Astronaut takes dragon into space
A Canadian astronaut will be paying tribute to his Welsh heritage once more on his second mission into space.

Dafydd Rhys Williams, whose father was from the valleys town of Bargoed, has already spoken Welsh in space and taken Gareth Edwards' rugby cap into orbit.

Weeks away from his second trip on the space shuttle, Dr Williams told BBC Wales that a Welsh dragon would be watching over his mission notebook.
