Bob Cassanova heads the NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts, which has just awarded twelve grants for development of projects that are on the edge of technology, including antimatter propulsion and a food replicator. Emily Lakdawalla tells us where old satellites go to die...often, nowhere at all. And Bruce Betts delivers his weekly What's Up! report on the night sky, and a new trivia contest. Space news, too.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
