This week we are featuring four new stories. First we have news about the Russian solar sail experiment, that desite great potential, failed to perform. Then we have a story about a real spy in the sky that's going to the space station. Next, we have an article about Stonehenge and the summer equinox! Finally, we take a look at the mystery of the Kennewick man.

A few high wisps of cloud together with a low-lying mist added to the splendour of dawn on the longest day of the year and the all-night festivities at the ancient stone circle passed relatively peacefully.
