Here at Nerdist, we are huge fans of the based-in-real-science show Miles from Tomorrowland on Disney Junior — and it turns out we aren’t alone! Bowtie-sporting science educator Bill Nye will be the special guest on this week’s episode “The Neptune Adventure” — airing May 15th at 9:00AM ET/PT. This week in the continuing adventures of the Callisto family — a malfunction causes the research station to flip over and sink during a field trip to Neptune!
But does that malfunction mean all is lost? You’ll have to wait and find out if Bill Nye as Professor Rubicon can help make things right.
Miles From Tomorrowland is an intergalactic family adventure series, which charts the outer space missions of young adventurer Miles Callisto and his family, as they help connect the galaxy on behalf of the Tomorrowland Transit Authority. Each episode features unique space and science facts woven into the storylines. They’re able to base their stories in real science thanks to the help of Dr. Randii Wessen, Lead Study Architect for the JPL’s Innovation Foundry’s A-Team. Wessen specializes in advanced concepts for NASA’s future planetary and astrophysical missions. And clearly for helping make the Callistos lives more adventurous! To read more about the creator of the show and some of the science behind it – check out our interview with creator Sascha Paladino.
Bonus: Here’s a video of Bill Nye showing Chris Hardwick how to tie a bowtie. Enjoy this valuable lesson!
