Let’s say that suddenly we don’t like so much planet Mars or we realize that it’s moving towards Earth. We want to blow it up. Can we do that?
The director of Hayden Planetarium and famous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson makes every week a podcast, the Star Talk Radio and he answers questions sent by anyone who wants to learn more about the universe. This week, he decided to talk about how can we blow up a planet. In response to this question, he “teaches” us the way to “get rid” of an unwanted planet.
This knowledge may not be usefull right now, but: a. you never know and b. It is always a pleasure to hear Neil deGrasse Tyson revealing the secrets of the universe, even if we don’t plan to blow a planet during the next weeks.
