QUIKSCAT SUCCESSFULLY DEPLOYS

NASA's QuikScat weather satellite has successful reached its

initial elliptical orbit of 800km above the Earth's surface,

and deployed its solar panels. The satellite will fire its

thrusters another 25 times to perfect its final orbit, and

begin its mission a month from now.

COSMONAUT SPENDS LONGEST time IN SPACE

Russian cosmonaut Sergei Avdeyev has spent more time in space

than anyone else - currently 681 days over 6 missions. With Mir

due to be destroyed later this year, it's unlikely his record

will be broken any time soon.
