NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has delivered view of Saturn, taken while the spacecraft was in Saturn’s shadow. The cameras were turned toward Saturn and the sun so that the planet and rings are backlit. This special, very-high-phase viewing geometry lets scientists study ring and atmosphere phenomena not easily seen at a lower phase. Since images like this can only be taken while the sun is behind the planet, this beautiful view is all the more precious for its rarity. The last time Cassini captured a view like this was in Sept. 2006, when it captured a mosaic processed to look like natural color.
Automaker Bugatti promise to provide the fastest supercar in the world in 2013. The fastest supercar will be equipped with a total capacity of 1600 hp engine that will accelerate from 0 to 100 km in just 1.8 seconds. This car will be built in an attempt to break the world speed record. In 2010 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport set a speed record on the famous German highway. During the race, this car reached speeds of 431 km / h. The creators of the new racing car, hoping that their new supercar , which will be available in 2013 will be able to break this record and officially become the fastest supercar in the world. Bugatti auto company was founded in France by the Italian designer Ettore Bugatti. Bugatti car company involved in the most famous car races, such as “24 hours of Le Mans” and others.
Japanese neuroscientists have learned to anticipate the visual content of dreams. Results of their work, scientists reported on neurobiological conference in New Orleans. Experiments were carried out in blocks of three hours for a few weeks. Volunteers were placed in a scanner, where they were to sleep. Once in the brain, the experiment participants are beginning to have characteristic electrical activity of the onset of sleep, they woke and asked about the content of the dream. Within an hour, spends six to seven cycles of sleep and waking, but only one of the volunteers told about the content of their dreams about 200 times.
Astronomers from Observatory “Gemini” received the most detailed to date image of the unusual galaxy NGC 660, relating to a rare class of polar galaxies. The galaxy NGC 660 is located at a distance of 40 million light years from Earth near the constellation Pisces. It is as if two separate star clusters: the spiral and lenticular. Such galaxies are called polar – they rotate the outer ring over the poles of the internal cluster. In addition, NGC 660 is the only other known polar galaxies in which the center has an old lenticular congestion. All polar galaxies are a result of the interaction of two separate star clusters. Some of them can be formed by the collision of two galaxies formed (for example, a galaxy can be formed by a merger in the future, with the Milky Way Andromeda).
A team of research engineers from Tufts University, University of Illinois and Northwestern University have developed ultra-thin electronic devices that can dissolve in the body. As scientists say the new invention “Water Soluble electronics” can be widely used in medical applications. According to a study published in the journal «Science», the unit is fully “dissolve” after you have made all scheduled functions. The transient electronics are made of nanomembranes of silicon and magnesium oxide that are printed with circuitry much like a PCB, offering robust performance very similar to conventional electronics. Silicone is water-soluble but to prevent immediate disintegration, components are covered in silk.
The famous British car manufacturer McLaren Automotive Limited introduced its new elegant Sports Concept X1 in California, “U.S”.During annual automotive event called “Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance event”, which is held in California, car brand McLaren introduced its new X-1.

The car was designed by the German automaker Audi AG as a replacement for Audi R15 TDI. Like its direct predecessor, R18 is equipped with a turbocharged diesel engine, but the reduced capacity – 3.7 liters in the configuration of V6. In addition, the R18 prototype the first time since 1999 implemented a closed cabin design. Every year Audi R18 TDI wins a victory in the competition at Le Mans. However, Audi, as well as auto companies such as Peugeot and Toyota, is trying to equip its hybrid cars to reach a new level of racing and try to win with the new power plant. Brand new prototype hybrid Audi R18 has already been seen during a secret test drive on the track at Sebring (USA). The new hybrid will fully meet all the requirements of the races of Le Mans. According to preliminary data, the hybrid model of the Audi R18 will participate in next year’s competitions FIA World Endurance Championship 2012. With the new hybrid engine, the exterior of the car dramatically changed.
Czech company Skoda Auto in 2013, plans to launch sedan Skoda Octavia third generation, which is sometimes referred to as Skoda Octavia III.

But for individuals interested in the new generation Octavia has grown significantly – for the same reasons. The design of the new Octavia in general is positive emotions. There are some clearly visible differences from the previous car in the series. For instance, LED lights, located in front of the car, got kind of oblique parallelepiped, and placed them under the fog lights. Really changed the appearance of wings sedan. And stands out all the car radiator grille with chrome trim will bring the views of all others.
