Neil deGrasse Tyson has taken his hit podcast show, Star Talk Live, on the road. His first stop was at the Neptune Theater in Seattle where Tyson had special guest Wil Wheaton on to talk the science in Star Trek, plus comedic commentary from Kristen Schaal, Paul F. Tompkins, and co-host Eugene Mirman. The crew talked a gambit of subjects from self-opening doors to alien sexual relations. Hit the jump for the video.
Star Talk Live on the Road with Wil Wheaton
Astronomer, entertainer, and proprietor of scientific thinking, the fantastic Neil deGrasse Tyson chatted up Wil Wheaton on the first live showing of Star Talk Live, Tyson’s hit science podcast. Comedic banter is abound in this half hour of greatness. What surprised me most? When Tyson said that, out of all of the space-age tech seen on TOS, the one technology he thought would never be possible: self-opening doors.
