What I find sad about European Science and Engineering is - lack of project management. Why shut down a massively successful program BEFORE the next stage is up and running? What happens if ITER is not ready in 2025? It parallels Ariane's dumb, dumb decision to stop Ariane 5 BEFORE Ariane 6 was remotely ready to fly - I actually was in Florida to see the ESA EUCLID launce using SpaceX coz of this dumb management. The US guy giving us the spiel could hardly stop laughing at the idiocy of the Europeans. I shit you not! Lions led by donkeys indeed!

Cheaper than HS2 and worth much more
This is the boundary of real Science (i.e. discoveries that will mean something 1000 years from now and maybe get us to the starts). Not 'science' as unfortunately dumbed down by the once-great BBC to cater for the low-IQ woke generation. AND it is much cheaper than the low-IQ HS2 debacle so it is actually amazingly cheap when you think about it.
Sad for a great company like Boeing, they have unfortunately hired absolute idiotic morons to their "leadership team". Same applies to Google. We are living in a time where the good and great people in world-facing companies are being failed by moronic idiots that are in their positions as a result of "diversity". Idiocracy right there.
The real danger with "AI" is "HS" - Human Stupidity. I agree "AI" is laughable (I use it every day as a data scientist and I can confirm it is a pattern matching machine with the intelligence of a pattern matching machine). The real problem is stupid Humans who think it is an actual sentient being so some of them will be easily led by whatever puppet-master is controlling it, and some will try to give it "Human rights".
SpaceX is the most innovative and forward-facing company the world has ever seen in the history of the world. If it were not for SpaceX we would witness two or three launches per year and the way back to the moon and onto mars would be hundreds of years in the future, rather than likely a decade or two. Anyone who doubts SpaceX are living in a bubble of their own hopeless delusion. Or maybe they are eco-ideology fanatics who are afraid of Evolution by Natural Selection?
Re: I hate to say this, but it's sad that there are homo sapiens so f'in stupid
Oh that paragon of virtue, the ECHR. The same one that supported a group of over-indulged Portuguese brats to sue the world for their imagined mental health issues. The ECHR has the same group IQ as those eco-extinction upper class brats.
