Neil deGrasse Tyson interviews Ed Snowden (2)

Neil deGrasse Tyson hat die zweite Stunde seines Interviews mit Telepresence-Robot-Snowden veröffentlicht, Teil 1 hatte ich hier gebloggt.

This episode isn’t just advanced math and n-dimensional matrices – Neil and Edward leave Earth behind and dive into the wavelengths of pulsars and cosmic background radiation in search of the perfect random number generator for an ideal seed value. Plus, Neil and Edward discuss the difficulty of separating the signal from the noise, both in astrophysics and in government mass surveillance.
