At past StarTalk Live shows, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Eugene Mirman have been joined on the stage by an illustrious cast of moonwalkers, physicists, musicians, actors and comedians. But now you have a chance to make StarTalk Live history and be the first StarTalk Radio fan to ask Neil a question from the audience and then meet Neil backstage after the show at Town Hall in NYC on November 4th.

And how will we decide which audience member gets a once-in-a-lifetime meet and greet with everyone’s own personal astrophysicist? Actually, your fate is in your own hands.

All you have to do is submit the question you’d like to ask Neil, in advance, right here in the comments section of this blog post, and, of course, be in the audience at Town Hall on November 4th. You can ask a Cosmic Query about any scientific topic you want. The more unique, clever, creative and thought provoking the better – but please, keep them relatively short if you want our producers to consider you.

Make sure you include a working email in your question/comment, so our producers can reach you in advance to go over the details.

Just to be crystal clear, post your question for Neil in the comments to this blog post, not by using the “Ask a Question” tab.

Seats are still available for the show. You can buy tickets here.

Speaking of StarTalk Live, if you haven’t seen this video of Neil mixing his signature Drink of the Night” at our last StarTalk Live at The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY, enjoy:

That’s it for now. Keep Looking Up.
