Carnival of Space Noir by Pamela | Jan 24, 2008 | Astronomy, Space Carnival | 5 comments This Thursday’s carnival of space raised the bar on writing a Space Carnival post. I bow down before the whim of imagination that is this week Space Carnival over on Sorting out Science. Go read. Have fun. 5 Comments Freiddie on January 25, 2008 at 12:04 am And what does “noir” mean here? “Black”? pamela on January 25, 2008 at 12:17 am As in Film Noir. Or Detective Noir. It is a style of writing for old detective shows. Did you see the Next Generation Star Trek episodes were they are in the holo deck doing detective shows? That is Noir style.

There’s also a good description of the style on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Film_noir Pamela — glad you liked the carnival, thanks for the link & for giving me such good material to work with! Sam Freiddie on January 25, 2008 at 5:14 pm Sigh. I knew I should have at least watched one sci-fi movie. Beth on January 25, 2008 at 5:19 pm Oh my! I need more hours in my day. That was nicely done.
