A special interview with Lou Friedman and David Warmflash, who reported in from the Kennedy Space Center. They had just witnessed the opening of the container that carried the 'Growth of Bacterial Biofilm on inorganic Surfaces during Spaceflight' panspermia experiment to and from Earth orbit aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia on her last journey. You'll hear their up-to-the-minute report. There's also a new trivia contest from Bruce Betts that has everything to do with everyone's favorite comet.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
