Eric Siegel is the director and chief content officer of the New York Hall of Science, and has been involved with art and science museums for over 25 years. He worked as the factual consultant for Here Comes Science, the first They Might Be Giants album to have a "fact-checker." One of his most notable contributions to the album was pointing out the necessity for an addendum to "Why Does The Sun Shine?", because the Sun is not made of gas, as stated by the song, but plasma. This was corrected in "Why Does The Sun Really Shine?".
