We chatted with legendary astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson on extraterrestrial life and more.
Popular Science: Would you rather have a jetpack or flying car?
Neil deGrasse Tyson: What I would rather have is a transportation system that requires neither: a wormhole.
PS: What incredible thing will we see in our lifetime?
NDT: I think that we will know whether or not there’s life on planets other than Earth. And I think the best location would be on Mars or on Jupiter’s moon Europa.
PS: When we find life on other planets, is it going to come and eat us?
NDT: No. People’s first thought every time scientists discover something new is, “Oh, my gosh, you created a virus, so there’s gonna be a killer virus.” I’m not more afraid of something I might find on Mars than I am of a polar bear who’s pissed off because his ice floe is melting.

Synesthesia is a neurological trait that combines two or more senses. Synesthetes may taste the number 9 or attach a color to each day of the week. What color is your Friday?

"One day my log will have something to say about this. My log saw something that night."
We simply can’t get enough of the artwork by our friend Cuddly Rigor Mortis (previously featured here). Entitled Lady Log, this adorable role reversal of two Twin Peaks characters was created for In Dreams, a group art show tribute to the inimitably awesome David Lynch taking place at the Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco, CA. The show features work by over 50 artists from around the world and opens this Saturday March 8th and runs through March 29, 2014.
We know what the log says to the Log Lady, but now we have to wonder, what would the lady say to the log?
