    Bill Nye - scientist, engineer, comedian, author, and inventor - is a man with a mission: to help foster a scientifically literate society, and to help people everywhere understand and appreciate the science that makes our world work. But making science both understandable and entertaining is something Bill has been doing much of his life, starting with his studying under the great Carl Sagan in college and later working as a stand-up comedian.

    Get ready as Bill Nye the Science Guy - clad in his characteristic bowtie and lab coat - takes you deep inside the mysteries of everything science through the dynamic hands-on demonstrations that have made him famous!

    Bill – who currently serves as Executive Director of The Planetary Society (the world’s large space interest organization) – says he has been a science geek since childhood. Born and reared in Washington, DC, he further nurtured his fascination with science after high school by entering Cornell University where his coursework included being a student under Carl Sagan. After earning his Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell, he headed for Seattle where he worked as an engineer at Boeing. There, Bill's achievements included designing a hydraulic pressure resonance suppressor which is used in Boeing 747s.

    Eventually, he quit his day engineering day job and made the transition to a night job as a comedy writer and performer on Seattle’s home-grown ensemble comedy show “Almost Live.” This is where “Bill Nye the Science Guy®” was born.

    The show won 18 Emmys in five years. In between creating the shows, he wrote five kids’ books about science, including his latest title, Bill Nye’s Great Big Book of Tiny Germs.

    Currently, Bill is host of three television series: The 100 Greatest Discoveries which airs on the Science Channel; The Eyes of Nye on PBS, and an environmental education show on Planet Green called Stuff Happens.

    With Special Guest Bill Nye the Science Guy

    Planetary Radio is world-renowned for its fascinating weekly interviews with innovators who are at the center of space exploration, such as trailblazing scientists, engineers, astronauts, writers and other advocates who provide a unique perspective on the study of our solar system and beyond.

    But every now and then Planetary Radio, a key component of The Planetary Society -- the largest and most influential space interest organization on Earth – likes to venture away from the Society’s headquarters in Pasadena, CA to produce a Planetary Radio show live on the road in front of an audience.

    Planetary Radio host Mat Kaplan and his boss, Planetary Society CEO Bill Nye, will welcome special guests Mike Rowe of "Dirty Jobs" and others! The show also features exciting news about the solar system from the Society's Planetary Evangelist, Emily Lakdawalla, and the always fun "What's Up" segment with astronomer Bruce Betts.  The weekly space trivia contest also goes live with prizes provided by Celestron!

    Be in the audience for this exciting interactive show with surprise guests, a planetary science update from Emily Lakdawalla, and your chance to win the Space Trivia Contest!

    Says Mat: “People, especially kids, care about space exploration in a big way, and Planetary Radio wants to help bring this excitement to them live at the Expo.” A  Planetary Society staff member for more than 12 years, Mat’s extensive background in journalism ranges from serving as a public radio reporter covering political conventions to movie reviewer for an international magazine.
