Ulysses Mission Operations Manager

After eighteen years in space, a trip to Jupiter and flights over the north and south poles of the Sun, the Ulysses mission is nearing its end. We talk with Mission Operations Manager Nigel Angold of the European Space Agency, who has been based at JPL in California all of those years. Emily Lakdawalla counts the minutes and seconds on Mars, while Bruce Betts and Mat Kaplan help a listener name his Saturn (car) after they explore the night sky in What's Up! Then a new space trivia contest begins.
