SpaceX's Block 5 lands safely, delivers Bangabandhu 1 into orbit
After a day's delay , Bangladesh's first satellite was today successfully launched atop the first SpaceX Falcon 9 Block 5 rocket. But even without the Block 5, SpaceX is already slated to have an extremely productive year, with 30 launches on deck for 2018.

The singer-songwriter SuRie was the surprise victor of the Eurovision: You Decide contest, beating heavy favourite Asanda to become the UK's 2018 entry.

The 63rd Eurovision Song Contest is about to take place, for the first time in its history, in Portugal, a country that had a reputation - until a year ago - as the competition's biggest loser.
