Today We Learned Our Friend Bill Nye Took Astronomy Classes From Carl Sagan [VIDEO]

Did the classroom implode into a black hole of awesomeness?

Our friend Bill Nye is being profiled by the new PBS/NOVA series The Secret Lives of Scientists. Previously, he’s shared his origin story and spoken about his penchant for bowties. In this clip, Bill chats about how deeply he’s been influenced by Carl Sagan (you know, the host of the original Cosmos), and how Bill hopes to continue Sagan’s legacy.

Is it possible for us to love this man any more than we already do? Somehow the answer always seems to be, “Obviously, yes.”

Sam Maggs is a writer and televisioner, currently hailing from the Kingdom of the North (Toronto). Her first book, THE FANGIRL'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY will be out soon from Quirk Books. Sam’s parents saw Star Wars: A New Hope 24 times when it first came out, so none of this is really her fault.
