About This Episode
Can we go to warp speed? Neil deGrasse Tyson and comedian Chuck Nice answer a grab bag of fan questions about the expansion of the universe, warp speed, Neptune, & 4D Life.
What is the question that Neil wishes people would ask him? Learn about the discovery of Uranus and how Newton’s Laws helped discover Neptune. What is the future of the culinary arts on other planets? Would we need a different cookbook for the moon and Mars?
Is warp drive for interstellar travel possible? Learn how warpspeed would work, wormholes, and the limits we put on ourselves. Do we have a unit of speed in which we travel through time? How do you deal with science deniers?
How does space continue to grow? Can we slow it down? Find out why Neil loses sleep over dark energy. Could there be life in the second and first dimensions? Or is life in higher dimensions looking at us? Would a pillow be fluffy in space? Do photons have mass? All that, plus, Chuck has some special news for StarTalk fans…
