Morning, guys.

0:00:030:00:04

Martin here with your

Monday Newsorund.

0:00:040:00:06

Coming up:

0:00:060:00:08

We all love space, but have you ever

wondered how big it is?

0:00:080:00:12

We've been finding out.

0:00:120:00:13

And we meet the 13-year old ice

skaing world champion.

0:00:130:00:21

OK, let's start with

a quick round-up of some

0:00:280:00:31

of the day's sports stories.

0:00:310:00:31

First, to the Winter Paralympics,

and on the ice, Great Britain's

0:00:310:00:34

curling team are leading Sweden

in their latest round robin match.

0:00:340:00:36

But it's been bad news for

the british para-snowboarding team -

0:00:360:00:39

they have been knocked out

in the qualifying round.

0:00:390:00:45

Now, sticking with winter sports,

try not to get too dizzy

0:00:450:00:47

when you watch this.

0:00:470:00:48

This is 13-year-old

Alexandra Trusova who came first

0:00:480:00:50

in the junior figure skating World

Championships.

0:00:500:00:53

She already has loads

of world records and is now

0:00:530:00:55

the youngest ever World Champ.

0:00:550:01:03

Scotland have beaten

Ireland for the first time

0:01:030:01:05

in Women's Six Nations history.

0:01:050:01:06

Chloe Rollie ran practically

the entire length of the pitch

0:01:060:01:08

to score the second of the Scots'

two tries, as they won 15-12.

0:01:080:01:15

And staying with Scotland,

there was a cracking Old Firm derby

0:01:150:01:17

in the Scottish Premiership -

Josh Windass put Rangers ahead

0:01:170:01:20

at Ibrox after just three minutes.

0:01:200:01:21

It was 2-2 at half-time before

Celtic snatched victory,

0:01:210:01:23

thanks to Odsonne Edouard.

0:01:230:01:29

Here on Newsround we love hearing

about you, so we ve travelled

0:01:290:01:32

all over the country to hear some

of your amazing stories.

0:01:320:01:35

This week we re hearing from Kane,

who found his forever family

0:01:350:01:38

when he was adopted.

0:01:380:01:45

My birth parents, I mean,

they did love me, but they just

0:01:450:01:48

couldn't look after me,

so it's really nice to know

0:01:480:01:50

that I now have parents

who can look after me.

0:01:500:01:55

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

found my forever family.

0:01:550:01:58

I've always known I've been

adopted and I think that's

0:01:580:02:00

really good because,

you know, it's not any secret

0:02:000:02:04

that is being kept from me.

0:02:040:02:05

It's good to know what's happened

previously, stuff that

0:02:050:02:08

I might not have remembered.

0:02:080:02:10

In primary school when I told my

friends, a couple of them had been

0:02:100:02:13

teasing me about not having parents.

0:02:130:02:15

It felt a bit, you know,

not very happy because I guess

0:02:150:02:19

I was kind of jealous that other

people had their parents who they'd

0:02:190:02:22

lived with all their lives.

0:02:220:02:23

But on the other hand,

I was still happy because I did

0:02:230:02:29

have a mum and dad.

0:02:290:02:33

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.

0:02:360:02:40

I don't think being adopted

has changed anything.

0:02:400:02:43

We still have fun and fights.

0:02:430:02:48

What might've happened?

0:02:480:02:51

Um...

0:02:510:02:52

I wouldn't be having

the life I have now,

0:02:520:02:55

which is really good.

0:02:550:02:56

It's just kind of shown how

important people are in our lives.

0:02:560:03:04

Next, we all know that

space is pretty huge,

0:03:050:03:07

but just how big actually is it?

0:03:070:03:09

That's what Oscar at Hutton Rudby

Primary School wanted to know.

0:03:090:03:12

Here's space expert

Sarah Bosman with the answer.

0:03:120:03:16

Hi, I'm Sarah Bosman and I am

an astrophysicist at UCL.

0:03:160:03:19

I study mostly the early universe.

0:03:190:03:23

Space is really enormous.

0:03:230:03:31

Hi, I'm Sarah Bosman and I am

an astrophysicist at UCL.

0:03:330:03:36

I study mostly the early universe.

0:03:360:03:37

Space is really enormous.

0:03:370:03:42

It's so big that it's

kind of hard to imagine.

0:03:420:03:44

The units we use on Earth,

like kilometres or miles,

0:03:440:03:47

don't even make sense to apply

to space because you'll

0:03:470:03:49

just get too many zeros

if you try to think of it that way.

0:03:490:03:53

So astronomers have to come up

with a whole new unit

0:03:530:03:55

to measure distances in space,

which is a light year.

0:03:550:03:58

So for instance, a galaxy

is 100,000 light years

0:03:580:04:00

from one edge to the other.

0:04:000:04:01

That means if you are travelling

at the speed of light,

0:04:010:04:04

which is the fastest you can ever

go, it will still take you 100,000

0:04:040:04:07

years from one edge to the other.

0:04:070:04:09

And that's only how big one galaxy

is, so if we look outside

0:04:090:04:12

of our galaxy to how many other

galaxies there are, we just study

0:04:120:04:15

small patches of the sky and count

how many there in each small patch.

0:04:150:04:19

And the amount of galaxies we think

are in the universe,

0:04:190:04:21

it's about two trillion galaxies,

which is a ridiculous number.

0:04:210:04:24

So if you took all those

galaxies and split them

0:04:240:04:26

among everyone on Earth,

each person would have about 250

0:04:260:04:28

galaxies all to themselves.

0:04:280:04:29

And that's only the

space we know about.

0:04:290:04:31

Beyond that, there could

be even more space.

0:04:310:04:39

Finally, robots that

think for themselves.

0:04:440:04:46

Sounds futuristic, but they're

are already here and scientists

0:04:460:04:48

are using the technology to teach

the bots to play football?!

0:04:480:04:51

Watch this.

0:04:510:04:56

Meet the football playing robots.

0:04:560:04:57

They're not being operated

by remote control.

0:04:570:05:01

These techie sports stars are making

decisions for themselves.

0:05:010:05:03

Scientists at the University

of Texas have programmed the robots

0:05:030:05:05

to do use artificial intelligence

to have a good old kickabout.

0:05:050:05:08

These guys are in training

for a big contest -

0:05:080:05:10

the Robot World Cup.

0:05:100:05:16

Like this one held in

Germany two years ago.

0:05:160:05:24

What a save!

0:05:250:05:27

They're able to learn

from their mistakes and improve

0:05:270:05:29

their game each time they play.

0:05:290:05:33

Rather than turn taking,

everybody's moving at the same time.

0:05:330:05:35

If you take too long to think

about what to do when you're

0:05:350:05:38

about to pass the ball the opponents

can come and take

0:05:380:05:41

the ball away from you.

0:05:410:05:42

I think these guys have got what it

takes to make it to the finals,

0:05:420:05:46

once they learn to stay

on the feet, that is.

0:05:460:05:48

That's it from me for now,

Ricky is back at 4.20pm.

0:05:480:05:51

Have a great day at school.

0:05:510:05:52

Don't forget to head online

for the rest of the day's stories

0:05:520:05:55

and test yourself with our amazing

quiz of the week.

0:05:550:05:57

Bye!
