In These Streets

I’m going to do whatever Jenifer Lewis & Dem ask, especially if it means I get to listen to more like this.


Induction Driving

“Israeli startup Electroad is working to pave the way towards a greener world with technology that retrofits existing roads with buried coils to inductively charge electric vehicles.”

Roads that re-charge your electric car while you are driving! It is like science fiction, and also like we are all become trolleys. They’re doing a pilot program in Tel Aviv. Eeeeee!

Earthquake. I’m Fine.

Felt an earthquake. It’s not being reported on yet, but was probably around a 5 in central Italy. Just tremors at the coast, where I am. This is a placeholder for if/when you see a news story and worry about whether I’m fine. I’m fine.

There is also flooding and heavy snowstorms in the area, but again those are not exactly where I am.

Status of my apartment: rainy outside, could probably do with a spot of tea.

Godspeed, Gene Cernan

Godspeed, Gene Cernan. Very few people have seen the things you’ve seen, or felt the lunar gravity you’ve felt, and I will miss the comfort of knowing you are still out there. I often feel (as I think you did) that I am a single cell in the larger organism of humanity, so that all pain is my pain but each triumph is partly my triumph. I loved being able to share the Earth with you. You were my favorite astronaut.
