The Solution to the Mess That is 2020

Is obviously to rename it U.C. 1. 

This is still a work in progress, it's not finished or untethered yet, but it is looking really impressive. 

There's more on this here.  

Once finished, the robot will feature an incredible 24 degrees of freedom, meaning this thing will be able to walk.

The thing is supposed to be fully operational by October, and while its schedule was thrown into chaos by CoronaChan, it appears that they have now caught up and an October debut is a real possibility. 

So the giant anthropomorphic robot is being rushed into Japanese service during a time of growing military tensions punctuated by cyberwarfare developments was temporarily delayed by a global pandemic, reporting of which is being stymied by megacorporations censoring the reportage of news that might cut into the profits of pharmaceutical companies. While there is additional worrisome news like urban riots and most young people in the developed world being addicted to a brain prosthetic. There is also a strong push to immigrate off planet, perhaps having the first settlers on Mars by 2024

Dude....the future we read about as kids is here!

3 Given that a couple years later after Operation British, yet another space colony crashed into North America...Maybe Ace's much touted 'Sweet Meteorite of Death' will actually come true.

Incidentally, one positive thing that happened on Youtube this year - they started officially posting the soundtracks from the various Gundam titles the same way they post music from labels.
