The latest image from the Juno probe shows gigantic storms raging across the southern hemisphere of the planet. It reveals the vast storms and swirling vortices cover the entire planet. The color-enhanced image was taken at 11:31 p.m. PDT on May 23, 2018 (2:31 a.m. EDT on May 24), as the spacecraft performed its 13th close flyby of Jupiter. At the time, Juno was about 44,300 miles (71,400 kilometers) from the planet's cloud tops, above a southern latitude of 71 degrees.
Inside Tesla's Model 3 production line: Tesla shares tumble amid claims 'tense and short tempered' Elon Musk ordered engineers to skip key braking tests to meet production targets
Fresh details of the Tesla Model 3 production line in the days leading up to the firm's battle to produce 5,000 cars in a week have emerged. They paint a picture of a tense and short-tempered Chief Executive Elon Musk barked at engineers on the Fremont, California assembly line. It comes as shares in the car maker tumbled amid claims Musk asked engineers to remove a standard brake test, called the brake-and-roll test, to allow cars to move through the production process quicker.
Japanese online fashion retailer Zozo is expanding its made-to-measure clothes using polka dot bodysuits, which help customers upload their measurements.The Zozosuit is made up of 400 markers that ensure precise measurements. Users take photographs in the suit with a smartphone that and upload them to an accompanying app.
Disney has unveiled a new robotic kit that can create a 'Puppybot' machine. The 'Puppybot' prototype robot moves just like a real dog on four legs. Disney says their method generates a functional, as simple as possible robotic device that is capable of solving tasks. The computer system uses a library of components to create potential robotic designs.
Stunning footage captures evidence a fourth non-human primate has entered its stone age, using special tools to crack open food
An international team of experts made the discovery while observing white-faced capuchins in Panama’s Coiba National Park. The researchers decided to place camera trap on three islands in the park in an attempt to capture and study their behaviour. Only capuchins on one island, Jicarón, exhibited the use of tools (pictured), suggesting that primates - including our own ancestors - may simply have stumbled into the use of stone tools and entered the stone age by chance. The species is believed to be the fourth non-human primate to have made the cognitive leap to regularly employing shaped rocks to achieve certain tasks.
Now THAT'S a firework show: NASA releases stunning image of a 'starburst region' 22,000 light years away
The incredible image reveals a nebula, located 20,000 light-years away in the constellation Carina, that contains a central cluster of huge, hot stars, called NGC 3603. The cluster is surrounded by clouds of interstellar gas and dust - the raw material for new star formation. NGC 3603 is known a starburst region: a cosmic factory where stars form frantically from the nebula’s extended clouds of gas and dust. Star clusters like NGC 3603 provide important clues to understanding the origin of massive star formation in the early, distant universe.
She's even unbeatable as a Bitmoji! Snapchat's new lens lets you play tennis against Serena Williams (and even she can't win against herself)
Snapchat has released a new interactive 3D Bitmoji Lens that lets users 'play' Serena Williams in a fast-paced match to celebrate the start of Wimbledon. 'It's so fun because how often do you get to play against me,' Williams said. To use the lens, open Snapchat filters and tap to play against Williams.
The haunting trench art of a WWI prisoner of war: Romantic scene carved into a metal canteen 100 years ago reveals the 'deep longing' of a Russian soldier held captive in Poland
Etched into a canteen (shown left) found at the site of the World War I prisoner-of-war camp in Czersk is a detailed scene of a man and woman caught in a loving embrace. It comes in stark contrast to the gruesome first-hand accounts of life at the POW camp (illustrated above), where hunger, forced labor, and infectious disease were widespread. Experts say so-called trench art like this often captured life’s sentimental moments, reflecting the ‘personal stories, feelings, and fears’ of soldiers during war.
Mystery of Alexandria's largest coffin: Archaeologists unearth 8.6-foot-long stone sarcophagus buried in Egypt 2,000 years ago beside a massive stone head
Egyptian archaeologists have discovered what’s thought to be the largest granite sarcophagus ever found in Alexandria, measuring nearly nine feet long. The massive stone casket was buried more than 16 feet beneath the surface alongside a huge alabaster head – likely belonging to the man who owned the tomb. Experts say the ancient coffin has remained untouched since its burial thousands of years ago during the Ptolemaic period.
ESO's Very Large Telescope (inset) in Chile's Atacama desert captured the stunning image (pictured, main) which is believed to be around 370 light years from Earth. The planet is roughly 1.8 billion miles (three billion kilometres) from the central star, about the same as the distance between Uranus and the Sun. For scale, that is almost as far as travelling around Earth's equator almost 75,000 times. Despite being this far from its star, it has a surface temperature of more than 1,000 °C.
The stunning 'river map' of the world that reveals water cover substantially more of Earth's surface than we thought
Scientists have created the most detailed map yet of Earth’s extensive river systems, revealing these bodies of water cover much more of the surface than previously thought. The Global River Widths map was created using NASA satellite images and statistical techniques to measure the length and width of rivers and streams all around the world. The new study suggests scientists may previously have underestimated the role of rivers in controlling atmospheric greenhouse gases.
The biggest retirement home in the galaxy: Hubble spots gigantic cluster of hundreds of thousands of 10 billion year old stars
The cluster, known as NGC 6139, has hundreds of thousands of stars within it which are believed to have been formed over 10 billion years ago. This cluster is seen roughly in the direction of the center of the Milky Way, in the constellation of Scorpius (the Scorpion). The phenomenon is known as a massive globular cluster, and is a gravitationally bound collection of stars that orbits the Milky Way. They typically contain hundreds of thousands of stars that are thought to have formed at roughly the same time.
