Planetary Radio returned to the Crawford Family Forum for live coverage of the LADEE launch on September 6th. With a capacity in person crowd and many more watching our webcast, Mat Kaplan was joined on stage by planetary scientists Bruce Betts and David Paige. We got a live report from the LADEE mission’s Brian Day at the Wallops Flight Facility launch site in Virginia, and a surprise phone call from Science Guy and Dancing With the Stars contestant Bill Nye!
