Visit Pioneer Works on September 12 for a special episode of StarTalk Live to celebrate the release of To Infinity and Beyond: A Journey of Cosmic Discovery, a new book written by Neil and StarTalk senior producer Lindsey Nyx Walker. As we dive into the science of this book, Neil and guests take us on a journey through space and time, starting with the Big Bang and voyaging to the far reaches of the universe and beyond. Along the way, science greets pop culture as Tyson explains the triumphs—and bloopers—in Hollywood’s blockbusters: all part of an entertaining ride through the cosmos.
Stargazing with Amateur Astronomers Association to follow, weather permitting.
As we move away from Earth, new truths are shared about our planet’s atmosphere, the nature of sunlight, and the many missions that have demystified our galactic neighbors. But the farther out we travel, the weirder things get. What’s a void and what’s a vacuum? How can light be a wave and a particle at the same time? When finally arriving in the blackness of outer space, Tyson and guests take on the spookiest phenomena of the cosmos: parallel worlds, black holes, time travel, and more. If you are a science junky and a fan of the conundrums that astrophysicists often ponder, join StarTalk Live for an enlightening adventure into the farthest reaches of the cosmos.
