    Thanks for the link, adrian. I'd watch it if it wasn't at about 3 am my time.

    A lot of the equippment used in American missions actually comes from Europe. I know because whenever NASA fires something into space, European news channels have to highlight time and again that this or that one little piece was produced and designed in Europe. Even if it's only the toilet on the ISS


    Anyway, I think your posts sucks

    darksaidin, just ignore Xterria. Everyone else has learned too. His mom and dad let him use their computer, and this is what we get. His remarks are not intelligent, so we just tend to skip right over them.

    Launch delayed 24 hours because of high winds at Kourou.

    If you click on Xterria's "profile" button at the bottom of gis post, you then have the option to add him to your "ignore" list.

    Thanks
    I didn't take his post seriously though, otherwise I would have startet a long reply about why his post sucks


    Anyway, I really hope they won't have to delay it past the 17. March as it would mean they can't reach the coment anymore and would have to pick another target. Like last time.

    Your signature perfectly ends that post.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    I think it is a different issue here. It was probably broken off during transport and not during the launch (how could it, it's still on the ground )
    Maybe they should already start to look for another comet...
