The universe is a dangerous place. Threats can come from any direction.

That's where Phil Plait comes in. He's an 'Alpha Nerd' with a PhD in Astronomy, on a mission to debunk all the junk science out there and reveal the truth. In each episode, he'll show you the real science behind the mysteries of this planet, our solar system and the bad universe we all live in. It might just save your life.
