Last week's Carnival of Space was hosted by Nicole over at One Astronomer's Noise.
Interesting posts ranged from "haunted noises" from Saturn to exo-solar planets (note: video included) to even reasons why Obama (and the space community) should delay "big space projects" for a season.
A few articles readers might enjoy include:
- Emily Lakdawalla of the Planetary Society Blog ponders whether NASA should consider a future mission towards Neptune (which could benefit colonists later on).
- Paul Gilster of Centauri Dreams ponders using inflatable solar sails made out of beryllium to visit the Oort Cloud.
- Bruce Irving (via Music of the Spheres) discusses how lasers could enable computers to land lunar modules (or even Martian ones) on the surface without human assistance (which would enable us to launch cargo frequently off world).
Thanks for reading, and be sure to read the rest of the articles from the Carnival of Space, and if you are considering on submitting a post for this weeks upcoming Carnival be sure to visit Universe Today for detaiils on how to enter.
