As if we haven't enough problems on earth we seem ever intent on taking or making some gigantic problems for ourselves amongst the stars.
NASA's New Horizons spacecraft, not your average run around, is reported to have discovered a veritable wall in space. This mysterious phenomenon is at the edge of the Solar System, where two bodies of charged and uncharged hydrogen atoms meet. One lot is from our sun, a bubble called the heliosphere, which meets hydrogen atoms from interstellar space. These two bodies don't mix and create a wall or screen that disperses incoming ultraviolet light from interstellar space. Dr Leslie Young from the Southwest Research Institute in Colorado said, "We're seeing the threshold between being in the solar neighbourhood and being in the galaxy." So now we know.
Another space program, costing more than several million hot meals, is reported to have found life on Mars. Sure it's only a mushroom like form of life, no intelligence, at least not like the intelligence found on earth, no big challenge there, but its life none the less. What a breakthrough, amazing, just what we need on this planet right now. So easy to justify all that money spent.
Speaking of money spent, Ace Magashule's own private state capture, or was it just a province capture, anyway journalist Pieter-Louis Myburgh has really gotten under Ace's skin with his new book "Gangster State: Unravelling Ace Magashule's Web of Capture". I just feel for those people of the Free State. The only real free they have there is free money for the political elite. I am amazed at how we are uncovering the debauchery and the total outright thievery, like the Zondo commission is doing on a daily basis, and no news of the prosecutions. Did the top dogs negotiate a stay of persecution until after the elections, when it won't even matter in the slightest
Anyway Ace is considering legal action, however the reason he has not just set his attorneys onto Myburgh, might have something to do with the truth and the interest of the public and various other elements working against Ace. Don't suppose he's used to that.
The British Parliament make a right botch of Brexit, the D-day came and went and no Brexit happened. Now the scare mongering about a no-deal Brexit begins.
The American Government is worse off. I don't know how they are going to reconcile their consciences with the heinous crime they are perpetrating on Venezuela. It is a form of evil, a gross injustice, and it's not the first time this bully nation is pulling its well rehearsed tricks at the cost of innocent peoples lives. The amount of suffering they are causing, just so that they can get their greedy hands on the largest oil reserves in the world, seems to go by almost unnoticed, unpunished. How do they live with themselves Gross!
At least Diego Maradonna had something to say when he ranted, "The sheriffs of the world, who are those Yankees Just because they have the biggest bombs in the world they think they are so much more advanced than us. No, they are not,".
