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.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
