The StarTalk network bridges the intersection between science, pop culture, and comedy with clarity, humor, and passion. Through our various shows, we explore captivating subjects such as space travel, extra-terrestrial life, the Big Bang, the role science plays in people’s lives, the future of Earth and the environment, the science behind the most iconic sports plays in history, and breaking news from the universe. Or, as our host Neil deGrasse Tyson says, Everything under the sun; Or rather under the universe! for an audience of “All the people who never knew how much they’d love learning about space and science.” Tyson and our other show hosts are joined each week by comedian co-hosts, celebrities, and other special guests.

The Emmy®-nominated series aires on the National Geographic Channel and is the first late-night talk show focused on science.
