Next stop Afghanistan.

Steve Daniels and John Oates, of The Register website, embarked on a project to "reinvigorate the British space race" with the launch of a paper aeroplane into space.

Defence Secretary, Liam Fox was so impressed with the cost saving of the lightweight aeroplane that he has ordered the next generation of fighter aircraft to be built using the same technology and is hoping that a similar result can be had with sea fairing vessels made with wax dipped paper aircraft carriers.

The aeroplanes need less runway to take off from, a further potential saving as aircraft carriers wouldn't need to be as long as the old outdated metal style boats, due to the aircraft being light enough, even with a pilot on-board, to be lobbed off the end of any moving platform by a couple of stout yeoman.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
