Carnival of Space #303

posted May 28, 2013, 1:04 PM by Allen Versfeld
Thanks to Pamela Hoffman of Everyday Spacer for compiling the 303rd Carnival of Space.  Every week a new editor trawls the internet for news and articles about space science and astronomy. The best of these are destined for inclusion in the Carnival of Space, and this week's highlights include a heads-up about the large asteroid which will be passing near Earth in a short while, Magnetars and a fair bit of space-themed story telling.  We discuss the use of Pulsars as navigational beacons for interstellar travellers, the nature of rocky exoplanets andeven the possibility of life in the scorching acidic atmosphere of Venus!
