Images from space

A science project organised by a school in Kent has reached new heights. Sevenoaks School holds a "science week" each year and this time they sent cameras up to the edge of space on a weather ballon - and despite a hiccup over Belgium, have brought back some amazing images.

David Johns explains, talking to physics teacher Elizabeth Harper-Clark, and Head of Science Graeme Lawrie.

A Dutch astronaut had to be rescued after his sailing boat got into difficulty off the Sussex coast. Physicist Wubbo Johannes Ockels - who flew into space in 1985 - was in his schooner when its engines failed seven miles from Newhaven last night. He was then towed to safety by Newhaven RNLI.
