of physics. We discuss independent universes inside of a noncausal multiverse. We ponder the nature of other universes that could have a different base structure of elements. Neil tells us how our human make-up is deeply connected to the make-up of the universe. Lastly, we debate the definition of consciousness. All that, plus, we ask: if you exist in an infinite number of universes, does that make you immortal?

  • Food in Space with Neil deGrasse Tyson, Alton Brown, and Guests

    1:38:50

    Note: This live show was filmed prior to the COVID 19 pandemic. All content recorded since then has been up to safety standards with social distancing, mask mandates, and vaccination in mind. We look forward to doing our part to make sure that we can make events like this one happen safely again soon.

    How good is food in space? On this episode, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Jordan Klepper feast on food science and the challenges we face sending food to space with chef Alton Brown, food chemist Dr. Arielle Johnson and NASA food scientist Dr. Grace Douglas.

    Can you become a better cook through science? Find out about the creative field of flavor science and what molecular gastronomy is. How can we still make good food with constraints? Discover how one of the top restaurants in the world, Noma, uses ants to replace lemons. What is retro-nasal olfaction? What happens when we taste something? Can you invent a new smell or flavor that’s never been experienced before? Can we take our palates to the limit?

    We explore the Advanced Food Technology project at NASA: How do you create food for space? You’ll learn how they find the perfect balance between safety, nutrition, and flavor for the astronauts. Can they just grow space potatoes like in The Martian? Do astronauts lose their sense of taste? Is there a food space race? How important is variety in their food? What is the feedback like from the astronauts? How many options do they get for dinner? If we had to choose one food to live on, what would we choose? We discuss the ritualism around food preparation, closed loop systems, and how food helps us feel at home. How close are we to growing our own food in space? Is the future of space exploration vegetarian?

    Where is food science heading in the face of climate change? Can fixes to Mars’ problems have applications for us on Earth? Do we need to diversify our palates? We break down the impact of climate change on growing patterns, food availability, and bees. Could we have bees in the ISS? Are there chemical solutions to these problems? We try to answer the question: How do we do the same thing with fewer resources? All of that, plus, find out about NASA initiatives to solve these problems and what the future of space food looks like.

    Thanks to our Patrons Jeni Morrow, Hyrule Ok, blufor, Timothy Dalby, John Turnham, SkellyIRL, and Chuck H for supporting us this week.

  • 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

  • Hear Buzz Aldrin tell the story of the first Moon landing

    10:11

    Buzz Aldrin was the second man to set foot on the Moon. In February 2016 Aldrin came to the Science Museum in London to tell the story of the historic mission in his own words.

    On 16 July 1969, Apollo 11 launched from Cape Kennedy on its way to becoming the first manned spacecraft to land on the moon. Aboard were Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin - the three brave men who made the historic journey. On 20 July, Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the Moon and Aldrin joined him on the lunar surface soon after. The Moon walk lasted nearly two-and-a-half hours while the pair collected lunar samples and conducted experiments.

  • 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.

  • StarTalk Podcast: Celebrating Neil Armstrong & Apollo 11, with Neil deGrasse Tyson

    51:50

    On this episode of StarTalk Radio, Neil deGrasse Tyson, comic co-host Chuck Nice and Astro Mike Massimino, two-time space shuttle veteran and Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Columbia University, sit down together to celebrate the life and legacy of Neil Armstrong in conjunction with the release of the brand-new film First Man. The film follows Neil (portrayed by Ryan Gosling) and his career leading up to the Moon landing. Whether he’s pushing altitude limits in an X-15, testing docking mechanics in a Gemini capsule above the Earth, or landing on the Moon with only drops of fuel remaining – he’s as cool as ice. Neil and Mike discuss the film and whether or not it accurately portrays Armstrong as he was in real life. You’ll hear from Armstrong himself as Neil caught up with the real-life first man on the Moon at the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission Tyson hosted in 2009 at The National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. You’ll also hear from Gene Kranz, who was also at the event, who tells Neil what it was like to be a part of the mission from the ground. Explore why, even though Armstrong was quiet and weary of the spotlight, everyone agreed he was the right man for the job. Mike shares his experience meeting Armstrong while he was an astronaut in training. Neil also describes the first time he met Armstrong – on a cruise to Mauritania to view a solar eclipse, for which the 14-year-old Tyson had won a scholarship through the Explorers Club. Mike explains how Armstrong’s first words on the Moon influenced him when he sent the first tweet ever tweeted from space. You’ll hear why the Moon landing was so stressful for everyone on the ground, and Mike explains the honesty that comes with discussing the chances of having unsuccessful missions. You’ll also learn more about the Omega watches that were used on Apollo 11 and how NASA decided which watch brand to choose. All that, plus, Neil reflects upon the Apollo 11 mission and how it was perceived not as an American event, but a world event, inspiring millions and millions of people across the globe.

    Originally aired as a podcast on October 19, 2018.

    Stephen Colbert took over as host of The Late Show on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015. Colbert is best known for his work as a television host, writer, actor, and producer, and best known for his charity work teaching English as a second language on Tunisian date farms. Prior to joining the CBS family -- and being officially adopted by network president Les Moonves -- Colbert helmed “The Colbert Report,” which aired nearly 1,500 episodes and required Stephen to wear nearly 1,500 different neckties. The program received two Peabody Awards, two Grammy Awards, and several unwelcome shoulder massages. It won two Emmys for Outstanding Variety Series in 2013 and 2014, both of which appear to have been lost in the move. Colbert is pronounced koʊlˈbɛər, according to Wikipedia. His understudy is William Cavanaugh, who will be hosting The Late Show approximately one third of the time. Good luck, Bill!

