Phil Plait’s Bad Universe

My old friend Phil Plait has kept tweeting and talking about a Sooper Sekrit Project he has been working on for a while.  I kind of figured it was probably a television project for the Discovery Channel and it has finally been revealed: Phil Plait’s Bad Universe.  A trailer has been released.

Show air dates are not on there yet, but I will be sure to update this when I find out.  If you don’t have his books Bad Astronomy or Death from the Skies, check them out.  Both are geared toward a general audience and a very entertaining reads.

I have known Phil for years and worked with him on education programs for the Swift satellite and the Fermi Gamma Ray Space Telescope (formerly known as GLAST).

Congratulations, Phil.  Just remember, although you may be becoming a television star, I still have a lower Bacon Number than you!
