Petition o' the day, or 'To infinity! And beyond!'

"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Provide funding for UK manned space missions". Perhaps not the highest of priorities for the tax payer, but the petitioner has a rationale:

"To inspire a new generation into science the UK should eithier (sic) on its own or in co-operation fund manned space missions, with a goal to eventually land a British Astronaught (sic) on the Moon".

Just love the typo, meanwhile I can think of a few people I would like to send up while safety issues are being ironed out - Brown, Branson, Livingstone, Jamie Oliver, Cherie Blair....

Hallo C . Now back from an extended perambulation and with the wanderlust settled for the moment, I shall again be peppering your blog with irreverent (or more likely, irrelevant)comments, starting now.

Did not the Brits recently send to the moon something or other which on landing failed/refused to work? If that is the relevant criterion, maybe for their next try whoever it is could perhaps load the whole Cabinet on board.

Nomad - nice to have you back. Is it the ill-fated Beagle 2 mission to Mars you were thinking of? It only cost the taxpayer £22m.....

Yes, that's the one/ What a mine of information you are!

Nice to be back too.
