About This Episode

When we asked you to submit your Cosmic Queries about space and science for guest host Bill Nye the Science Guy, we nearly drowned in responses! Now, Bill and comic co-host Chuck Nice answer some of your most intriguing questions, from what to explore next with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, to whether plant life on exoplanets orbiting weaker red dwarf stars could still use photosynthesis. You’ll learn the best ways to change the trajectory of an Earth-bound asteroid or comet and which have come closest to Earth without hitting us – or too close for comfort like over Tunguska and Chelyabinsk. You’ll also find out if you can start a fire with sound or build a space elevator from the Earth to the Moon. Discover why we need aeronautical engineers, why the rate you age at isn’t always the same, and what Bill’s favorite flavor of ice cream is. Plus, get Bill’s take on dealing with climate change deniers and the anti-vaccine crowd.
