Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Project Scientist Rich Zurek returns as the spacecraft is gradually moving into its orbit just 300 kilometers (180 miles) above Mars. The great pictures have already begun to arrive. Emily Lakdawalla's Q&A returns to Saturn's moon Titan to explain just how miraculous the Huygens probe was. Bruce Betts offers a new space trivia contest, supergiant stars, and interstellar dryer lint.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
