Marketplace for Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Facebook shares fell again today. But how does all this actually affect Facebook -- the company? President Obama travels to the Silicon Valley tomorrow to raise money for his reelection campaign. Google Chrome surpassed Internet Explorer last week as the world's most used web browser. Funding to study the solar system will be cut by 20 percent, and that could affect U.S. missions to Mars. Kai Ryssdal talks to former president of ABC News, David Westin, about how the business of TV news has changed in the last two decades, and to Outside magazine's Nick Heil about the dangers of climbing Mount Everest.
