Bill Nye is one of the contestants on the next season of Dancing With the Stars. I suppose dancing is applied physics and mechanics (Bill is a mechanical engineer).

He'll be up against some tough competition such as Nicole Polizzi (better known as Snooki), Leah Remini (if the Scientologists don't get her first), Christina Milian and Keyshawn Johnson.

He really needs to watch out for Elizabeth Berkley, who has extensive dance experience.
