Funny you should say that about reading it on the BBC, I saw the news as it broke on BBC's twenty four hour news channel!
The Beeb can be a useless bunch on occasion, but they have a decent respect for, and coverage of the latest scientific news. I remember they were
quite good for coverage of the exploits of the team at the LHC, and they were right on the ball with this news too!
So, this milestone has officially been passed, but what I want to know is this:
When are the propulsion experts going to produce an engine capable of overtaking that incredible, improbably successful craft?
