Host: Neil de Grasse Tyson
For an hour every week, tune into Neil De Grasse Tyson, host of Cosmos, and his occasional guest hosts Eugene Mirman and Bill Nye as they joke, explain, and debate their way through the newest scientific breakthroughs in everything from astronomy to life on Earth. The show’s got a solid revolving door of Hollywood celebrity guests (Star Trek‘s George Takei, Woody Allen, and Jason Sudekis), scientists, and engineers (NASA head-honcho Charles Bolden, entrepreneur Elon Musk, astronaut Chris Hadfield), and the cast tackles every cool, geeky subject under the sun. For example, what NASA has down on their to-do list for American space exploration, the science and psychology of music, how Star Trek‘s legacy relates to our actual future, and the nuances of the Twitter cultural revolution.
