Over the past few weeks, you’ve heard rumors of a special celebrity interview, and a few mentions of bow ties. Well, here is the official announcement:
WE ARE INTERVIEWING BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY!
Paul and I are headed to Los Angeles to meet up with Bill at the Planetary Society in on July 25th!
Conducting interviews for the film can be intimidating enough as it is. We are getting deep with people about how space, and science fiction have really affected their lives. But this is BILL NYE! Bill helped raise a whole generation of us on science through his passion for outreach and…well…we are understandably nervous and excited all at once.
So here’s where we’d like your help!
We want to ensure we get the most out of our time with Bill and also provide you with a chance to be involved. We are asking the space/sci-fi community “What Would You Want to Ask Bill Nye”. We will use some of the questions we get in our interview.
What kind of questions are we looking for?
Questions that fit the themes of the film. Of course we are looking for questions about space, why space is so cool, and why Bill has taken lead at the Planetary Society. But Chasing also explores people’s personal connection to space/exploration, the legacy they want to leave in their field of study, why they feel compelled to engage/educate, how their field affects society, why what they do is important, and what inspired them to do what they do. So get creative!
How do you send your question?
Tweet it to us @chasingatlantis, write as a reply to this blog post, or post it on our Facebook Page. If we use your question in the interview, we’ll let you know and post the video of Bill’s reply. We will consider questions sent to us all the way until the morning of July 25th when we’re en route to the Planetary Society
Thanks for helping us take advantage of this amazing opportunity! (BILL! BILL! BILL! BILL!)
