Yale exoplanet hunter Debra Fischer is about to begin looking for worlds in the star system that is nearest to Earth. She'll tell us about new technology enabling this effort, and how you can join the search. Space poetry? Why not, says Emily Lakdawalla, who won't be going to Barsoom anytime soon. Bill Nye says you can be an official Space Geek, while Bruce Betts and Mat Kaplan can help you find your way around the night sky and win a Planetary Radio t-shirt in the space trivia contest.
