Welcome, come in to the 480th Carnival of Space! The Carnival is a community of space science and astronomy writers and bloggers, who submit their best work each week for your benefit. I’m Susie Murph, part of the team at Universe Today and CosmoQuest. So now, on to this week’s stories!

Over at Links Through Space, they conclude a series of 7 articles on the Age of Astronomy with our last article of the Ancient Astronomy Series: THE AGE OF ASTRONOMY. 7/7: Maps: Prehistoric Star map 10500BC. This series focused on tangible evidence such as relics, artifacts, astronomical alignments and star maps found throughout the world establishing the age of Astronomy.

Over at the Chandra X-Ray Observatory site, check out Monster Flares in Otherwise Ordinary Extragalactic X-ray Binaries.

Our friend Gadi Eidelheit from over at the Venus Transit has a video of Eight Days of Sunrises over on YouTube.

Blasting News has the following stories this week:

Donald Trump advisors roll out a new space policy
Latest Chinese space mission highlights a challenge to America
New version of ‘impossible’ EM drive patented in Great Britain

Planetaria highlights Juno spacecraft peers deep into Jupiter’s atmosphere before entering safe mode

And finally, some scary stories from Universe Today:

Boo! A Black Moon Halloween Weekend
MIT Claims they are Programming Humanoid Robots to help Explore Mars. But we all Know It’s Cylons!

That’s it for this week – have a Happy Halloween!
