Why is it suddenly NASA's job to monitor global warming?
Suddenly? Earth observation has been there from the beginning. NASA built the first TIROS weather satellite in 1960, the first LANDSAT in 1972.

Try to aim for the Channel Tunnel. If you make it to France and keep your course straight, you could make it all the way through the alps into Slovenia.
I'd imagine the express train trying to use the same rail-only tunnel could cause some discomfort.
(yes, I know a lot of the trains are car-carrying ones, but you're not driving if you're parked on a train)
A remake of Civilisation would fail as well.
Depends how you define "remake". I haven't played it, but I'd suspect "Civilization Revolution" has a lot of the original fundamental gameplay of the original. I'd call it a remake, but I guess you don't.
The universe is an island, surrounded by whatever it is that surrounds universes.
