The idea that there may be multiple universes, teaching religion in science class and the unsolved mysteries of the cosmos are explored in part two of Bill’s interview with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Below are highlight clips from their full conversation this week.

Why There May Be Countless Universes
In this clip, Tyson tells us why it logically makes sense for there to be more than one universe (a multiverse in fact).


Why Don’t I Feel the Universe Moving?
Here’s why it’s challenging to comprehend what’s happening in our skies and beyond while here on Earth.


On the Big Bang
While the Big Bang is described by some as a cosmic hydrogen bomb, Tyson says that description probably “cheapens the event.”


On Religion in Science Class
For Tyson, the place for faith in science class is clear.


On the God of the Gaps
To the person who invokes God whenever there is an unsolved mystery in the universe, Tyson says “get ready to have that undone.”
