Apollo 12 moon landing, 1969. NASA would like to return one day to study what was left behind.

Luke Burbank is back for this weekly segment Awesome/Not awesome. He'll talk about Google's $30 million challenge to get to the moon in two years, and why NASA is interested in studying space feces. Also, Luke dishes on the Commercial Felony Streaming Act, a proposal to ban people from posting their own versions of copyrighted songs on YouTube. And he explains the case of a Philadelphia-area couple who lost custody of their children after naming them "Adolf Hitler" and "Aryan Nation."


Luke Burbank, hosts of the podcast "Too Beautiful to Live," a regular guest on the show.
