WALL*E Creator

Can lovable little WALL*E of the new Disney Pixar film help excite young people about space exploration and point the way to the future of robotics? We talk with WALL*E creator Andrew Stanton and CalTech physicist/robotocist Wolfgang Fink. Bill Nye is bursting with enthusiasm about the first observation of a supernova explosion from the beginning, and Bruce Betts conducts a tour of the night sky and gives away a WALL*E Wii game in the new space trivia contest.
