Pretty interesting read on Brexit:
A Short Guide to Britain’s Long Attempt to Leave Europe
Boris Johnson is almost certainly going to win the contest for the prime ministership. They used to say that politicians campaign in poetry and govern in prose. Johnson’s approach is different. He is painting a great and glorious rainbow highway, for the unicorns of the Brexit debate to travel up into the sky. His message is a ceaseless barrage of impossible nonsense.

Britain used to be a moderate, good-natured, and fundamentally calm country, which celebrated its practical judgment and resistance to utopianism. Three years of culture war have basically driven it insane. It is now on the verge of making one of the most deceitful and self-interested politicians it has ever known prime minister, so that he can pursue an imaginary strategy for an unattainable outcome.

Searched this out just to read the comments that go with it. The Guardian never fails to satisfy. ... on-mission
Spacewatch: India prepares to launch Chandrayaan 2 moon mission
If successful, India will become fourth country to soft-land on moon after Russia, US and China
India is making final preparations for the launch this Sunday of the Chandrayaan 2 moon mission. The spacecraft will take two months to cruise to the moon. Following its arrival, it will manoeuvre into a circular orbit just 62 miles (100km) above the lunar surface. It will then deploy the Vikram lander early in September.
This will be India’s first attempt at a soft landing on the moon. If successful, it will make the country the fourth to achieve such a feat, after Russia, the US and China.
The chosen landing site is near the lunar south pole, where water ice has been detected in some permanently shadowed craters. Once safely down, the Vikram lander will release a small, six-wheeled rover named Pragyan.
The three components of the mission carry a full complement of scientific instruments. Among other things, they will study the moon’s mineral and chemical composition and its topology and seismology.
