Everyone’s favorite Science Guy is ready to explain why wearing a mask is so important.

Bill Nye went to TikTok to share two informative videos on the science behind different types of masks – proving that some face covers are much more effective than others.

The 64-year-old television personality clarified one thing, however, when saying to viewers, “It’s a matter of life and death.”

The rules of science! Bill Nye The Science Guy published an experiment on Wednesday demonstrating the importance of masks via TikTok

“Why does everyone in the scientific community want you to wear masks?” He asked.

“Face masks … keep particles from my respiratory system from getting into the air and getting into your respiratory system,” said Bill.

His experiment was simple, using a candle to show how effective different masks or masks are at blocking these particles.

He first tried his experiment with just a knitted scarf, which – while elegant – did little to block particles flying from Mr. Nye’s mouth.

A simple two-layer cloth face mask, on the other hand, barely moves the candle flame.

“If you wear one, you protect yourself and those around you,” said Bill.

Then he started playing with the serious stuff, releasing a medical grade N-95 mask – which did nothing to sway the flame.

Bill went on to explain the vital importance of wearing the mask, telling viewers, “The reason we want you to wear a mask is to protect yourself, of course.”

“But the main reason we want you to wear a mask is to protect me and particles from your respiratory system from getting into my respiratory system!”

“Everyone is literally a matter of life and death,” he said. “And when I use the word” literally “, I mean” literally “.

“So when you’re in public, wear a mask,” he pleads before wrapping the clip.

Don't be a fool: Bill explained that `` the reason we want you to wear a mask is to protect yourself, of course.  But the main reason why we want you to wear a mask is to protect me and particles from your respiratory system from entering my respiratory system!
