Space Carnival #74

The Kentucky Space web page is hosting this week’s carnival. Lots of interesting links, including the use of dogs as companions for humans on long space journeys, a lengthy link to some long-lost Mars missions proposed in the 80’s, plus some images and thoughts on planets, especially the aforementioned Mars, plus Mercury and Saturn.

Above shows a sample from Tuesday’s raw image file at the Cassini site. The overexposed moon Prometheus and some of its handiwork on the F Ring. A number of images from that day look like they’ll be assembled into a video of sorts. Cassini’s vantage point high above the rings gives it a unique perspective on moon-ring interaction.
