Bill Nye covers several topics in his weekly commentary, ranging from Congress' vote on the NASA budget to losing fingernails on spacewalks. Emily Lakdawalla reports on the effort to pick a spot on Mars for the Curiosity rover. Bruce Betts shares a the night sky, a new space trivia contest, and a cookie with Mat Kaplan.
