Though once known as the loveable “Science Guy” on his ’90s PBS show, Bill Nye has spent much of his career trying to change the world. There was his 2014 debate with Ken Ham where he shed light on the facts of creationism, which coincided with the release of his book, Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation. Many times, he has made scientific contributions to space exploration, such as his development of a small sundial that was included in the Mars Exploration Rover missions in the early-2000s, not to mention the time he spent as Vice President of the Planetary Society from 2005 to 2010. Most recently, Nye’s turned his focus to climate change, which he believes is the greatest threat to humanity today. “I want everybody to get to work on mitigating climate change and making it less of a problem for future generations. I’m trying to save the world here, people!” says Nye, which will be fully documented in his next book, Unstoppable: Science to Change the World, that’s planned to be released later this year.
For the Fall 2015 issue of Resource Magazine themed “The Future,” we teamed up with Nye to discover the role of image-making in the progression of the human race, and how it can be leveraged to solve global issues. Additionally, it has been said that the more you know about science, the more you can predict about the future, so we piqued Nye’s brain of scientific knowledge to determine where imaging technology is headed, while celebrating the exponential levels of innovation we’ve already experienced throughout the past decade.
