Do you remember when all mainstream news networks had a science correspondent? A fan does, and she wants to know where the coverage of advancements in science has gone. Guest host Bill Nye offers up some alternative sources, but co-host Eugene Mirman and guest astronaut Mike Massimino aren’t letting the networks off the hook that easily.
When a fan asks how we can solve the looming question of energy storage, engineer and guest host Bill Nye explains the science involved in liquid metal batteries… and, with an evil laugh, the potential profit involved for any company that makes them. Bill tells co-host Eugene Mirman and guest Mike Massimino how the batteries, which use magnesium, salastro t and antimony, can be placed in buildings and store renewable wind and solar energy during the day for later use, revolutionizing society and improving the quality of life for everybody.
Guest host Bill Nye the Science Guy has a question of his own for astronaut Mike Massimino: “Do you guys really drink Tang?” The answer isn’t so simple, thanks to NASA rules, regulations and restrictions, but it makes for a surprisingly “generic” Star Talk Radio “Behind the Scenes” video. As co-host Eugene Mirman says, “There’s no branding in space.” Candy covered chocolates, anyone?
Shaman Hamilton Souther has been healing with plant medicines for more than a decade. Once on the path to become a professional golfer, Hamilton felt a calling to the Amazon in 2001 to work with the sacred medicine ayahuasca. Hamilton has guided thousands of participants into shamanic states of consciousness and says he has been able to heal westerners of depression, anxiety, drug addiction and PTSD. Now, Hamilton is combining shamanism with cannabis and the Internet to make this style of healing more accessible and also help people find their deepest purposes and goals in life.
A fan wants to know if there are any theoretical limits on the size of a star, but there’s no way he could have anticipated just how theoretical comic co-host Eugene Mirman would get with Bill Nye’s answer involving black holes and gravity.
