The Quiz: Which scientist patented new ballet shoes to protect dancers’ feet?
Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Explanation : Bill Nye, a.k.a. the Science Guy, has advanced science in many ways — and, in one instance, his work improved the lives of ballet dancers. After seeing how hard ballet is on dancers’ feet, Nye created new shoes that supported them better. The shoes feature a sturdier toe box that has more space between the toes and the floor to reduce strain and pain while dancing.
