In Unraveling the Mystery: A Big Bang Farewell, Galecki and Cuoco will lead fans on a trip down memory lane, sharing some of the best-kept backstage secrets and personal memories from the past 12 years.

The series, which debuted in 2007 and airs in syndication around the world, has received 52 Emmy Award nominations with 10 wins to date and seven Golden Globe nominations.

In addition to centering many of its episodes in the worlds of science and technology, The Big Bang Theory enjoys support from the scientific community at large, including having a bee species (Euglossa bazinga), a jellyfish species (Bazinga Rieki) and a monkey at the Columbus Zoo (Dr. Sheldon Cooper) named in the show’s honor.

In 2015 the first-ever UCLA scholarship was created by and named for a television series, The Big Bang Theory Scholarship Endowment, which supports undergraduate students in need of financial aid who are pursuing their higher education and majoring in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
