Ah, it's Saturday, and I have plans to spend a lot of time doing very little. But I still have time to find three articles from my mainstream media feeds about "what went right" rather than "what went wrong".

Loggerhead turtles at Gnaraloo enjoy bumper nesting season in boost for endangered species by Sarah Tallier (ABC Western Australia)

It's been a bumper nesting season for loggerhead turtles this year at Gnaraloo, on the Ningaloo coast - over four hundred nests have been spotted this season.

World Science Festival: Reef twilight zone offers coral and species protection by Maudy Veltema (ABC Queensland)

When we talk of coral reefs, we often think of shallow, warm water - but corals can live at depths up to 700m below the surface. Dr Tom Bridge, senior curator of Queensland Museum, studies coral species and ecosystems in the tricky-to study mesophotic zone between 50m to 150m underwater.

US Air Force installs remote-controlled telescope in Western Australia to monitor space junk by Emma Wynne (ABC Radio Perth, Western Australia)

The US Air Force is trying to keep track of approximately 20,000 human-manufactured objects in space, in order to try and either prevent, predict or deal with the fall-out of collisions between them. This latest telescope in Gingin is part of the Falcon project, which is aimed at giving the US air force oversight of all objects larger than 10cm in Earth's orbit.

So there's my three for the day. If you've found a story about "what went right" in your news feed, why not share a link to it in the comments, and boost the signal?
