6:45 am
range anxiety. the leaf gets fewer than a hundred miles on a charge. and he usually only drives about 40 miles. uncertainties about distance and where they can plug in away from home has many worried about being stranded. across the country, cities are installing more charging stations and an -s say as with any new technology, billing main stream interest takes time. >> we are going to increase. no matter what. and then how much is still a question. >> reporter: there's no question this driver is sold. and says his next car will be all electric too. >> i feel privileged to be driving it. >> reporter: fox news. >> it does sound better. >> dedicated. and you can hear from the sound, there's like no sound. >> a coworker has a chevy volt. that car is awesome. >> yeah. >> and it's quiet. you don't hear the engine.

6:49 am
>> i wonder if their head is there. we get a lot of space questions. >> we do. >> especially fascinating by it. >> and i have since i was a little kid. i am fascinated by space. and it's truly amazing to me. i understand why there's no sound in space. but it just seems strange. do you want to do the honors. >> why don't i start and you can take over. >> okay. >> here's the deal, in order for sound to travel, it needs matter to bump into. and here on earth, it has air molecules to move the sound away. what it is, it's waves. here on planet earth, we have an atmosphere, molecules for the sound to bounce. as i am talking to you, the sound hits one atom to another and moving through space here on planet earth here. >> the molecules themselves are what is allowing that sound
6:50 am
wave to move from vocal cords or skin or whatever vibrating in there and moving the sound across the air to your ear. and you know, if i bang my fist down and there, you know, there's air all around us. >> and moves -- >> yeah, and carries all around. in space, there is virtually no air. there's very little air. but you know, it's so spread out that the molecules aren't close together. so the sound waves can't travel from molecule to molecule. >> interesting. space stuff and you know, you look up and see the star, you would think there would be enough going on that you would. >> there's not. the weird thing and it seems, it seems like, well, that can't be, but it is. and tucker found a drawing. for example, let's say your in space and let's say there's an
6:51 am
astronaut outside of the spaceship in space and there's an astronaut inside. and let's say a meteor hit the spaceship. right? the astronaut inside would hear a boom. on the outside, he would hear nothing because there's no -- >> the molecules inside where the oxygen is to breathe. >> isn't that weird. >> that is weird. >> this is deep stuff for 7:00 in the morning. >> i said earlier, let's say you were able to set off a bomb in space. >> oh. >> so when the explosion occurred, it would just, you wouldn't hear a noise, you would just see all that stuff. >> that is fascinating. >> unless some was able to reach us, then we would hear that, i guess? >> you mean on planet earth? >> right. >> well then you wouldn't be in space. >> but it could travel this far and then we would hear it? >> i know, all this deep talk.
