Orange peel and telescopes

Today's good news: it seems that it's possible to make plastic out of orange peel and carbon dioxide. That's very cool, and it gives me hope that we might be able to go on using the plastics that we've become reliant on after the oil runs out.

Today's bad news: apparently the service mission to Hubble has been cancelled, due to the US Government not putting up the funds for it.
