“If the world ends it's because people in power didn't listen to the warnings of physicists,” Neil deGrasse Tyson said. Neil is the world’s window into physics. And he just came out with a new book “Accessory to War: The Unspoken Alliance Between Astrophysics and the Military.” He told me how physicists think. And this kind of thinking can be used to make you a better communicator, help you to avoid conflict, make smart decisions, but he also told me odd stories. Like how Columbus used astrophysics to exploit power, why E = mc2 gave us atomic bombs, who the first trillionaire will be, why physics stops Neil from having normal fights with his wife and more. If you don’t think you "get" science, you’ll be a new person after this podcast.
