“How do I know you’re not tomorrow’s supervillain?”
That’s just one of the questions astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson asks in a new show we’re co-producing with our friends at StarTalk Radio. It’s called “Rising Stars” — you can watch it on mobile, desktop and TV through Watch on Facebook right here. And look for it to be featured in the Facebook Watch tab on Tuesdays.
Each week, you’ll see NdGT interview another innovator in tech and science. This week, he interviews Easton LaChappelle. This prodigy created an advanced prosthetic arm when he was just 14. Now he has a company called Unlimited Tomorrow and big-time supporters like Tony Robbins.
“There is no one universal prosthetic,” says LaChappelle in the first episode. “And that is a big goal of this project.” He’s aiming to make cheap and functional prosthetics with the help of 3D printing.
Still ahead in the series, one-on-one interviews with the next generation of leaders: Soylent CEO Rob Rhinehart, Kickstarter co-founder Yancey Strickler, AsapSCIENCE stars Mitch Moffit and Greg Brown, and YouTuber and science educator Emily Graslie.
