Planetary scientist Heidi Hammel and colleagues have revealed just how exciting big blue Uranus and Neptune really are. She'll spread the word, and talk about new astronomical technology that gives Earth-based telescopes their best views ever of these gas giants. Emily Lakdawalla traces the history of camera technology on space probes, while Bruce Betts paints a pretty picture of the night sky on What's Up. Space headlines, and a new trivia contest, too.
