Dream Chaser is part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program to transport crew to the International Space Station and back to Earth by 2017. With the aim of developing an economical successor to the Space Shuttle, the Dream Chaser is the only lifting-body vehicle proposed in the programme. It will transport astronauts and critical cargo to low Earth orbit and land like an aircraft on a runway. The spacecraft can also serve as a platform for technology demonstrations, construction and repair in space, as well as a platform for crewed and un-crewed scientific missions. 
Dimensions: length: 9.00 m, Wing span: 7.00 m; Mass: 11 340 kg

Rosetta's target: comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko


There are hundreds of comets flying around the Solar System, each of them a potential target for ESA’s comet-chasing Rosetta mission. As the mission took shape, the science team was faced with the difficult task of sifting through these candidates until they identified a handful of suitable objects.

Radio amateur: DIY Rosetta tracking

Amateur radio astronomer Bertrand Pinel, located near Castelnaudary, France, 65km from Toulouse, successfully tracked Rosetta on 21 January at 10:00 UTC using his home-rigged 3.5m dish antenna and radio receiver.
After receiving Rosetta's X-band signal, he kindly sent in these photos to document his success. He said he was as excited as a kid at Christmas while waiting for his own 'AOS' using his (mini) tracking station.
