Europe is getting its first underwater restaurant and the rest of the world should take noteMove over Seaworld, there's a new attraction in town and you can eat there. A Norwegian architecture firm, Snøhetta, is building Europe's first underwater restaurant called Under, and it hopefully won't be the last.  SEE ALSO: Amazon just added a new feature that could mean big things for restaurants Image: snohetta website Image: snohetta websiteAccording to Snøhetta's website, the restaurant will have three levels: wardrobe area, champagne bar, and the dinning room. The restaurant will also function as a research center for marine life.  Wanna eat dinner surrounded by marine life? We do, too. The restaurant will stand five meters deep (about 16 feet) below sea level and will serve seafood from lobster to truffles. Where's the sign up sheet?  Image: snohetta websiteThe lead architect Rune Grasdal told
CNN the benefits of the project and what guests can expect: "One of the benefits of this building is how it links nature and land, and how you can come safe from the land and in a very dramatic way go down through this concrete tube to the nature at sea level, and experience what normally is not experienced." While the restaurant won't be open until 2019, we'll just have to settle for the ones on land.  WATCH: Baby manatees take to the sky for rehabilitation

Stephen Paddock: Note found in Las Vegas gunman's hotel room had calculations of bullet trajectories 'to maximise death toll'

Stephen Paddock: Note found in Las Vegas gunman's hotel room had calculations of bullet trajectories 'to maximise death toll'The gunman who launched a deadly attack on concertgoers in Las Vegas had written a detailed note on how to murder as many people as possible, authorities have reportedly said. Four officers who were the first to storm Stephen Paddock’s rented room at the Mandalay Bay hotel revealed chilling new details about the deadliest shooting in modern American history in an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes. Officer David Newton, from the Las Vegas Police Department’s K-9 unit, said he noticed the paper on the shooter’s nightstand, not far from one of the windows Paddock had smashed with a hammer before firing into the unsuspecting crowd below with high-powered semi-automatic rifles.

Las Vegas gunman pictured dead on hotel room floor alongside weapons, camera and final note

Las Vegas gunman pictured dead on hotel room floor alongside weapons, camera and final noteHigh-powered guns, shell casings and two tripod-mounted weapons litter the room that Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock used as a sniper's nest. Inside room 32135 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, and near Paddock's lifeless body, officers also found a paper and a pen on a table, suggesting he may have left a note. The first pictures from the scene also reveal that Paddock, 64, had mounted a camera inside the room, possibly to film the slaughter, and at least one outside it on an abandoned room service trolley. Another camera was in the peep hole of the door. Sheriff Joe Lombardo said: "I anticipate he was looking for anyone coming to arrest him." The pictures showed the door battered in with seven bullet holes near the base, where he had fired and hit an officer in the leg.

