You’ve got to hand it to the Americans, they know how to put on a show. Not only did they shoot a washing machine or something at a lump of rock hurtling around the solar system at 23,000 mph but they did it on the 4th of July.
(I love all that space malarkey, ever since Luke Spicewater first picked up his light sabre and destroyed Minger the Merciless.)
However, let’s not forget that the Europeans have got their own little comet sail going on and they’re going to land a fridge or something onto another lump of high-speed rock sometime in 2014.
So let me get this right, when the American’s have a comet mission they shoot the thing and when the European’s have a mission they end up occupying some of it’s territory … hmmmmm!
