Three Amigos: Bill Nye, Obama, Neil deGrasse Tyson take epic selfie

“So, an astrophysicist, an engineer, and the President of the United States walk into The Blue Room… “

Bill Nye tweeted these words Friday evening, along with a link to an epic presidential selfie he uploaded to Instagram.

On Friday, the White House hosted its first-ever Student Film Fest, which featured student videos highlighting how technology can transform education. Between screenings for the 16 short films, the three amigos managed to shoot the selfie showing Nye in a suit, complete with his trademark bowtie, standing next to President Obama and fellow scientific luminary Neil deGrasse Tyson.

“What an honor. And we even pulled off ‘The Presidential Selfie’ (!!)” Nye wrote on the Instagram post.

Attendees at the festival also got a sneak peek at the new  “Cosmos” TV series, hosted by Tyson and due to premiere on March 9.
