Here's the second half of our December show recorded in front of a live audience. It has much more about Opportunity nearing its 8th anniversary exploring the Red Planet, and about Curiosity, the Mars Science Laboratory. Two more spacey songs from KJ Williams, and the big finish of Emily Lakdawalla's proof that she is not covering up evidence of aliens in our solar system! You'll also hear a brand new What's Up segment from Bruce Betts and Mat Kaplan, featuring the space trivia contest.
