This is exciting to me. Just another reason to be fond of Japan. Hats off to these fine, fun, upbeat ladies! I'd be pleased to meet them all in person.

I'd consider it if we actually land on the moon. Going 220k + miles into trans lunar orbit is spectacular but somehow dispiriting. Had the same feeling for Christmas 1968 NASA Astros. It the final 50 miles to the lunar surface that is the best rush!

Excellent. Very versatile if the automated navigation is comprehensive and not restricted to a small territory. Human minds are too valuable to waste sitting in traffic jams and fuming over unavoidable traffic antagonisms. This is the future and it is very promising.

The solution to this problem is staring people in the face. It is an unpalatable one. Things must be allowed to take their natural course. Let me explain.
The methodology that exists to deal with this catastrophe seems to emphasis its wildfire characteristics. It is clearly not a fire, and not an atomic one as well. The uncontrolled nuclear cores want to fission and right away. At Chernobyl this happened and the results were terrible. It could have been a lot worse. Once the cores overheat and explode, a small % of the harmful radioactive material available is dispersed.
Due to the mitigation efforts at Fukishima this is not being allowed to happen. All of the available core is being allowed to contaminate the environment.

If the people want to make money, you better let them. Morality and Money don't Mix.

These type of confrontations are very common throughout the history of nation states. No doubt the most effective response is already known by the foreign policy experts. My guess would be that a response that is equal in kind would be appropriate. Some cost must be attached to these "flyovers" else they will continue. The Chinese plane should have been intercepted and forced to land on Japanese territory. Negotiations would have then commenced in order to secure the air crew's release. Alternatively, an overflight by a Japanese military aircraft should be made over Chinese airspace. To allow these provocations to continue w/o a commensurate response is to court disaster.
