Just a heads-up. I’m gonna be on the TV show “Encounters with the Unexplained” on (gasp) Pax TV on Sunday. The show delves into mysteries of the Universe, like was Noah’s ark real and were Moses’ toes really corny?
In this episode, it’s about the Apollo Moon hoax. I am of course on the side of Truth, Science and All Things Good. We taped me waving my hands and playing with my boss’s lunar lander model a few months ago, and I have no idea whether I will be edited into oblivion or not. I just hope I don’t look like a stuffed shirt.
You can find out more about the show on their website. The Pax website says the show airs at 10 p.m. Eastern/Pacific, but check your local listings.
BTW, When is your NEW BOOK coming out? Where can I get a copy? What’s the exact title? What’s the exact name of the Author? Can you provide me an Amazon or Barnes & Noble link? Or peraps you’ll tell me to Ask your local bookstore to order some!
Hey, I want to go into my local bookstore and get The Bad Astronomer’s new book. Really, what’s the name of the book? It would look really bad if I stormed in and said “I have to have this book. It’s by The Bad Astronomer! Yes, it’s about Astronomy-- now give it to me! Don’t ask me what it’s called, just give it to me!”
It seems to be called Bad Astronomy by Philip Plait. When you’re modest like TBA, you don’t want to get too pushy about your book but I often copy his GQ answers and show them to other people. There’s so much ignorance around today that I’m certain his book will be a valuable reference.
TBA, you rock. I just watched it, and much to my surprise, they gave you plenty of time to debunk the conspiracy theorists. Heck, even though PAX-TV tried to keep the “its all a big controversy and we’re not judging either side” thing, by the end the show they were basically saying “yep, folks, what you saw in 1969 is what you got. Why we wasted twenty minutes of your life with this consipiracy stuff is the real mystery.”
