One of the bonuses of our set visit to The Big Bang Theory was that we got the chance to talk to co-creator and executive producer Bill Prady about how the show came to be, and how they get the science right in every episode. Since much of what we do is about communicating science to the public, we were naturally interested in how real science was worked into what is primarily a comedy.
To supplement our podcast interview with Bill, Blueshift’s Maggie Masetti wrote a web feature for NASA.gov.
More About The Big Bang Theory
If you’re just tuning in, in the course of writing a feature about the WMAP beach ball, we were invited to visit the set of the Big Bang Theory to take a picture of the one they had on set.
- The article that started it all has an interview with Britt Griswold, who designed the beach ball.
- Just use the Big Bang tag for all of Blueshift’s entries on “The Big Bang Theory”.
- We have more photos of Big Bang Theory set on our Flickr account, and you can also read about the NASA things we brought that were featured on the show.
- We also love Dr. David Saltzberg’s blog which discusses the science associated with each episode. (He’s the show’s science advisor.)
