If Brunel University goes bust, then its most famous professor, Heinz Wolff, will know why. Wolff, Director of Bio-engineering was chairing a P and P Corporate Systems conference on computer downsizing, when he was heard, perhaps prompted by the word 'downsizing', to mutter something about the Moscow Narodny Bank owing the university some £400,000.

This, it appeared, was for work on zero gravity (an ominous title perhaps, in view of what transpired) on the Juno space mission. Judging by reports of the Russia's straitened circumstances, being a Wolff at the door is likely to be futile.
