Carnival of Space #119 is here at The Planetary Society Blog
Come one, come all, to a special Labor Day weekend Carnival of Space! Here in the US it's traditionally the last weekend of summer, after which we must all be serious and hardworking. Until then, though, let's have fun wandering the sideshows, eating corn dogs and cotton candy...
The most carnival-y post prize goes to Alan Boyle, who reports on how Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte says he'll emcee a global extravaganza starring Al Gore, U2 and other celebrities during his multimillion-dollar trip to the international space station.
