No, this weeks Carnival of Space has nothing to do with Avatar (a film I had mixed feelings about), but rather the host (Nicole Gugliucci of One Astronomer’s Noise) linked to an article by Ryan Anderson who blogs upon The Martian Chronicles describing how he was able to get over the “Avatar Blues.”
Two articles of interest within our star system included:
- Jason Perry of The Gish Bar Times reports on new models highlighting Io’s atmosphere (a lunar lava world you don’t want to live upon).
- Phil Plait of Bad Astronomy writes about an odd Martian photo that actually captures an avalanche happening upon the red planet.
Thanks for reading, and be sure to read the rest of the articles from the Carnival of Space! For those of you thinking about joining the space geek ranks, hit up Universe Today for details on how to enter.
