Astrophysicist and director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, Neil deGrasse Tyson joins Cheddar to break down myths surrounding the upcoming U.S. solar eclipse, which will move coast to coast on August 21, and how the phenomenon is not as rare as recent reporting might lead you to think. He also talks about the Kickstarter campaign for his upcoming video game “Space Odyssey.” Tyson discusses how donors are able to build the game with him through suggestions on the Kickstarter page, comparing it to “Pandora,” the world in the hit film “Avatar”. Tyson breaks down the ins and outs of the game, noting how users will be able to colonize their own planets and even colonize the planets of other users, which could create conflict in space. Tyson says that with “Space Odyssey,” he wants the game to be fun and informative and for users to feel closer to understanding the world of nature after playing. He then gives us his insights on the future of space travel under President Trump’s revival of the National Space Council.
