Re: Erm...

Although there's no German equivalent to boffin, and so it might have been a valid translation, the article appeared in Die Zeit, not Bild, and so Wissenschaftler must unfortunately be translated as scientists. (but reading it made me smile...)

Yep, I had to have a bit of a chuckle at that. No offense meant, Lester, but you guys are not scientists. More like drunk reporters having a larf (Ang on, lads, we could make a paper aeroplane and send it into space! That'd be so cool! So who's round is it?)

And will it be called "LOHAN Behold"?

Just goes to show...

how much the typical journalist understands about space technology. Or Paris. Or scientists. Or indeed anything at all. Not you, our true heroes from El Reg, of course, no offense meant!

„britische Forscher“

I think that britische Forscher might be more closely translated as “British researchers” (Forschung is research; Wissenschaft is science).

Paper Plane Post?

took the Zeit (time) some time to receive the news

of El Reg´s endevour.

Seems they used paperplanes to get the message across the Channel.

The logo on the wing looks more like a swan than a vulture. Does that make Lohan an ugly duckling?
