A few months ago, we had the one and only Bill Nye in our studios to photograph in prep for an interview with Stephanie LaCava. The interview released on Vice’s i-D last week and we are loving the message. In the article, Bill discusses how space affects us on on earth a daily even when we don’t realize it! Bill explains it as “When the weather report is off 15 minutes, people start complaining, because we get all this weather information, communications, data transfers, from satellites. We depend on space.”
The iconic figure to our culture further discusses the US’ role in space exploration and why investing in science is crucial to such a matter. Furthermore, the interview moves on to highlight the anti-science movement that has been occurring in the US today.
In reading his interview, Bill seemed rather upbeat in what he had to say in his interview. Even when asked about an article released on NYT, he responded that he hadn’t seen it, but later emailed his response! The way that he follows through 100% is something that inspires us greatly and is just one of many reasons why we were so stoked to have him in our studios.
The photos taken by Katie McCurdy turned out great! Check out some of our favorites, below and let us know which one is your favorite of this ultra rad science guy.
