Wubba lubba dub dub! On this very special video of StarTalk Radio we’re teaming up with @The Film Theorists to explore the science of Rick and Morty! Neil deGrasse Tyson is joined by comic co-host Chuck Nice and MatPat of The Film Theorists to dive into some iconic science portrayed on one of the most popular animated shows in recent years.
Discover more about dark matter. Rick uses dark matter to power his spaceship but MatPat wants to know if that’s actually scientifically possible. Neil tells us why the show might say dark matter but actually mean dark energy. You’ll learn more about the differences between the two and why dark energy would be more capable of being used over dark matter.
We also dive into antimatter. On Season 2, Episode 2, Rick and Morty of have to destroy a gaseous being named Fart and they do so by using an antimatter gun. So, what exactly is antimatter? Neil explains why antimatter is the “favorite fuel of science fiction” and just how antimatter works in real life.
All that, plus, we explore the multiverse of Rick and Morty with The Film Theorists right here:

Please give some suggestions for a game called "No Man's Sky" to make it more scientifically accurate. I mean it's the only game where you can explore 18 quintillion planets!

So, what if dark matter is just the 4th dimension form of gravity? It would make sense why we can't feel, touch or comprehend it, it's like a 2d triangle drawn on a paper trying to experience gravity. The triangle won't even notice it. And why does dark matter only make up 80% of the universe? What if black holes absorb black matter, that means 20% of our universe is made out of black holes. ( I don't know if that is true, I am just talking shiet,it probably makes no sense) BUT THAT'S JUST A THEORY, A RANDOM THEORY!

Is dark matter doesn’t react with itself then could you possibly put an infinite amount of dark matter into and infinitely smaller area ? Like an atom in the same position as another

☯️♾TORUS FIELD'S or MAGNETIC FIELDS or DIPOLE FIELDS or CONVECTION or CORIOLIS EFFECTS or ALTERNATING CURRENT or 3,6,9 are all super neat to read about. Think of it as also being life force energy that support, sustain, connect the system together with masculine and feminine energy periods. Another cool term search a article by Nasa called X POINTS or SOLAR CYCLE'S. 🔘🌍☀️🌙🌌➖➕⚛️✡️🔯➿ I am very spiritual I just use notions that are already out their. They seem to describe the forces that be, just fine. ♾☯️.🤤🔀🔀🔀🔀🤤

Wait, I read somewhere that a collision of matter and antimatter left a 1% (or something of the like) of matter left, and that was why our reality is made up of matter, Because everything we have is what's left over from the annihilation that occurred at the beginning of the universe.

This was hard to watch. First off, NDT should have watched the episodes in question before talking about them. Basic research while preparing for a planned out conversation (Especially when your guest was pre-recorded). 2nd is the fact that it took 17 min and 7 sec to, kind of, answer 2.. TWO!.. questions from Matpat. Instead of answering another question or showing images or even cutting the video shorter, they vamp, talk about "cartoon physics" and church basements. 3rd is that NDT acts like he is better than these silly questions and all Tysons in the multiverse would answer the same way. That is so narcissistic. Last but definitely not least was Chuck's impression of Rick and NDT giving it a B+?!?!? Watch the friggin show first!!! C- at the very most. Hard. To. Watch.

You're talking about dimensions as though they're no different from different universes. That's not what a dimension is! You have a universe, and in that universe there are different dimensions. Different "levels" so to speak, but they are all part of that universe. Traveling dimensions is like going to different floors in a building, where as going to a different universe is you going to a different building all together. But people constantly conflated the two!

The problem with an antimatter gun in my opinion is that air exist, so unless you have a way for it to not come into contact with/react to the air then you can’t use it as a ranged weapon

"We are prediction machines, and our predictions include ourselves, then that's what we do." Children's animated shows typically have really strong narrative causality. Strongly weighted towards each characters expectations/(inner narrative) regarding events that effect them. Even more so for the character the camera is watching. This causes a vicious cycle reinforcing the prediction machines as they keep being proved right.

6:56 But is interaction of dark matter with itself really necessary to concentrate it? If it does not interact, aren't you still able to increase the amount of dark matter elements per, let's say, m^3? Solving how it helps you with acceleration then is another problem, but my point is if it doesn't interact then you can force it to be everywhere you want it to be. But I don't know anything about physics, so... :-)

I mean, on the topic of Dark Matter/Energy. If Rick's ship was like Farnsworth, you just move the entire universe INSTEAD of moving your own ship then in a way it could make sense. If they could just lap space a few times and triple up the dark matter and keep it in certain ways to move certain ways.

Science says that the speed of light is the maximum speed. I wonder, if the photons can not escape from a black hole because even with the speed of light you can not escape the gravity of a black hole, and yet from black holes there is some kind of matter and energy expelled or escaping the gravity which means it takes more than speed of light to get out from a black hole. So it is possible that the speed of light we know is not the maximum speed. I think it is possible that some matter can travel ten times the known speed of light.

What if Rick was a creature born in a different multiverse, who had a different level, perspective, and understanding of science and the way things interact and because he was born in a different multiverse. Using the multiverse theory proposed in the previous R&M episode stating that multiple big bangs could have happened and that each multiverse had different starting points and that each multiverse could have different laws of physics. So because Rick was born into a different multiverse and because physics works different in his multiverse he is able to interact with dark matter differently because the laws of physics act differently there. This could also make sense because of Rick's constant toying with the word human, he's a different creature born in a different multiverse who happens to look like a 'human'.

if anti-matter destroys matter, how can it be contained? shouldn't it destroy the recipient where it is contained? and even if the recipient is anti-matter too, shouldn't it be destroyed with the air particles? or anything that touches it?
