Next year will be a big one for science — July 20 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing — and Nick Graham is all set to pounce.
For the past three years, the designer has had a collaboration with Bill Nye the Science Guy for a collection of bow ties. And when the latest iteration makes its appearance, the ties will be part of what Graham said will be “a big, happy mashup of space.”
In a preview at his New York studio Thursday, Graham and Nye showed off the latest looks, which include the first moonbeam print, planets, various weather symbols and even an astronaut in a space suit with an American flag.
“They’re all science-themed,” Nye said. “We’re trying to get people excited about science.”
He’s also trying to get people excited about the launch of the paperback version of his book “Everything All At Once,” which is intended to offer up some life lessons to help people “think like a science guy, solve any problem and make a better world.”

Nye joked that by being offered in paperback, it meant that the book actually sold enough copies in hardcover
