Satellite of Love

What a bummer that the Pacific Fibre idea has burned out. We're stuck with the Southern Cross cable for monopoly pipe until the Otaki Space program gets capable of launching NZ's own communications satellite (FFS, do not let Telecom organise that project or it'll be CDMA all over again).

In other news, the biggest dune buggy to bugger around on another planet is not expected to burn out when it lands next week. Curiosity abides.
