Endeavour launched

The endeavour has been launched for a long trip to the international space station.

The launch from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, Florida, was a beautiful sight, according to witnesses.
This time it was special because it was nighttime.

This will be the longest space station mission ever: 16 days!

Some goals are to build a Canadian robot and construct part of a Japanese science module.

% space walks are planned.

So there are many records to break on this trip.

Let's hope the 7 astronauts will return safe and sound


Stormwarnings in europe

Stormwarnings are issued for the UK and coast of the continent of Europe.

For the Devon and Cornwall coast severe flood warnings have been issued and 44 other warnings in locations including southern England, and the Severn and Mersey estuaries.

This might be the worst storm of this winter.
England and Wales should reckon with winds of up to 80mph (130km/h).

Blizzards and heavy snow are expected for Scotland.

Ferries have been delayed or cancelled, including those between Dover and Callais.

Steve Winston, Cornwall's emergency planning officer, said a combination of factors, including high spring tides and a very low pressure system, could lead to a "severe" event.
