Back in my high school days, I was really into science. In particular, chemistry.
No, not that kind of chemistry… Periodic tables, electron shells, iconic and covalent bonds, stoichiometry, I could go on but I don’t want to bore you 😉 I was and still am a massive science nerd. And with that in mind, here is our Top Nerdy Ten Nerds of Twitter (Episode II) – Science Edition!
1. Bill Nye (@BillNye)
What kind of list would this be without someone I watched growing up. Also not only does he talk science and rocks the bowtie, he’s a Trekkie too!

His tweets speak for themselves.
If you never make mistakes then you are not on the frontier of discovery, for there is where mistakes are made all the time.

10. Chris Hadfield (@Cmdr_Hadfield)
Space-traveling troubadour. I get to see him perform with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in April. Be jealous. Be very jealous.
