This is a rare meteorological phenomenon called a skypunch. When people see these, they think it’s the end of the world. Ice crystals form above the high-altitude cirro-cumulo-stratus clouds, then fall downward, punching a hole in the cloud cover.

Zero-emission fusion reactor developed by engineers at the University of Washington, promises ‘cheaper than coal’ energy.

The design of the reactor creates a magnetic field to hold plasma, in extremely high temperature, in place long enough for fusion to occur.
The engineers warn a full-sized version is years away, and claim the design is cheaper than building a coal power station.

Thomas Jarboe, a professor of aeronautics and astronautics at the university, said:

“Right now, this design has the greatest potential of producing economical fusion power of any current concept.”

Mechanic and welder Sergei Kulagin, 32, strengthens the bracing of a spider sculpture, made by Kulagin, during a demonstration on the wall of an automobile repair workshop in the town of Divnogorsk outside Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, October 15, 2014. Enthusiast Kulagin, who works as a mechanic of an automobile service station, created about 20 sculptures made of used car parts and components during his non-working hours.

“Long Ma” – the French Mechanical Installation

A mechanical installation named “Long Ma” is operated at a rehearsal of the Long Ma performance in front of the National Stadium, also known as the Bird’s Nest, in Beijing October 10, 2014. “Long Ma”, a 17-meter (56-ft) long and 15-meter (49-ft) tall mechanized dragon sculpture, and “The Spider”, a 5.7-meter (19-ft) tall and 6-meter (20-ft) wide machine, are operated by French performance art company La Machine. The structures are operated by an automatic control system and electronic equipment. The performance, which combines Chinese culture and French art, will be held next week in Beijing in honour of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries, an organiser of the event said.
