But Why?: How Does NASA Drive The Mars Rover?

The discovery of seven new planets that could contain life has kids and adults pretty excited.

We can’t get to these planets yet but we do have tools to explore planets closer to home.

In this episode, St. Michael’s College astronomy professor John O’Meara answers how the Mars rover is driven from back here on earth?

Also in this episode, we head to the Rideau Canal in Ottawa to find out why ice floats and why  some ice is clear and some is not.

 

But Why is a show led by you, kids!

You ask the questions and we find the answers. It’s a big interesting world out there. On But Why, we tackle topics large and small, about nature, words, even the end of the world.
