It should be noted that, as is typical of the BBC, the spelling error
has been corrected and there is now a biographical link to the first
astronomer royal. The BBC are really good about correcting factual
errors on their website. That's both archivally scary (Orwell
anyone?) and very nice.

But in full context they also have more today:
Europe names Galileo trailblazer

I think the BBC does not realize how the stories are connected.

The relevance between that and the LEAPSECS list becomes evident if
you take a really close reading of the following document.
