In Brief

No time to write a real post today. Instead:

* something cheery: parts of the Aral Sea, which once looked as though it would be wiped out completely by water mismanagement, are [making a comeback](

* something bizarrely cyberpunk: [Brazilians]( have been breaking into old US military satellites, and using them as ersatz orbital CB relays

* something thoughtful: [Eliane Glaser]( in the New Humanist, arguing that Snow’s ‘two cultures’ (science and the humanities, unable to talk to one another) are outmoded, and now we’re back to science vs. religion
