Bill Nye’s new webseries explores NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter
The Science Guy is back to do doing what he does best.
Teaming up with NASA’s Juno Spacecraft team, the Science Guy launched a new webseries called Why With Nye this week. Nye will explore Jupiter and the team’s mission as the Juno spacecraft returned towards Earth, only to be shot back into space due to the momentum.
Donning his signature bowtie and lab coat, Nye is back to his kooky TV persona as he explains in short segments everything we need to know about Jupiter and Juno from that “Earth fly by,” to solar-powered space travel and what weather the spacecraft can expect once it gets to Jupiter.
We’ve had an increased fascination with space since the Curiosity rover landed on Mars last year, and the government shutdown makes it even more crucial for Nye to help boost interest in NASA’s work. The Juno spacecraft is expected to arrive in Jupiter’s orbit by 2016.
For fans who have been aching for a revival of Bill Nye the Science Guy for years, this is as good as we’re gonna get. Nye has yet to comment on whether he plans to return to hosting a TV show, although he has continued to advocate science education since Bill Nye the Science Guy ended.
Why With Nye is an eight-part series with THNKR. With five segments currently out, there’s still plenty of time to catch up before the rest of the series airs.
