Planetary Radio kicks off its broadcast run with Executive Director Louis Friedman talking to host Mat Kaplan about the origin of the Planetary Society, and how it continues its mission more than two decades later. Lou also discusses our recent success in keeping NASA's Pluto mission alive, and the Society's advocacy of many other initiatives.

On What's Up?, our regular feature with Planetary Society Director of Projects Bruce Betts, you'll hear about the woman who was hit by a meteorite, and lived to tell the tale. Dr. Betts also tells us what's up and worth looking at in the night sky this week, and how young people can become part of one of the Society's most exciting projects ever, Red Rover Goes To Mars. Emily Lakdawalla takes us to faraway Pluto with her Random Space Facts.
