Phil Plait TED Bio:

After spending a decade working on Hubble Space Telescope data and promoting science from a half dozen different NASA astronomical satellites, Phil Plait has gained a unique perspective on science and how the public understands it. He's written books on scientific misconceptions, cosmic catastrophes and even a collection of satirical nerd insults, each showcasing his passion for science as well as his sense of humor. His popular blog, Bad Astronomy -- hosted at different times by Discover Magazine and Slate, and now at SYFY Wire -- covers a lot of ground, from interesting scientific events here on Earth all the way out to the edge of the observable universe. He's given talks about science (and its nemesis, anti-science) around the world, has appeared in dozens of TV shows (including writing and hosting Crash Course Astronomy, a 46-part introduction to astronomy on YouTube). He lives in rural Boulder County, Colorado, with his family, two horses and four pet goats.
