Damn yuu El Reg!
This article has cost me £33.
although it's not clear exactly where
From email@example.com apparently (the things I do for El Reg.). Not that I'm going to trust my card details to email..
"soon to be entirely reliant on Russian Soyuz ships"
It always has been as far as crews are concerned. A Soyuz can and does stay up for six months to serve as a lifeboat if needed. The Shuttle is limited to two weeks in orbit.
I think The Sun shot itself in the foot there
John Humphrys said he spent £500 a year on papers. Small change to him, but not to many.
If I bought newspapers daily, the article would have made me think that I had better things to do with £500.
most are staffed by only one person, in a small partitioned off area in convenience stores. The larger ones have a permanent long queue. They don't eve have enough staff to keep all the positions open.
Re Why not just ignore Israel from now on #
Name me a recent war that hasn't involved killing civilians. Both sides bombers in World War 2 deliberately targeted them.
Palestine fighters do put civilian at risk by operating out of civilian areas. And how is a state sponsored assassination with no collateral damage worse than alternative ways of getting him?
Stable door meet door frame
Pointless, even if vistors had a choice.. By now, Mossad will have copied more passports than they will ever need.
If they were responsible, that is. I still can't see why they would use the UK passports of those resident in their country.
Well it was St Patrick's Day
The one day in the year when a leprechaun might not attract attention.
I for one, welcome our new gun toting supernatural overlords. Come and try and rob our banks if you're 'ard enough.
Not to mention the fines
when they do a moonlit flit, and don't notify the change of address. Perhaps she expects the banks to pay them as well.
Who in their right mind would buy a card two months before the next government may cancel it?
Malware that will cause batteries to explode?
Mine's the one that has just burst into flames.
A rather pathetic acronym.
"Robotic Underground Munition - Bomb at bunker aimed..
I was just pointing out that it was a minor problem, identified and rectified before the El Reg article.
And the engine test went flawlessly. Looking good for an April 12 launch.
It wasn't a problem with the rocket.
A valve on a ground based high pressure helium line didn't open because the launch sequence computer wasn't programmed to open it. The ground equipment at the Texas test stand doesn't have that particular valve.
If the weather had allowed, SpaceX would have had another go yesterday. They are only waiting for better weather now.
"There was no explanation for the apparent drop in interest. "
There is always a rush of early adopters when something new becomes available.
"make more sense to look for such a thing on the Moon"
Such as a monolith?
There's nothing new in this article.
Not one of the best
El Reg Playmobil reconstructions.
Robots are better for taking photos from orbit, but you need boots on the ground to do any serious geology.
We'd learn far more from even one manned mission and the half ton of rock samples it could bring back, than from all the probes landed over the past 35 years.
And I would like to live to see it.
No, you aren't.
Mossad could probably have won the Afghan war with that number of people.
Will nobody think of the vulnerable adults?
The audience could be full of them.
I can't believe this will change anything. Opposition parties oppose. There's no reason to think that a future Tory Home Secretary will spare him.
It will probably just trigger a new round of judicial reviews.
Is this comment fresh enough?
I have had dealings with a hired killer.
