Mars probes have it easy - it's all Newtonian Physics (with maybe a little Einsteinian Physics thrown in for special cases, - so it knows where it starts, where the destination is, and 99.999% of teh journey is just coasting, with no vector change required.

But roads and traffic don;t work like that: a truck decides to spend ten minutes overtaking another truck up a hill and everything else has to back off to half the speed limit; a variable speed limit kicks you down to 50 (and backs it up with enough cameras to lose you your licence in a couple of miles); and idiot decides to have a nap in lane three and a road is closed for six hours.

It's less than 5% difference, which is pretty damn good when you think about it: Windows can't do that well with file copying ... Laugh | :laugh:
