The Late Show with Stephen Colbert won’t hit the airwaves until September 8th, but Colbert is already getting his Late Show Youtube channel up and running. That’s where you will find this video breaking down NASA’s amazing flyby of Pluto last week, a journey that involved the New Horizons spacecraft traveling a staggering 3 billion miles. (See photos here.) Joining Colbert is Neil deGrasse Tyson, who needs no introduction around here. Enjoy the banter, and don’t forget that you can download Tyson’s short course, The Inexplicable Universe. It’s free from The Great Courses for a limited time.
If the concept of Colbert interviewing Tyson intrigues you, don’t miss this lengthy interview originally posted on OC in 2011.
