Douglas Dakota picking up a glider, Normandy; Second World W

Illustration showing a Douglas Dakota, C-47 Skytrain, swooping down with a hook trailing to pick up a Waco glider, Normandy, France, 1944. This system of launching and towing a glider was designed as a time-saving measure, so that tug aircraft, such as the Dakota, could pick up gliders without landing. This illustration was made by the Illustrated London News special artist, C.E. Turner using information supplied by the US Ninth Air Force

International Space Station solar panels Featured 18 Oct 2004 Print

International Space Station solar panels

International Space Station (ISS) solar panels over a limb of the Earth. This is the starboard array on the P6 truss. A total of eight arrays are to be installed. Each array is 33 by 12 metres. The central mast supports two blankets of 84 solar panels with 200 solar cells per panel. The arrays will provide 246 kilowatts of power, equivalent to powering 200 homes. Photographed on 4 December 2000, during mission STS-97 by the Space Shuttle Endeavour. The ISS is a joint effort between the space agencies of the USA, Europe, Russia, Canada, Japan and Brazil. It orbits at an altitude of 350 kilometres, has been manned since October 2000 and is scheduled for completion in 2004
