ANTronauts Agree to Pilot Worlds Tiniest Space Shuttle
The University of Tokyo has designed a tiny space shuttle made of high-temperature-resistant paper that can withstand a Mach 7 velocity.
The paper shuttle will be "released from the International Space Station, 400 kilometers from the earth, at mach 20, but immediately after entering the earth's atmosphere at an altitude of about 80 kilometers, it would slow to about mach 7," says a Mainichi News article.
Other future plans for the Space Station (currently under construction) include throwing a boomerang within the Station cabin to test the dynamics of boomerang responses in space.
Thanks for the articles Kami. Sorry I was so lazy about posting them.
