Final Countdown for Space

Space has gathered 170.9k US People for May so far, with 12 days left to collect another 129.1k. Here's my stories from last week in a tidy list for you to browse at your leisure, just in case you missed one that you'd like to share. ;)

The way the numbers work is that Uniques are every individual IP address, and People are those Uniques minus anyone logged in via multiple devices. Only American IP addresses count for the advertising numbers, which breaks my little heart pragmatically as even I don't count in Canada, and poetically as it's just so cool to have readers in Iceland and Tunisia.

This week you can expect stories on fossils, exoplanet volcanoes, geophysics, and Stargate.

Edited to add: At 3+ stories a day every day, I just realized I'm somewhere over the 200-article count. I'm afraid to do a wordcount, but I suspect I'm now banned from ever playing in NaNoWriMo...

Space this Week

The week is busy, and it's easy for news to slip through the cracks, so here's your dose of planetary science news in one tidy package for your viewing pleasure.


It's that time of the week again! I'll shamelessly plead for your help in bringing traffic into the Space subsite, then pass along all the cool planetary sciences stories that we didn't cover. It's my last month as a Recruit, so if you want me to stay, I need your help hitting my numbers.

In Case You Missed It, here's all my stories from Space this week. Like something? Pass it on!

The Carnival of Space is a collection of space science news from around the web. As always, we can't cover everything, so here's space-science-awesomeness from elsewhere on the internet:
