Sci Fri: Travis Taylor and Rocket City Rednecks travel to Mars in new National Geographic Channel series

Martian science fiction author Travis Taylor and four other “backwoods” guys from Huntsville, Alabama, home to NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center and the birthplace of the U.S. space program, who love to shoot guns and drink beer, apply their humor, ingenuity, and advanced engineering and physics degrees to creatively solve real-world scientific problems in the new National Geographic Channel series Rocket City Rednecks.

Episodes include “Rednecks on the Red Planet,” in which Travis and the boys convert a beat-up old RV into a simulated interplanetary spaceship outfitted with a satellite control station, basic supplies and a “pee reactor” that converts urine into drinking water!
