Project Gutenberg have blocked access to all 65 000 books for people in Germany.
A German copyright holder wanted them to remove 18 books. The books are still copyright in Germany but already public domain in USA.
A court ordered that it was sufficient to block access to the 18 book for Germans.
Gutenberg blocked all 65 000 books.
I question if we should allow space tourism at all at this point in history.
At a minimum we should demand that the CO2e emissions are captured before each trip.
Those companies should be net zero and not by planting trees, by direct air capture using technology.
I would go for A. They didn't fly an airplane to the moon. Launching yourself 100 km above ground and falling straight down again is a bit of an adventure.
But, If I could choose to stay on earth I would probably do that.
Unless, it was two weeks at the moon including a weekend trip to weightlessness in a freshly built space station. I would definitely do that.
That's the space tourism I want.*

If you *must* travel to space. Which trip do you choose? Why?
A: Sitting inside a capsule on top of a rocket. Capsule disconnect from rocket. The capsule lands with a parachute. (Bezos)
B: Sitting in a small airplane connected to a big airplane. Small airplane boost itself out the last little bit into 'space'. Airplanes lands separately (Branson)
Speeches and links around #FitFor55
Fit for 55 - highlights:
EU commission's proposal how to reduce emissions 55 % until 2030.
The actual PDF document "Fit for 55":
During 700 000 years (before the industrial revolution) CO2 was never above 300 ppm.
That's the natural maximum when the atmosphere is in balance.
