Happy 57th Birthday Bill Nye! (The Science Guy)

Today marks the 57th birthday of one of the most interesting and fun science popularizer out there: William Sanford Nye, aka, Bill Nye, the science guy. Bill is best known as being the host of the popular Disney children’s show bearing his own name (1993-1997). He has also appeared in countless other shows as a comedian and science educator. The first one coming to mind for me is when he played himself (along with Neil deGrasse Tyson) in an episode of Stargate Atlantis. Check it out!

Happy birthday Bill, and kudos for being one of the most awesome and entertaining personalities in the bland world of popular TV.
