An excerpt from a BBC News story about a new Russian missile:

“Colonel Baluyevsky gave few details of the new missile which was tested on Wednesday, but said it was one that moved five times the speed of light.”

Wow, that’s some seriously good engineering they’ve got over there in Russia. If I lived in the US, I’d be afraid.

    i just checked the link- it says it’s five times the speed of sound:have they corrected it or was it your sci-fi driven imagination?;)
    no offences,please!:)

    Nope, it was definitely ‘five times the speed of light’ when I read it :) I expected them to correct it fairly quickly, it’s a pretty obvious error, but funny nonetheless.
