Last weeks Carnival of Space was hosted by Wayne Hall over at the KentuckySat Blog (note: yes, Kentucky has officially caught space fever).
Numerous articles featured topics ranging from dark matter, to why Pluto is not a planet, to even how common intelligent life may be throughout our galaxy (if not the universe itself).
Some very interesting articles that may be of interest to readers here include:
- Brian Wang of Next Big Future discusses dome enclosed cities, which may useful for off world colonies.
- Ken Murphy from Out of the Cradle features an interesting post regarding lunar gardens (part two). Be sure to visit his third article in the series over here.
- Stuart Atkinson on Cumbrian Sky takes issue with Russia sending monkeys to Mars, highlighting why doing so would be of little value of scientists (note: this author recommends pigs instead).
- Mang at Mang's Bat Page enlightens everyone on how to navigate without using GPS or a compass--training which will probably benefit colonists living on worlds lacking magnetic fields (unless of course they live on Saturn's Titan)
- John Benac from Political Action for Space (a must read) highlights a new pro-space PAC (or political action committee) called The Committee for the Advocacy of Space Exploration, which hopefully the space community will consider supporting financially.
While reading these articles like these can help "wet the tongue" when it comes to space exploration, submitting an article to the Carnival of Space is even better as it helps to not only keep everyone informed, but also expand our view of conquering our "little" Universe.
