About This Episode

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is frequently one of the more outspoken – and scientifically literate – guests on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher. So what happens when the controversial Maher stops by StarTalk Radio? A rational discussion about some of today’s most important issues. Along with co-host Astrobiologist Dr. David Grinspoon, Neil and Bill talk about climate change, squeezing into Bill’s electric car (a Tesla roadster), the value of space exploration, and whether it is possible to reconcile religion and science. You’ll also learn a few things about Carl Sagan you didn’t know – including speculation about why Harvard denied him tenure – from David, who grew up calling Sagan “Uncle Carl”, and Bill, who took Sagan’s astronomy course at Cornell.
