This week's carnival of space can be found at Slacker Astronomy.
And, while I'm posting links, here's some new stuff on our website...
Amateur astronomers: we've just announced the next round of Gene Shoemaker Near Earth Object Grants, so prepare your application! The deadline is September 30, and the call for proposals is the same as it was in 2006: we're offering small grants to people who want to automate their domes or improve their detectors or their computing power in order to aid in follow-up and physical studies of recently discovered NEOs.
The announcement is in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Tunguska impact. You can read an article about Tunguska by Amir Alexander here.
