    Quote from article: "ROSAT’s heat-resistant mirror in particular may not burn up upon re-entry"

    Useful if it lands in my back garden - if it's heat-resistant then presumably it won't steam up if I put it in the bathroom?

    If it lands a few feet further forward you won't have a bathroom to put it in ;)

    hopefully it will land on a travellers tax-dodging hippy hole commune.

    Tongue firmly in cheek here I'm afraid.

    I'm a big, big fan of all the much-hyped, breathless, and usually wildly inaccurate doom laden dross our revered and admired press offer us.

    I think it is worthy of a wider audience so we can all join in the panic.

    Even if it doesn't land there that's where it'll most likely end up. Along with all that British Rail signalling and electricity sub-station copper!

    You aren't allowed to refer to them as pikeys any more apparently.

    You must call them ' Caravan Utilising Nomadic Travellers ' but you can just use the acronym if it's easier. ;)
