See you!

0:00:000:00:05

Morning, guys.

0:00:050:00:06

Martin here with your

Monday Newsorund.

0:00:060:00:08

Coming up:

0:00:080:00:08

We all love space, but have you ever

wondered how big it is?

0:00:080:00:12

We've been finding out.

0:00:120:00:18

And we meet the 13-year old ice

skaing world champion.

0:00:180:00:26

OK, let's start with

a quick round-up of some

0:00:290:00:31

of the day's sports stories.

0:00:310:00:32

First, to the Winter Paralympics,

and on the ice, Great Britain's

0:00:320:00:35

curling team are leading Sweden

in their latest round robin match.

0:00:350:00:39

But it's been bad news for

the british para-snowboarding team -

0:00:390:00:42

they have been knocked out

in the qulifying round.

0:00:420:00:46

Now, sticking with winter sports,

try not to get too dizzy

0:00:460:00:49

when you watch this.

0:00:490:00:50

This is 13-year-old

Alexandra Trusova who came first

0:00:500:00:52

in the junior figure skating World

Championships.

0:00:520:00:54

She already has loads

of world records and is now

0:00:540:00:56

the youngest ever World Champ.

0:00:560:01:04

Scotland have beaten

Ireland for the first time

0:01:050:01:07

in Women's Six Nations history.

0:01:070:01:10

Chloe Rollee ran practically

the entire length of the pitch

0:01:100:01:13

to score the second of the Scots'

two tries, as they won 15-12.

0:01:130:01:16

And starying with Scotland,

there was a cracking Old Firm derby

0:01:160:01:19

And staying with Scotland,

there was a cracking Old Firm derby

0:01:200:01:22

in the Scottish Premiership -

Josh Windass put Rangers ahead

0:01:220:01:25

at Ibrox after just three minutes.

0:01:250:01:26

It was 2-2 at half-time before

Celtic snatched victory,

0:01:260:01:28

thanks to Odsonne Edouard.

0:01:280:01:31

Here on Newsround we love hearing

about you, so we ve traveled

0:01:310:01:34

all over the country to hear some

of your amazing stories.

0:01:340:01:36

This week we re hearing from Kane,

who found his forever family

0:01:360:01:39

when he was adopted.

0:01:390:01:44

My birth parents, I mean,

they did love me, but they just

0:01:440:01:49

couldn't look after me,

so it's really nice to know

0:01:490:01:51

that I now have parents

who can look after me.

0:01:510:01:59

Hi, I'm Kane, I'm 15 and I've

found my forever family.

0:02:010:02:04

I've always known I've been

adopted and I think that's

0:02:040:02:06

really good because,

you know, it's not any secret

0:02:060:02:08

that is being kept from me.

0:02:080:02:10

It's good to know what's happened

previously, stuff that

0:02:100:02:12

I might not have remembered.

0:02:120:02:13

In primary school when I told my

friends, a couple of them had been

0:02:130:02:16

teasing me about not having parents.

0:02:160:02:18

It felt a bit, you know,

not very happy because I guess

0:02:180:02:22

I was kind of jealous that other

people had their parents who they'd

0:02:220:02:25

lived with all their lives.

0:02:250:02:28

But on the other hand,

I was so happy because I did

0:02:280:02:31

have a mum and dad.

0:02:310:02:33

My brother that I have in my forever

family was also adopted

0:02:330:02:36

from a different family into the one

we both share now.

0:02:360:02:39

I don't think being adopted

has changed anything.

0:02:390:02:41

We still have fun and fights.

0:02:410:02:47

What might've happened?

0:02:470:02:50

Um...

0:02:500:02:53

I wouldn't be having

the life I have now,

0:02:530:02:55

which is really good.

0:02:550:03:00

It's just kind of shown how

important people are in our lives.

0:03:000:03:08

Next, we all know that

space is pretty huge,

0:03:090:03:11

but just how big actually is it?

0:03:110:03:12

That's what Oscar at Hutton Rudby

Primary School wanted to know.

0:03:120:03:15

Here's space expert

Sarah Bosman with the answer.

0:03:150:03:25

Hello, I'm Sarah Bosman and I am

an astrophysicist at UCL.

0:03:350:03:38

I study mostly the early universe.

0:03:380:03:39

Space is really enormous.

0:03:390:03:40

It's so big that it's

kind of hard to imagine.

0:03:400:03:42

The units we use on Earth,

like kilometres or miles,

0:03:420:03:50

don't even make sense to apply

to space because you'll

0:03:500:03:52

just get too many zeros

if you try to think of it that way.

0:03:520:03:55

So astronomers have to come up

with a whole new unit

0:03:550:03:58

to measure distances in space,

which is a light year.

0:03:580:04:00

So for instance, a galaxy

is 100,000 light years

0:04:000:04:03

from one edge to the other.

0:04:030:04:04

That means if you are travelling

at the speed of light,

0:04:040:04:07

which is the fastest you can ever

go, it will still take you 100,000

0:04:070:04:10

years from one edge to the other.

0:04:100:04:12

And that's only how big one galaxy

is, so if we look outside

0:04:120:04:15

of our galaxy to how many other

galaxies there are, we just study

0:04:150:04:18

small patches of the sky and count

how many there in each small patch.

0:04:180:04:22

And the amount of galaxies we think

are in the universe,

0:04:220:04:26

it's about two trillion galaxies,

which is a ridiculous number.

0:04:260:04:31

So if you took all those

galaxies and split them

0:04:310:04:33

among everyone on Earth,

each person would have about 250

0:04:330:04:35

galaxies all to themselves.

0:04:350:04:37

And that's only the

space we know about.

0:04:370:04:38

Beyond that, there could

be even more space.

0:04:380:04:45

That's it from me for now.

0:04:450:04:47

I'll be back at about 8.20am.

0:04:470:04:52

Don't forget to head online

for the rest of the day's stories.
