6:00 PM -- The Beeb brings us the latest news of the wacky British space program:

    A block of cheese launched into the upper atmosphere on Tuesday has been found undamaged in Buckinghamshire.

    The "interstellar cheddar" landed in Cressex - some 74 miles away - and was taken to High Wycombe police station on Wednesday night, the launch team said...

    It had been attached to a weather balloon which was launched from Wiltshire 18.6 miles (30km) into the atmosphere.

    The helium balloon carrying the payload had burst, indicating it had reached a considerable height in the upper atmosphere.
