Emily Lakdawalla's is hosting this week's Carnival of Space over at her Planetary Society Blog. Definitely give that a gander to read about this week in the space blogosphere. Among the topics this week include the impending launch of the Kepler telescope, designed to look for transiting exoplanets.
Kepler launches at 10:48pm EST from Cape Canaveral, Florida. I will be watching it live on NASA TV though I know a couple people who will be there live.
