by Perry Michael Simon on August 3, 2012
Hey, what are you up to on Saturday night? I know what you SHOULD be doing: You should be planted in front of your TV set watching BBC America for a night of cool science stuff, including the new Nerdist special and another looking at the Science of Doctor Who.
The Nerdist “Tribute to Science” includes Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, Danica McKellar, Cara Santa Maria, and arm wrestling… yeah, you’re in. And the Doctor Who special has Steven Moffat, Alison Haislip, Chloe Dykstra, Kurt Braunohler, Scott Adsit, and Dr. Michio Kaku, among many others, discussing how science fiction meets science fact.
Here’s a promo for the Doctor Who special:
