StarTalk: Science is Fierce

Like science, fashion is always evolving, each new idea potentially changing our lives from drab to fabulous.

Fashion can project a glamorous image, or—in the case of astronaut spacesuits and NASA-designed swimwear—push us to exceed our hum-drum human limits. Neil and co-host Lynne Koplitz become wrapped up in cutting-edge fashion concepts like self-heating clothing, aromatic fabrics and dissolving dresses. James Aguiar judges the influence of sci-fi classics like Star Trek on future trends and styles, and reveals the surprising sources for fashion’s inspiration.



Science, pop culture & comedy collide on StarTalk w/ astrophysicist & Hayden Planetarium director Neil deGrasse Tyson, comic co-hosts, celebrities & scientists.
