New Carnival of Space

By Phil Plait | March 13, 2008 3:00 pm

Miss Frye over at Observations at Missy’s Window is hosting the latest Carnival of Space. I’ve had a somewhat busy week, and forgot to send her one of my own posts, but if you’re here it means you probably read ‘em all anyway. But head on over there and take a gander; as usual there’s lots of good stuff there, and you might find a new blog or two to stick into your feed reader.

And if you like it, show her the love on Digg.

Also, Cassini made it through the water plumes of Enceladus yesterday, and has returned lots of images. I’ll talk about those later.

    Damn they shrink fast. Im glad I read about the feather and the hammer today, I’d never heard of that. Cool to see.

    Thanks for the reminder. CICLOPS’s high resolution mosaic is very nice too. I tend to rate many of the images as a 10…I suppose they need a scale of: cool, very cool, extremely cool, and out of this world stunning.

  7. How come the Carnival of Space is listed as a discontinued carnival at blogcarnival.com ?
