Why do you guys work through the night?
Bill Nye

Our rovers are solar powered and they don't care if it is daytime or nighttime here in Pasadena or in Houston. They only care if it is daytime or nighttime on Mars. Right now, let me check, right now it is 10:30 p.m. on Mars. The rover is asleep. I've been working all day. The rover has been working all day. I should be asleep too.
