We should start small by colonizing the moon and mars in a realistic sense. This gives a chance for each of us to develop our own private SpaceX-like companies to develop craft and such. Basically my idea is get some good map images of mars and the moon and just work divide up the planet into small territorial areas. Perhaps just give them names instead of numbers.
Yesterday (the 5th) brought the emergence of a new WA delegate... me! Yes, I know, how the heck did SS get elected. But after preaching my ideas of a WA committee and the like, I got enough support. It had been a tie for most of the time, 3 for SN and 3 for me. But then Sirian said "to hell with it" (I may be just guessing) and voted for yours truly. I'll try to do my best and carry through on my election promises, one of them being to try and commend Skundi.
In the last 2 days the region has added 9 nations to it's ever growing population. 4 of them have come from The Hellenic Kingdom, which has now closed. But this has brought much activity to the RMB, some RP ideas, and the starting of a flag contest hosted by me (who else?) and co-hosted by Welsh Chubut one of our new nations and an expert flag connoisseur.
This did happen awhile ago, but I wanted to put the WA election and the MP ones in the same issue. Not much an eventful happening here. Gwentrev, North Cromch, Cousethii, Matroyska, and Sirian are our new MPs. We'll see what they do for the region in the coming weeks. So far they have voted in Saint Sully to be the acting Chief Justice as Zweites Preussen takes a break... which reminds me...
Our regional Chief Justice, co-founder of the TCC, and woodpecker enthusiast, has taken a break. In which to relax and gather their thoughts on how to continue with the construction of Aramos. To see their full declaration of a break see here:
I encourage everyone to check them out.
Odinburgh and Arangea
Odinburgh government secures new contract with private space technologies corp innovator and CEO Alexi Jeung of the Astra Space Tech Corps in developing a new space vehicle for civilian travel. It will closely work with Scalesburg as they work to unveil future plans. It is our hope that these small innovations will lead to bigger things and lead the way of exploring the galaxy expanding influence through new colonies on new worlds.
Chancellor Sebastian Bierlein says Vienna has "made great strides" concerning its space program. Many updates have been completed on Project Ares as well as the implementation of several other projects. "Hundreds of trillions" of dollars have been allocated to the Defense Ministry and Interstellar Command for this, with military applications receiving priority as well as enhanced civilian transportation.
Doing fine here. So Russians out of the blue have a vaccine which is merely untested. I find that so ironic considering avoiding the politics side of this. Still I am highly suspicious.
