Bill Nye Took Astronomy From Carl Sagan
The Science Guy discusses how taking an astronomy class from Carl Sagan helped set him on the path to bowtiehood, and how Carl’s advice helped mold Bill’s famous show.
Another wonderful reminder that teachers, famous or not, make all the difference. These are the guys who inspired me, and if I can pay forward one-tenth of that inspiration to someone else… Life Achievement Unlocked.

Brian Greene recently launched his website “World Science U” where you can learn about things like relativity and quantum mechanics! On the site, you will be able to explore hundreds of answers to questions you may have and take short courses to learn about cool things like Space, Time and Einstein. The short courses have no prerequisites, so anyone can take them. Brian Greene also offers courses at the university level on General Relativity, Special Relativity, and Quantum Mechanics! How awesome is that?!
Registration is free, so go ahead and join and start learning about the amazing world of physics!
A special thank you to Brian Greene for making these classes available to the general public as well as people with a mathematical background to allow everyone to sharpen up on their knowledge on some of the greatest topics in physics.
You think you’re ‘thinking,’
but you’re actually listening.

This is a love story. And, oddly enough, it starts with an interstellar space mission and a golden record.
Walt Disney & Salvador Dali - Destino 2003 (HD 1080p)
The film tells the story of Chronos, the personification of time and the inability to realize his desire to love for a mortal. The scenes blend a series of surreal paintings of Dali with dancing and metamorphosis. The target production began in 1945, 58 years before its completion and was a collaboration between Walt Disney and the Spanish surrealist painter, Salvador Dalí. Salvador Dali and Walt Disney Destiny was produced by Dali and John Hench for 8 months between 1945 and 1946. Dali, at the time, Hench described as a “ghostly figure” who knew better than Dali or the secrets of the Disney film. For some time, the project remained a secret. The work of painter Salvador Dali was to prepare a six-minute sequence combining animation with live dancers and special effects for a movie in the same format of “Fantasia.” Dali in the studio working on The Disney characters are fighting against time, the giant sundial that emerges from the great stone face of Jupiter and that determines the fate of all human novels. Dalí and Hench were creating a new animation technique, the cinematic equivalent of “paranoid critique” of Dali. Method inspired by the work of Freud on the subconscious and the inclusion of hidden and double images.
Dalí said: “Entertainment highlights the art, its possibilities are endless.” The plot of the film was described by. Dalí as “A magical display of the problem of life in the labyrinth of time.”
Walt Disney said it was “A simple story about a young girl in search of true love.”
