A few months ago I wrote a post about how to visualize 1 billion (and how there are more stars than grains of sand on this planet). While writing the piece I contacted the great Dr. Phil Plait, a former NASA astronomer and writer of the brilliant "Bad Astronomy" blog (where he also featured my post), and got some great advice. Well, Dr. Plait is now going to the big time and I would be remiss if I didn't advertise his new TV show: "Bad Universe"
Looks like Myth Busters meets Cosmos! I'm super excited for this and want to again say "Congrats Dr. Plait! You've got a viewer right here. Keep up the great work".
