|Opportunity's tracks in the Martian desert.|
Virgin Galactic's suborbital spaceplane the VSS 'Unity' has reached it's highest altitude yet, 90km - just shy of the official edge of the space at 100km, but it's fair to say that the difference between 90km and 110km is so negligible in every measurable way that to deny it the description 'spacecraft' would be sheer pedantry. All the crew were awarded astronaut wings at the end of the flight, and it marked the first time someone has floated about inside the passenger cabin of a commercial spaceship during flight.
Moving deeper into space again, the Japanese space agency JAXA has landed it's Hayabusa-2 space craft on the asteroid Bennu. The craft fired a series of projectiles into the surface, and collected samples of the asteroid material blasted off, which it will return to Earth for study. The mission has also deployed very small landers on the asteroid's surface - you can read more about the mission here.
