For many years researchers believed aero-auto hybrid vehicles would be commercial failures; however, MIT scientists say they are on the way to overcome existing problems.

|Parties attack Brown election decision|
UK opposition parties say they are disappointed by Prime Minister Gordon Brown's decision not to call an autumn election. The Conservatives say Brown was frightened by opinion polls in the Sunday Times and News of the World which put the Tories ahead of Labor.
"I'll not be calling an election. I have a vision for change in Britain and I want to show people how in government we're implementing it," Brown said.
