Carnival of Space #148

Come one, come all, the Carnival of Space is here!
See strange and marvelous sights, explore the universe, and spend a little time in the spacey side of the internet :-)

The show starts off with A Little Night Music from One Minute Astronomer and Cheap Astronomy's podcasting on the Shape of Space.

After you've delighted your ears, we have a piece from Universe Today: Skydiver Hopes to Break the Speed of Sound in Freefall, which is a seriously cool article.
Mike Simonsen of Simostronomy writes in about the under appreciated Ophiuchus - 13th sign of the Zodiac Apparently the astrology community is Not Happy about this one :-D
Dirty Snowballs in April? Only at One Astronomer's Noise
And the Phillies Mascot gets new spacesuit, collected by collectSpace

Next Big Future presents the Miley presentation on nuclear fusion rockets and spaceplanes, and conduces on Better superconductors for MHD
Beyond Apollo sends in a piece about Tycho, aptly titled Mission to Tycho
The Spacewriter writes in on The Saga of Eta Caritene ,set to go off at any minute! Or in 10,000 years.
Things start getting a little weird at Weird Warp: How to measure the Atmosphere of another Planet and a LOT weird over at Weird Sciences with a little light reading on Euclidean Relativity's Take on Space and Time and the plausiblity of a Time Machine

Paul D. Spudis, at The Once and Future Moon talks about how NASA lost its way back to our lunar companion, and A Babe in the Universe writes about NASA's shuttle program and Constellation in Sidemount Reconsidered

As a closer, we come to the best part of Space Blogging:

Astroengine posts some Gorgeous Baby Stars in the Orion Nebula, imaged by Spitzer
The Lunar and Planetary Institute's flickr photostream
The Planetary Society Blog Unexplained Chain of Lunar Craters

If YOU, yes you, have any recent pictures of Mercury and Venus, Discovery News wants them.
