Post Top Gear Space Shuttle   Posted on: Mon Feb 19, 2007 9:20 am
For those in the UK who saw Top Gear on television last night - I thought the effort to launch a Reliant Robin three wheeler was extremely impressive, and I cannot figure out how the BBC could afford to do even what was shown. If the external tank sep bolt hadn't failed, it would have been an even more brilliant bit of TV.

Those who haven't seen it yet, I am sure it's already on YouTube!! Well worth a look!!
