Sailing Through Space with Bill Nye


  Last updated November 29, 2017 at 9:45 am


Bill Nye wants to travel through space using no fuel at all. We caught up with him at the International Astronautical Congress where he had the latest plans to do exactly that using the LightSail. An idea 400 years in the making and foreseen by Johannes Kepler, will the LightSail revolutionise space exploration?

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
