The new hypercars accelerate to 530 km / h. Braking looks like a volcanic eruption

Bugatti recently announced that it has created the world's first solid piece of titanium brake caliper using a 3D printer. Now we can see how the disc and caliper heat up when braking from just 380 km / h. We are just writing because the 1750 hp SSC Tuatara braking system must withstand speeds of over 500 km / h.

The code of the famous serial killer Zodiac has finally been broken… after 51 years

The code of the famous serial killer Zodiac has finally been broken… after 51 years

The zodiac is a nickname given to himself by the murderer prowling around San Francisco in the late 60's and 70's of the last century. Most likely, it comes from the name of a Swiss watchmaking company, because the killer used a symbol resembling the company's logo. The man confessed to murdering 37 people (5 victims could be confirmed), was never caught and became famous for letters sent to the press, with encrypted messages attached to them. And while the police had several types, Arthur Leigh Allen being the most serious, in the end no one was charged, and it took over 50 years to completely decode the Zodiac code.

The new electrolysis device will allow the extraction of hydrogen and oxygen from the salt water of Mars

The new electrolysis device will allow the extraction of hydrogen and oxygen from the salt water of Mars

Consequently, engineers at Washington University in St. Louis decided to develop a new electrolysis device that would turn Martian salt water into oxygen for breathing and hydrogen for propulsion. Because, as many of us remember from school, electrolysis of water is the process of decomposing a water molecule under the influence of an electric current into hydrogen and oxygen, which can then be used for other purposes. Therefore, it should be a solution that allows astronauts on site to obtain oxygen for breathing and hydrogen fuel at the same time, but ... this solution does not work very well with salt water, which is exactly what is found on Mars.
