Carnival of Space 347

by on Apr.03, 2014, under Carnival of Space

Carnival of Space 347 is up and running on the CosmoQuest blog hosted by Nicole Gugliucci.

CosmoQuest describe their goal:

Our goal is to create a community of people bent on together advancing our understanding of the universe; a community of people who are participating in doing science, who can explain why what they do matters, and what questions they are helping to answer. We want to create a community, and here is where we invite all of you to be a part of what we’re doing.

I like this article on the Mars-Bound Comet Siding Spring Sprouts Multiple Jets on Universe Today by Bob King.

Carnival of Space 346

This week’s Carnival of Space 346 is hosted by Joe Latrell on the Photos to Space blog.

As usual, lots of space goodies are on display, this caught my attention.

Joe Latrell:

We start with an article from Dear Astronomer about some potentially bad news. Frequent visitors to the NASA Live ISS Telemetry website ( http://spacestationlive.nasa.gov/ ) have spotted an official notice stating the site will be shutting down in two weeks.

So visit Dear Astronomer to show your support for this site, and maybe prevent its closure.

Carnival of Space 341

by on Feb.18, 2014, under Carnival of Space

This week’s Carnival of Space 341 is hosted by Joe Latrell on the Photos to Space blog.

Joe Latrell:

Welcome to the Carnival of Space. Each week we explore the universe around us from Earth to the Moon and beyond. This week brings us many great and diverse articles from around the globe.

Sit back and enjoy the show!

This week there is a look at the future of inter-stellar propulsion. NASA has spent some $1.6 Million on research in this field. This artist’s depiction of a hypothetical Wormhole Induction Propelled Spacecraft, is based loosely on the 1994 “warp drive” paper of Miguel Alcubierre.
