Neil deGrasse Tyson gives an interview for his StarTalk radio show, and discusses the importance of food for the psychological wellbeing of astronauts, and also comments on the joys of eating 5-year old irradiated steak.

Tyson is a renowned astrophysicist, and Director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York.

He is often blamed for the man directly responsible for the relegation of Pluto to “dwarf planet” status, and he regularly hosts a comedy/pop-science show called “StarTalk”, which can be found on the StarTalk YouTube channel.
