"The prototype can be used anywhere, but is usually tested over water because of how dangerously high it can fly Catalin said following the successful flight."

What could possibly go wrong.

How about a charlie-horse?
Dropping 10 feet into water doesn't bother most folks, but with only a minute and a half of 'air time', I'd hope it wouldn't take 2 minutes to 'fly' up to the top of Hyperion...they didn't say anything about "auto-rotating" down!

Lucas-
Not the chocolate chip type, but computer-wise "cookies" which the site sneaks into your computer and picks up the places you visit.  From there, they can go a lot of places with such data, some friendly and helpful, some not.
Generally, I keep my security up and deny cookies...I have lately let down my 'defenses'.  Back they go...
