There is no need to get all worked up about the future of AI. True verifiable artificial intelligence will be with us next year, as has been forecast every year since about 1963.

Re Heater connection wires
The lowest possible tech solution is to use two paper clips superglued to the motor with bare wires threaded through them. The disconnection force is minimal and there will be no trailing wires, The extra weight on the rocket will also be minimal.
The idea also has the advantage that it will be easy to test using a variety of paper clips as found in almost any office as no construction work is necessary.
Hello anonymous coward
Manufacturing...on its way out due to lack of investment in R&D and unable to compete with the big boys
Industry....name a few non financial British industries and apply the above comment
Banking....having to be bailed out by the government.
What is about the British that it seems a matter of pride to claim that they cannot understand what all this science stuff is about.
The problem really is that the manual was probably written by the CEO who also answers the phone, operates the injection moulding machine and puts out the garbage. To imply that his grasp of english is less than perfect would cause a severe loss of face, something to be avoided at all costs. I encountered this on a recent visit to China where my offers to correct any english language were met with an almost universal stony silence.
Really though I think the problem here is not the translation but users who really needs a manual to tell them how to use a USB memory device. If this is the case they (probably) would have difficulty if it was written by a native english speaking 'expert'.
