NASA’s JPL is currently exploring an innovative robotic concept called SPARROW (Steam Propelled Autonomous Retrieval Robot for Ocean Worlds) that would would use steam propulsion to hop across of icy terrains like that on Jupiter’s moon Europa. This moon is speculated to have massive subsurface oceans of salty water under a thick ice crust.

First introduced in 1998, the Audi TT is a 2-door sports car now in its third generation. The takes TT name comes from the successful motor racing tradition of NSU in the British Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy) motorcycle race. With that said, what if the automaker were to create a futuristic up-sized, four-door concept based on this platform? Meet the Audi GT concept by designer Jordan Gendler. In addition to the four-door model, he also envisions a race car variant.
NASA’s Viking 1 lander first captured an incredible image of what a sunset looked like on Mars way back in 1976. Robots that came after Viking 1 have since transmitted multiple views of Martian sunrises and sunsets, including the one you see above. Geronimo Villanueva, a planetary scientist from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, decided to take things one step further.
The fourth-generation (A80) Toyota Supra MK4 built upon its predecessors and wanted to classify itself as a high-performance car. It was offered with two engines: the 2JZ-GE producing 220 hp and 210 lb⋅ft of torque as well as a twin turbocharged 2JZ-GTE variant boasting 321 hp and 315 lb⋅ft of torque. One auto enthusiast from the Netherlands decided to take things to a whole new level.

For those who have never watched the original Star Wars films, the Death Star is basically a space station and galactic superweapon that measures 75-miles in diameter, and crewed by approximately 1.7 million military personnel as well as 400,000 droids. Raphael from Epic Cardboard Props decided to recreate it with cardboard, and the result is quite stunning to say the least.
