SPACE STATION CREW MOVES IN

After arriving to the International Space Station on Sunday, Expedition 3 has moved into what will be their home for the next four-six months. The team consists of Commander Frank Culbertson, pilot Vladimir Dezhurov and flight engineer Mikhail Tyurin and they spent their first day transfering supplies from the Leondardo cargo module on board the shuttle. Discovery will remain docked until August 20, at which point command will transfer to the new crew.

SOLAR PLANE BEATS RECORD

A giant solar-powered flying wing has officially flown higher than any other non-rocket powered airplane ever. Over 5 hours after taking off from Barking Sands, Hawaii, NASA's 700kg Helios reached an altitude of 29,414 metres; however, it failed to reach the 30,480 metres they had set as a goal because of thinning air and slanting sunlight.

NASA DROP TESTS MARTIAN PLANE

NASA engineers successfully tested a prototype of an airplane that might eventually soar on Mars. Nicknamed "Orville", the craft was dropped from a balloon at an altitude of 30km above the NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA, where it floated down to a safe landing. If a future version of the airplane does make it to Mars, it will have a propeller capable of keeping it aloft in the thin Martian atmosphere.
