Roll up! Roll up! The 145th Carnival of Space is Here!
In no particular order the Shows on offer…
Mike Simonsen, at Simostronomy, gives us another view of the GW Lib campaign: Okay Hubble, You’re Safe To Go… The AAVSO has your back.
Dr. Schenk’s 3D House of Satellites gives us the Mimas Rejoinder: Those Pesky Icy Satellites Between the Rings and Titan, reminding us of the gyre of Icy Moons that circulate around Saturn too.
At Chandra blog, Chandra the X-ray telescope, muses on The Poetry of Discovery, particularly a poem by Jonathan Taylor about the tune of a Super-Massive Black-Hole. And I thought that was already a “Muse” song.
Brian Wang, at Next Big Future, gives us the Biggest Circus Cannon Act ever! The 150 Kiloton Nuclear Verne Gun in fact. Plus thoughts from Burt Rutan on the *cheapest* tickets to space you’ll ever see! Not on the Verne Gun I hope!
The Shuttle Era tells us Bob Parkinson’s 1981 Plan: Mars in 1995! David Hardy kindly gave permission to David Portree to use some high quality images from artwork he did for the plan, so I won’t use the images here because I haven’t asked. Worth seeing!
