Morning, guys.

0:00:110:00:14

Ayshah here with all the stories this Sunday morning.

0:00:140:00:18

First to Wimbledon - where it should come as no surprise

0:00:180:00:21

to hear that Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer are both safely

0:00:210:00:23

through to the fourth round of the competition.

0:00:230:00:27

Djokovic beat Latvia's Ernests Gulbis in straight sets.

0:00:270:00:31

While Federer made winning look easy, as he dispatched German

0:00:310:00:33

player Mischa Zverev - again in straight sets.

0:00:330:00:38

Britain's Lewis Hamiliton will have his work cut out

0:00:380:00:40

at the Austrian Grand Prix later.

0:00:400:00:43

He'll start back in eighth place, after a picking up a penalty.

0:00:430:00:47

His team mate Valteri Bottas will be on pole,

0:00:470:00:50

with World Championship leader Sebastian Vettel second.

0:00:500:00:57

If you think rubbish can be a problem here on earth,

0:00:570:01:00

imagine the trouble it can cause out in space!

0:01:000:01:02

Step in Super Gekko...

0:01:020:01:03

It'll all make sense when you watch this.

0:01:030:01:05

Here's Whitney.

0:01:050:01:06

There's a big problem up in space.

0:01:060:01:08

Right now, about 500,000 pieces of human-made debris are whizzing

0:01:080:01:13

around space and orbiting our planet at speeds of up to 17,000 mph.

0:01:130:01:20

This debris poses a threat to our satellites and space stations.

0:01:200:01:23

And it's getting scientists thinking.

0:01:230:01:25

The solution?

0:01:250:01:32

Super robots Space Geckos.

0:01:320:01:34

What?

0:01:340:01:36

Top scientists have developed a tool to grab objects in space.

0:01:360:01:40

It's inspired by gecko feet and how they grab

0:01:400:01:42

onto surfaces when climbing.

0:01:420:01:45

Geckos' toes can hold onto almost any surface.

0:01:450:01:53

Their feet are covered in tiny rubbery hairs that grip the surface

0:01:530:01:56

tightly but are also super easy to remove when force is applied

0:01:560:01:59

in the other direction.

0:01:590:02:00

This allows a gecko to climb almost anywhere.

0:02:000:02:08

The scientists copied these tiny hairs for their gripper.

0:02:080:02:15

It has edges just one tenth of millimetre wide.

0:02:150:02:17

The robotic rubber can grip, hold onto and move around even

0:02:170:02:20

larger smooth surfaces in zero gravity and the vacuum of space.

0:02:200:02:23

A possible solution to a big problem up there from

0:02:230:02:26

a tiny little creature down here.

0:02:260:02:31

Finally, if you've ever dreamt of scoring one

0:02:310:02:34

of those amazing one-off, never to be repeated

0:02:340:02:36

goals, then watch this.

0:02:360:02:37

This stunner was scored by Noah in an under nine

0:02:370:02:42

tournament in Bristol.

0:02:420:02:46

I dont know if he meant to do it, but, whatever, the mums and dads

0:02:460:02:49

watching certainly appreciated it.

0:02:490:02:50

He'll be dreaming about that goal for weeks!

0:02:500:02:52

Join us back here just before half past 12,

0:02:520:02:56

and we'll have Martin partying it up at the CBBC Social just outside

0:02:560:02:59

the studio - don't miss it.

0:02:590:03:02

Hi. My favourite CBBC show is Operation Ouch,
