About This Episode

“Is Dark Matter explained by Modified Newtonian Dynamics?” “Is there a way to harness lightning energy to create an efficient lightning farm?” “If the greenhouse effect traps energy, how does visible light from the Sun reach us?” “Could we move a planet to the Goldilocks Zone” to allow for colonization?” “Why does the Earth spin in the direction that it does?” Your questions come fast and furious in this episode of Cosmic Queries. Luckily, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Leighann Lord have the answers you’re looking for. You’ll hear what Neil thinks was the greatest wrong idea ever, his take on parallel universes and the multiverse, and who was our most science friendly president. Plus, you’ll find out what happens when you let a physicist name your child and learn the answer to the question, “Is it true that Neil once wore leg warmers?”
