Paper airplane to be launched from International Space Station

The Japanese team on the International Space Station will launch a paper airplane (co-designed with the Japan Origami Airplane Association) into the Earth's atmosphere -- the plane's been treated with heat-resisting stuff and is expected to survive reentry.

It's not "2001," but you have to take what you can get.
