Second time is lucky too it seems. Hungarian ex-Microsoft Billionaire Charles Simonyi has landed safely after his second space-tourist mission.

I am living in Budapest for a while and so taking an interest in anything Hungarian in the news these days. Most of it is economic doom and gloom - the country recently lost its Prime Minister - but Simonyi's space flight, and the fact he is rolling in cash, is a welcome positive story.

Charles Simonyi is one of the lead creators of Microsoft Office. Wikipedia has all the skinny. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Simonyi
