Today's pictures & links:

Russian Lunar Rover is found in the garbage

Very sad story, really, somewhat similar to Wall-E sentiments - "Lunokhod" (Moon Walker) was actually a very cute machine, having a glamorous and grand history of Moon exploration:

This photograph was taken in the courtyard of the Institute for Space Studies - they came back with a statement that this is only a model, slated for restoration (damage control? we're not sure what to believe now)

Smile!.. or not:

Let's get the picture, and get out of here!


Alfa Romeo Pandeon Concept 2010

Alfa Romeo and Bertone design studio collaborated on this spectacular car concept, which looks sort-of predatory (name comes from a unique bird of prey in the Osprey family), but still very alluring - see more at Supercars.net

Is it a prime example of a wild avantgarde car art? I think so -

This is a huge ship. Knock Nevis was a supertanker generally considered the largest ship ever built - more info and pictures here. And it is now in the process of being scrapped.

It has been difficult to find it in Google Earth for some time, but now it has been located at the Alang Ship Breaking Yard - link. Coordinates: 21°25'05.02 N 72°12'26.53 W
