Watch: An Astrophysicist Explode Live On Stage

Arizona State University, I salute you for hosting a science debate as electrifying as a rock concert.  ASU’s recent Storytelling of Science event unleashed on stage some of the biggest names from the world of science. The idea was simple — to discuss important scientific ideas with the public and whip them into a frenzy of excitement.  We join the event just when the subject of politics and space exploration came up. Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson promised not to dominate the conversation, but it didn’t quite work out that way. Jerry Springer would be proud.
