Happy New Year!
2010's first Carnival of Space (http://steves-astrocorner.blogspot.com/2010/01/2010-carnival-of-space-135.html) is alive and kicking over at Mr Tilford's Steve's Astro Corner (http://steves-astrocorner.blogspot.com/).
As to what a carnibval is, Steve says:
A carnival is a collection of blogs from all over the internet that you can find in just one site. We have a lot of entries for the carnival and every one of them has something good to offer.
