Pebble Beach reveal for Audi PB18 e-tron

Pebble Beach reveal for Audi PB18 e-tronThere’s an increasing number of brand new cars that get unveiled and rub shoulders with the many classics at Monterey Car Week these days, but it’s hard to think of many this year that are as modern or futuristic as the Audi PB18 e-tron concept that’s just revealed at Pebble Beach. Audi is well on the way towards introducing its first all-electric production models under its new e-tron designation, but the PB18 is a technical showcase of what a future electric-powered supercar from Audi could eventually look like. This stunning-looking model was designed by the team at Audi’s design studio located in Malibu, California, and it takes a healthy dose of its inspiration from Audi’s former LMP1 racing cars and the 2017 Aircon that was the company’s previous electric concept car.

Hiroshima bomber tasted lead after nuclear blast, rediscovered Enola Gay recordings reveal

Hiroshima bomber tasted lead after nuclear blast, rediscovered Enola Gay recordings revealTaped recordings and transcripts of interviews with the pilot and crew of the Enola Gay have been donated to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, 40 years after they were apparently lost and 73 years after the aircraft dropped the first atomic bomb used in warfare on the city. The 27 tapes cover 30 hours of interviews and are accompanied by 570 pages of typed transcripts that were collected by Gordon Thomas and Max Morgan-Witts before the publication of their book, “Enola Gay: Mission to Hiroshima”, in 1977. Officials of the museum told the Mainichi newspaper that it had been feared that the recordings had been subsequently lost.  They added that the recordings and documents are historically important to the overall story of the attack on Hiroshima because they reveal what was happening inside the aircraft during the mission as well as the feelings of the crew.  The transcript records Paul Tibbets, the pilot of the B-29 Superfortress, stating that the mission was shrouded in secrecy and that the crew had been issued with handguns and cyanide tablets in case they were shot down.  Hiroshima Mayor Kazumi Matsui (R) offers a new list of A-bomb dead, including individuals who died since last year's anniversary from the side effects of radiation Credit: AFP Mr Tibbets also said he had a taste like lead in his mouth the instant the bomb detonated above the city and a “big relief”.  “I got the brilliance. I tasted it. Yeah, I could taste it. It tasted like lead”, Mr Tibbets said. “And this was because of the fillings in my teeth. So that’s radiation, see. So I got this lead taste in my mouth and that was a big relief – I knew she had blown”.  Mr Tibbets put the Enola Gay into an evasive turn immediately after the bomb detonated, but the crew could feel the shockwave of the blast.  “If you can imagine yourself inside a tin building and somebody comes along on the outside and hits it with a hammer, you get the sound effect”, he said, adding that he could also see the mushroom cloud expanding over the city through his screen.  Doves fly over the Peace Memorial Park with the Atomic Bomb Dome in the background, at a ceremony in Hiroshima Credit: Reuters The recordings include comments by Thomas Ferebee, the bombardier who released the atomic bomb, and three other crew members.  The recordings were found in 2017 among the effects of a Japanese person, who has not been named, and were donated to the museum by his family.  On Friday, a minute’s silence was marked at 8:15am – the moment the bomb detonated above what is today Hiroshima’s Peace Park – in memory of those killed in the attack. An estimated 100,000 people died in the initial blast or subsequently of radiation poisoning. A second attack was conducted three days later against the city of Nagasaki, killing around 80,000 people, before Japan surrendered and ended World War II.  Kazumi Matsui, the mayor of Hiroshima, used his address at the memorial event to underline the horror of the first nuclear attack and call for more efforts to rid the world of atomic weapons.

Satellite photos reveal the devastation of Guatemala's Fuego volcano

Satellite photos reveal the devastation of Guatemala's Fuego volcanoHotel La Reunión Golf Resort and Residences sits in the shadow of Guatemala's Volcán de Fuego, at about five miles away. Prior to the June 3 eruption, it was a verdant land, with well-manicured lawns.  Two days later, harrowing avalanches of scorching volcanic ash, rocky debris, and gas — called pyroclastic flows — smothered La Reunión and the surrounding land. Satellite images taken before and after the eruption reveal the devastation, which was not caused by lava flows, but by these speeding chaotic avalanches.  SEE ALSO: Why Guatemala's volcano erupted in deadly avalanches, but Hawaii's hasn't Fuego, an explosive volcano, erupts like this "intermittently," Stanley Mertzman, a volcanologist at Franklin and Marshall College, said over email. For anyone studying this mountain, he recommends that "your life insurance is paid up," and if the mountain erupts, "to stay out of the valleys." It's good then, that La Reunión evacuated early before some of these pyroclastic flows traveled down the steep flanks of Fuego, moving down low-lying channels and blanketing the land below in gray-brown volcanic soot.  Hotel La Reunion Golf Resort and Residences on April 7, 2018.Image: ©2018 DIGITALGLOBE, A MAXAR COMPANY Hotel La Reunion Golf Resort and Residences on June 6, 2018.Image: ©2018 DigitalGlobe, a Maxar company In a statement the resort released on social media, La Reunión notes that it heeded evacuation warnings before the hot debris flows — which Mertzman said can range from 400 to over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit — pummeled the area. Not everyone around the volcano, however, was able to evacuate in time. As of June 6, the Guatemalan government reported 75 deaths due to Fuego's activity. Similar to La Reunión, the village of San Miguel Los Lotes has been buried in Fuego's sand-like, volcanic debris. "You can actually see gases emanating from the cooling warm mass," noted Mertzman.

The ranking ranges from 0 to 6, with 6 being the most explosive.  On a global scale, Fuego is decently explosive, falling between 3 and 4, said Mertzman.  As a counter example, Hawaii's Kilauea, which typically oozes lava and rarely kills people, falls somewhere between 0 and 1, he said.  WATCH: Ever wonder how the universe might end?
