This School Bus Takes Kids on a Virtual Trip to Mars

5 JUN 2016

Mars is the place to be right now - it's coming out of a 400,000-year-old ice age, and NASA just detected oxygen in its atmosphere. Although we've still got a long way to go before we can start planning an actual Martian colony, this school bus is taking kids on their own tour of the red planet. 

We wish we were back in school so we could try it out!
