Ever wonder what it would be like to fall into a black hole? Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson can tell you about it.

Tyson is the director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, NY. His latest book is a collection of essays called Death by Black Hole and Other Cosmic Quandaries.

He spoke with EarthSky’s Jorge Salazar on why people should care about studying the stars, about an imaginary one-way trip into a black hole, and about the very real possibility of a killer asteroid making its way in the future to Earth.
