For over a decade, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has hosted the podcast and television series StarTalk, sitting down with scientists and entertainers to discuss confounding mysteries of earth, space, and what it means to be human. Collecting highlights from both programs, this illustrated edition for young adults addresses dozens of pressing questions about our world, from how the brain works to how we might survive in space. It's not all rocket science though, and so Tyson also considers whether Bigfoot is an alien or if Superman could survive in a black hole, explains why flying cars haven't been invented yet, and settles the conundrum "If we evolved from monkeys, then why are monkeys still here?"
