Glen Nagle is the Education and Outreach Manger for the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex, part of the Deep Space Network that communicates with almost every spacecraft that leaves Earth orbit. We'll talk with Glen about this work from the Apollo program forward. Emily Lakdawalla explains The Norway Spiral, and Bill Nye the Science Guy wonders if we'll see rocket launches from Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Have you won the weekly space trivia contest?
