Why, hello! Hope you're doing well in this lovely lockdown. I do recommend having all these gadgets in your home, if only for something to talk about or get distracted by. Enjoy!

In November 2020, the International Space Station celebrated 20 years of its permanent human habitation. A major milestone for the world of astronautics and, as the world's space agencies say, for humanity itself. The assembly of the station began in late 1998 with the launch of the Russian-built module Zarya and the American Unity. It was completed in the early 2010s after the arrival of Tranquility with its trademark Earth-facing viewing platform Cupola. Consisting of 16 pressurised modules and a lot of supporting hardware, the station covers the size of a football pitch. Its construction stretched the technical as well as political skills of the partnering space agencies. With a construction cost of nearly £90bn and an annual running cost of nearly £3bn, it also stretched their budgets. This paper gives a brief overview of some of the most interesting or promising studies that have come out of the orbiting laboratory. These include: drug development and smart delivery, water recycling and air purification, artificial organs' growth, robotics, and combustion.

A key component in the UK's ambition to become a powerhouse in the space industry is to have indigenous launch capabilities. How well is progress going? Space business in Britain appears to be booming. According to the UK Space Agency's 2020-21 corporate plan, the sector currently makes “a substantial contribution to UK prosperity” by generating an income of £14.8bn, employing 42,000 people and supporting a further £300bn of economic activity through the use of satellite services.

Known as the mathematicians' artist, Maurits Escher is perhaps best known for his etchings. But for all his mathematical renown, he only gained widespread recognition after his death.
