On my HP laptop, which is running 24/7 since 2012, I have increased the RAM to 8 GB, changed the hard disk from HD to SSD, removed a damaged SSD, installed a hybrid SSD/HD and replaced the battery. All without problems. It is now running GPUGRID CPU tasks on Linux.

Well,Aksel Munthe ran from Finland to Messina to help the survivors of the 1908 quake and tsunami, like he narrates in his book "Story of San Michele". There was an article on La Repubblica Friday magazine about today's Capri and its problems with too many tourists. Munthe was not mentioned.

Our Edoardo Amaldi, the follower of the Fermi tradition in Italian physics, has put a condition for the founding of both CERN and ESRO,now ESA. No military research. CERN and ESA will not cooperate with a military space station. But I am not against the Russian people, my father had to go to Russia as a soldier during last war and when he came back in 1943 and refused to join the Fascist army he spoke to me about the qualities of the Russian people in harsh times.

ISS is an international space station and has welcomed people and experiments fro many countries,excluding China due to a stupid American decision. Will the Russian space station do the same? And will it launch from Baikonur, Kazakhstan?

I don't understand. Is Russia planning to build its own space station? China is certainly planning one in the Tiangong series launched by Long March rockets. As for the ISS, it is made up of 42 modules, 37 of which were orbited by the Shuttles, 5 by Russian rockets. Now Dragon has brought up ECOSTRESS, which is attached to the Japanese module and consists of an infrared radiometer capable of monitoring the Earth vegetation. It will fly back to Earth in August carrying scientific instruments and other loads. You say it is obsolete, but no Progress cargo rocket can do this.

NASA has discovered a 2 asteroids system, which rotate around their center of mass. They were detected by using Arecibo as a planetary radar and Green Bank as a telescope which received the radio waves reflected by the asteroids. You can read about this on the NASA site.

A 300 TeV neutrino has been detected by the IceCube neutrino observatory in Antarctica. With the help of the Fermi Large Area gamma-ray telescope in orbit and other telescopes in the EM spectrum its source was identified in a blazar (active galaxy with a huge black hole in its center) at a distance of 3.7 billion light years. The discovery has been reported on "Science" magazine.
As a footnote, Einstein@home BOINC project is processing FERMI data.

Aside from SpaceX, which is owned by Elon Musk, not Mask, NASA is building and testing a large launch vehicle ,Orion, which will provide a safety option for astronauts. It will be launched by the Space Launch System. SpaceX is a commercial supplier, not a Government agency, same as Orbital Sciences Corporation which also has demonstrated the capability to land a first stage. One should not make the mistake of confusing commercial suppliers with US Government agencies.

After the Tour stage I saw a recorded part of a Giro Rosa stage in Piacenza,with girls cycling and falling like men. The Maglia Rosa is a Dutch girl, but there are Italian, British, Swiss, German and American competing. Now they will ride mountains, but I don't have a map.

Comets have tails. I have a book by astronomer Paolo Maffei titled "La cometa di Halley" which covers most comets since early times up to 1984. All comets described, many by Chinese astronomers, had tails. They are mostly spherical objects with a tail, sometimes two tails. I also think that Oumuamua was not a comet.
