Planetary scientist Carle Pieters is Principal Investigator for the Moon Mineralogy Mapper, now circling the moon on India's first spacecraft to venture beyond low Earth orbit. Bill Nye the Planetary Guy on grease guns, tool bags and getting the job done in space. Emily Lakdawalla's Q&A tells us why even radio antennas shouldn't look at the sun, and Bruce Betts is up on the night sky. Bruce and Mat Kaplan also offer up another space trivia contest.
