Jennifer Ouellette over at Twisted Physics hosted the latest Carnival of Space!
There were so many great articles from the Carnival (and not enough time to read them!), which covered everything from Martian volcano's to space rocks attacking Earth to second guesses as to whether a galactic habitable zone is really limited to the median portion of our galaxy.
Interesting articles that caught my eye included:
- Bruce Cordell of 21st Century Waves recommends that NASA drop the "Aeronautics" (as that is what the first "A" stands for) and instead just focus on colonizing Luna and Mars.
- Brian Wang (from Next Big Future) brings us more news regarding solar electric sails, which could help open up mining operations on nearby and distant asteroids.
- The mysterious DJ of Orbiting Hub reports on NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) which will help us scout out the Moon for safe landing zones (not to mention locate potential resources as well).
- Alexander Declama (from Potentia Tenebras Repellendi) makes an excellent suggestion that NASA should consider establishing a mining base upon a near Earth object (instead of just the Moon or floating around in space).
Be sure to visit the rest of the articles posted, and for those of you interested in publishing your thoughts on the upcoming Carnival of Space need to visit Universe Today for the necessary details on how to submit your article for this weeks carnival.
