Special coverage of the Juno mission launch for Jupiter, with Bill Nye reporting from the Kennedy Space Center and Emily Lakdawalla on the spacecraft's camera. JPL scientist Slava Turyshev has news about the Pioneer Anomaly that may begin to indicate an explanation for the 40-year old spacecraft not being where they ought to be. Bruce Betts and Mat Kaplan get the buzz from a new source on What's Up, but a few bugs won't keep them from offering a new space trivia contest.
