Researchers get funding for "flying saucer" studies...
Inventors win funding for research into 'flying saucers'

By Sarah Gunthardt
A GROUP of dedicated space enthusiasts have won thousands of pounds from the East of England Development Agency (EEDA) to fund market research into their unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) ? better known as flying saucers.
Geoff Hatton and his team at GFS Projects Limited ? which stands for Geoff's Flying Saucer ? have spent the last seven years working on prototypes for realistic flying saucers.

hmmm....I wonder if this is associated with the "flying frisbees of death" that BOL talked about a few months ago...
