A short note this week. There are two reasons; one personal and one interplanetary.

First, I took a few days off for my birthday. Even a newsletter obsessive has to live a little 🎉

Second, NASA’s Perseverance became the fifth rover to land on Mars. Looking at the first pictures it beamed back to Earth, and given the other worldly weirdness of the year we’ve just lived through, it felt a good moment to pause and reflect.

Enough preamble; just hit play!

I’ll be back on Wednesday with news and analysis in New Week Same Humans. Until then, be well,
