Great News!



RIP Terry Prachett

You really should read some of his books. I like the Night Watch ones best.

“I meant,” said Ipslore bitterly, “what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?”
Death thought about it.
CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.”
Terry Pratchett, Sourcery

It will be interesting to see if this pans out. On the one hand it’s Lockheed Martin, not some random guy in his basement. On the other hand, fusion. It’s never gone right yet. On the other hand, ten years out, which means never in real terms.
