How would you like a 39-foot hypersonic rocket to brighten up your lounge or garden? Not got the space? Well, then you may have already missed out on one of the most unusual items ever to go up for auction.

New computer software could track down missing people more quickly and efficiently. Details of people who've previously gone missing and where they were found, for example, are loaded onto an app which can be accessed on computers and mobile phones. Kent Search and Rescue then uses the data to try to locate the person if they disappear again. Tom Savvides talks to Stewart Baird from Kent Search and Rescue and computer specialist Stuart Kenny.
How safe is the air we breathe on planes? Many of us will be heading abroad on flights this summer - and ITV's Tonight team have been investigating whether enough is done to monitor toxin levels in cabins.

Major airlines have made an urgent and final plea for a quick decision on a new runway for the Meridian region. ITV News Meridian understands Sir Howard Davies, who is advising the Government, will make up his mind within days. But the Government could take up to six months deciding if it should go to Gatwick or Heathrow. In an exclusive interview Sir Richard Branson, head of Crawley-based Virgin Atlantic, said Heathrow, and not Gatwick, should be expanded. He called on the Government to make a final decision and "get on with it". The call came as the airline launched its new route to Detroit - with an airport that has 6 runways.

Video report: Using mobile phones to text while behind the wheel is illegal and highly dangerous. But new research shows many drivers - younger ones in particular - are ignoring the warnings.

A young girl from Dartford has been given a new hand - which cost only fifty pounds to manufacture. A group of technology enthusiasts managed to make a new limb for eight year old Isabella Rudd her - using, believe it or not, a 3D printer. Andrea Thomas explains.
Scientists from the University of Southampton have warned that a recent satellite explosion in space could pose a major risk to other spacecraft.
50,000 small pieces of debris are now travelling around earth at enormous speeds, according to new research. Scientists fear the fragments could cause extensive damage, just like the plot of Hollywood blockbuster film Gravity.
Even though many of these objects will be no bigger than the ball in a ballpoint pen, they can disable a spacecraft in a collision because of their enormous speed
The US DMSP-F13 satellite exploded in February. The Southampton team have developed a new technique called CiELO (debris Cloud Evolution in Low Orbits) to assess the collision risk to space missions from small-sized debris. They produced a collision probability map showing a peak in the risk at altitudes just below the location of the DMSP-F13 explosion.
Voters could be able to use a pocket-sized device to cast their vote online in future general elections, researchers claim.Read the full story ›
