A fan asks if, from a cosmic perspective, entropy will eventually give way to equilibrium, or is the order of the Universe just Newtonian? To answer this Cosmic Query, Neil deGrasse Tyson explains to Chuck Nice how a system’s source of energy is what determines order, complexity and entropy. On a comically related note, Neil and Chuck discuss the Nobel Prize-winning discovery of blue LEDs. If you love StarTalk Radio, don't miss out on any StarTalk news.

A fan asks, "Is it possible that the universe isn't expanding, but that we're all just shrinking at a constant rate all the way to nothingness?" While comic co-host Eugene Mirman is quick to dismiss the possibility, Neil deGrasse Tyson is intrigued by this "fun idea" and needs a little more time to consider it seriously in this StarTalk Radio Cosmic Query.
