Two previous attempts to get the Mars Climate Sounder to the red planet failed. Now Principal Investigator Dan McCleese anxiously awaits orbital insertion of the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. He tells us what the Mars Climate Sounder will do and how it will do it. Emily Lakdawalla's Q&A also talks about Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's and other cameras orbiting Mars, and Bruce Betts eclipses his past What's Up presentations with a new space trivia contest.
