An astronomy blog usually (but not always) based in the UK. Pondering questions such as What is in an exoplanet name?.
The people at Astronomy Picture of the Day today announce the discovery of water on mars.
Slacker Astronomy also caught out a few people with their announcement that they were to stop podcasting. Actually, the spoof episode is worth listening to, so that you can hear MC Hawking and the universe rap.
