@Sheexy: Well, to everyone's credit, new thrusters have been developed and tested recently, by the British, I think? Ion Thrusters, I believe.
Though I have no recollection of how effective they're supposed to be...
Anyway, yeah, I've been living on a friend's couch for the past week or so... so that kinda counts as another planet! ^-^;
I need to get out more.
