Hello, I'm Ricky and this

is Newsround on Thursday morning.

0:00:100:00:13

Coming up in the next few minutes...

0:00:130:00:14

The astronaut who got

taller in space.

0:00:140:00:16

How dog poo could be

the future for energy.

0:00:160:00:18

And find out which TV show topped

the most-watched list.

0:00:180:00:26

A Japanese astronaut has said sorry

after wrongly claiming he'd grown

0:00:330:00:37

an extra 9 centimetres in space!

0:00:370:00:41

But his body has been changing.

0:00:410:00:42

Here's Ayshah.

0:00:420:00:46

Astronaut Norishige Kanai hit

the headlines this week after saying

0:00:460:00:49

he'd stretched a staggering nine

centimetres in space -

0:00:490:00:52

that's the size of an

average chocolate bar!

0:00:520:00:56

But he's now admitted to making

a measurement mistake.

0:00:560:01:04

Whoops!

0:01:060:01:07

Norishige has grown

during his first month

0:01:070:01:08

on the International Space Station,

but only by two centimetres.

0:01:080:01:11

It's quite normal for astronauts

because there is zero gravity,

0:01:110:01:14

which is the force here on earth

that pulls us downwards.

0:01:140:01:17

Without gravity, the bones

in someone's spine can

0:01:170:01:23

expand and move apart slightly,

leading to a small change in height.

0:01:230:01:26

It doesn't hurt, though.

0:01:260:01:28

But don't start thinking

you can all go up in space

0:01:280:01:31

if you want to get taller,

because it doesn't last forever.

0:01:310:01:33

Eventually your spine goes back

to normal when you come

0:01:330:01:36

back down to earth.

0:01:360:01:41

Now, we're not afraid of talking

about poo here at Newsround -

0:01:410:01:44

but this is a stinky story,

even for us...

0:01:440:01:51

Ah, a beautiful evening

in a quaint English village.

0:01:510:01:54

Well, things aren't quite

as lovely as they seem,

0:01:540:01:56

because this lamp could soon be

powered by poo.

0:01:560:02:02

Brian is an inventor,

and he's made a special machine

0:02:020:02:05

to turn dog poo into energy

to power street lamps.

0:02:050:02:10

This is deadly serious,

so we've spent 2.5 years working

0:02:100:02:12

on this in secret to get

the engineering and the

0:02:120:02:15

science correct with it,

which is what we've done.

0:02:150:02:18

So how does it work?

0:02:180:02:20

Lift up this dispenser

and grab a free bag,

0:02:200:02:25

however many you want.

0:02:250:02:29

We then scoop that into the bag

and all you do is lift up that top

0:02:290:02:35

cover, the whole bag,

nothing is emptied, goes in there.

0:02:350:02:40

Turning the handle pushes

the bag into the machine,

0:02:400:02:43

where the poo is broken down

by microbes, and this produces

0:02:430:02:47

methane and carbon dioxide,

which fuels the light.

0:02:470:02:52

The lamp is a big hit in Brian's

village, and he's hoping that this

0:02:520:02:56

machine can bring poo power to other

parts of the country.

0:02:560:03:00

Looks like it wasn't such

a pants idea after all!

0:03:000:03:06

Next, 2017 saw so many brilliant TV

shows hit our screens,

0:03:060:03:11

but which ones did British viewers

love the most?

0:03:110:03:18

Well, the results are in.

0:03:180:03:21

And the winner is...

0:03:210:03:23

Hidden beneath the waves,

right beneath my feet,

0:03:230:03:27

there are creatures

beyond our imagination.

0:03:270:03:32

Yes, Blue Planet 2

was the most-watched

0:03:320:03:34

TV show of the year.

0:03:340:03:37

A chart-topping 14 million

people saw episode one

0:03:370:03:42

of the wildlife series,

which included dramatic footage

0:03:420:03:44

of walruses fighting to find a home,

and dazzling scenes

0:03:440:03:46

of surfing dolphins.

0:03:460:03:51

Second place went to

Strictly Come Dancing.

0:03:510:03:55

13 million people watched the final,

which was won by actor Joe McFadden

0:03:550:03:58

and his dance partner Katya.

0:03:580:03:59

Close behind in third place

was ITV's I'm a Celebrity,

0:03:590:04:02

Get Me Out of Here!,

which attracted an audience of 12.7

0:04:020:04:07

million for its launch episode.

0:04:070:04:12

Britain's Got Talent

and the New Year's fireworks made

0:04:120:04:14

it into the top ten,

but 2016's top TV show

0:04:140:04:17

The Great British Bake Off

missed out completely.

0:04:170:04:19

The delicious baking contest did

still bring in millions of viewers

0:04:190:04:22

after moving to Channel 4

and changing its judges

0:04:220:04:25

and presenters.

0:04:250:04:31

Let's hope 2018 is packed full

of even more incredible TV moments!

0:04:310:04:39

Newsround missed out on the top ten

once again! Maybe this year...

0:04:420:04:48

Sticking with TV now and meet one

of the stars of a brand

0:04:480:04:51

new BBC nature documentary

which starts tonight.

0:04:510:04:53

I've been taking a look.

0:04:530:04:54

Meet the world's smallest cat.

0:04:540:05:02

No, this isn't a kitten -

it's a rusty spotted cat

0:05:050:05:09

and lives in Sri Lanka.

0:05:090:05:12

They weigh little more

than a bag of sugar,

0:05:120:05:14

around 200 times lighter

than a lion.

0:05:140:05:19

Almost fully grown, this cat can sit

in the palm of your hand.

0:05:190:05:24

And while he might look

cute, this furry fella

0:05:240:05:26

is a pretty fierce hunter.

0:05:260:05:31

They look similar to their furry

cousins, the domestic house cat,

0:05:310:05:35

but the rusty spotted cousin has

hardly ever been filmed

0:05:350:05:38

like this before.

0:05:380:05:43

It's one of the stars in the BBC's

new wildlife documentary Big Cats.

0:05:430:05:46

Hang on a minute, shouldn't

they have called it Small Cats?

0:05:460:05:53

That's your lot for today.

0:05:530:05:54

Have a great day at school.

0:05:540:05:56

See you later.
