My father was a very good Boy Scout. He was very skilled with knots, and he showed me how to tie a bow tie.


Teaching creationism in science class as an alternative to evolution is inappropriate.


As you may know, I am a mechanical engineer.


I really believe in science. It is a faith. It is a reverence akin to religion. But as we always say, it's different from religion in that, as near as we can tell, it exists outside of us. It has an objective quality, the process of science.


There's nothing I believe in more strongly than getting young people interested in science and engineering, for a better tomorrow, for all humankind.


Evolution is a theory, and it's a theory that you can test. We've tested evolution in many ways. You can't present good evidence that says evolution is not a fact.


When we see the shadow on our images, are we seeing the time 11 minutes ago on Mars? Or are we seeing the time on Mars as observed from Earth now? It's like time travel problems in science fiction. When is now; when was then?


I worked at comedy clubs - if I can use the term 'work' - for several years. I middled at one point. I never made it; I was never a headliner. I never made enough time to write enough good material, in my opinion.


The more you find out about the world, the more opportunities there are to laugh at it.


Climate change is happening, humans are causing it, and I think this is perhaps the most serious environmental issue facing us.


I used to play ultimate Frisbee, and I just got a reputation for making popcorn at parties. I don't mean to brag on myself, but I make the popcorn in the pot, and it comes out fine every time.


Science is the key to our future, and if you don't believe in science, then you're holding everybody back.


The information you get from social media is not a substitute for academic discipline at all.


I hope climate science becomes the big thing. And then what I want is electrical engineers to solve the world's energy problems, energy distribution problems. I want mechanical engineers to make better transportation systems. I want chemical engineers to develop better solar panels, and so on.


Science is the best idea humans have ever had. The more people who embrace that idea, the better.


If you want grown-ups to recycle, just tell their kids the importance of recycling, and they'll be all over it.


If NASA is to reach beyond the Moon and someday reach Mars, it must be relieved of the burden of launching people and cargo to low earth orbit. To do that, we must invest more in commercial spaceflight.


Humor is everywhere in that there's irony in just about anything a human does.


Burning carbon-based substances like oil, gas, and especially coal, produces billions of tons of extra carbon dioxide each year. Methane gas from cows and pigs and other animals on our large farms ends up in the atmosphere as well, trapping more of the sun's energy as heat.


NASA is an engine of innovation and inspiration as well as the world's premier space exploration agency, and we are well served by politicians working to keep it that way, instead of turning it into a mere jobs program, or worse, cutting its budget.
