This Week's New Podcast
StarTalk Live at Town Hall with Buzz Aldrin (Part 1)
September 15, 2013, 7:00pm ET/4:00pm PT

Town Hall Live Part 1  

For StarTalk’s first mission to Town Hall in NYC, Commander Neil deGrasse Tyson and Co-Pilot Eugene Mirman recruited a crack crew: astronaut Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, Andrew Chaikin, author of A Man on the Moon, and, in the spirit of international cooperation, a little known British comedian named John Oliver. The team explored why we went to the moon, what it was like once we got there, and why conspiracy theorists who say we never actually went are full of… dust. The most surprising discovery of the evening was that the guy who got the most laughs that night wasn’t Eugene or John, but Buzz Aldrin himself. Listen to Part 1 on our website Sunday, September 15 at 7:00pm ET and on iTunes, SoundCloud and Stitcher by 7:30pm ET.

Cosmic Queries: Sun and Other Stars  

The Sun is the star as astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice answer fan questions in this solar edition of Cosmic Queries. Learn how a gas cloud condensed to form our Sun, and how we can keep it from expanding and burning out. Find out what Immanuel Kant’s Nebular Hypothesis is, what electron degeneracy pressure does, how neutron stars form, whether dust clouds around stars cause electrical storms, and if the Sun will die before we collide with the Andromeda galaxy. It’s filled with rogue stars, thermonuclear fusion, emotionally conflicted planets, pigeons and Mexican food. Listen now.

Revisiting Our Special Episode about 9/11
Posted September 11, 2013 

Tribute in Light  

“…I lived three and a half blocks from what would later be known as Ground Zero. I was home that morning, and the entire series of events unfolded outside my dining room window… I don’t want to retell that now. What I’d rather try to do is measure the magnitude of the events of that morning…”  Twelve years ago, Neil deGrasse Tyson witnessed the events of 9/11 at close range. Two years ago, on the tenth anniversary, StarTalk Radio produced a special episode about that day, 9/11 Memorial. If you haven’t heard the episode yet, and with so many new fans that’s likely, I recommend you listen now... Read more.

Neil deGrasse Tyson Explores the Vacuum of Space

Watch Neil deGrasse Tyson fill the informational void as he answers this Cosmic Query with Eugene Mirman, then rethinks and clarifies that answer. Watch now.
