Bill Nye & Neil DeGrasse Tyson on a Roof

Go Back

“Dear Citizen of Planet Earth,”

That's how Carl Sagan addressed the public in an introductory letter about the Planetary Society back in the 1980s.

Now Bill (CEO) and Neil (Board Member) reminisce about those days, talk about what we should call people from planet Earth, discuss how Neil's Cosmos TV show stressed Bill out, and tell us who the first humans to orbit Mars will be.

Thanks guys!! I will definitely be showing this to my middle school students if that's ok with you. You two continue to inspire me to inspire our youth.

Sometimes when I watch the news I get sad, so much crazy things going on. You both are a voice of reason and can inspire people to use their brains . Keep up the good work guys, we need you! Best regards from another European ;)

Najssssssss... :) They should have clarified how to call someone from Uranus, though... Would it be Uranians or...? I've been born either too late or too early. No matter how slim the chances, if you're in middle school I envy you for the opportunity.
