Hi, guys, Ricky here with your Thursday Newsround.
And meet the BIGGEST star of the Natural History Museum.
The first British woman to play in a Wimbeldon Semi Final for almost
40 years was beaten by former champ Venus Williams.
It was a really good match between them. That hill over there was
absolutely packed and her fans are absolutely devastated, as you can
imagine. Venus Williams absolutely stormed through that want to win.
One more thing to update you on. Ordinary, the number one, top player
in wheelchair tennis also lost in straight sets. We don't really have
good British tennis news at the moment. But a quick break away from
tennis and there is a band which plays around Centre court just
before people go on and I managed to speak to some of them.
It's a really good experience because not many people do it.
We are really privileged to have that opportunity every year
I was quite nervous but it is quite fun.
OK, so I've heard that there a song that you can only play at Wimbledon.
It's a great thing because it sort of represents Wimbledon
and it's just like a special thing and you always are proud
What's your favourite song you love to play?
My favourite piece to play is the Stevie Wonder medley.
Because there's lots of great tunes that we play in that.
They had loads of people cheering for them, me included.
Well, that's it from Wimbledon today, we'll be back tomorrow
It will include the men's semifinal. That would be fantastic.
The first pictures have come back from Nasa's Juno probe
which has been sent to take photographs of Jupiter's Red Spot.
These pictures are the closest a camera
The spot is actually a storm which has been raging for hundreds
of years and is even bigger than the Earth!
But it is shrinking and Nasa wants to know why.
Next up, she's big, blue and a bit boney.
The Natural History Museum in London has a new star resident.
You might have spotted him on a school trip.
The diplodicus has been the rock star of the Natural History Museum
But, now, it's out with old and in with the blue.
Meet Hope, Balaenoptera musculus, better known as a blue whale.
Weighing up to 200 tonnes, that's almost 30 African elephants.
And measuring in at a lengthy 30 metres,
or two double-decker buses, if you prefer.
The lower jawbone is the largest single bone to be grown by any
And they can live to well over 100 years.
Blue whales were hunted almost to extinction in the 1900s.
But were also one of the first species humans decided to save.
So, by introducing Hope, the museum once visitors to think
more about protecting animals, not just their history.
We wanted to have something large and impressive and hopefully
She will inspire people and she is gorgeous.
It's taken the team months to put together Hope's 221 bones.
They had to use special technology like 3-D printing
and work with teams of engineers and conservationists.
But, don't worry if you missed Dippy, he's set
for his first-ever UK tour to visit the fans
That's all from me, Newsround's back right here at 0740.
