When we first came up with the idea for Cosmic Queries way back in 2012, during Season 3, we had no way of knowing how much you, our fans, would love them.

We should have known, though. One of the constant threads in the history of StarTalk has been your desire to have your burning questions answered by your own personal astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson.

And not just by Neil. We’ve asked you for questions for our guest Cosmic Queries hosts, too, from Bill Nye to Dr. David Grinspoon to Dr. Amy Mainzer. And you responded with the same enthusiasm you did for Neil.

We couldn’t have Cosmic Queries without you, so it is fitting that we consider your desires when we choose which Cosmic Queries episodes end up in our Time Capsules. Your top 5 favorites are all here:

  1. Cosmic Queries: Colonizing Mars
  2. Cosmic Queries: Bill Nye Edition
  3. Cosmic Queries: Rocket Science Is Hard
  4. Cosmic Queries: Star Trek
  5. Cosmic Queries: Super Powers

But we’ve also thrown in some of our staff’s favorites, too:

Cosmic Queries – The Science of Love

Cosmic Queries: GMOs with Bill Nye (Part 1)

Cosmic Queries: GMOs with Bill Nye (Part 2)

Cosmic Queries: Monsters with Bill Nye

This is the last episode of StarTalk Radio for Season 6, our most popular season ever. Which is also something that couldn’t happen without you.

We hope that you’ll join us next week, on March 4th, for the premiere of Season 7.

Oh, and one more thing. We’re going to have a very big surprise for you next week. I can’t tell you what it is now, but look for our blog post Saturday for ways that you can be part of our big, exciting news.

That’s it for now. Keep Looking Up!
