    dude, what would happen if you filled a balloon with shaken up soda???

  3. [...] to the future is to do more with less. He ended his talk brilliantly by introducing his prototype Solar Sail that will be tried into space next year. With no engine, it is still possible to send probes far in [...]

    How come we can’t spend more than we make but it’s okay for the government to do this? We need to start making serious cuts, and Bill Nye is upset because they cut this very expensive project. Libs

    I grew up to your show, and I am pleased to see more of the real you, hard hitting fox news and bastardi, hosting a part of the iss experiments show, and directing a space foundation.

    I am now a 26 yo engineering student, and a lead programmer for Pueblo, Co’s own space grant consortium team.

    I hope to contribute to the energy revolution, 3d printing, and everything open source. You are a continuing source of inspiration to me and thousands like me,

    Keep up the good fight.

    what causes gravity and why does gravity pull/keep us on the ground? it is very confusing I cant figure it out

    I’m a big fan of yours and a HUGE fan of science. Sometimes my friends call me “Billy Nye” because I’m so obsessed with science. Sometimes at recess, I go up to one of my friends and talk about science this, science that. One time or another, I made my friends so bored with my science talk that they were literally getting sleepy. My favourite subject in school is, as you can guess, science. My favourite subjects in science would be space and chemistry. I wish that there was a space and chemistry unit in science.

    I would like to know how much is the axial precession advancing? And say 68 million years ago the earth did not have a wobble just two poles and spinning straight. Also with all the tsunamis and other geological phenomenon does this have any effect on the magma below the mantle? Oh and I am listening to the theory of a solar sail, I actually thought of this 30 years ago.
    Thank you and Trek on kind Sir,
    Kathy McQuillen
