Project Manager Jim Graf and Project Scientist Rich Zurek visit our studio to talk about their powerful new spacecraft. MRO will return the best ever images of the entire red planet. Emily Lakdawalla says we're running out of big Near Earth Objects to discover, and that's a good thing. Bruce Betts is never lost in space, or at a loss for a space trivia contest question on What's Up. News headlines, too.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
