StarTalk x The Film Theorists: Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains the Science of Rick and Morty

Wubba lubba dub dub! On this very special video of StarTalk Radio we’re teaming up with @The Film Theorists to explore the science of Rick and Morty! Neil deGrasse Tyson is joined by comic co-host Chuck Nice and MatPat of The Film Theorists to dive into some iconic science portrayed on one of the most popular animated shows in recent years.
Discover more about dark matter. Rick uses dark matter to power his spaceship but MatPat wants to know if that’s actually scientifically possible. Neil tells us why the show might say dark matter but actually mean dark energy. You’ll learn more about the differences between the two and why dark energy would be more capable of being used over dark matter.
We also dive into antimatter. On Season 2, Episode 2, Rick and Morty of have to destroy a gaseous being named Fart and they do so by using an antimatter gun. So, what exactly is antimatter? Neil explains why antimatter is the “favorite fuel of science fiction” and just how antimatter works in real life.
All that, plus, we explore the multiverse of Rick and Morty with The Film Theorists right here: nlgo.info/video/q3yZxIWil8vTnYM.html

    Here's my take on the dark matter thing with Rick's spaceship: the fuel Rick made was water, cesium, and dark matter. The writers saw some video of alkali metals reacting with water, they'd heard that figure of dark matter having 6 times the gravitational pull of regular matter, then they thought, "the cesium and water go boom and the dark matter pulls the energy in from that reaction so that it's stable enough use as fuel" That's my best guess at what their reasoning was.

    a higher amount of dark matter than usual in such a container, and then also move it around since that container's inner surface would interact with dark matter.

    Based on the law of conservation of energy and conservation of mass? How does anti-matter + matter create energy? For my basic analysis of the chemistry involved how is energy created? I figured it’s either based on kinetics or other methods and not to be created by the unification of anti-matter & normal matter? Then where does mass go if the particles become energy?

    I personally have a theory about time travel though it's not really time travel it's more like multiverse world theory ware their are two worlds that are exactly the same besides the time the worlds are created with means if a person that lives on one world figured out how to go to the other it would seem to them they traveled though time but really all that they did was travel through diminson's to a world that began at a different time in it's past

    Would it not be possible to collect and contain dark matter if you did manage to have something that interacts with it? Say you bind some form of matter/energy/force we haven't discovered yet, which dark matter does interact with, to the inside of an ordinary material container, if you get dark matter in there, it should technically contain concentrated dark matter. Sure it won't experience pressure like ordinary matter does when there's a lot of it in a confined space, so it won't *seem* concentrated, but you should still be able to have a higher amount of dark matter than usual in such a container, and then also move it around since that container's inner surface would interact with dark matter.

    Is it possible that dark matter is what's left over from matter and antimatter collisions? Without being able to detect it other than its gravity, how would could ever know if we're creating dark matter in a lab? Furthermore, could we possibly collide so much matter and antimatter that we increase the Earth's gravity?
