APPLE'S BACK-TO-SCHOOL OFFERS APPLE offers deals for students each summer and has just revealed its offers for this year.

If you're looking for a Mac, you can get up to PS270 off eligible computers, plus a pair of Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones in the new Beats Pop Collection colours (they usually cost PS249.95).

iPad Pro is also on offer, with various savings available, depending on which model you go for - and you can get an Apple Pencil for less, too.

iPad Pro purchases through Apple's Education Store come with free Powerbeats3 Wireless headphones (worth PS169.99).

Students can also bag an Apple Music subscription for half-price, and you can get 20% off Apple Care's extended warranties.

There are lots of other deals on offer for students, too.

Education pricing is available to current and newly-accepted university students, parents buying for university students, and teachers and education staff at all levels.

Well, not quite - they'll be carried up to a high-altitude by a Boeing 747 before they're set free and sent on their way into space carrying very expensive satellites.

Still, it's all very exciting - especially as it's part of a whole new space initiative the UK is undertaking over the next few years.

Virgin Orbit, a spin-off of Virgin Galactic, the space-tourism venture which carries small satellites into space, plans to move some launches from California to Cornwall.

And the UK Space Agency has just revealed plans to build a rocket launch site at Sutherland, on the north coast of Scotland, to get into the lucrative business of launching satellites, which, they say, could add around PS4bn to the UK economy over the next 10 years.

A number of other sites for spaceports are also being investigated.
