ENDEAVOUR ON ITS WAY TO THE STATION

The Space Shuttle Endeavour blasted off from Florida's Cape Canaveral last night at 3:06am GMT. The flawless launch was right on schedule, and in beautiful weather. During the 10-day STS-97 mission, the 5-astronaut crew will install the station's new $600m solar panels, containing a total of 64,000 photoelectric cells. The panels will provide enough electricity to power the three current modules, as well as the American laboratory, Destiny, which is due to be added in January.

PROTON LAUNCHES SIRIUS 3 SATELLITE

International Launch Services successfully launched the third Sirius digital radio satellite last night on board a Russian Proton rocket from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The launch was at 7:59pm GMT and separation occurred 2.5 hours later. The Sirius satellites will provide 100 channels of digital-quality radio to motorists in the United States. This is the 14th successful Proton launch this year.

XMM-NEWTON FINDS THE MOST DISTANT QUASAR

The European Space Agency's XMM-Newton X-Ray observatory has discovered what is believed to be the most distant quasar ever discovered. Quasars are the most luminous known objects in the universe - they can emit 1000 times the energy of our entire Galaxy, from a size no larger than our solar system. The targeted quasar, SDSS 1044-0125, has a Redshift of 5.80, which means it was present only 1 billion years after the Big Bang.
