Beloved science icon and space lord Neil deGrasse Tyson will have a weekly late-night show on National Geographic Channel, the network announced. Star Talk, based on Tyson's popular podcast, will be filmed live at the Hayden Planetarium and will feature comedians and celebrities alongside Tyson as they explore scientific concepts. (If you're looking for an entrée into the podcast archives, start with any ep that includes Eugene Mirman.) The TV show premieres in April, which gives us all some time to brush up on our astrophysics.
