StarTalk with Jim Gaffigan, Sarah Silverman, Eugene Mirman, Dr David Grinspoon, and Neil deGrasse Tyson

StarTalk Live! Satisfying our Curiosity about Mars

StarTalk Live descended on The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY on 9/14/12 to celebrate the landing of the Curiosity Rover on Mars and the exploration of our solar system. Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Eugene Mirman were joined by Dr. David Grinspoon, a co-investigator on the Radiation Assessment Detector, one of the experiments on the Mars Science Laboratory, and comedians Sarah Silverman and Jim Gaffigan (Mr. Universe). Part 1 of the show is focused on exploring the Red Planet. You’ll find out why Curiosity needed a nuclear power source… what an Alpha Proton X-Ray Spectrometer does… what Mars has in common with Earth… what stratigraphy is… what gives Eugene Mirman joy… how scientists fall in love… and the real origin of the giant face on Mars.

We watched the YouTube video as pictured above.
