1:39 am
and developing it based on driver feedback. there are challenges there and a lot of it is integrating our system with the car system as the car is not great at tolerating other things being integrated. but we do love a challenge, thatis but we do love a challenge, that is part of why we do it. team brit's ultimate aim is to make — team brit's ultimate aim is to make racing history and to take a team — make racing history and to take a team to — make racing history and to take a team to the world—famous endurance taste, becoming the first all— endurance taste, becoming the first all british disabled team to do— first all british disabled team to do so _ first all british disabled team to do so. —— endurance test. what — to do so. —— endurance test. what are _ to do so. —— endurance test. what are the team's goals for this year? _ what are the team's goals for this year?— this year? the aim is to win the endurance _ this year? the aim is to win | the endurance championship within our class. we are well up within our class. we are well up there in the championship and have achieved to a class win so far this season. we are hoping for another one this weekend at silverstone. pull there with — weekend at silverstone. pull there with a _ weekend at silverstone. pull there with a look _ weekend at silverstone. pull there with a look at - weekend at silverstone. pull there with a look at the tech and i'm joined by lucy, there with a look at the tech and i'mjoined by lucy, one there with a look at the tech and i'm joined by lucy, one of the professionals team brit. tell me, why today so important?— tell me, why today so imortant? ., , ., important? today is about caettin important? today is about getting ready _ important? today is about getting ready for - important? today is about getting ready for the - important? today is about | getting ready for the racing and that is what we have to do
1:40 am
so well. we're here to make up the numbers. we are competing against able bodies races on a level playing field so the take is to be right, car setup is without my drivers had to be comfortable. we have taken him silverware in all three races —— and we want to do it again this weekend. we -- and we want to do it again this weekend.— -- and we want to do it again this weekend. we can see what ureat this weekend. we can see what great access — this weekend. we can see what great access the _ this weekend. we can see what great access the company - this weekend. we can see whatj great access the company gives to people with driving experience what for anyone with a disability? how accessible is this, really?— this, really? the others of wa s this, really? the others of ways we — this, really? the others of ways we can _ this, really? the others of ways we can get _ this, really? the others of ways we can get involved i this, really? the others of. ways we can get involved and this, really? the others of- ways we can get involved and we can help them. their attractive experiences we can offer them with a practice on a simulator photo we give them help and support to get you to our hand control technology and then they get out on the track. so it is stage and we are with them all the way and of course there is the money as well because motorsport is not cheap so for a full season's racing you are looking at £15,000 as a starter which will put a lot of people off but we have the method and there are ways and so definitely the door has been openin so definitely the door has been open in a weight has not been before so we would love people to get in touch and find out

1:51 am
cost a fraction of traditional satellite so we can launch many more satellites into space, collecting a lot more data. that allows us to track global warming and interplanetary life more accurately. these networks could also bring faster internet coverage across the world. some cubes now use a superfast communications to interact with each other. these liquid filled lenses can bend light 90 degrees so the information sent can travel more directly between cubes. of course they need power to operate which is why we built another solution. this project is called flat foot of the folded, lightweight actuated position system. it bends when heated so we can angle our satellites and panels to collect maximum energy from the sun. thisjoint can
1:52 am
collect maximum energy from the sun. this joint can also direct calls like antennas or cameras. materials often behave differently in space so we tested this in zero gravity. we recreate the way this atmosphere of space by dropping altitude in a matter of seconds. this is a replica of a starlight cube site that is already in space. these meadows distract unwanted light away, giving scientists a better look at far—away planets. today, it is a rooftop antenna so we can see when it is closest to boston to collect data from it. so we could find life outside our planet for the first time in the next few decades. our goal now is to have a new satellite launched every couple of years. thank you so much for joining us in our lab today.

1:57 am
cloud to start the day, too, across england, south wales, northern ireland. and a little bit across the south—east of england as well. there were ten to clear quite quickly but some of this cloud for the north and west will be more stubborn sustain quite grey, damp and windy the north—west scotland. 70 degrees for stornoway but in the sunshine in aberdeen, 25. the cloud in northern ireland is retreating to the coast. 26 in line for the afternoon. a bit murky for some of these irish sea coast of north—west england and north wales as well but coming on land, temperatures are few places up to 2930 degrees. always a little cooler around the coast with seabees is developing. but at silverstone for the british grand prix it looks hot through saturday and more especially for the race day on sunday with lots of sunshine. strong sunshine at that. very high uv levels for many especially towards the south and the west. so make sure you protect yourself if you're out and about for any length of time.
1:58 am
as we had to saturday night we will see long, clear spells especially down to what england and wales. northern ireland and scotland see more cloud. some of that footing across the irish sea across north wales and north—west england but pretty mild and quite warm night in places. 14, 15, 16 degrees. a sunday, the further south you are expect lots of sunshine once again. the north, though, generally more cloud in the mix by this stage and some patchy rain across the north of scotland. temperatures a little bit across the northern half of the uk but further south very warm or hot day. one in two places in the london area could get up to 30 or 31 degrees. into start of next week our area of high pressure will be with us but it would tend to slide a little further westwards and that will allow something of a northerly wind. were not the edge of the temperatures, little bit less hot. the odd shower in the south on monday and some rain later in the week.
