It has been seven months since the Genesis probe smacked into the Utah desert. We hear good news from mission team member Roger Wiens about recovery of its unprecedented samples of the solar wind, now underway in Houston. Emily Lakdawalla wonders about the mystery of Saturn's moon Iapetus. Bruce Betts adds a bit of fashion consulting to his What's Up! preview of the sky, and space trivia contest.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
