Europe launches super rocket

More good news from the European space program, as a new rocket able to launch 10 tons of payload into low earth orbit is tested successfully. The last twelve months have been very good for European efforts in space. In related news, the Americans have abandoned the Hubble space telescope, their one great success story of the last decade. President Bush wants to put humans on Mars instead, but he's not the first President to ask for Mars colonization, his dad beat him by 15 years.
