In the vast reaches of Space, being of course by even a single degree can have catastrophic result. Watch Nye reveal the science behind interplanetary navigation.
Bill Nye takes a look at the similarities and differences between Jupiter and the Sun. Is Jupiter really like a piece of the Sun? Watch Nye shed some light on this tricky conundrum.
Watch as Nye shows you how NASA's Juno spacecraft will use a combination of cutting edge technology and the good old Doppler effect to take a peek deep inside Jupiter.
On October 9th 2013 the Juno spacecraft will re-enter Earth's orbit, and use the Earth's gravity to sling shot it all the way to Jupiter. Watch as Nye uses his trademark wit and charm to breathe life into the science behind this unprecedented event.
