There is so much wonder and joy in science, about understanding how the world works and why the world is the way it is. It's not just for academics. It is a thing that's available to everyone.
Newton had a very good description of gravity, back in the day, and then Einstein came along and dug a little bit deeper. Science is like peeling an onion. You go deeper and deeper and deeper, and it doesn't stop. It's not like you will get to a right answer.
People think of science like somehow that's the answer, and that it's all about right answers, but science is a lens that we look at the world through.
When I was acting, as a hobby, I would devour popular science books and keep up-to-date about what was going on in the science community. And then, suddenly my hobby became my job. I didn't one day say, "I'm not acting. I'm now going to be a science person."
I've found the thing in life that I adore, which is working in science television. It's just a big adventure, really.

At the heart of science is experimentation. Science doesn't care what you think. What's important is experimenting and actually working stuff out.

In my lifetime, the population of the world has doubled.
We've only had aircrafts for a hundred years, and yet look at us. So, I've become absolutely fascinated by this strange, bizarre world of airports, air travel and transportation. It's interesting.
I've never felt scared of flight, ever. It's really weird. I don't know. They stick a gin and tonic in your hands and I just think, "Life is good!"
I'd missed science and what it was all about because I was too busy trying to think of other things, when I was at school. I was too busy trying to be James Dean.
I love being in America. I love America. I absolutely adore working in America. I'm at my happiest when I'm in the States.
Those people who are scared of science or are a bit dismissive of science tend to not really understand what science really is, which is the most beautiful, most elegant and most creative way of looking at the world.
I was awful at science at school, as a subject, because I didn't have the discipline. But, I was awful at music, as well, and I loved music.
I wasn't naturally a scientist, but I was always fascinated by how the world worked and why things were the way they were.
The thing I loved, particularly, was the mystery of science and the idea that science doesn't know all the answers, but it is a process of finding out. It's not like science will give you the right answer and science knows everything. I love the mysteries of it.
I'm not an academic, but I'm someone who has a great passion for science and wants to convey the idea that science is for everyone.
I was very much the laymen, trying to find stuff out because I'm curious about the world.
