Hi everybody, welcome to the 574th Carnival of Space! As usual we have a great selection of space science and astronomy articles from leading sources around the web, so if that’s what you’re here for you can scroll down and get started.
Regular visitors to Urban Astronomer are probably wondering when the latest podcast episode will be landing. I can only offer my apologies and a promise that it will be available in the next 24 hours. I’m currently on the other side of the country, to support a relative through a very serious illness, and this has disrupted all my schedules.
So that’s the personal news over. Let’s get started on the Carnival of Space!
