Stayin’ alive

After a hectic first three days of headline making, Paris must be slowing down, as Reuters took time out to interview actor, pilot and show visitor John Travolta, “looking relaxed and wearing sunglasses and trainers” (obviously not a journalist, then). He talks about flying the A380, which Reuters, ever the business newswire, uses as an opportunity to mention the A380 delays and EADS troubles. “I was the first non-test pilot to fly that and I’m telling you it’s a very easy plane to fly, but technically complicated,” he says. Travolta says he is due to fly Boeing’s F/A-18F Super Hornet fighter at Paris on Saturday, but insists he is not at the show shopping for something to park next to the 707 on his private runway.

    Dear Fellow Scientist,

    NASA’s rocket technology not for real space exploration but here is one.

    Sir, don’t be dismayed to see how little information there is on the internet. Despite that, I hope you totally understand my need for anonymity. Assuming that the technology is as effective as I say it is, releasing it to the public in all its splendor could make the world think that a) I am off my rocker, b) that I’m completely wrong or c) just some sci-fi aficionado who’s gone a bit too far.

    Sad state of affairs, but hey, that’s the price of true innovation right?
