Whoops, about page check fail. I thought he was part of NASA through the Hubble thing. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 08:58, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

Fun fact: the Hubble is operated by the wp:Space Telescope Science Institute, which is not part of NASA (though it works closely with it). As our article says, NASA does engineering, not astronomy.--ZooGuard (talk) 09:06, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

Jet Joyride…[edit]

I'm a little confused about what this article is saying about him on Bad Universe. Could anyone try to elaborate on this, so it could be more perceivable. --HealableMarrow4 (talk) 09:06, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Since no-one from this wiki in the last five years has bothered to responded, I will: It sucks. It's just a Wannabe Mythbusters which is guilty of many of the things he criticizes others for in the science-entertainment industry, then uses the excuses of "it's not my fault - I had to do it or my show wouldn't have been made". Ie: He cares more about his own personal finances than science he preaches, or his intellectual integrity. — Unsigned, by: / talk
