A little bit of stuff that I thought I'd make mention of. Not necessarily from today.

Isn't NASA feeling relieved at the moment- a successful return of the Discovery. Of course, the shuttle may never fly again. I'd like to know why there has apparently been very little done to come up with a better system instead of the heatshield tiles. Lets face it, it is 24 years since the first launch, however many more to when it was designed. Are you seriously telling me that the advances in science and technology have not created a solution to the tile problem...i.e. they aren't very solid, and are glued on? Surely a skin could be created. Oh well, I suppose we should look to people like Burt Rutan and the Scaled Composites team for the future.

Paula Radcliffe - why all the fuss? She has not got my respect anymore since the Olympic she stopped in both races...not apparently through exhaustion. I don't think she has the mental focus to do it anymore unfortunately.

Hmm...Omar Bakri Mohammed - don't come back.

This is what happens when you spend too long on the make sure to actually go home.
