    hello to all,
    somewhere in the unlimited depths of the net i found a serious site about a project of a japanese university for building a paper airplane (such like schoolkids build) for going down from the ISS to earth. Unfortunately i've lost the url so that i can't link it.
    But i remember some details:
    The plane would be done with ceramic sealed paper to avoid the heat while reentry. On it would be written some peace messages in different languages, if anyone finds it after landing. It should be a simple fold. Some testflights have already successfully been done.

    Has anyone else read about it? Because of reading it in early march i hope it isn't an early april fools.
