Blog carnivals are collections of the best blog posts across various blogs, all put into one cozy spot to make them easy to read. A new one is the Space Carnival, and on May 17 it'll be hosted at Universe Today, one of my favoritest places on the web. If you have something you've written about space, or know of another blog that had a good spacey entry, send it to Fraser. The deadline is Wednesday night!
