Bill Blair

Astrophysicist

The Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer is dead, and astrophysicist Bill Blair helped to kill it. He tells us why, and shares the wonder of this very successful eight-year mission. Emily Lakdawalla explains why the New Horizons Pluto mission probably won't shed light on the mysterious Pioneer anomaly, and Bruce Betts gives Mat Kaplan a What's Up! look at the night sky and announces a new space trivia contest. And remember, we're celebrating Planetary Radio's fifth anniversary.
