Space spinoff technology is all around us, saving lives, improving environmental quality and generating profits. Daniel Lockney edits NASA's annual Spinoff report that is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Bill Nye says an asteroid headed our way would quickly rekindle US interest in space. What's Up looks to the solar system's most famous Martian for the new space trivia contest, and looks forward to the Perseid meteor shower.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
