Michael over at Slacker Astronomy hosts the 60th Carnival of Space, which had a variety of entries ranging from humanity traveling towards Alpha Centauri to why the Moon "grows larger/smaller" to even how persistance can pay off when confronting NASA.
A few interesting posts regarding our solar system (or technology that will help get us there) caught this author's eye, which included:
- Stuart Atkinson of Cumbrian Sky takes us on an emotional journey throughout our solar system and beyond.
- Todd from Catholic Sensibility has some close up shots of Saturn's icy moons, which shows the worlds to be "a bit rougher" than they appear from afar.
- Brian Wang of Next Big Future informs everyone about the upcoming Space Elevator competition, as well as the $2 million purse prize NASA is offering (note: will anyone win it this year?)
