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?

Horrible.
1 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Breathtakingly bad. The cognitive dissonance cup run over flowing. Bill Nye has not always been this bad. His contributions 20 years ago in educating young children is admirable. I can remember my nephew watching his shows and thinking there is merit in what he is watching. None of that is present in this film.
