Even as rovers have been getting bigger, a group led by Planetary Society Director of Projects Bruce Betts has been investigating the advantages of tiny rolling robot explorers. He'll tell us about the work underway, and then return for our regular What's Up visit, including a new space trivia contest. We've also got Emily Lakdawalla, who is delighted to stand corrected, and we'll hear from Bill Nye about new evidence of organic molecules on Mars that is thirty-five years old.
