Thought for the month

“You cannot have freedom without a rule of law ... and if you don't have it, what you tend to get is corruption and that is death to freedom, it's death to truth, it's death to honour, it's death to democracy.”

Margaret Thatcher, 1 October 1996.

Oppy dies on Mars

Rover over, One dead?
Last month NASA declared that after nearly 15 years of successfully trundling around Mars the exploration rover nicknamed "Oppy" had ceased to function. A far less auspicious Martian enterprise may also have come to an end with Mars One Ventures AG entering administration. The proposed reality TV funded project to send people to Mars may sadly linger on through a new investor.
