StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson book

StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson
Everything You Ever Need to Know About Space Travel, Sci-Fi, the Human Race, the Universe, and Beyond
Hardcover
By Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jeffrey Simons, Charles Liu
Publisher: National Geographic Books
Released date: September 13, 2016

Scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson segued his radio show last year into a TV series on the National Geographic Channel called StarTalk, where each week he’d talk with celebrities about scientific topics, and now, there’s a new companion book called StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Boldly subtitled Everything You Ever Need to Know About Space Travel, Sci-Fi, the Human Race, the Universe, and Beyond, this 304-page full-cover hardcover hits on four major themes — Space, Planet Earth, Being Human, and Futures Imagined.

Star Trek: The Official Guide to the Universe
The True Science Behind the Starship Voyages

William Shatner, who made a name for himself as the original Captain James T. Kirk on the 1960s television series, provides the Foreword to this 240-page hardcover by Andrew Fazekas, which is subtitled The True Science Behind the Starship Voyages.
