If it's Thursday, it's time for a Carnival! Visit Chris Lintott's blog for this week's roundup of writer-submitted space natterings.

And don't forget to check out other new stuff on this site. Planetary Radio features a progress report on Cassini at Saturn with the wife-and-husband duo of Linda and Tom Spilker. Linda's Deputy Project Scientist on Cassini, and Tom spends his time at JPL thinking about how to design future outer planet missions.

There's another entry in the lovely "Stars Above, Earth Below" journals from Tyler Nordgren, this one from Yellowstone National Park (see his amazing shot of Old Faithful and Saturn at the bottom of this entry).

And Amir Alexander reports on results at last from the Stardust@home project: the first interstellar dust particle track has been extracted.

Old Faithful erupts by starlight in winter. The bright star within the plume is the planet Saturn around which the E ring is replenished by ice from the geysers of Enceladus.
