Synopsis:

Of Spheres, and Rock Art and a Pandemic

We talked about the "Venus Life Finder Mission" led by some folks from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It's not going to look at the surface of Venus for signs of life, it's going to look at a cloud layer 37 miles above the surface.

Some people are still saying that the pandemic is about over, but the death rate from COVID~19 is again higher this week than it was last week.

We talked about the revelations that Trump was trying to appoint conspiracy nutcase Sidney Powell as a special counsel to overturn the 2020, election.

There are bad people doing bad things in the world.
