This all-electric off-road spider car can drive over just about anything

It may not look like your typical off-roading beast, but the ingenious Swincar by French company Mecanroc may be the most incredible ATV ever created. With four independent wheels mounted on spider-like legs and a suspended hammock-like seat for the driver, this thing can tackle terrain that most vehicles could never even attempt. Seventy-percent grade? No problem. Down the center of an irrigation ditch with each wheel at a different height? Easy peasy. Better yet, the all-electric four-wheeler can do all that with none of the smog-generating pollution of traditional off-road vehicles.

This incredible 390-year-old bonsai tree survived an atomic bomb blast

Almost 70 years ago, on 6 August 1945, the U.S. dropped the atomic bomb “Little Boy” over Hiroshima. It killed some 200,000 people and caused incalculable long-term damage. Yet, just two miles from the site of the bomb blast, a Japanese white pine bonsai tree that had been tended to every day since 1625 sat against a wall of a nursery—and due to its fortuitous placement, the tree survived even as windows of an adjacent building were blown out. The bonsai was donated without explanation to the National Arboretum in Washington, DC in 1976, only for its story—and astonishing age—to be revealed in 2001.

Recently, a Long Island restaurant worker discovered a lobster the size of a small child in a shipping crate. The crustacean weighs in at 23 pounds and, judging by its size, could be as old as 95 years. Luckily for him, he will be sent off to live out the remainder of his golden years in an aquarium, instead of succumbing to the taste buds of all the hungry press and customers who have swarmed to catch a glimpse.

After the 2011 earthquake and subsequent tsunami that destroyed the Fukishima nuclear power plant, Japan is diversifying its energy mix. Engineers are currently installing the world’s largest floating wind turbine just 12 miles off the Fukishima coast. It is one of three turbines sponsored by the Japanese government that will be connected to a floating sub-power station.

The government of Botswana, neighbor to Zimbabwe and the Hwange National Park, from where famed and revered lion Cecil was lured and killed earlier this month, has confirmed a nationwide ban on trophy hunting.

The west African Ebola epidemic may soon be fizzling out, thanks to the speedy development of a vaccine that has shown 100% effectiveness against the virus in clinical trials. Normal vaccine trials can take decades to produce results, but thanks to 4,000 people in Guinea who volunteered for the trials, along with a combined effort by multiple countries and organizations, the vaccine will begin saving lives right away.

The Stanford Solar Car Project just unveiled its next generation sun-powered car: the Arctan. The solar array built on the Arctan’s upper surface is composed of SunPower Maxeon cells, one of the most advanced solar cells available. In order to increase the vehicle’s performance over the team’s previous model, the Arctan was manufactured using lighter materials and a more efficient method of solar cell encapsulation. This new system resulted in a 50 percent weight reduction over the previous model, the Luminos.

Mass pigeon kidnapping leaves Washington Square Park locals mourning feathered friends

Washington Square Park-goers may have noticed that the flock of pigeons that usually floods the green space is suddenly much smaller. According to the Washington Square Park Blog, close to 300 pigeons were netted and captured late last month in broad daylight. Bowery Boogie reports that the kidnapping isn’t an isolated event, and that the stolen pigeons will be transported to Pennsylvania and sold for hunting events where they will have their wings clipped and be launched into the air and shot at. While the birds may have been a nuisance to some, others, like artist and local Tina Trachtenberg, are mourning their loss.
