Gov.uk sites running ads bleeds your data
___________________________________________________________________________________________

Ads on gov.uk sites are allowed, with limitations, but NOT allowed is the selling of the collected personal data.

This has been happening in a stealth manner:

Lost in space!  And found again - space junk
___________________________________________________________________________________________

Japan has found a large segment of its 15yr old rocket.

This 3 tonne piece of junk, now found could be in theory be brought back down and recycled.  By a robot?!  Or manually?  But what happens when the manual attempt or robotic magic fails?  Nothing but more junk.

This is a growing problem:
