BoxRec writes "Problems have arisen with the latest UK space launch to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the moon landing. According to a BBC report the 300 gram payload of cheese has disappeared from the radar screens somewhere over southern England. From the article, 'Dom Lane, of Shepton Mallet's West Country Farmhouse Cheesemakers group, told BBC Wiltshire: "We've been tracking the trajectory and the current prediction is that it could land anywhere from here in Wiltshire to Hemel Hempstead. The GPS isn't coming through on the web so we might need listeners' help to find it because we're not sure where it is at the moment."'" Update: 07/30 03:53 GMT by Samzenpus :The space cheese has been found.

300 GRAMs... not Pounds. (0)

Significant distinction in size, there.

That's 300 GRAMS, not pounds. (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#28869585)

That would make it about 3/4 pounds.
