It Makes You Proud To Be English

Observatory

Shuttle

Britain’s aspirations to become a spacefaring nation have inched closer as a bunch of worms from a Bristol rubbish dump boarded the Atlantis space shuttle at Cape Canaveral for a mission to a $100bn international space station. They will be studied in its weightless confines as research for scientists to explain how astronauts build and lose muscle as they circle the Earth.
When they get back they will probably go down Oxford Street on a bus and turn on the Regent Street lights before appearing with Graham Norton.
