Today at work, I met a guy named Bill Nye. You might know him as the science guy.
A few weeks earlier, I had learned that he and Robert Picardo were planning to stop by Goddard for a quick trip to check out the James Webb Space Telescope. Webb, by the way, is NASA’s next-generation space telescope set to launch in 2018. It’s absolutely gorgeous.
Anyway, one of my coworkers asked if I’d be able to snap a few photos during their visit. I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to meet my childhood hero, so of course, I said yes. Bill even asked if I wanted a selfie after he finished filming! What an incredible day.
