Storyline

Bill Nye is retiring his kid show act in a bid to become more like his late professor, astronomer Carl Sagan. Sagan dreamed of launching a spacecraft that could change interplanetary exploration. Bill sets out to accomplish Sagan's space mission, but he is pulled away when he is challenged by evolution and climate change contrarians to defend the scientific consensus. Can Bill show the world why science matters in a culture increasingly indifferent to evidence?

Many personal insights from a major public figure
3 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

I didn't know what to expect from the film going in, but I thought it was a learning experience ultimately. I learned about some of the things that drive Bill Nye that I didn't know. Why does he continue to talk to rabid opponents of science? How does he examine the evidence?

Revealing personal and professional details that are sometimes unflattering helped to give this film s bit of self-awareness that's not always present in follow-this-famous-figure films. Some things are left unanswered--is Nye's the right strategy for dealing with some raucous topics in science? What will his legacy ultimately be?

I think it's worthwhile to see the stories of folks on the front line of science battles as we think about how we want to make decisions on education, health, and environmental issues going forward. It's not easy to stand there, but I'm glad some have the courage to take it on. And seeing them as regular people may be helpful.
