Spacefest is the annual celebration of all things space, including space art, memorabilia, and the many astronauts who attend. Planetary Radio visited the recent gathering in Pasadena to talk with planetary scientist and space artist Dan Durda, Marc Rayman of the Dawn asteroid mission, and a guy who calls himself the Space Cowboy. We also eavesdrop on Apollo 17 Commander Gene Cernan and his lifelong fan, Griffith Observatory Curator Laura Danly. Bill Nye introduces a statement of support for NASA’s Asteroid Redirect Mission, while Emily Lakdawalla reveals beautiful new images of Earth and Mars. You may win a littleBits Space Kit in the What’s Up space trivia contest.
