Intergalactic Idiots

It looks like some product of a university humanities department has written one of today's leaders in the Guardian. It seems the Sun is now about 4.5 light years from Earth! The Sun - as any 12 year old astronomer could tell you - is 1 AU away from earth or 149597871 kilometers that's an awful lot closer than 42750000000000 kilometers.

Update the readers editor has acknowledged the mistake.
