Germans hail Vulture 1 spaceplane

Die Zeit gets cosy with PARIS

Top three mobile application threats

Our German readers might like to nip out today and grab a copy of this week's Die Zeit, which has a handy guide on how to make the ultimate paper plane.

Paper aircraft instructions in this week's Die ZeitWe're obliged to Thorsten Winterer for whipping out his camera this morning to record part of Die Zeit's comprehensive coverage (see right, click on snap for a big version).

Thorsten notes that the article has a "Hall of Fame", headed up by our very own Vulture 1, the Guinness World Record-holding flagship of our Paper Aircraft Released Into Space (PARIS) mission.

The blurb reads: "In 2010, British scientists let a paper plane ascend to 26,000 metres using a helium balloon. From there, it descended calmly down to Earth."

We're not sure that Die Zeit has completely captured the intricacies of our Vulture 1 release mechanism, but it has done a nice job on rendering the spaceplane itself, albeit with our heroic Playmonaut labelled as a "Kamera":
