Welcome to the new, illustrated Adammic Express!
ADAMSVILLE, Primoria – Yesterday, AISA carried out its planned Andromeda 2 mission, a follow-up to the failed Andromeda 1 mission which took place on Foundation Day in April. This time, the weather was clear, and the instructions were followed perfectly. However, the Estes model rocket still refused to ignite. With another mission failure, the AISA staff are becoming increasingly disappointed – but the good news is that the cause of the fault can now be narrowed down. After returning to Tytannia from the Jagstonian Plains launch site, Director-Administrator Adam I hooked up an igniter, separate from the rocket, to the launch controller, and instead of seeing the expected short fizzing, there was no visual effect, showing that a short circuit within the launchpad and rocket were not responsible. Also, Sir Paul McKenna removed the batteries from the launch controller and tested them with electrical equipment, showing that they could provide a solid 9 volts. AISA has therefore determined that either the igniters or the launch controller are defective, and have announced their intention to email the suppliers of the equipment to try and obtain a replacement.
The AISA staff and Adammic observers look on bemusedly
In other news, version 1.2 of the empireofadammia.org.uk website has been launched. This new version includes a dynamic navigation drop-down menu, and a much-improved site hierarchy. It can be found here: http://empireofadammia.org.uk
Meanwhile, the Adammic Army has begun training again, with the Western Regiment under the command of Colonel Prince Jake in Tytannia Army Base yesterday where the troops used a bamboo rod they found as a makeshift spear. Nerf guns were also used for the first time.
Finally, the Ministry of Citizenship seems to finally be resuming the long-forgotten ID card project, with photographs being taken for them in Tytannia yesterday. HIM the Emperor also had a new official imperial photograph taken of himself, replacing the previous one taken last year which was before he acquired his iconic top hat. On the subject of the top hats, we can report that HIllH Princess Consort Sydney now also has a top hat – a much finer piece than the Emperor’s, it is a genuine vintage top hat, costing as much as $150 USD.

That is all for this week. Seek wisdom and honour, and long live the Empire!
