About This Episode

Kick your feet back and get ready to hang with some All-Stars. This week’s episode of StarTalk All-Stars was recorded live at our “Leap Into Launch” Party for StarTalk All-Stars, and features astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, comic co-host Chuck Nice, astronaut and All-Stars host Mike Massimino, and astrobiologist and All-Stars host Dr. David Grinspoon cutting loose with some science and comedy. Explore Ninkasi Brewing Company’s imperial stout beer, “Ground Control,” that’s brewed using yeast grown in space. Get down to the smooth, sharp guitar of Dr. FunkySpoon as he performs his original song “Astrobiologist’s Blues” for the group. Learn how Neil’s Venus pizza-cooking calculations were corrected by a physicist-turned-chef. You’ll hear about the Apollo missions and the story of how Neil Armstrong came up with his famous first words on the lunar surface. Over their beers, the guys try to nail down what constitutes being in “outer space.” All this, plus, discover the “origin stories” of our own science superheroes Neil, Mike, and David as they reminisce on what inspired them to pursue fields of study that connected them with the universe.
