Carnival of Space #88
This week's Carnival of Space is hosted by The SpaceWriter's Ramblings. It's a great collection of blog posts on a variety of space and astronomy related subjects. A few bloggers remind us that this is a good time to remember the men and women who lost their lives in tragic space flight disasters that occurred around this time of the year (Apollo 1 , 1/27/67, space shuttle Challenger, 1/28/86, space shuttle Columbia, 2/1/03). But many more of the posts this week relate to current and future developments in space - it's good to remember the past, but it's important to stay optimistic and focused on the future, even when the present is looking pretty tough.
