TA-600 aircraft, World's largest amphibious aircraft 

Trial production of the TA-600 aircraft, intended to be the world's largest amphibious aircraft, has started in China following completion of the design process, a company executive said Sunday.The aircraft, with a maximum takeoff weight of 53.5 tons and a maximum range of more than 5,000 kilometers, is larger than a Boeing 737 and could be used for firefighting and air-sea rescue, said Fu Junxu, general manager of China Aviation Industry General Aircraft's Zhuhai branch.China began developing the aircraft five years ago. Its maiden flight is expected to happen in late 2015, said Fu."After a period of trial flights, the aircraft will be put onto the market," he said.
Upon completion, it will replace Japan's ShinMaywa US-2 aircraft as the largest amphibious aircraft in the world.

US Air Force Launches Satellites To Spy On Other Countries’ Spacecraft

 An unmanned Delta 4 rocket blasted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on Monday with a pair of U.S. military satellites designed to keep watch on other countries’ spacecraft.

Airbus Defence and Space ATV-5 “Georges Lemaître” set for launch on 30 July 2014

Airbus Defence and Space will launch the ATV (Automated Transfer Vehicle) -5 “Georges Lemaître”. In the early hours of 30 July 2014, the ATV will take off on the European launcher Ariane 5 ES from the European spaceport in Kourou (French Guiana).It will set course for the International Space Station (ISS) to begin its mission, which will last about six months.
The ATV-5 is the last European space freighter to set off for the ISS. With a total weight of almost 20.3 tonnes, “Georges Lemaître” has surpassed its four predecessors by being the heaviest payload ever launched into orbit by an Ariane. “Georges Lemaître” is expected to reach the ISS mid August, where it will be received by an ESA astronaut.
Thanks to the success of the ATV missions, space European partners are in a position to provide system-critical elements for an American human mission. Airbus Defence and Space is developing, for example, the service module for the American human spacecraft “Orion-MPCV” for the European Space Agency (ESA)
