JPL research scientist Slava Turyshev returns to provide an update on the Pioneer Anomaly project. With just a couple of obstacles left to overcome, almost thirty years of mission data are almost ready for release to the scientific community. If successful, we may soon learn why Pioneers 10 and 11 aren't where they should be. Will we be forced to reconsider the laws of physics? Emily Lakdawalla reluctantly considers the end of the Cassini mission, and Bruce Betts joins Mat Kaplan for a What's Up review of the night sky, a new space trivia contest, and some cheesy science fiction impressions.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
