Welcome to the new Bill Nye Site!

By Bill Nye | Published: November 12, 2009 – 10:32 am

Dear readers,

Bill Nye

Welcome indeed to my new site. Here you’ll find all that you would want to know about my latest television projects like Stuff Happens and my latest web work, Solving for X. It’s about algebra. What could be more fun? The Science Guy® Show material is still here along with all manner of other musings, including my blog, Twitter, and Facebook postings.

There’s a media area, a place to find press information and where we can see each other next.

I’m excited to have things up and changing again. I hope you are as well.

Plutonium in Space

By Bill Nye | Published: November 12, 2009 – 10:31 am

About fifteen years ago, I had the honor and pleasure of having lunch with Glenn Seaborg. Unlike many of us, he was awarded a Nobel Prize. He discovered, or created, or contrived the means to prepare the very first piece of Plutonium humans had ever seen.

Rivalry with Ed Begley

By Bill Nye | Published: November 10, 2009 – 11:41 am

I happen to live up the street from one Ed Begley Jr. Oh yes, he’s a big time Hollywood actor. I say Hollywood, even though he, like me, lives in the great bit less prestigious Studio City. And oh yes, he’s been a green-living guy for many years. Ah, but I’m right behind him.

Since the early 1990′s, Ed has had solar panels, photovoltaic thin sheets of specially prepared silicon that convert sunlight directly into electricity. Oh yes, Ed’s got a brand new integrated solar heating and solar drinkable hot water system. Oh yes, Ed’s got a garden from which he gets plenty of vegetables. He’s got an on-site composter, too. And oh yes, Ed’s got a drought tolerant, what we like to call “xeriscaped,” yard. In Greek, “xeri” is “dry.” But I too, have all (well almost all) of these things. Ha! Begley; take that! Read More >
