StarTalk x The Film Theorists: Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains the Science of Rick and Morty

#startalk radio #astronomy #astrophysics #film theorists #Science & Technology
Wubba lubba dub dub! On this very special video of StarTalk Radio we’re teaming up with The Film Theorists to explore the science of Rick and Morty! Neil deGrasse Tyson is joined by comic co-host Chuck Nice and MatPat of The Film Theorists to dive into some iconic science portrayed on one of the most popular animated shows in recent years..
Discover more about dark matter. Rick uses dark matter to power his spaceship but MatPat wants to know if that’s actually scientifically possible. Neil tells us why the show might say dark matter but actually mean dark energy. You’ll learn more about the differences between the two and why dark energy would be more capable of being used over dark matter..
We also dive into antimatter. On Season 2, Episode 2, Rick and Morty of have to destroy a gaseous being named Fart and they do so by using an antimatter gun. So, what exactly is antimatter? Neil explains why antimatter is the “favorite fuel of science fiction” and just how antimatter works in real life..
All that, plus, we explore the multiverse of Rick and Morty with The Film Theorists right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHcaQ...

Thank you both for answering my questions and not being afraid to get a little wacky with the science today -- glad to find some equally-nerdy Rick and Morty fans :)

Also, CONGRATULATIONS on crossing 1 million! That little piece of space rock is now YOURS!

You were LITERALLY in an episode of an educational cartoon, quoting Einstein: "Imagination is greater than knowledge."
