Star Trek really blazed some trails but some don't realize it

SDSU had a professor that would teach mid-century American history using Star Trek (or Star Wars, one of them).  Most folks who took it did it as a goof, but say they really enjoyed the class and the content made a ton of sense.

You’re missing the point. Don’t list the supposedly token black astrophysicist as an example when it sure seems like he is in actuality the token astrophysicist in people’s minds. Neil DeGrasse Tyson got there by being really good at communicating very complex ideas in a simple enough way for the general public to understand. There’s no conspiracy, he’s just the best at it right now.

Let's be serious... he got there buy being the "Actually..." guy for James Cameron movies. :ph34r:

That string theory guy and the Asian guy who used to go on art bell all the time.

Brian Greene and Michio Kaku. Had to look up the names, but I remembered who they were. Should I get a prize?

You got to listen to coast to coast with Art Bell. You already received the prize.

You can still go back and listen to some of those old episodes. I think a couple of the Kaku episodes are still out there if you look hard enough.

Great radio.

Gene Roddenberry was a visionary
