"Worms in liquid form" FFS!

BBC, you can do *so* much better than this.

Let's just clarify. The worms are IN a liquid, they are not in "liquid
form". They were launched up into space in a broth, and they survived.
Great! Quite how much this aids human spacefaring is difficult to
assess, but at least we may be able to sup worm soup up there. That's
a result in itself, I suppose.

  1. Just a hyphen was missing from the title too. 'Liquid-living worms' conveys a picture entirely different from 'Liquid living worms'. :)
