The NIAC is charged with identifying and encouraging concepts in space science and engineering that no other agency will touch. We talk with its Director, Robert Cassanova. Emily Lakdawalla demonstrates that time is a relative concept, especially in space, and Bruce Betts provides yet another space trivia contest in What's Up!


No trivia contest spoilers please!
