Astrosphere for June 8, 2007

Welcome back to the astrosphere, where I acknowledge that maybe, just maybe, there are other space blogs that you could be reading.

First, I’d like to mention that I’ve got a doppelganger. Some guy named Fraser Cain is over at Wired Science Blogs reporting on their space news. Okay, it’s me. Where do I find the time? I’ve learned to blog in my sleep.

Okay, now on to the actual space blog sphere.

I’d like to draw your attention to Chris Lintott. Those in the UK will know who he is, but for those of outside of the Isles, he’s a renowned astrophysicist and co-presenter on the BBC’s Sky at Night. He and collaborator Harriet Scott have started up a new podcast called Living Space. It’s good listening, pretty slick stuff.

Pamela Gay is blogging about the second episode of The Universe from The History Channel. This time, she’s talking about The Red Planet.

Centauri Dreams has an interesting look at a precursor mission planned by ESA to deflect an asteroid.

Space Law Probe has discovered that a cool career for the 21st century might be a space law lawyer.
