If you’re skeptical about human-caused climate change or the safety of vaccines, would being berated in front of a live studio audience by a bombastic old man make you change your mind? Then congratulations, Bill Nye’s new Netflix show, Bill Nye Saves The World, is literally just for you!
The debut trailer is out for our favorite nerdy scientist’s new Netflix series, and one thing is clear. This ain’t your daddy’s Bill Nye, folks. It’s more like Bill Nye the SEXY GUY.
This week, a popular Knowledge Dude revealed that he possesses “about 500" bow ties, but can you guess which one?
Bill Nye has a new science show—but it won’t be on TV. It’s coming to Netflix this Spring.
Less than a year after the LightSail cubesat successfully deployed its solar sails in space, the Planetary Society has unveiled its successor, an experimental spacecraft designated LightSail-2.
You’d have to live in an underwater cave to have missed the news that human activity is warming the planet. But climate change is a really complex issue, impacting everything from our atmosphere to our oceans in ways that aren’t always obvious. Still, it’s important that we all try to understand the basics.
Symphony of Science is back! The project, helmed by John D. Boswell (aka Melodysheep) had been putting together some fantastic music videos featuring autotuned scientists. Now, he’s collaborated with the Planetary Society for the latest video, Beyond the Horizon.
You probably remember Bill Nye from when he taught you real things about actual science. But as it turns out, he also knows about — and I’m quoting here — “blowing shit up”.
The Mean Tweets genre — whereby a celebrity reads a sampling of their Twitter abuse — is well established by this stage in the internet life cycle. So it’s about time that Bill Nye shared his worst.
Although climate change is a complicated topic, the basic nuances are fairly easy to understand. But in case you (or your Member of Congress) still needs help, here’s Bill Nye and some emoji to shed some light.
Over the weekend, the LightSail satellite unfurled its gigantic solar sail to help propel it through space. Now, the first images to be beamed back from the satellite prove that it’s really up and running.
For the last few weeks since its launch, the experimental LightSail satellite has been orbiting Earth, unable to make ground contact thanks to a software glitch. But earlier today, the spacecraft’s handlers successfully deployed the little craft’s gigantic sail.
In this NSFW Comedy Central video, Bill Nye — with the help of some familiar faces — explains how the Universe is a force that sends “cosmic guidance” to white women their 20s.
Any time Bill Nye explains anything like this, I’m immediately back in elementary school science class.
The Fermi Paradox is a question that stumps and fascinates scientists (and pretty much everyone else, let's be real.) The question, originally posed by Italian physicist Enrico Fermi, wonders at why there are theoretically so many habitable planets in the universe, but humanity has yet to make contact with any form of…
Children of the '90s probably remember being educated by Bill Nye and his incredible array of bow-ties. But tweens these days probably don't really have the same attention span, so here's the great man himself, explaining evolution in 90 seconds through the medium of emoji.
Bill Nye the eponymous Science Guy was in Toronto "Canadia" today as part of Planetary Radio's We See Thee Rise: The Canadian Space Program, and appeared on Global's The Morning Show to talk space and Europa and evolution (and make weird noises!). His debate with Ken Ham, and the topic of creationism vs evolution…
Science guy Bill Nye says the two logical places to search for alien life in our solar system are Mars and Europa, the smallest of Jupiter's four moons. Why Europa? Nye gets into some details in this interview with Big Think, but here's the gist: Water. Water water. Water, water water water water; water water water! …
If you're a bit of a geek (and I know you are because, c'mon, you're reading Gizmodo), you probably grew up watching Bill Nye. The goofy puns, the cheeky visuals, the corny yet cool music videos, all inspired a generation to grow up and do cool things with science. Here's our TV hero's origin story.
