Fred Watson Astronomer Lodge afraid. Lure Andrew, how're you doing? I'm quite well sir. How are you quite well to? Laura Sims, doesn't it and so we can? Go something much more to say. But we carry on regardless and there's plenty to talk about again this week. Including an update on the styling satellite program.
