Then join InformationWeek Radio Host Curtis Franklin for this Friday's edition of "This InformationWeek," a weekly Internet Radio broadcast that looks back at the week in technology to explain how IT is changing our lives and the way we do business.

This week, Franklin interviews InformationWeek Editor David F. Carr as he discusses two important stories that will have you looking at the stars all weekend.

This first story relates to debugging issues the European Space Agency encountered with its Rosetta project. After a historic landing on a comet, technical engineers had to immediately debug code within the probe to continue the mission.

The second story Carr will discuss looks at how NASA is exploring the largely untapped field of open data and what lessons your IT department can learn from the space agency.
