We celebrate one (Earth) year of Mars Exploration Rovers on the red planet with Principal Investigator Steve Squyres and Project Manager Jim Erickson. Emily Lakdawalla goes where no spacecraft has gone before, and Bruce Betts has a new trivia contest on this week's What's Up! Space headlines, too.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
