He is best known to the public as the presenter of science programmes, especially the Wonders of... series and for popular science books, such as Why Does E=mc²? and The Quantum Universe.

Why Do Cans of Diet Coke Float and Coke Don't?

In any event, initially, this floating problem seems like something that breaks physics because both cans are the exact same size and contain exactly the same amount of liquid. Of course, anyone who’s ever taken a physics class at some point probably knows what makes a given object float in the first place, in the simplest possible sense, is that an object will float provided it displaces an amount of liquid (or sufficiently dense gas) that weighs more than itself.

Startalk Radio - Exploring Science and Religion with Richard Dawkins

Are science and religion compatible? That’s the question Neil deGrasse Tyson explores with evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins and in-studio guest Rev. James Martin, SJ. Join us as we look at both sides of the issue, from whether rational thought is an evolutionary benefit, to the astronomical contributions of Jesuit scientists at the Vatican Observatory, to the question of contemporary scientists believing in a supernatural power.

James Martin, a firm believer in evolution, asks why scientists who are content with unsolved mysteries like what came before The Big Bang, or those that exist in quantum physics, are any different than people of faith who are content with an incomplete understanding of God or the universe? Dawkins discusses how a scientist’s appetite for wonder and understanding leads science forward, and explains why pre-Darwinian scientists like Isaac Newton saw a designer’s hand in creation. And of course, no discussion of this subject would be complete without addressing Einstein’s repeated use of the word god and Galileo’s persecution by the Catholic Church and their eventual, albeit ridiculously late, pardon.



Plus, Bill Nye rants about rocks and evolution and co-host Eugene Mirman explains why Pope Francis is the first “Fun Pope.”

Startalk Radio - Cosmic Queries: Primate Evolution

Paleoanthropologist Dr. Ian Tattersall of the American Museum of Natural History is back in the studio to help Neil deGrasse Tyson and Eugene Mirman answer fan questions about where primates came from, and where we’re going.

Find out why we’re biologically static, evolutionarily speaking. Learn why we can’t simply “flip a switch” in our genome to breed children with wings. Explore the impact of technology on evolution and of space exploration on speciation. You’ll get answers to questions like, “If humans evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?” and “Are we interfering with evolution by keeping the weak alive?”

Neil, Eugene and Ian discuss selective breeding vs. evolution, whether different species of ape can interbreed, the difference between human hands and ape hands, and whether other primates use spears and slings. All this plus the competition between Neanderthal and Homo Sapiens, primates in space and science fiction, legislation and primate rights, and what species Eugene Mirman evolved from.
