With a new American administration about to take over, we'll spend two weeks looking at where space policy in the USA may go. Space activist and Obamanaut Tim Bailey has been examining Barack Obama's space policy statement. Next week, the new Roadmap to Space with Planetary Society Executive Director Dr. Lou Friedman. Bill Nye salutes India's Chandrayaan-1. Emily Lakdawalla sizes up rocks that can make it to Earth's surface. Bruce Betts and Mat Kaplan trip the light fantastic in the night sky, and invite participation in both the new space trivia contest and the Planetary Radio sixth anniversary competition.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
