Bill Nye is a renowned scientist known all over the world. Bill Nye worked as an engineer with Boeing Aircraft in Seattle, where he designed a hydraulic pressure resonance suppressor which is used in 747 airplanes. And funnily enough, he got his break into television by winning a Steve Martin look-alike contest. Bill grew up with science. He says that his first childhood memory was him playing with a rubber band powered paper airplane. He was trying to figure out how to make it turn, so he could stand still and it would come back to him. Everyone loves bill nye and knows who he is. Heres why.
Bill Nye is known across the globe for his educational TV show “ Bill Nye the Science Guy”, but he's known for more than just that. He's been on multiple TV shows including “ Blindspot”, “ Living With Ed”, “The Eyes of Nye”, “Dancing With The Stars”, and many more. But surprisingly, Bill Nye also has some haters. According to Scientific American, “ Bill Nye does not speak for us and he does not speak for science. Tonight, Bill Nye “The Science Guy” will accompany Republican Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK), Trump’s nominee for NASA Administrator, to the State of the Union address. Nye has said that he’s accompanying the Congressman to help promote space exploration, since, he asserts, NASA is the best brand the United States has and that his attendance should not be … seen as an acceptance of the recent attacks on science and the scientific community.” Science American believes that by choosing to come with a republican rep. , he is “working to undermine civil rights.” But, that is an opinion and we don't know for sure why Bill chose to do what he did. Bill Nye is truly a very inspiring person trying to educate the world through humor and fun.
Bill Nye quotes, “ There really is no such thing as race. We all come from Africa. We are all of the same stardust. We are all going to live and die on the same planet, a pale blue dot in the vastness of space. We have to work together.” Not only is he educating all around the world, but he is trying to make a change for our world. He is working with Climate One to speak to people about the climate issue. They interviewed him about his recent documentary. Heres a piece from the interview. “ Greg Dalton: So when people say we’re not sure what the climate was like… Bill Nye: Yes we are -- is the response. Yes, we are.
Bill Nye may have some controversy about whether or not he speaks for science, but he is definitely an inspiring, educator, who makes people happy.
