WATCH: Bourdain Talks Science & Food With Famed Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson

How did this happen? How did Anthony Bourdain get in the same room as Neil DeGrasse Tyson, America’s favorite astrophysicist, for an episode of Nerdist’s Star Talk? How did the director of the Hayden Planetarium end up conducting one of the most fascinating interviews of Bourdain in the public record? (Aside from ours, of course.) Did it all have to do with the fact that they talked about nutritional science and the intricacies of diets around the world and astronaut food? Or perhaps it’s that Tyson refused to bait Tony with questions about why he hates the Travel Channel? What are Eugene Mirman and Marion Nestle doing there? Will Degrasse Tyson like Bourdain so much that he’ll invite the “travel chef” onto the remake of the seminal television series, Cosmos? (If there is only one sentence in this post, it shall be this: Please, please, please invite Bourdain onto Cosmos.)

Have a tip we should know?
