A Nasa scientist has theorised intelligent alien life may have already been on Earth and believes that current thinking about extraterrestrial life is far too narrow. He called for physicists to take part in "speculative physics", grounded in our most solid theories but "with some willingness to stretch possibilities as to the nature of space-time and energy" and to "consider the UFO phenomenon worthy of study".

We’ve taken giant leaps and left our mark in the heavens. Now we’re building the next chapter, returning to the Moon to stay, and preparing to go beyond. We are NASA – and after 60 years, we’re just getting started.
Kidlington is a large village in Oxfordshire, England, with a population of a little less than 14,000, according to the last census. If you've never heard of it, you're not alone. Kidlington is a fairly average English village and not an exceptionally remarkable place.
Despite a lack of obvious tourist attractions, Kidlington locals have recently been surprised to see busloads of foreign tourists arriving on their streets and taking photographs.

GeoGuessr places the player on a series of five algorithmically determined semi-random locations around the world. The locations are limited to roads and other paths that have been photographed by Google Street View cameras, which excludes the majority of Asia and Africa, large portions of South America and most of the far north in Canada and Russia.

The Street View window of GeoGuessr does not provide any information beyond the street view images; things such as road signs, vegetation, businesses, climate, and landmarks have been suggested as some clues that may help the player determine their location. The player may also move about along the roads through the normal directional controls provided by Street View. Once the player is ready to guess the location, they will place a location marker on a zoom-able Google Map. After the placed marker is submitted as a guess, GeoGuessr reveals the true geographic location and assigns the player a score depending on how far away the player's guess was from the true location.
Capsula Mundi

Capsula Mundi is a cultural and broad-based project, which envisions a different approach to the way we think about death. It's an egg-shaped pod, an ancient and perfect form, made of biodegradable material, where our departed loved ones are placed for burial. Ashes will be held in small Capsulas while bodies will be laid down in a fetal position in larger pods. The pod will then be buried as a seed in the earth. A tree, chosen in life by the deceased, will be planted on top of it and serve as a memorial for the departed and as a legacy for posterity and the future of our planet. Family and friends will continue to care for the tree as it grows. Cemeteries will acquire a new look and, instead of the cold grey landscape we see today, they will grow into vibrant woodlands. The project is still in a start-up phase, but encouraged by worldwide enthusiasm for our concept, we are working to make it become a reality.

This ability to live in general harmony with the human population means that Japan is filled with places that have earned the nickname "Nekojima," or "Cat Island." Today, we take a whirlwind photo tour of 11 of them.

In the beginning, Kevin Lewandowski just wanted a way to keep track of his techno records.  
Now, 15 years later, the free website he set up for that purpose, Discogs.com, has become a vital resource for record collectors and the music industry, with a sprawling database of more than 6.5 million releases.

I’ve been asked many times to make a map of the finest Parisian pâtisseries, so here it is! It’s the product of having eaten over 400 different pastries, combined with scores of chocolates, confections and viennoiseries. All the addresses, store hours, phone numbers, and site links are below, plus I’ve listed-out the highlights from each shop. Could anything be more convenient for plotting a pastry binge in Paris? I’ve also ranked the shops in order of the probability that they will blow your mind – even though the first four shops listed tie for first place. Just know that every one featured here is so exceptional that ranking them was like choosing a favorite child; they’re all amazing in their own way.
