Carnival Of The Space Geeks (62) Authentic NASA Toys and Replicas
Now that all of the iPhone hype has died down (note: okay, so it's just beginning--after all, its the only phone that can turn you into a Jedi master!), its time to review this week's Carnival of Space, hosted by Dave Mosher upon the Space Disco.

Posts ranged from observations regarding the "state of space" to ponderings about the shuttle's retirement to even some good news regarding fusion power.

Two articles that did catch this authors eye include:

  • David Portree of Altair VI post regarding NASA's previous plans of using blimps on Titan. Since mapping the moon via satellite will be hard due to Titan's "floating crust," it may be wise to pin down these land marks ahead of time.

  • Marc G. Millis guest posting on Centauri Dreams mentions the Tau Zero Foundation, an organization attempting to help support interstellar technology (which would indirectly enable humanity to swiftly travel between our own planets).

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

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