*Usually* mean well?! [In reply to] Can't Post

I mean well all the time JWPlatt Wink.

I don't deny the stupidity of this exploration. But nonetheless, it is a huge achievement for science, engineering and human endeavor. On a more personal note, the scientific data that will come out of this will be most magnificent. As a meteorologist myself, we never send weather balloons up that high. Atmospheric measurements at this height are almost un-heard of. So it's not just about one man's crazy idea, it's about everyone behind it, and what else we can get out of it.

There is certainly more that was achieved, than a man achieving a very stupid dream!

And while I can think of 1000 better things this money could've been spent on, it's only a drop in the ocean compared to the combined wages of footballers wages in the UK, or the £3 billion proposed train-line the UK government want to build ....
