    Sky news... don't you just love them

    http://news.sky.com/story/space-plan...orida-10868361

    The X-37B, which looks like a miniature space shuttle, touched down on Sunday morning, causing a sonic boom as it landed on a runway once used for space shuttles which have been mothballed.
    Wow, touching down at supersonic speeds... I bet the brakes were hot by the end of the runway

    A touchdown at supersonic speed? They should get their facts right!

    Well re-entry speed is very high, surely that results in a nice sonic boom even though it's at high altitude. If you say re-entry phase = landing phase, the article is correct. They didn't say sonic boom at touchdown.
    How can less be more? It's impossible. More is more.

    They are retards for the most part, but there is also an insidious bias according to the country they favour when reporting anything to do with combat missions - it goes like this:

    Friendly: "Aircraft carried out strikes on infrastructure targets early today."

    Unfriendly: "Warplanes made unprovoked attacks on hospitals, killing many innocent children."

    They are pretty much capable of skewing any story to fit in with whatever mood they want to provoke on the day - the only rational response I found that works is to scream loudly at the TV.....
