When the Casini probe was due to crash into Saturn the news said it was
running out of power in its nuclear generator. This was not only untrue, but
other bbc programs like BBC Inside Science had got it right, saying it was
low on fuel for the jets that pointed it when gyros were not suitable.
I just wonder why they do not actually get an expert in for news reports
when they are writing them. They did correct it afterwards, but really
shoddy work indeed. Does not bode well for other stories really. Brian
