From today's featured list

Volumes 49 to 72 of the Naruto manga series were published between January 4, 2010, and February 4, 2015. The plot of Naruto, written and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto, is divided in two; the second part is known as Part II. The series is about the eponymous character Naruto Uzumaki, who wants recognition and respect from the fellow villagers, and to become the Hokage, the leader of Konohagakure. Part II, set two-and-a-half years after the conclusion of Part I, follows the return of the ninja Uzumaki to Konohagakure from two-and-a-half years of training. Naruto was published in individual chapters by Shueisha in Weekly Shōnen Jump and later collected in tankōbon format with extra content. The English version (serialization) of the Naruto manga, licensed by Viz Media, is published in North America in the Weekly Shonen Jump digital magazine. An anime adaptation of Part II, produced by Studio Pierrot and TV Tokyo, premiered on February 15, 2007, on TV Tokyo as Naruto: Shippuden. (Full list...)

SpaceShipOne Flight 17P

SpaceShipOne, an experimental air-launched rocket-powered aircraft with suborbital flight capability at speeds of up to 900 m/s (3,000 ft/s), prior to takeoff during Flight 17P on October 4, 2004. Flown by Brian Binnie, SpaceShipOne reached an altitude of 112 kilometres (70 mi) and a speed of Mach 3.09. After the flight, SpaceShipOne's developers won the $10,000,000 X Prize as the first non-government organization to launch a reusable manned spacecraft into space twice within two weeks. SpaceShipOne was then retired and placed on exhibit at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.
