Will this new probe find Earth-sized planets in the so-called 'habitable zone?' We talk with William Borucki, Science Principal Investigator for the mission. Bill Nye is keeping an eye on this summer's test of the X37, while Bruce Betts has an eye on the night sky. He and Mat Kaplan also serve up a new space trivia contest.

No trivia contest spoilers please!
