The EU's moon probe was just intserted into lunar orbit today. With its super efficent ion drive (and a very high "MPG" route) it achieved and equivalent 5,000,000 MPG from earth orbit to lunar orbit.

Keep trying xcel! <VBG>

Apologies to the mod's and it *IS* OT. Lock or delete if you must, but this stellar (pun intended) MPG was just too good not to report here.

Yes sure but I am sure that if you "coast in neutral" like this thing did but in the direction of the sun, you would get much more than that.
