Source: Vimeo

Neil deGrasse Tyson joins us to discuss the origins of the universe and talk about the latest discoveries in physics. What do phrases like “dark matter” and “dark energy” mean? How do atoms form? What will happen in the distant future, as the universe expands faster and faster? Tyson tells host Salima Hamirani that we are living in an exciting time when scientist are on the verge of some very serious discoveries, and that understanding the universe has big implications for who we are as a species.
