Belated: Carnivals Of The Space Geeks (39 And 40) Authentic NASA Toys and Replicas

After taking a longer than expected hiatus from blogging, it looks like I forgot to mention the previous carnival (not to mention a few other key stories). So in an attempt to "catch up," both space carnivals will be rolled into one post.

Carnival of Space 39

The 39th Carnival of Space was hosted by Sean Welton of Visual Astronomy who linked to posts ranging from astro-poetry to analysis on the raging Jupiter storms.

A few interesting posts readers should check out from the Carnival include:

Those were some of the highlights from last week's Carnival of Space, and here are some of the interesting articles from this week's Carnival of Space (hosted by Orbiting Frog).

Carnival of Space 40

  • Brian Wang discuses the progress of SpaceX's Merlin engines, which is very good news for NewSpace.

  • Clark Lindsey of HobbySpace highlights Bigelow Aerospace teaming up with Lockheed Martin in order to launch their inflatable space stations.

    For those wondering why this is an incredible event, Clark publishes a second post that will enlighten new comers and old timers alike.

  • Sean Welton (last week's space carnival host) thinks humans should pay closer attention to the sky lest we get our astro-turf kicked around by a wandering space rock.

  • John Benac via Action for Space is attempting to "rally the troops" to help promote human exploration within the 2008 election. It looks as if Hillary got the message (note: go John!!).

  • Paul Gilster of Centauri Dreams discusses a way for a probe to reach Alpha Centauri in under ten lifetimes, give or take a century.

That's it for the latest Carnival of Space (both 39 and 40). For those of you thinking about submitting an article, astro-poem or space post towards the next round, you can simply visit Universe Today for more details.

  1. Good summary of the Carnivals, I saw them when they came out but I missed a few good stories that this post reminded me of.

You can either visit the stars or watch them from afar.

But if you choose the former, you'll definitely get a better view.
