This week's (actually last week's now, I'm a bit late) Carnival of Space is up at astroengine. Check it out for your weekly digest of online space news.

And here's another little tidbit, a new photo of Earth from Chandrayaan-1, centered (where else?) on India. You can see the Indus river plain winding through Pakistan very clearly, and the Nile valley also shows up very clearly over in Egypt.
