back to article Vulture 2 spaceplane tumbles onto BBC World Service

We invite Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator (LOHAN) fans to stick the kettle on, make a nice cuppa and enjoy a recent interview myself and Vulture 2 rocket motor wrangler Paul "Lord Shax" Shackleton did with Gareth Mitchell for the BBC World Service's Click. Good stuff, and we'd like to add that the Southampton Uni design …

Any idea of the expected launch month/year yet?

Cheers.

"Still waiting on the FAA. Sigh."

You could always launch another KickStarter to build that Spanish explosives factory...

Re: old news?

First I heard of it was today. You'll excuse us for not having a entire world's media monitoring team working 24/7.

Avionics pod?????

Shirly that's an Avionics Podule?

Admittadly Lester did pause (enough to be called out on it in Just A Minute, the game we love to play), possibly as the brain churned over rapidly to make a snap decision on whether the listeners would understand what a podule is. Sadly he went with pod instead of podule.

I hope you dropped a mention to Exasol at some point... and you really should have some sponsor badges on your boffin coat.
