Origami Space Mission Looks Good On Paper
Japanese scientists plan to launch a paper plane from - of all places - the International Space Station. The 20-centimetre craft, made from heat-resistant paper, will hit speeds of up to Mach 20 (24,500 kilometres an hour) as it flutters 384 kilometres to earth. The brainchild of the Japan Origami Plane Association and University of Tokyo engineers, a message will be written onto the plane in several languages, asking the finder to return it the origami group.
