For those of us who grew up in the 1960s and 1970s some good news was revealed by Craig Hoyle on Flightglobal’s Dew Line blog – Click Here. The Thunderbirds science fiction TV series is to return! F-A-B! The series and those other puppet and live action series from the Gerry Anderson’s Century 21 stable (Fireball XL5, UFO and Space 1999) have inspired many a space engineer of today. Hyperbola’s favourite episode was, of course, using Thunderbird 3 to rescue the error-prone spacewalker who was floating away to oblivion.
