Welcome to the 647th Carnival of Space! The carnival which brings together the latest space and astronomy news from specialist websites around the globe! The carnival which, true to its name, drifts between audiences, pitching its tent on the front page of a different website every week. This week it’s here, at the home of the Urban Astronomer Podcast, and features items from Universe Today, Space in Africa and The Hill.
- Balloon-Based Cosmic Ray Observatory is Now on its Second Trip Around Antarctica
- New View of the Swan Nebula From NASA’s Airborne SOFIA Telescope
- Almost 800,000 Years Ago, an Enormous Meteorite Struck Earth. Now We Know Where.
- In About 3 Million Years, WASP-12b Will Spiral into its Star and be Consumed
- Hubble Finds Teeny Tiny Clumps of Dark Matter
Space in Africa
Next week’s Carnival will be setting up at BrownSpaceman. Don’t miss it! Before then, you can catch Dr. Kenneth Carpenter, Carolyn Collins Petersen, Michael Rodruck, Fraser Cain and me, Allen Versfeld, live on the Weekly Space Hangout at 1am UTC (24 January), or 8pm (EST) and 5pm (Pacific) 23 January. Hope to see you there!
