Spacewalking astronaut Tom Jones has written several books, including The Complete Idiot's Guide To NASA. We talk to him about that work, and the shuttle's Return to Flight. Emily Lakdawalla soothes fear about Deep Impact's impact. Bruce Betts lets us know What's Up in the night sky, and offers a special space humor contest.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
