Houston, We Have A Podcast

If you love science, the NASA podcast, Houston We Have A Podcast, is fascinating.

The episode entitled “Drive Like A Martian” discusses the history of tires in space and the more current problem of designing a tire that will function on Mars. On the surface, it seems like a simple problem, but when you consider that gravity, atmospheric pressure, and lack of air all affect how the tire works, you’ll quickly realize that a simple tire is actually an interesting puzzle. You will be amazed by how these scientists tackle the problem. This podcast is definitely worth a listen.
