Could the Big Bang have been the result of something traveling faster than the speed of light? In answering Jeff Sloan's Cosmic Query, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice discuss Cherenkov radiation, sonic booms and light booms, and why a diamond sparkles. Find out how we can conduct faster-than-light experiments if it's impossible to travel faster than the speed of light in this "Behind the Scenes" StarTalk Video.
