I dunno, but you'd better try quick, Lamps and POL could arrive at any time.

As a matter of interest, anyone here know approximately how much fuel (ok, let's go for a liquid oxygen/hyrdogen mixture) it would take to get a 100kg, er, craft, from geostationary orbit to the moon?

For, ahem, pure curiosity sake.

You mean "You" don't ya?

And you're not in geostationary orbit, you're in Germany. It only feels like space due to the lack of atmosphere.....
