Jupiter 2

It was 10 years ago today that the Jupiter 2 was lost in space. Who could forget where they were when they first heard the words:

"As of this moment, the spacecraft [Jupiter 2] has crossed the limits of our galaxy. It is presumed to be hopelessly lost in space."

Will we ever find out what happened to those intrepid Robinsons, and their pilot, Major West.

In related news, since launch day, NASA has been unable to track down a missing scientist. With the violence of take off, there is the possibility that Dr Smith was incinerated by the launch jets, leaving no trace of his body. Friends described him as being "erratic, but harmless".
