In episode #301 of Science Goes to the Movies, Neil deGrasse Tyson joins host Faith Salie to talk about two science-related films in which he's featured. First, Tyson shares the scientific input he was able to have in the making of DreamWorks' Ice Age: Collision Course, in which he voices the character, Neil deBuck Weasel, as well as a breakdown of the methods for redirecting dangerous meteors like the one depicted in the movie. Tyson then discusses the film Adam Nimoy made about his late father, Leonard, For the Love of Spock, and what it is that makes us, as a culture, respond so strongly to the legendary Star Trek character, Spock. Also included: Tyson's weirdest childhood story from growing up a huge science geek.
