Artemis 1 now in record-breaking lunar orbit
Mission Control at NASA's Johnson Space Center has confirmed that the uncrewed Artemis 1 mission has achieved lunar orbit. After an orbital maneuvering engine burn lasting 88 seconds, the spacecraft entered a distant retrograde orbit that is so large it will carry the Orion spacecraft beyond the Lagrange 2 point where the gravitational forces of the Earth and Moon cancel one another out. The craft will travel at an altitude of around 40,000 miles (54,000 km) above the Moon.

Royal Navy's first Type 26 frigate is launched - very, very slowly
The first of the Royal Navy's Type 26 City Class frigates, HMS Glasgow, has begun a very slow launch at BAE Systems' Govan shipyard in Scotland. Rather than sliding into the water with a dramatic splash, the 6,000-tonne warship will be shifted through a complex series of maneuvers onto a special barge that will be towed downriver for several days before being slowly lowered into the water over a number of hours.

The Porsche 911 has a proud history as a legit off-road competitor, from winning Dakar back in 1984 to climbing the world's tallest volcano just last week.

It's both a full-time camper van and a full-time passenger van, with very little compromise.
