Neil deGrasse Tyson is an astrophysicist, planetary scientist, author and science communicator.

Elon Musk bought Twitter and I found out about a 300 million light year across supervoid out in space within the same week. Thankfully Neil is here to help me work out what is going on in this version of the simulation.

Expect to learn whether focussing on Mars as a backup planet is a smart idea, how big the universe is outside of the observable universe, how we could restart the sun when it begins to die, when time will end, the politics of who gets to claim different asteroids, Neil's favourite solution to the Fermi Paradox and much more...
