Sixty years later, Captain Kirk is finally taking off

We’re happy to report that a special meeting of ESP hosts took place in Frankfurt this week. In other news, the film industry is heading for the final frontier with Russian actors going to ISS and William Shatner going where no nonagenarian has gone before. Looking back at this week in history Niels Bohr was born in 1885, and apart from describing the atom he also took a stand against the Nazis. Pope Francis, on the other hand, is “sad” because hundreds of thousands of abuse victims have been identified in France. Poor him!
Then, of course, there’s the news:

  • EUROPE: EMA approves Covid booster shots (third jab)
  • WALES: UFO sighting
  • FRANCE: Mont Blanc keeps shrinking
  • INTERNATIONAL: Diet supplement sales through the roof due to the pandemic
  • EUROPE / INTERNATIONAL: Trust in scientists have dropped during the pandemic

120 years after the fact Alfred Nobel gets his own Prize – this week’s Really Right Award!

Enjoy!
