First up, Ryan Calo, an Assistant Law Professor at the University of Washington and an affiliate scholar at the Stanford Center for Internet and Society, joins us to talk about why he thinks we need a Federal Robotics Commission. Plus, the human race's efforts to understand our universe will take a huge leap forward next month when a spacecraft lands on a comet for the first time. Europe's Rosetta spacecraft, which is just about the size of a small car, is on a landmark mission for science, but the project will also provide vital research for ambitious plans to conduct mining on asteroids.