Police said he had shot himself.  One photograph from the scene shows Paddock lying in a pool of blood from a head wound among dozens of spent cartridge casings. A revolver lies near the body.  Fresh details about the massacre and the arsenal Paddock amassed emerged on Tuesday. A photo from inside the Mandalay Bay hotel room shows one of Paddock's guns Credit:  @Boston25/Twitter A total of 47 firearms were recovered from three locations searched by investigators – Paddock's hotel suite, his home in Mesquite, and another property associated with him in Reno, Nevada, according to Jill Snyder, special agent for the US Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF). Ms Snyder said 12 of the guns found in the hotel room were fitted with so-called bump-stock devices that allow the guns to be fired virtually as automatic weapons. The devices are legal under US law, even though fully automatic weapons are for the most part banned. Haunting video from 2016 shows the exact same room used by the Las Vegas shooter 01:10 The rifles, shotguns and pistols were purchased in four states – Nevada, Utah, California and Texas – Snyder told reporters at an evening news conference. Investigators sweeping the room found no fewer than 23 guns, including a Kalashnikov and AR-15 assault rifles, and a vast stockpile of  of military grade .223 calibre ammunition.   Graphic: How 'Bump-stock' devices work At least two of the weapons had been set up on tripods at windows overlooking the concert site.  Police said they believed he had used 10 suitcases to smuggle the weapons up to the room, which he had checked into using an ID belonging to his girlfriend, Marliou Dandy, four days earlier. Officers also found Ms Danley's slot machine card, which he had apparently been using to gamble with. Marilou Danley, who has returned to the US Credit: REUTERS "Danley arrived in the Philippines last month, and then there was a wire transfer to her account for $ 100,000 from Stephen," Nick Suarez, spokesman for the Philippines' National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), said.  Relatives said Paddock, a former accountant, was worth at least $ 2million and obsessively gambled tens of thousands of dollars.  The gunman's brother, Eric Paddock, said he recently received a text message showing his brother had won $ 40,000. "He'd grouse when he'd lost. But he never said he'd lost $ 4million or something. I think he would have told me," he said. Las Vegas gunman's brother: 'It's like an asteroid fell out of the sky' 01:03 But Paddock appears to have been gambling particularly heavily in the weeks ahead of the massacre, with records kept by Las Vegas casinos showing he engaged in 16 transactions of more than $ 10,000 in recent weeks. It was not clear if they represented wins or losses.  Police were still trying to find a motive to explain why Paddock fired hundreds of bullets into crowds who gathered for an open-air concert on Sunday night. Unlike other mass shooters in recent history, Paddock appears to have left no manifesto to justify his actions. Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock Credit: REUTERS FBI profiler Clint Van Zandt said usually after a mass shooting "people two or three days later say 'Ah, now I understand, I know what was going on in this guy's life'." But with Paddock "we don't know," he said. "He knew what he wanted to do. He knew how he was going to do it, and it doesn't seem like he had any kind of escape plan at all." Early on Monday, police found another arms cache including 19 weapons, several pounds of a commercially available explosive, and thousands of rounds of ammunition at his home in Mesquite, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. They found traces of ammonium nitrate fertilizer, which can be used to make homemade bombs, in his car.  Paddock's arsenal of high-powered weapons appears to have been assembled over several days in preparation for the massacre.  Inside a Mandalay Bay Hotel suite similar to the one used by Paddock  Paddock began his killing spree at 10.08pm on Sunday night, opening fire from his hotel room windows on concert goers at the the Route 91 country music festival below.   Craig Herman, 57, a contractor, told the Telegraph: "I was right in front of the stage.  I heard 'pop, pop, pop' over and over again. When he was reloading I ran. I stepped over a guy with blood pouring out of his head. He was dead. Gone. I saw maybe 15 others like that before I got out. "There were people screaming, lying on the ground. I've never seen so much blood. I kept thinking what type of person would do this, who would be that kind of stupid? Was it the Taliban? Mexican cartels? Gang related? But it was someone a bit like me."  Videos filmed by concert goers show that Paddock’s first volley lasted only about ten seconds – a time scale consistent with emptying the magazine on an automatic assault rifle. He fired several similar volleys over a period of about ten minutes.  Mandalay Bay hotel shooting As casualties mounted, dozens of bystanders, including off duty soldiers, policemen, and nurses, but also ordinary civilians scrambled to attend to the wounded.  They included Ross Woodward, a trooper with 1st Queens Dragoon Guards who had just completed a training deployment in the Nevada desert.  Recognising the sound of automatic fire, Woodward and two other off duty soldiers from the Welsh regiment ran towards the scene to tend to the wounded and shepherd people to safely. "He just said that he helped the injured and to get people to safety and that was it really,” Curtis Dyer, his brother, told the Press Association. "I'm dead proud of what he's done, that he was able to do it." A woman leaves flowers at a makeshift memorial on the Las Vegas Strip Credit: Reuters Julian Ness, 31, one of the first paramedics on the scene, told the Telegraph: "I started treating someone who'd been shot in the leg. Then someone ran up telling me about someone shot in the head, then there was someone shot three times in the chest. "There was blood everywhere. I never imagined seeing anything like this. We wanted to help everyone but we just had to make difficult decisions based the ones we could save. It breaks your heart." Taylor Winston, a 29 year old former US marine who was attending the concert with his friend, Jenn Lewis, also used skills learnt on the battlefield to save lives. “Jenn and I luckily found a truck with keys in it and started transporting priority victims to the hospital and made a couple trips and tried to help out the best we could until more ambulances could arrive,” the Iraq war veteran, from San Diego, told the Daily Beast. 50 dead in Las Vegas shooting, in pictures He and an off duty trauma nurse then set up a makeshift triage point, prioritizing casualties and telling victims to apply pressure to their wounds to stop the bleeding. Officers had identified the source of the shooting and arrived outside room 32135 by 10.24pm, 16 minutes after the massacre began. Paddock shot through the door as they approached, wounding a hotel security guard in the leg.  Sonny Morgan, who was on the 32nd floor at the time of the shooting, said: "I could smell the gun powder. It just kept going and going. I honestly thought it was like a terrorist attack, that someone was trying to blow up the hotel." In brief | Worst US mass shootings
