"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."

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...
