Note: After a brief absence, it looks like fresh posts will resume their regular schedule starting this Monday. Until then, I have some "catching up" to do reviewing the various Carnival of Space entries, over this weekend, with the latest one being highlighted below.
This weeks Carnival of Space was hosted by Steve Nerlich over at Cheap Astronomy which featured posts ranging about 2,000 year interstellar missions, ponderings over Neptune's favorite son Triton, and celebrations of the Apollo launches 40 years ago.
A few interesting articles that caught this author's attention include:
- Louise Riofrio of A Babe in the Universe has a post about NASA's pressurized rover cabin (in beta) that could allow astronauts to explore the lunar surface and return to their cabin's minus the lunar dust.
- Brian Wang of Next Big Future briefly goes over the details regarding the strength of space elevator tethers and power beams. (note: more details can be found over at the Space Elevator Blog)
- Irene Klotz (of Free Space) catches up with Elon Musk of SpaceX to figure out why they are getting paid less to do more of NASA's work than Orbital Sciences (especially after SpaceX's successful launch).
Be sure to check out the rest of the articles mentioned in the latest Carnival of Space, and if you would like to submit your viewpoint regarding life, the universe (and everything in between--as long as its space related that is) feel free to visit Universe Today for details on how to enter the next Carnival of Space.
