Mallard or Mullard?

| Comments

Looking at the news that NASA may support the UK plans to launch a Moon orbiter I couldn't help but chuckle at a comment made by Alan Smith of the Mullard Space Sciences Laboratory:

  "We've got to get our ducks in order, but I think the plan ticks all the right boxes and it's extremely likely that we will have the first British mission to the moon launched in 2012,"

 Should someone from Mullard use the phrase "Ducks in a row"? Mullard? Mallard? Oh dear.
