10News reporter Jeff Lasky interviews Neil Degrasse Tyson, the world’s most famous astrophysicist, at Comic-Con 2016. The famous and fun astrophysicist talks about why he loves Comic-Con and why he feels such a duty to communicate to the entertainment world about the importance of science.

He's the man with a seemingly endless stream of science fun facts at his command. He's also a great gourmet. We talk to the famed scientist about how his two great passions collide in the kitchen.

"I don't require that a candidate know science. I require, when I vote, that the candidate knows when they don't know science, and uses that as the occasion to talk to their advisors." - Neil DeGrasse Tyson

If a politician doesn't believe in science or climate change...that is one thing.  However....when the majority of the political might of a political party ignores it simply for political gain...that is the height of stupidity when representing the home constituents.

Are we alone in the universe?

Mars was once habitable - so could we be Martians or Martians be Earthlings? Setting foot on the Red Planet could help us uncover these and more questions.

NASA 360 joins Dr. John Grunsfeld, former Associate Administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, as he discusses the potential for life on Mars and what it will take to make such a discovery.

This video was created from a live recording at the Humans to Mars Summit in May 2016.

+James Rothman Time is not a creation cause it can be measured, did you think that was a valid statement. I'm also fairly certain the time and space are not the essential ingredients to the universe. According to modern science I believe time and space are constructs. Something like gravity holds stuff to together I think <==(sarcasm).

Create a smoothly integrated and beautiful solar-roof-with-battery product that just works, empowering the individual as their own utility, and then scale that throughout the world.
...
That is why Tesla engineering has transitioned to focus heavily on designing the machine that makes the machine -- turning the factory itself into a product. A first principles physics analysis of automotive production suggests that somewhere between a 5 to 10 fold improvement is achievable by version 3 on a roughly 2 year iteration cycle.
...
We believe the Tesla Semi will deliver a substantial reduction in the cost of cargo transport, while increasing safety and making it really fun to operate.
...
With the advent of autonomy, it will probably make sense to shrink the size of buses and transition the role of bus driver to that of fleet manager.
....
I should add a note here to explain why Tesla is deploying partial autonomy now, rather than waiting until some point in the future. The most important reason is that, when used correctly, it is already significantly safer than a person driving by themselves and it would therefore be morally reprehensible to delay release simply for fear of bad press or some mercantile calculation of legal liability.
...
You will also be able to add your car to the Tesla shared fleet just by tapping a button on the Tesla phone app and have it generate income for you while you're at work or on vacation, significantly offsetting and at times potentially exceeding the monthly loan or lease cost.
...
So, in short, Master Plan, Part Deux is:

Create stunning solar roofs with seamlessly integrated battery storage
Expand the electric vehicle product line to address all major segments
Develop a self-driving capability that is 10X safer than manual via massive fleet learning
Enable your car to make money for you when you aren't using it "
*/ The first master plan that I wrote 10 years ago is now in the final stages of completion. It wasn't all that complicated and basically consisted of:

I would like to see more nuclear power. Nuclear as well as solar could charge the Tesla vehicles.

EROEI on solar is getting better. But what is the EROEI for solar panels plus lithium batteries? This article suggests it is too low: https://bravenewclimate.com/2014/08/22/catch-22-of-energy-storage/

I believe we will need other energy sources besides solar to provide constant power 24/7/365.

Seems every few decades the World goes batshit crazy. Just long enough to forget the last time the World went batshit crazy.

Google Plus has a cap of 5000 people in Circles total and the above Date and time is when we crossed that threshold. As a result of this policy I cannot Circle more people at this time with out un-Circling some early adopters. My current feelings are that would be unfair to them so please know I appreciate your interest but unfortunately I won't be Circling you until the above policy changes. 
Thank-you for your interest and understanding.

To parents of young children ;
Your discretion is advised as episodes of strong language, Agnosticism, Free Thinking and Science may occur here with no further warning. You may want to use these an a teaching opportunity to discuss social conventions and human reproduction with your off-spring.
