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?

A great story with a great purpose
1 February 2018 | by travmanwilliamsSee all my reviews

This movie was absolutely fantastic, Very well done. I had a smile ear to ear from start to finish. A big thank you from Rachel and I to Bill and the whole team for letting us see a new side of this amazing man. If anything at all, I have a new level of respect for Bill and only hope to see him succeed further. All the best in the coming days!
