Planetary scientist Jani Radebaugh was looking at pictures of Pluto's surface a few years ago and realized the images were remarkably similar to the features found in California's Death Valley. Radebaugh determined Pluto has sandy dunes, much like those found in the deserts on Earth. She joins us to talk about this discovery and what it means for planetary exploration in the future.

This week, caffeinated soft drinks went on sale at Brigham Young University in Utah after a roughly six-decade ban at the Mormon campus. While students there toast with cans of cola, sodas are still hard to come by at BYU’s Idaho campus.

Jun 13, 2012

The U.S. Department of Education has published new lists of the most and least expensive colleges. Idaho’s public colleges and universities don't make these lists. But in the category of private, not for profit, four year schools, Brigham Young University Idaho shows up with the 8th lowest tuition at $3,660 a year.

The University of Phoenix’s Idaho campus makes the lowest tuition list in for-profit schools. Its yearly tuition is $9,840s.
