Dave Mosher at Space Disco hosts the Carnival of Space this week, and he did it in a neato easy-to-read slideshow format.

What's new on the Society's website? Lou Friedman writes in a new "From the Executive Director" letter about The Planetary Society's new (well, in the last couple of years) commitment to advocating for increased monitoring of Earth from space.

Mat Kaplan asks if the cute little robotic star of the new Disney Pixar film WALL*E can excite young people about space exploration and point the way to the future of robotics.

We had some action on the issue of budget cuts to the Arecibo Observatory last week -- read our press release and Amir Alexander's update.
