A segment on the home-shopping network was recently selling some science that we aren’t buying.
QVC host Shawn Killinger and designer Isaac Mizrahi were debating whether the Moon is a planet or a star. Here is a snippet of that conversation:
Killinger: “Isn’t the moon a star?”
Mizrahi : “No, the Moon is a planet, darling.”
Killinger: “Don’t look at me like that! The sun is a star!”
Mizrahi: “I don’t know what the Sun is.”
The Moon, the Earth’s only natural satellite, is neither, by the way.
Maybe the next segment will be selling science textbooks.
