CNN: "SpaceShipOne goes for orbit again"
http://musicalgearbox.com/cnnorbit.jpg
Anyone who has a clue (and not the headline writer at CNN) knows this thing goes straight up, barely past the 62-mile height that is considered "outer space" and straight back down, and is nowhere near making it into orbit around Earth or any other body.

I recall CNN newsanchor banter a few months ago after some odd story I don't remember: "Maybe it REALLY WAS a UFO!" Of cource, if it's unidentified and up in the sky, then it is by definition an Unidentified Flying Object.

My apologies if you don't need these explanations.

This is for presenting interesting links showing media curiosities, mistakes, hoaxes, and related. One example is shown here: the space shuttle said to be traveling at 18 times the speed of light:
