Two weeks ago, Ryan Anderson (note: I think) hosted the Carnival of Space upon the Martian Chronicles, which featured articles ranging from methane on Mars to whether solar power satellites are ingenious or foolish to even detecting vegetation upon other worlds.
Articles readers of this site may be interested include:
- Alexander Declama of Potentia Tenebras Repellendi highlights NASA's new chariot rover which will enable astronauts to freely roam the lunar surface (without fear of running low on supplies).
- David Portree from Altair VI discusses how NASA could power moon bases throughout the long lunar night via flywheels (which would store energy collected during the day from solar). Beaming energy from Earth to the Moon is also discussed.
- Riding with robots creates a video tribute to our mechanical friends who have scouted the solar system on our behalf (note: hopefully their scanners and wheel prints will be followed up by boots).
Before to read the rest of the entries from two weeks ago (as there is a lot of great content mentioned!).
Last weeks Carnival of Space was hosted by Carolyn Petersen over at The Space Writer's Ramblings which featured several interesting articles ranging from Fusion Starships to whether Obama would help or hurt NASA's lunar plans to remembering the Challenger tragedy.
Interesting articles readers here might be interested in include:
- Brian Wang of Next Big Future discusses using powerful lasers to help launch rockets into the air (which sounds very similar to the space elevator if you ask this author).
- Bruce Irving of Music of the Spheres highlights electric/plasma propulsion systems, which may help humanity reach not only the outer planets, but perhaps the next star system as well.
