Star Talk Radio!

Last week I co-hosted Star Talk Radio with Neil DeGrasse Tyson and we talked about the physics of superheros. Though we never figured out the power behind Green Lantern’s will-powered-ring, we did discover that Daredevil is slightly plausible and that Mr. Fantastic is very un-realistic (and not just because it’s not likely for someone to be very smart, but because of how much he stretches). Here’s a link to the hour-long program.

    This was one of the best episodes of StarTalk I’ve ever heard. You two are great together!

    Just an FYI, “superheros” is actually “superheroes.” Remember when Dan Quayle was pounded for putting an “e” at the end of potato? You don’t do that, unless you then follow up with an s. He could have saved himself at the last second, but apparently his improv skills are lacking – as was his ability to secure a presidential nomination.
