Gewerkschaftler suggested this recently:

I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we’re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought. Or as the phlegmatic Germans put it “hope dies last”.

Any contributions this week?

Geneva Motor Fair cancelled. Thank you Covid-19 for preventing yet another beanfeast for Jonestown-Capitalists (they know they’re doomed but their determined to take us all with them).

Not really a sign of hope as such, but thought you might be interested in the shake-up coming to NASA’s Artemis project (looks like they’re re-thinking some of the kludgier elements of the Gateway Lunar space station, which would get in the way of a 2024 landing). Human flight to moon in 2023 or 24 would seem doable, that 2024 thing still looks like pushing it, given the trend for every deadline to slip.

From the ‘Ars Technica’ article:

it would place primary responsibility for NASA’s Moon program on the shoulders of Boeing.

The Artemis program is doomed.
