We Can’t Answer Your Science Questions, But We Know Who Can

If we had Bill Nye in the Tor.com office you probably wouldn’t see anything go up on this site, ever, so consumed would we be with asking him incessant science-related questions. (The first being “How do bow ties work?”)

We are not alone in this, so our ears perked up when we heard that the folks over at Quick & Dirty Tips are launching Everyday Einstein today, a portal designed specifically to answer your science questions. The questions will be tackled by Dr. Lee Falin (on the right in cartoon form), who holds a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Illinois and a Ph.D. in Genetics, Bioinformatics, and Computational Biology from Virginia Tech.

You can submit questions at the above link! After we ask why faster-than-light travel makes us so gassy, that is.

Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of Tor.com and wants to know why opening a quantum tunnel with an FTL factor of 36.7 recurring doesn’t work. Explain that, science.
