Jupiter got another black eye on July 19. Heidi Hammel returns to tell how astronomers around the world jumped into action, even turning the newly-refurbished Hubble Space Telescope toward the big planet. Bill Nye likes the idea of gas stations in space. Emily Lakdawalla returns from maternity leave with a brand new Q&A segment, and Bruce Betts says you might still catch the Perseid meteors if you hurry. A new What's Up space trivia contest, too.
