It's Monday. To cheer you up, Pamela Hoffman of Everyday Spacer has collected the best of last week's writing on space science and astronomy and put them together in the 293rd Carnival of Space. This week's carnival shows that everybody was talking about extraterrestrial life last week - whether on Mars, or tiny planets orbiting tiny suns. Just to keep a balance, though, there's also a fair bit of talk about new cosmological discoveries, and some pictures of Comet PanSTARRS. Click here to see.
