Sad news for Eurostar passengers. This is what Brexit wanted.
I’ve ridden this train and it was pretty good!
Eurostar has cut the number of seats by 30% and is pushing up its fares.
Why? Extra post-Brexit passport checks mean London St Pancras can handle only 1,500 passengers per hour, down from 2,200.
The boss of the Channel Tunnel train firm says it can't go on

IMPACT SUCCESS! Watch from #DARTMIssion’s DRACO Camera, as the vending machine-sized spacecraft successfully collides with asteroid Dimorphos, which is the size of a football stadium and poses no threat to Earth.
Less than one full kettle boiling to impact.
NASA is streaming live views from the DART spacecraft as it speeds toward a collision with an asteroid at 7:14pm EDT (2314 GMT) in the agency's first planetary defense experiment. Watch here as the asteroid grows larger in the field of view: https://spaceflightnow.com/2022/09/26/dart-impact-mission-status-center/
uhh do you really want to find out what happens when we STOP watching them https://twitter.com/LostFelicia/status/1574408225956548609
Tonight, the world's first planetary defense test will take place, the Double Asteroid Redirection Test. At 7:14pm ET, DART’s impact will slow Dimorphos down, which will make it orbit Didymos faster. This technique could save Earth one day - the only preventable natural disaster.

This pīwakawaka seems to have lost something…
Eeek I've finally managed to teach a pīwakawaka pair that there are plenty of little flies in my compost bin for them to eat. The male spotted the aerial buffet when I opened the bin & caught a few before feeding them to his female companion. They must be getting ready to nest 🥰
Every time a non-Māori posts a pic of a pīwakawaka on here I wince.
This little Piwakawaka was buzzing around while we stopped for a snack. I wonder if the nest was nearby

My very scientific and completely-to-scale identification chart for urban introduced bird species ahead of the @email@example.com and @OSNZBirdsNZ@twitter.com 5MBC session tomorrow - a great way for newbies to learn some bird ID skills!
Three waters really scares me. All my life I've only had a hot and a cold tap. What will come out of the third tap? The government needs to be more transparent.
