Probably the most popular image from the New Horizon's fly-by of Pluto in 2015 was the heart shape on Pluto, a landform unofficially named Sputnik Planum.

Hi here,

Every country has it daft politicians running around and here in South Africa we are up there with the best! Eskom is a corporation that has the monopoly in providing South Africa with electricity and is pretty reliant on coal in its endeavours.

They have misplaced some don't know how many millions/billions, the figure is too silly to contemplate (telephone numbers anyway), and now this country is struggling with rolling blackouts and what we call 'load-shedding'. The consequent cost to business is huge and depressing, but the band plays on.

I am so much more aware of how the globe is squandering natural resources than I used to be and still trying to catch up. I take three deep breaths whenever I can and try not to keep my head in the sand a l'ostrich. Anyway, I am also trying to do my bit though I am sure I could improve.

Good news about sustainable forests in Germany.

Cheers

Hi there,

It seems to be coming back in a big way (though for some families and generations it never left!). When I was reading around for the article I came across a charming piece about Prince Charles and the huge area that has been left to 'stumpery', probably at Highgrove. Apparently it is organised chaos and quite wild and lovely. Prince Phillip, on seeing it, wondered around, couldn't see what was what and is supposed to have said something like "So when are you going to burn this lot then?"

Be still my heart - all that lovely mix time and 10-star accommodation for the insects! Well, I hope Prince Charles just smiled and found use for another log somewhere.

I am not sure that stumpery is good for the balcony 'garden', but it is a place to put some interesting and exchangeable pots if you have a garden, and dappled to deep shade.

Cheers now

Hey Francine, great to hear from you and will pass on the advice to Tammy toute suite! Thank you and it sounds sensible and easy and green and kind.

It could be worth an article too so we'll see. Insects across the world are under attack and there are some scary statistics that float about now and then in terms of how long humanity would have if all the insects 'left'. Bees, butterflies and all other pollinators, we can only lose.

I hope you are well well well and I send bestest,

Cheers now

Many Moon hoaxers demand to know "Why," if we were able to go to the Moon in 1969, "has there been no serious attempt to return to the Moon?”

Well, first of all, Apollo 11 was already the third mission to go to the Moon, Apollo 8 and Apollo 10 having preceded it. But it was the first to land humans on the Moon. As for returning, a further six missions followed Apollo 11 to the Moon, five of which landed there.

However it's true that Apollo missions 18-20 were cancelled, and that's been the end of it. Curious Droid explains why humans haven't walked on the Moon since the 1970s. But if you're in a hurry, the short answer is: going to the Moon was incredibly expensive, and once the US had shown up the Russians, Congress didn't think it was worth the money, just for more science.

Update: The Academy was forced to backtrack on its decision to award certain categories during the commercial breaks. The American Society of Cinematographers was instrumental in forcing the Academy to reconsider. This controversy is the topic of my latest article on the Drama Movies site. Read more here.

"The Rider" director Chloe Zhao has a new film that's been picked up by Fox Searchlight Pictures. "Nomadland" stars Frances McDormand as an older woman who has joined the invisible class of homeless people living in their vehicles. The film is based on Jessica Bruder's 2017 book "Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century". Bruder spent time with people who travel around the country working temp jobs that allow them to survive, but only just. You can either be incredibly depressed by hearing these stories or amazed by the resiliency and ingenuity of people in response to circumstances beyond their control.
