The Spiral North Pole of Mars


Why is there a spiral around the North Pole of Mars? Each winter this pole develops a new outer layer about one meter thick composed of carbon dioxide frozen out of the thin Martian atmosphere. This fresh layer is deposited on a water-ice layer that exists year round. Strong winds blow down from above the cap's center and swirl due to the spin of the red planet -- contributing to Planum Boreum's spiral structure. The featured image is a perspective mosaic generated earlier this year from numerous images taken by ESA's Mars Express and elevations extracted from the laser altimeter aboard NASA's Mars Global Surveyor mission. New missions to Mars planned in the next few years include Insight with plans to drill into Mars, and ExoMars and the Mars 2020 Rover with plans to search for signs of microscopic Martian life -- past and present.

Pentágono admite programa secreto sobre OVNIs

Verificou-se que, até recentemente, o governo dos EUA havia executado um programa secreto de investigação de OVNIs.

De acordo com relatos, o programa foi fundado a pedido do ex-senador e entusiasta de OVNIs Harry Reid e foi criado para investigar avistamentos credíveis de objetos voadores não identificados.

Entre estes, havia relatórios de pilotos militares norte-americanos de objetos desconhecidos que viajavam a velocidades impossíveis sem qualquer meio visível de propulsão, ou pairando sem nenhum meio aparente de elevação.

“Se alguém diz que eles têm as respostas, eles estão se enganando”, escreveu Reid. “Nós não conhecemos as respostas, mas temos muitas evidências para apoiar as perguntas. Isto é sobre ciência e segurança nacional. Se a América não tomar a liderança na resposta a essas perguntas, outros irão”.

“Eu não tenho vergonha ou desculpa, eu consegui isso. Eu acho que é uma das coisas boas que eu fiz no meu serviço do Congresso. Eu fiz algo que ninguém já fez antes”.

O programa teria funcionado de 2007 a 2012 e custou um total de US $ 22 milhões. Conhecido como o Programa Avançado de Identificação de Ameaças de Aviação, ele foi encerrado por uma “mudança nas prioridades de financiamento”.

Lebanon’s thinnest building is nicknamed “The Grudge” by locals in Beirut. It was built specifically to block the building behind it from having a view of the ocean – and thus, blocking the other building from being worth something. According to residents in the neighborhood, The Grudge, or ‘al-Ba'sa’ in Arabic, was built in 1954.

The building is squished into a 120 meter-square block of land; it stands just 14 meters high and no wider than a meter (or 3 feet). But from the front it appears wider than it actually is, thanks to the numerous balconies and windows that provide the impression of spacious rooms behind.