    3 scientists school flat Earthers on the evidence
    Watch the newest video from Big Think:
    Learn skills from the world's top minds at Big Think Edge:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Despite centuries of evidence proving otherwise, there is an alarming number of people around the world who genuinely believe that the earth is flat. Bill Nye The Science Guy, NASA astronomer Michelle Thaller, and Neil deGrasse Tyson strongly disagree.

    From simple experiments like standing at a seashore or looking through a telescope at other planets, to reading about navigation or viewing photos of Earth taken from space, the scientists share several ways that flat Earthers can see the truth for themselves.

    Tyson explains why this trend doesn't qualify as a scientific debate and why it is actually dangerous for people to believe and, even worse, pass on these objectively false ideas.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    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.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BILL NYE:

    Bill Nye, scientist, engineer, comedian, author, and inventor, is a man with a mission: to help foster a scientifically literate society, to help people everywhere understand and appreciate the science that makes our world work. Making science entertaining and accessible is something Bill has been doing most of his life.

    In Seattle Nye began to combine his love of science with his flair for comedy, when he won the Steve Martin look-alike contest and developed dual careers as an engineer by day and a stand-up comic by night. Nye then quit his day engineering day job and made the transition to a night job as a comedy writer and performer on Seattle’s home-grown ensemble comedy show “Almost Live.” This is where “Bill Nye the Science Guy®” was born. The show appeared before Saturday Night Live and later on Comedy Central, originating at KING-TV, Seattle’s NBC affiliate.

    Nye is the host of three currently-running television series. “The 100 Greatest Discoveries” airs on the Science Channel. “The Eyes of Nye” airs on PBS stations across the country.
    Bill’s latest project is hosting a show on Planet Green called “Stuff Happens.” It’s about environmentally responsible choices that consumers can make as they go about their day and their shopping. Also, you’ll see Nye in his good-natured rivalry with his neighbor Ed Begley. They compete to see who can save the most energy and produce the smallest carbon footprint. Nye has 4,000 watts of solar power and a solar-boosted hot water system. There’s also the low water use garden and underground watering system. It’s fun for him; he’s an engineer with an energy conservation hobby.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    MICHELLE THALLER:

    Dr. Michelle Thaller is an astronomer who studies binary stars and the life cycles of stars. She is Assistant Director of Science Communication at NASA. She went to college at Harvard University, completed a post-doctoral research fellowship at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, Calif. then started working for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's (JPL) Spitzer Space Telescope. After a hugely successful mission, she moved on to NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), in the Washington D.C. area. In her off-hours often puts on about 30lbs of Elizabethan garb and performs intricate Renaissance dances. For more information, visit
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    TRANSCRIPT:

    BILL NYE: Is the earth flat or round? It's round, okay. Now, let's see. How do we go about proving that?

    MICHELLE THALLER: That's a hard thing for me to even start talking about because there are so many proofs that the earth is round it's difficult...

    2:57

    Hint: It’s not a planet. Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson thinks we should “follow the water” to Jupiter’s moon, Europa, or explore the atmosphere on Saturn’s moon, Titan. In this video from Business Insider and StarTalk Radio, you’ll find out why Neil thinks Europa’s ancient sub-surface ocean or Titan’s liquid methane lakes and rivers could harbor life, even if it’s nothing like we’re used to here on Earth.

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains Why Craters Are Round

    14:27

    Why are craters round? Even when asteroids hit surfaces at different angles and speeds, all craters end up round. Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice are ready to investigate.

    To start, Neil tells us why the original scientific thinking behind the shape of craters had to do with volcanoes. You’ll find out why the invention of computers, and the use of simulation, allowed us to advance the science forward.

    Discover more about “high-speed collisions” and why kinetic energy has an important role to play when it comes to crater shape. Neil also tells us why the same thing that happens to craters happens to snowballs when you throw them against a wall. All that, plus, does the atmosphere have anything to do with the shape of craters?

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson Answers Elon Musks Top Interview Question

    1:40

    You might think you're clever, but could you answer the brainteaser interview question that Elon Musk has used to screen potential employees? Renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson can.

    » Subscribe to CNBC Make It.:

    According to a 2015 biography by Ashlee Vance, many of SpaceX's early employees were personally interviewed by Musk and likely answered his favorite riddle:

    You're standing on the surface of the Earth. You walk one mile south, one mile west and one mile north. You end up exactly where you started. Where are you?

    We then brought the brainteaser to Tyson.

    The astrophysicist, of course, gave us the correct answer: The North Pole. Starting there, if you walk one mile south, one mile west and one mile north, you'll make a triangular path and end up back at the North Pole, your point of origin.

    Most SpaceX engineers also give the North Pole version of this answer. However, there are many other ways to approach this brainteaser.

    Another answer that Musk reportedly accepts has a person starting near the South Pole and walking a mile to where the earth has a one mile circumference. One can then trace that circle's path and return one mile north to the starting point.

    In fact, there are actually an infinite number of such points, said Rachel Rosen, an assistant professor of theoretical physics at Columbia University.

    While Tyson wasn't baffled by Musk's brainteaser in the least, he admitted that those who aren't familiar with the geometry of a non-flat world, also known as non-Euclidean geometry, would likely be perplexed.

    There is a sphere of knowledge for which that question is trivial, explained Tyson. If you do not have that sphere of knowledge, then it's an intriguing problem … and you should ask it.

    Musk, Vance wrote, is less concerned with the actual answer than how potential candidates tackle it. Musk reportedly interviewed a range of employees in SpaceX's early days, including engineers, technicians and janitors.

    Wrote Vance, Musk tends to care less about whether the person gets the answer than about how they approach the problem.

    Tyson added jokingly, Santa clearly knows [the answer] ... Have you interviewed Santa?
