Carnival of Space #76


Credits: ESA



This week, the Carnival of Space is hosted in Sweden at As(si)tronomi by Assi Süer. This is the 76th edition of the Carnival.


OrbitalHub submitted a story about the XMM-Newton space telescope.



There are two updates that we would like to bring to your attention. The first is that ESA re-established radio contact with XMM-Newton. Also, the GOCE mission is postponed until February 2009 due to technical problems with the upper stage of the launch vehicle.
