We check in with Linda Spilker two or three times a year to learn the latest from Saturn, its moons and its rings. Bill Nye has kudos for team that tested an inflatable heat shield. Emily Lakdawalla's Q&A tells us more about the recent Jupiter impact, and Bruce Betts takes a What's Up! look up at the night sky and sees the Southern California mountains on fire. Also, your tweets to the aliens, and a new space trivia contest.

Comments:

No trivia contest spoilers please!
