Here's some links to some good followup stories on Wednesday's Kepler press briefing:
- By Amir Alexander, for the Planetary Society: "Kepler Discoveries Suggest a Galaxy Rich in Life"
- By Phil Plait, for Discover: " Motherlode of potential planets found: more than 1200 alien worlds!"
- By Eugenie Samuel Reich, for Nature: "Citizen scientists beat Kepler team to candidate planets"
In his most recent "Lou's View" columns, Lou Friedman is concered about the local interests of congresspeople ruling future NASA funding, but still looks forward to a future where we may fly to the stars.
Finally, I forgot to link earlier this week to the newly restarted Carnival of Space, now being organized by Brian Wang.
