Shoemaker NEO Grant recipient

With a new round of grants now available, we talk to a couple of past recipients watching for Near Earth Objects on opposite sides of our planet. Bill Nye and Emily Lakdawalla are thrilled by Japan's dual successes with the IKAROS solar sail and return of Hayabusa from an asteroid. Bruce Betts and Mat will give away a Celestron weather station to the winner of the new space trivia contest. Bruce also knows what's up in the night sky.
