Former NASA Associate Administrator for Space Science Wes Huntress brings his expertise to two topics this week, the just announced resignation of Sean O'Keefe, and the selection of instruments for a huge new rover, the Mars Science Laboratory. Emily Lakdawalla considers the weird days and nights on Venus, and Bruce Betts presents plenty of planets and a new trivia contest on What's Up! Space headlines, too.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
