That's crazy. There is no way that I am walking on that.

El Chorro is a limestone gorge in Andalusia in southern Spain, through which passes the Guadalhorce river. It was dammed in 1921, forming three reservoirs which are flanked by pine forests.

It sits next to the 700m high Desfiladero de los Gaitanes pass, and is famous for the very dangerous path called Caminito del Rey (King's little pathway). The path took its name because it was officially opened by Alfonso XIII of Spain. However official access to the path was removed in 2000 after a tourist died trying to cross it. According to a tourist leaflet, four tourists died during the two years before the closure. There are now movements afoot (as of October 2008) by the local council in Ardales to secure funding to restore the path although any work is not expected to happen before 2010 with completion maybe in 2012.

+Victoria Nigar created a poster. I thought it might need a bit of work to make it more convincing, so I've helped her out.

The launch is now over and NASA is live streaming a space-themed Tweetup.

The good news is: We're still exploring space. The bad news is, I don't think we're investing anywhere near enough money in it, and we're not progressing fast enough.

Steven Hawking said this week that human survival depends on our ability to find other places to live. To quote him: “Our population and our use of the finite resources of planet Earth are growing exponentially, along with our technical ability to change the environment for good or ill .... It will be difficult enough to avoid disaster in the next hundred years, let alone the next thousand or million."

Unfortunately the public seems to have lost interest in funding these efforts and we're increasingly reliant on commercial efforts -- entrepreneurs like Elon Musk, Richard Branson et al -- to further our progress.

Let's hope they pull through.

I will now resume my morning's review of the artist Cameo, the social and political insight of their lyrics is provocative.
