Hi, guys, Ricky here with your Thursday Newsround.

:00:00.:00:08.

And meet the BIGGEST star of the Natural History Museum.

:00:09.:00:27.

The first British woman to play in a Wimbeldon Semi Final for almost

:00:28.:00:33.

40 years was beaten by former champ Venus Williams.

:00:34.:00:36.

It was a really good match between them. That hill over there was

:00:37.:00:53.

absolutely packed and her fans are absolutely devastated, as you can

:00:54.:00:57.

imagine. Venus Williams absolutely stormed through that want to win.

:00:58.:01:03.

One more thing to update you on. Ordinary, the number one, top player

:01:04.:01:11.

in wheelchair tennis also lost in straight sets. We don't really have

:01:12.:01:15.

good British tennis news at the moment. But a quick break away from

:01:16.:01:21.

tennis and there is a band which plays around Centre court just

:01:22.:01:25.

before people go on and I managed to speak to some of them.

:01:26.:01:30.

It's a really good experience because not many people do it.

:01:31.:01:32.

We are really privileged to have that opportunity every year

:01:33.:01:35.

I was quite nervous but it is quite fun.

:01:36.:01:41.

OK, so I've heard that there a song that you can only play at Wimbledon.

:01:42.:01:44.

It's a great thing because it sort of represents Wimbledon

:01:45.:01:52.

and it's just like a special thing and you always are proud

:01:53.:01:54.

What's your favourite song you love to play?

:01:55.:02:04.

My favourite piece to play is the Stevie Wonder medley.

:02:05.:02:06.

Because there's lots of great tunes that we play in that.

:02:07.:02:09.

They had loads of people cheering for them, me included.

:02:10.:02:30.

Well, that's it from Wimbledon today, we'll be back tomorrow

:02:31.:02:40.

It will include the men's semifinal. That would be fantastic.

:02:41.:02:48.

The first pictures have come back from Nasa's Juno probe

:02:49.:02:55.

which has been sent to take photographs of Jupiter's Red Spot.

:02:56.:02:58.

These pictures are the closest a camera

:02:59.:03:00.

The spot is actually a storm which has been raging for hundreds

:03:01.:03:03.

of years and is even bigger than the Earth!

:03:04.:03:06.

But it is shrinking and Nasa wants to know why.

:03:07.:03:08.

Next up, she's big, blue and a bit boney.

:03:09.:03:10.

The Natural History Museum in London has a new star resident.

:03:11.:03:13.

You might have spotted him on a school trip.

:03:14.:03:21.

The diplodicus has been the rock star of the Natural History Museum

:03:22.:03:24.

But, now, it's out with old and in with the blue.

:03:25.:03:34.

Meet Hope, Balaenoptera musculus, better known as a blue whale.

:03:35.:03:38.

Weighing up to 200 tonnes, that's almost 30 African elephants.

:03:39.:03:45.

And measuring in at a lengthy 30 metres,

:03:46.:03:48.

or two double-decker buses, if you prefer.

:03:49.:03:52.

The lower jawbone is the largest single bone to be grown by any

:03:53.:03:55.

And they can live to well over 100 years.

:03:56.:04:06.

Blue whales were hunted almost to extinction in the 1900s.

:04:07.:04:16.

But were also one of the first species humans decided to save.

:04:17.:04:19.

So, by introducing Hope, the museum once visitors to think

:04:20.:04:22.

more about protecting animals, not just their history.

:04:23.:04:24.

We wanted to have something large and impressive and hopefully

:04:25.:04:28.

She will inspire people and she is gorgeous.

:04:29.:04:31.

It's taken the team months to put together Hope's 221 bones.

:04:32.:04:34.

They had to use special technology like 3-D printing

:04:35.:04:36.

and work with teams of engineers and conservationists.

:04:37.:04:43.

But, don't worry if you missed Dippy, he's set

:04:44.:04:48.

for his first-ever UK tour to visit the fans

:04:49.:04:51.

That's all from me, Newsround's back right here at 0740.
