Monroe County Coroner accidently shoots self in leg – while doing a gun safety demonstration.  Doh!

NASA planned to have a probe that’s been whipping around the solar system, drop a disc, travelling 25000kph, have it deploy a parachute in the upper atmosphere, and have 2 helicopters pluck it from the sky. What could go wrong?  Duh!

Hmmmm…..Time for plan B
