We’ve had an abundance of news stories for the past few months, and not enough time to get to them all. So we’ve started a new system. Instead of adding all of the stories to the spreadsheet each week, we are now using a tool called Trello to submit and vote on stories we would like to see covered each week, and then Fraser will be selecting the stories from there. Here is the link to the Trello WSH page (http://bit.ly/WSHVote), which you can see without logging in. If you’d like to vote, just create a login and help us decide what to cover!

We record the Weekly Space Hangout every Friday at 12:00 pm Pacific / 3:00 pm Eastern. You can watch us live on Universe Today or the Universe Today YouTube page.

You can also join in the discussion between episodes over at our Weekly Space Hangout Crew group in G+!

    Rocky planet is Earth, Gas giant planet is Jupiter, Dwarf planet is Pluto. They are all planets. Planet 9 is not an appropriate name It should be PLANET X, especially since it has not been definitively proven that planet X exists. Lastly, as you can see, I am part of the “Pluto is a planet” crowd, EVEN if it is a small icy one.
