Carnival Of The Space Geeks (On Mars?)

SpaceToys.com Authentic NASA Toys and Replicas

Last weeks Carnival of Space (which enters its 66th round) was hosted by Nancy Houser over at A Mars Odyssey, a blog dedicated towards promoting a manned mission to Mars (and back). I would recommend subscribing to Nancy's feed over here.

Many of the posts highlighted dealt with Phoenix's discovery of perchlorate in the Martian soil, with articles about NASA "keeping the faith" about life being discovered, although reality may not offer much hope that life (note: as we know it) would coexist with perchlorate nearby.

Interesting articles readers might want to tune into include:

Those are only a few of the many posts mentioned at the Carnival of Space, so be sure to read the rest of the articles over at A Mars Odyssey.

Note: If you would like to participate in the upcoming Carnival of Space, feel free to visit Universe Today for more details on how to enter.

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

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