There was a good example of scientific illiteracy on the NBC news last
night (Mon). In talking about the attempt of the shuttle crew to get
the Spartan satellite, the reporter said that it might seem easier than
it really is because it looks as if both shuttle & satellite are almost
at rest, but _really_ they're moving at 17,000 mph.
