Interview with Bill Nye: The Sundial Guy Astrobiology Magazine

Early next year, the first interplanetary sundials will be tested on the surface of Mars if all goes according to plan. The sundials, inspired by a flash from Bill Nye, the Science Guy, also will allow scientists to calibrate the pink color of the martian sky. Astrobiology Magazine interviewed Nye on how the sundials came to ride on the Mars science package, called Athena.
