Happy Birthday Bill Nye!
One of our most prominent advocates for science education, Bill Nye, turns 58 today. It’s hard to believe it only ran for 5 years, but I remember watching “Bill Nye, the Science Guy” on PBS when I was growing up.

Let’s all wish this science educator, author, mechanical engineer, and much-loved TV personality a very happy birthday!

So many questions rose in my mind. What were they thinking at the last moment of their lives?"
