"How do I get that lovely pin?" you may ask...

Bill Nye • November 07, 2013 • 10

Tonight, I'm on The Big Bang Theory with Bob Newhart. I hope you watch closely enough to notice the pin in my lapel. It's our pin, The Planetary Society logo pin. It's the coolest logo pin ever. So, you're probably wondering how to get one. Join The Planetary Society by November 15, and we'll send you a pin.

Dancing With The Stars

Bill Nye • September 04, 2013 • 43

Something remarkable has come up. I've been cast as a 'star' on Dancing With The Stars here in the US. (For our British readers, it's a very similar format to your Strictly Come Dancing.) As unusual as this may seem, I believe we can broaden awareness of the Society and thereby humankind's exploration of the Cosmos one ballroom dance at a time.

The Goal is Mars

Bill Nye • July 10, 2013 • 22

Bad Budget News for NASA's Planetary Exploration Program

Bill Nye • April 10, 2013 • 13

The Administration just released its proposed budget for 2014 and it contains some very bad news for NASA's planetary exploration program. Just three weeks ago the U.S. Congress rejected similar cuts proposed for planetary exploration last year. It was a clear statement of support by both Congress and the public: planetary exploration is an affordable national priority.

A Major Political Victory for The Planetary Society

Bill Nye • March 29, 2013

Let’s Reckon Time Together

Bill Nye • March 20, 2013 • 2

The EarthDial project was born in 2004, and we’re bring it back again for the Curiosity mission. It’s a sundial visually reminiscent of the MarsDials, but exactly ten times as big. We encourage you to set up your own EarthDial, rig up a webcam, and post the images. In the coming weeks, we’ll coordinate the EarthDials from around the world, just as we did for a few years after the Spirit & Opportunity landings. It’s a remarkable project that can engage individuals, classrooms, or entire schools. The price of webcams has come way down in recent years. So, we’re hopeful that several readers of this blog will give it a try.
