A Conversation With Edward Snowden

Neil deGrasse Tyson’s featured guest on StarTalk this week is none other than Edward Snowden. This is more of an informal conversation that involves everything from encryption to communication with aliens.

Neil deGrasse Tyson chats with whistleblower Edward Snowden via robotic telepresence from Moscow. The two card-carrying members of the geek community discuss Isaac Newton, the difference between education and learning, and even how knowledge is created. They also dive into the Periodic Table and chemistry, before moving on to the more expected subjects of data compression, encryption and privacy.
