42nd Carnival of Space

by Paul Gilster on February 23, 2008

The 42nd Carnival of Space is online at Chris Lintott’s Universe, good reading for the weekend and a way to keep up with the growing number of astronomy weblogs. Centauri Dreams readers in particular will want to check out Emily Lakdawalla’s Showing Off Saturn’s Moons, examining these exotic bodies in connection with the recent series of articles on Cassini findings in Icarus. Emily discusses image techniques and also links to a Microsoft Access-formatted database of all Cassini images released to the general public up until now. Great stuff for those looking for imagery either for publication or the sheer wonder of the scenery.
