Virgin Galactic unveils cabin of SpaceShipTwo rocket plane that will carry tourists to space

Virgin Galactic has unveiled the sci-fi cabin where passengers will one day gaze at Earth after paying $250,000 (£175,000) for a ticket to space. Revealed for the first time during an online event on Tuesday, the design features an "unrestricted astronaut float zone" for zero-gravity jaunts. Billionaire Sir Richard Branson, the owner of Virgin, said the cabin was designed "to allow thousands of people... to achieve the dream of spaceflight safely". The company unveiled the plans, which include individually sized reclining seats with "G-Force management" and automated mood lighting, during a virtual tour live-streamed to YouTube. Virgin Galactic also said the cabin included soft surfaces and window edges to allow passengers to float out of their seats unharmed. There are plans for a large circular mirror which would allow customers to view themselves floating in zero gravity.

Madeleine McCann cops search underground allotment tunnel in German city where suspect Christian B lived

***EXCLUSIVE*** Cops investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann searched an underground tunnel below an allotment. Trees were uprooted as diggers clawed holes 4ft deep in the ground at the site in ­Hanover, Germany. Forensics officers and a search team clutching shovels, rakes and plastic evidence bags then moved in to sift through the dirt for clues. Possible evidence was taken away as specially trained sniffer dogs concentrated on a tunnel at the site. The plot is four miles from his former home and just two miles from where the 43-year-old worked in a car workshop. Ground-penetrating radars scoured the decades-old tunnels, where prisoners were forced to labour in World War Two.

The red tinge of the paste is highly desirable in Himba culture and deemed beautiful. Other shots showed some women wearing the Himba headdress, the erembe, which is made of cow or goat leather and signifies that a girl has reached puberty or married status. The incredible pictures were taken in Kaokoland, northern Namibia, by photographer Trevor Cole from Londonderry, Northern Ireland.

UK’s largest and cutest colony of seals

***EXCLUSIVE*** NORFOLK, UK: This British photographer has spent three-days with the UK’s largest and cutest colony of seals. In one image, a 220-pound grey seal pup rolled onto its back with its flippers held out like an aeroplane as it unknowingly performed for the camera. In another, a sleepy seal lay on its side as the warmth of fading sun made for the perfect napping conditions. Photographer, Laura Galbraith (49), from Cambridge, UK, was travelling along the Norfolk coastline when she photographed these adorable seals. Home to both grey seals and harbour seals, Norfolk has the largest seal colony in the UK with 3,000 new pups born into the colony every year. Norfolk’s seal colony stretches for miles along the coastline around Blakeney Point and Horsey Gap. These cute creatures are attracted to the large expanse of flat sand and the shallow waters which make for the perfect conditions to birth new pups. Female seals only birth one pup a year due to the energy it requires to raise them. A newborn pup will gain over four pounds a day when it begins feeding from its mother. This stage of development lasts for around three weeks.
