With a better grasp on space and what could possibly be out there, we can look “outside the box”, or outside our planet, so to speak. This can open up so many more doors of opportunities for humankind. We speak to guests Sean Carroll, Terry Virts, Lawrence Krauss, Chris Hadfield, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and more on this fascinating topic.

Astronauts in Space

We wouldn’t have our space discoveries without the brave souls who ventured into the unknown. At London Real we have been lucky to speak with several astronauts.

We had guest Terry Virts, who spent more than 212 days in space on 2 flights. He’s also logged over 4,300 flights hours in over 40 different aircraft. He speaks to us about how our planet is a beautiful place and how he got a spectacular view from outer space.

Another astronaut we spoke to was Chris Hadfield. He was named the most social media savvy astronaut ever by Forbes Magazine. Hadfield has a chat with us about important life lessons he’s learned during his time as an astronaut.

Not just that, but he also has an in-depth discussion about how much David Bowie’s song “Space Oddity” has impacted him. Hadfield actually covered this song while in outer space!

This is surely a unique music video that you don’t want to miss out on. He also talks about how poetry’s affected his life.

Astrophysics

When you think of astrophysics, you probably don’t think of it as the most captivating of subjects. But without it, exploration in space would not be possible.

One person who’s made astrophysics more relatable for the general public is Neil DeGrasse Tyson. You’ve probably heard of him, as he’s America’s Most Popular Scientist. He’s also been voted the Sexiest Astrophysicist Alive.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson spends an hour with us discussing science and its broader implications to our society as a whole. This interview is surely a scintillating one, as he’s not afraid to dissect each and every question asked of him.

Philosophy and Space

When you tackle such a complex subject, the topic of space is sure to instigate some thoughts about religion and more.

We spoke with American theoretical physicist Sean Carroll. He takes some complex subjects and breaks them down into more digestible pieces, making his episode a fascinating watch.

In his time with us, Sean Carroll speaks about why God is not a good theory. He also speaks about several other scientific topics, such as electromagnetism, general relativity, the Big Bang event, the singularity, AI, and more.

We also got to chat with another theoretical physicist, Lawrence Krauss. This man has written over 300 scientific publications and 9 books, including several best-sellers.

Like Carroll, Lawrence Krauss is firmly against religion, especially in the scientific realm. In fact, he believes that religion is the death of intelligence. While this is quite a strong stance, there is some truth to it, considering religions have suppressed science multiple times in history.
