    „We‘re gonna build our own space station, with AI and robots!“

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    — Joe Strummer

    Although this story sounds like the origin-background for a new Marvel Super-Hero, it is actually true: radioactivity from nuclear bomb tests has been detected in honey:

    Google Earth Timelapse Project

    37 years of satellite images put into timelapse video for Google Earth. Some really interesting features like the development of Dubai, the drying out of the Aral Sea, the retreat of the Columba Glacia

    Great fun.

    My favourite is Berlin Brandenburg Airport - I like airports - and it’s a good job the Google site covers 37 years, given how long it took to build BER.

    35 years ago today - where did that time go? - a nuclear reactor at the Chernobyl power plant near Pripyat in the Ukraine experienced a catastrophic loss-of-coolant accident, resulting in a cloud of radioactive debris being spewed over the local area, and much of wester Europe.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chernobyl_disaster

    Although the incident was initially hushed-up by the Soviet Union, it became public when radioactive material was detected by Swedish physicists.

    The Ukraine is now wanting to petition UNESCO to make the location a world heritage site:

    I subscribe to a podcast on Science, Technology and Society podcast. It's always interesting but can a bit policy orientated so I've never shared it before.

    But the latest edition is interesting and might pique some interest here...

    Covid Vaccine and intellectual property - on how to get it shared with the rest of the world
    Tesla Auto-pilot - what it is and what its not... and Tesla's general outsider position even amongst the e-car startups
    Interview on Race Science with Angela Saini, author of Superior

    https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcas...=1000518590773

    it's about 1 hour long

    I asked myself the same question the other night when I watched a program about the US space program and saw that it was 35 years ago in January when the Challenger Space Shuttle blew up shortly after it launched!

    Where did all those years go?

    I am saddened to read Apollo 11 Command Module Pilot Michael Collins has passed away.



    His famous photograph, taken from lunar orbit, is often tagged with „the only human being, alive or dead, not in this photograph is Astronaut Michael Collins“:



    Godspeed, Commander!

    The Chinese - a great bunch of lads - have yesterday launched the first module of what will become their first permanently-orbiting space station:

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...e_iOSApp_Other

    With Russia also hinting at launching their own station again (and bailing out of the ISS) it’s going to get crowded up there.

    Your palms are holding her neck and thumbs are at her ears regulating the speed of her head as she swallows and then sucks up your machinery. She is topping up your engine oil for the cross-country coming up. Your RPM is hitting a new high. To wait any longer would be to lose prime time... She picks up a Bugatti's momentum. You want her more at a Volkswagen's steady trot. Squeeze the maximum mileage out of your gallon of gas. But she's eating up the road with all cylinders blazing.

    The rocket that launched it is falling ‘out of control’ and likely to partially survive re entry and could land anywhere
