A man is attempting to walk across the Irish Sea - in a human HAMSTER WHEEL. Chris Todd, 35, from Bromham, Wiltshire, will zig-zag 66 miles across open water for two days non-stop. He will power his metal wheel - which he calls a Tredalo - by walking on wire mesh, with two floats either side to act as stabilisers. Todd still hopes to raise £20,000 for charity, and plans on making another attempt at the crossing later this month. He will consume a whopping 30 litres of water and munch the equivalent of 60 Mars bars to keep energy levels up. Donations can be made through his website.

A California-based company has taken a science fiction design similar in concept to “Star Wars” speeder bikes, which uses helicopter dynamics to lift and propel this motorcycle-sized vehicle across rough terrain. The firm Aerofex has fixed the stability issue by including a control bar at the the users knee level that allows the pilot to better lean and balance the vehicle. "It essentially captures the translations between the two in three axis (pitch, roll and yaw), and activates the aerodynamic controls required to counter the movement — which lines the vehicle back up with the pilot," De Roche told InnovationNewsDaily. "Since [the pilot's] balancing movements are instinctive and constant, it plays out quite effortlessly to him." The vehicle has been tested in California’s Mojave Desert and in more crowded conditions. Currently, the Aerofex machine is being tested at a top speed of 30 mph and a max height of 15 feet above the ground.
Aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart would be 115 years old today, and to mark the occasion, Google has created a doodle that shows Amelia climbing onto an aircraft. Amelia Mary Earhart (1897 - disappeared 1937) was an American aviation pioneer and author. She was the first aviatrix to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. During an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937 in a Purdue-funded Lockheed Model 10 Electra, Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island.
Archaeologists have unearthed four linen bras in an Austrian castle which are believed to be nearly 600 years old. In addition to the four bras, researchers also found a linen undergarment with a drawstring which bears a strong resemblance to modern-day panties. One specimen in particular "looks exactly like a (modern) brassiere," says Hilary Davidson, fashion curator for the London Museum. "These are amazing finds."
Good news! British aerospace company Excalibur Almaz is ready to sell tickets to the moon, only $155 million per person! The company, based on the Isle of Man, was founded in 2005 by a Huston patent and space lawyer named Art Dula. Dula said in an interview that Excalibur Almaz would ferry passengers to and from lunar orbit in used Soviet spacecraft starting in 3 years. They will use Soviet-era Soyuz-FG rockets to get their operation off the ground. The module or the space station will orbit but not land on the moon during a journey that will take about 6 months for a round trip. Will you the taker?
"The 'eHighway' system designed by siemens corporation combines hybrid trucks and overhead electrical wires to eliminate fuel and noise emissions on heavily traveled stretches of highway or urban routes. already in road trials in germany, the technology will be tested next in los angeles and long beach, california, after having been unveiled at the electric vehicle symposium 2012." Good idea.
