Reference Number: DCDL-0000047

Two businessmen are sitting side by side in a train, their briefcases on the floor beside them, on their way to work. They are both reading newspapers; the first has headlines from a NASA report saying that astronauts are oblivious to speed in prone positions and the second has headlines saying that Clark and Sutton were unaware of the speed of the motorcade. Refers to the fact that astronauts in a prone position don't feel speed, made in the context of the space shuttle 'Discovery's' successful launch and return to Earth, and also to the speeding charge brought against members of a motorcade trying to get Prime minister, Helen Clark, to a rugby match on time.
