The author of Forever Barbie has now created an intensely personal and insightful reflection on the evolving culture of space exploration, Astro Turf: The Private Life of Rocket Science. We talk with her about this American institution. Emily Lakdawalla says planets aren't as round as you many think in this week's Q&A. Bruce Betts offers mercurial advice, and hands out another Planetary Radio t-shirt to the latest trivia contest winner.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
