In this special episode of The Accutron Show, our hosts talk about space with one of the most famous astrophysicists in the world, Neil deGrasse Tyson. What does the future look like for space exploration programs? What's the truth about UFOs? And most importantly, what happened to Pluto? Neil talks about his new book Welcome To The Universe, in which he deep dives into some of the most puzzling questions about the universe. Tune in and journey into space with Accutron.
7:00 We are still looking for other life forms. There are mainly two branches of exploration. Search for life at all, with rovers on Mars, the study of icy moons, etc. The other branch focuses on the search for extraterrestrial intelligence.
23:34 In the past 25 years a lot has happened in my life. I didn't seek fame or popularity. When I told people I was an astrophysicist, they used to ask me all these questions and I liked to monitor their reaction to the things I was relating to them.
35:00 A new book has come out, a collaboration with two Princeton colleagues of mine, a pocket textbook that contains all of the things you want to know about space: Earth, time travel, multiverses, and much more.
