Bill Nye "the science guy" has been in the news quite a bit as of late. A few weeks ago, he clashed with Fox News Channel pundit Tucker Carlson over global warming.
Nye is back in the news again. This time, he's addressing someone at a slightly higher pay grade than fellow bowtie aficionado Carlson.
On behalf of his colleagues at The Planetary Society, Nye has sent an open letter in video format to President Donald Trump.
In the five-minute video, Nye cordially invites Trump to sit and listen to Nye and the society's space recommendations.
The video might prove to be a bit long and science-y for Trump's taste. On account of the length and detail of Nye's request, he speaks as slowly as possible.
As he communicates the society's requests, Nye also heaps ton of advanced praise on Trump for making these decisions. He also assures Trump numerous times that both the society, and space exploration in general, are bipartisan ideals.
Will Trump take the bait and give additional funds to NASA? Nye and his colleagues sure hope so.
