An anonymous reader writes: I have a question for engineers. With CNN and MSNBC covering the UFO sighting at an airport, and all other UFO sighting's, a thought popped into my head (We would have to assume that these UFO sightings are real). Can any engineers justify why a saucer shape seems to be the common choice for space travel? Of course I am only looking for theories.
