The news, which you've all probably read by now, but then Snealk is being a bit slow this week, is that noveau riche super internet mogul-type character Sergey Brin has put a downpayment of a lot-of-million dollars on a space flight to the International Space Station. Take off isn't for a couple of years yet, apparently, so the Google co-founder has plenty of time to think about what he's done, sorry, about what he's going to do up there.
So what exactly does a multi-billion dollar geek do with a few days to kill in zero gravity? Um, try and master the space toilets perhaps, or do those funny forward summersaults that every space traveller feels compelled to pull when they're on camera - yeah guys, seen it before (yawn). Or maybe he could think about how Google can twist the Yahoo knife a bit more in Microsoft's back.
