Season 3, Episode 1
StarTalk Radio returned to the Bell House in Brooklyn, New York on December 18, 2011 for our second show in front of a live audience. Co-host Eugene Mirman was joined by fellow comedians Kristen Schaal and John Hodgman, while Neil brought along his NASA astronaut buddy, Mike Massimino.
Mike talks about his two Space Shuttle missions to fix the Hubble Space Telescope, and Neil describes how Hubble changed our view of the universe. From astronaut diapers to the dangers of pop rocks, we explore how spacewalking above the Earth can be an extraordinary combination of comedy and cosmic discovery.
