WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A scientist famous among children of all ages is making a stop at Purdue University. Bill Nye, also known as Bill Nye the Science Guy, will speak at the Elliott Hall of Music on Nov. 8.

Nye will speak on the cosmos and space discovery as a part of Purdue's celebration of the 150th anniversary. 

Millions of children have watched his live action science program "Bill Nye the Science Guy." In recent years, Nye has continued to promote science and learning while being the CEO of The Planetary Society.

“We humans have always looked to the night sky and pondered our place in the cosmos,” Nye said in a June blog post “Reaching Higher for Space.” “Indeed, the power of the stars to inspire and transform us stretches deep into our mythic past when constellations framed our understanding of the universe.”

The event is at 7 p.m. in the Elliott Hall of Music. Tickets are $10 for Purdue students and those under 18. All others are $15.

Tickets are available at the Stewart Center box office at 765-494-3933 or 800-914-SHOW.
