SpaceX historic launch: Meet the 600th human blasted into the cosmos

November 11, 2021

Four astronauts blasted off on Wednesday night - after being delayed by nearly two weeks. The 600th person to travel to space - astronaut Matthias Maurer - talked to us before his historical launch on a SpaceX rocket. Elon Musk goes through with the results of his Twitter poll and sells $5billion of his Tesla shares. We speak to the retired GP who has discovered a dinosaur with an ‘unusually large nose' and find out about the study that’s given hundreds of patients with rare diseases a diagnosis for the first time. Plus, the new ‘soft robots’ which could be used to go inside the human body, the world’s most premature baby, venomous sharks found in the River Thames and an ancient hangover cure unearthed by archaeologists.
