This is a project that I'm working on with some members of my local hackerspace. The project invites teams from around the world to compete in the design and assembly of a weather balloon equipped with cameras to take photos of the Earth from near space.

Dear Astronomer lets readers submit their questions about Astronomy and Science. Topical posts include: Answering reader questions, NASA press releases, Breaking Space/Science news, Product reviews, editorial posts/opinions and science humor. The site is a spinoff from a Facebook page that was used to "beta-test" the site concept.
A little tumblelog about astrophotography, both professional (e.g., the Hubble and other space- and ground-based observatories) and amateur, with a certain amount of geeking out about the equipment and the science. I set this up to prevent my personal blog from being completely taken over by look-at-the-pretty-space-pictures posts, which I'm now doing here with reckless abandon.
