Bad Astronomy

Another carnival! In space!

The 115th Carnival of Space is hanging out at New Frontiers News. The Carnival is a collection of the past week’s best posts in astronomy and space, and there’s some very cool stuff there. I read it every week so I can catch up on what’s what above our heads.

I’m glad, because somehow I missed out on Ian O’Neill’s article on WR-104, a potential gamma-ray burst that I have written quite a bit about, including in my book. Will this star kill us all? Well, no, but you can find out why at Ian’s post.
