About This Episode

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 host Neil deGrasse Tyson interviews his buddy, astronaut Mike Massimino. Astro 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. Learn about the history of Hubble, as well as the future of the James Webb Space Telescope. From astronaut diapers, to the dangers of pop rocks, to the importance of Lagrangian points, we explore how spacewalking above the Earth can be an extraordinary combination of comedy and cosmic discovery.

  • Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let
    you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

      Thanks, KH. We’re checking into the problem.

  • Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple tweeks
    would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design.

      If you’re not spam, Jere, then email me at jeff@startalkradio and I can give you more info.

  • May I just say what a comfort to discover someone who actually understands what they’re talking about on the web. You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people have to look at this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more
    popular given that you most certainly possess the gift.

    The comedians added very little in this one – rather they detracted – too much salt
