Submission + - TopGear turns 3 wheeled car into a space shuttle

ahaveland writes: "I found this to be one of the most Nerd-entertaining things I've ever seen, and thought that it deserves a wider audience. Of course, launching a real space shuttle takes huge resources as lives are at stake, but this mock-up of a space shuttle using an old car as the orbiter strapped to a booster rockets with over 8 tons of thrust really shows what one can do with a modest budget in the name of a bit of silliness, while also becoming the biggest non-commercial rocket launch in European history. The presenters of the program really know how to have fun, and entertain their audience!
Video clips may be found on, search for "topgear shuttle". Whole program is about 20 minutes in duration.
Production notes are on the TopGear website, /shuttle.shtml"

Real computer scientists like having a computer on their desk, else how could they read their mail?
