How Neil deGrasse Tyson ‘Experimented on His Kids’ Using the Tooth Fairy

TV By

You probably know astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson from his turn hosting the wildly popular hit miniseries Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. Since then, he’s launched an Emmy-nominated podcast/radio show, which has been turned into a late-night talk show, StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson, that airs on the National Geographic Channel (its third season premieres on Sept. 19).

Guesting on another late-night talker, The Late Late Show with James Corden, deGrasse Tyson talked about how he and his wife (who has a Ph.D. in mathematical physics) applied science to how their kids learned about the tooth fairy. Watch the results below. (Also, watch him answer three questions posed by another Corden guest, Andy Samberg.)
