Hi, guys.

0:00:030:00:04

Ricky here with your big stories this Friday.

0:00:040:00:06

Here's what's' coming up.

0:00:060:00:14

What it's like to be a Red Arrow.

0:00:140:00:16

And Jo Konta waves goodbye to Wimbeldon

0:00:160:00:26

First up, Wimbledon, and Britiain's number oneJohanna

0:00:260:00:28

Konta is out of the competition.

0:00:280:00:29

Ayshah's in London now to tell us what happened.

0:00:290:00:37

Hi, Ricky.

0:00:370:00:40

Yes that's right - she'd got further in the competition

0:00:400:00:43

than any other British female for almost forty years,

0:00:430:00:45

by reaching the semi finals.

0:00:450:00:48

She went into the match yesterday as the favourite

0:00:480:00:50

against Venus Williams but it wasn't enough to get her through.

0:00:500:00:53

Here's what happened.

0:00:530:00:54

A huge ovation for Jo Konta and her first Wimbledon semi-final.

0:00:540:00:57

Hopes were sky high for Johanna Konta, but this was the moment her

0:00:570:01:00

Wimbledon journey ended.

0:01:000:01:06

There it is.

0:01:060:01:07

She was playing against American Venus Williams,

0:01:070:01:10

who has won this competition five times in the past, so it was never

0:01:100:01:14

going to be an easy match.

0:01:140:01:21

What a serve.

0:01:210:01:22

Venus' powerful serve and years of experience of performing

0:01:220:01:24

at the top level proved too much for Konta.

0:01:240:01:27

She lost the first set and after that never managed

0:01:270:01:30

to get back in the game.

0:01:300:01:32

And there's the first blow to Venus Williams.

0:01:320:01:37

Well, the credit as to go to Venus and the way

0:01:370:01:39

she was able to play today.

0:01:390:01:41

I don't think I did too much wrong.

0:01:410:01:43

She really did just dictate the match from the very

0:01:430:01:45

beginning till the very end.

0:01:450:01:50

So I had few chances to get a good foothold in the match and again,

0:01:500:01:53

when I did have those chances, she did very well to take them away

0:01:530:01:57

from me, so all credit to her.

0:01:570:01:59

Although she didn't win, she has proved she is amongst

0:01:590:02:01

the world's rest and we're pretty sure this won't be the last

0:02:010:02:04

we see of Johanna Konta.

0:02:040:02:13

So disappointment, but there's plenty more

0:02:130:02:14

action here at Wimbledon - later today is the men's

0:02:140:02:17

semi-finals and I'll be right back here at 8.15am.

0:02:170:02:25

This is a vital time for butterflies according to nature expert

0:02:250:02:28

Sir David Attenborough.

0:02:280:02:30

Scientists say there are fewer and fewer of some

0:02:300:02:32

of the UK's most common types.

0:02:320:02:35

But the good news is 2017 looks like bieng a good year

0:02:350:02:38

But the good news is 2017 looks like being a good year

0:02:430:02:46

and Mr Attenborough wants people to help the group Butterfly

0:02:460:02:48

Conservation by taking part in a big butterfly count this summer.

0:02:480:02:51

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

0:02:510:02:53

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

0:02:530:02:56

Jenny's been investigating.

0:02:560:02:57

Ah, Dippy.

0:02:570:02:58

You might have spotted him on a school trip.

0:02:580:03:00

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

0:03:000:03:03

for nearly 40 years.

0:03:030:03:05

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

0:03:050:03:08

Meet Hope, the Balaenoptera musculus, better known

0:03:080:03:12

as a blue whale.

0:03:120:03:14

It's the largest animal on Earth.

0:03:140:03:16

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

0:03:160:03:18

And measuring in at a lengthy 30 metres, or two double-decker

0:03:180:03:21

buses, if you prefer.

0:03:210:03:26

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

0:03:260:03:29

organism on the planet.

0:03:290:03:31

And they can live to well over 100 years.

0:03:310:03:33

That's a whaley long time.

0:03:330:03:34

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

0:03:340:03:37

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

0:03:370:03:40

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

0:03:400:03:42

more about protecting animals, not just their history.

0:03:420:03:45

Look at the size of the space.

0:03:450:03:47

We wanted to have something large and impressive and hopefully

0:03:470:03:50

Hope is that for us.

0:03:500:03:51

She will inspire people and she is gorgeous.

0:03:510:04:01

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

0:04:020:04:05

They had to use special technology like 3-D printing

0:04:050:04:07

and work with teams of engineers and conservationists.

0:04:070:04:11

But, don't worry if you missed Dippy, he's set for his first-ever

0:04:110:04:20

UK tour to visit the fans early next year.

0:04:280:04:30

It's the Royal International Air Tattoo this weekend,

0:04:300:04:32

which marks the 70th anniversary of the United States Air Force.

0:04:320:04:34

And take a look at this - this is what it's like to fly

0:04:340:04:38

inside one of the famous Red Arrows planes.

0:04:380:04:40

They and their American counterparts, the Thunderbirds,

0:04:400:04:41

have been getting some practise in ahead of their big show.

0:04:410:04:44

Football now, and Wayne Rooney has already made a bit of an impact

0:04:440:04:47

at his hometown club.

0:04:470:04:48

He only re-signed for Everton on Sunday but has already

0:04:480:04:51

scored his first goal - this brilliant long range

0:04:510:04:53

effort on his debut during their pre-season

0:04:530:04:54

tour of Tanzania.

0:04:540:04:56

That's all from me, Newsround's back right here in about half an hour.
