A Merry Christmas to all of our readers and a Happy and Prosperous New Year

At this time of year we at Hyperbola like to have a little fun at the expense of  the great and the good…including SpaceX leader, Elon Musk.  So here is our Christmas card to you all.  Sorry Elon!

Ho! Ho! Ho!  So what do you want for Christmas young Elon?  ...This remains a tricky question to ask a happy and contented billionaire with successful rocket and electric car companies as well as a James Bond submarine car.

There is, of course, a lot of fun to be had including parties, family gatherings, and a good few jokes.  Best space-related Christmas image so far  is of “Father Christmas in Space”  which is shown in the Daily Mail:

However,  it is important that we also remember that this time of year can also be sad for many as they remember those missing though bereavement, lost love, or physical separation.  Likewise, some may also be suffering due to illness, financial woes or other worries.  To all of these, we give our best wishes and hope that they can enjoy Christmas as best they can.

Hyperbola will be working hard to keep you informed next year. albeit under different colours when Hyperbola  amicably moves from Flightglobal to Seradata (www.seradata.com).

The Hyperbola space intelligence news service/blog would like to wish its readers (and if you will excuse the indulgence, ourselves) a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
