They are big, beautiful, and blue, but Uranus and Neptune are also often ignored. We learn why they deserve more attention from Heidi Hammel, Co-Director of Research for the Space Science Institute. Speaking of colors, that is the topic of Emily Lakdawalla's Q&A this week. And Bruce Betts knows which planets to look for in the night sky and which ones are rude. And although we forgot (gasp!) to announce our new space trivia contest, it's here online for those looking to test their planetary I.Q.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
