Bill Nye Explains Magnetism and How Magnets Work

A fan wants an explanation of magnets and magnetism, but little did he know his Cosmic Query would be answered by none other than Bill Nye the Science Guy. Bill was our guest host for this episode, along with guest NASA astronaut Mike Massimino and comic co-host Eugene Mirman. Find out how Earth's magnetic field arises and helps protect our atmosphere, and why Mars' lack of magnetic field contributed to its loss of atmosphere. You'll hear about MAVEN, Michael Faraday, Eugene's plan to terraform other planets and... Insane Clown Posse?
