The fifth-dozen Carnival of Space is hosted this week by Slacker Astronomy. There is the usual wide variety of space and astronomy topics, and honestly, where else can you find someone wishing you a happy Mars solstice?
Carnivals often introduce blogs that are new to me, and one that I really like is GoodSchist - who knew geology could be funny (and geologists so charismatic)? I also like Orbiting Frog's graphic design (shown here) with the names of solar system bodies in fonts sized to their diameters. This could finally be a space t-shirt that I would buy and that my daughters would let me wear (or maybe not, except maybe to an astronomy club meeting).
