To go where no woman or man has gone before?

"The Heavy Water War"

A superb six-part series on Amazon Prime.

As is so often the case with Prime and Netflix, all of the actors and actresses are unknown to me — with the exception of the great Anna Friel.

Highly recommended.

If you want some back story before watching, have a look here and here.

Remember how great those MagSafe power connectors were, and how no one could understand why Apple stopped making them?

You don't?

Oh. 

Never mind.

From the website:

As cool as USB-C is, many of us were sad when Apple killed off MagSafe, which has undoubtedly saved the lives of countless laptops over the years.

That disappointment led us to a key insight: Why not place the magnetic breakaway connection at the outlet?

Tug works with any power cord.

It also works as a quick switch: just tug to turn off a vacuum or lamp.
