No, actually, we do.
1) We need some kind of awe inspiring engineering project to get people back interested in science and engineering
2) Look at the guy who is in charge of the rockets. Just look. He's 24 and has that tache. Wow!!! The car is using both a rocket and a jet from the new Eurofighter, but it is using a boffin taken straight from a Spitfire fighter cockpit.
