Well NASA probably got where they got in space by robbing all of the UK's best scientists anway, as well as other countries smartest people. I'm sure if they UK had the money and it's own space program we would be leading the way in space.

Damn right John!

What we could do if we had american backing, instead of us backing americans.

*enormous british blag unravels behind him and chords of land and hope and glory begin to play*

Yes, some of the most neccessary items we have today have been built in Britain (*cough* Scotland *cough) and i think we could do well in space on our own.

Just imagine trying to launch a rocket from Lewis or the Shetlands.

Spook the sheep!
BAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Sure, if you guys ever get a clear day, to actually launch that is, hehe....


Ahh...just kiddin'

Well, I'm not surprised at all... Nor will I be surprised when they announce that they've analyzed the water samples from the rover, and found what appear to be micro-organisms... They're simply easing us into the greater announcement.....
