  • Almost every second, lightning triggers powerful electrical bursts in our atmosphere. But the inner workings of lightning are still unknown. Indeed, when Andreas Mogensen directed a high-resolution camera towards a gigantic thunderstorm, while flying over India at 28.800 km/h in 2015, he made spectacular, first of its kind footage.

  • We could, of course, explain ourselves and bore you half to death with bombastic adjectives. But we’d rather just show you.

  • “Putin then went on to weapons systems that were not previously known to the public. One is a yet-to-be-named cruise missile with an almost unlimited range. This is achieved thanks to a highly-efficient on-board miniaturized nuclear reactor, which powers the flight. Such a missile can fly low enough to avoid early detection, can change course to avoid enemy anti-missile assets along its path, and maneuver to pierce the anti-missile systems protecting its target.”
