The rumors of a message from an extraterrestrial intelligence have been greatly exaggerated, according to Dan Werthimer. He updates us on this and lots of other recent developments, including a recent SETI summit at Harvard. Emily Lakdawalla is in sync with moons that always face one way, and Bruce Betts has another What's Up! look at the sky, along with his latest space trivia contest.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
