Longtime Sagan collaborator Ann Druyan talks about her late husband's legacy and ongoing influence. Emily Lakdawalla's Q&A explains why we study meteorites on Mars. Bruce Betts and Mat Kaplan are also celebrating on this week's What's Up, and have another Cosmos 1 Team jacket to give away in the space trivia contest. Bill Nye is on assignment in Washington.
