Fastest Electric Car - Buckeye Bullet Sets EV Speed World Record

Fastest Electric Car 2010 - Buckeye Bullet Sets EV Speed World Record  

With more and more students and universities getting into the fight for establishing a new land speed record for battery electric powered vehicles, we are likely to receive more and more news like this one here.   For now however, a team of students from the Ohio State University leads this race, after their battery electric vehicle smashed the records on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.

The streamliner in question is called Buckeye Bullet and it managed to run at averages speeds of 495 km/h (307 mph, speed measured by track sensors), way faster than the previous record of 395 km/h (245 mph) set in 1990s by Pat Rummerfield in his White Lightning.

Although not yet certified by the International Automobile Federation, such an outcome is expected over the next few weeks. Pat Rummerfield already admitted his record has been broken and congratulated the team.

To certify the record, the governing body will have to average the two opposite direction runs made by the vehicles within 60 minutes of each other. According to the team, during one of the runs, the car hit 320 mph (514 km/h).

Buckeye Bullet is powered by a 600-kilowatt lithium-ion battery pack sourced from A123 Systems. The battery packs contains 1600 compact lithium-ion batteries just like the ones used in laptops.

"We've been at this for 16 years now - our latest lithium-ion powered vehicle was actually capable of going much faster," team manager David Cooke was quoted as saying after the run.

We'll probably hear from the team as soon as the record will have been certified.

Two moons on 27 August 2010 - double moon August 27 Greatest Event on Earth

Two moons on 27 August 2010 - double moon August 27 Greatest Event on Earth.

Two moons 2010 & Mars August 2010: double moon August 27 was nothing but a big hoax. Two moons in the sky, visibility of the Mars in the sky drives the claim of two moons

Astronomers reject the claim that the Mars will look like a moon on Friday night’s sky. Instead they said that the Mars will appear at dusk along with the Moon. But it will never emit light as the Moon does. The Mars can only make a pinprick of light in the sky.

It was largely spread on email forwards that the Mars along with the Moon will make two moons in the sky on 27th August Friday. But the reality is explained by experts as that the Mars will just come into sight close to the Venus. However it will be some 195 million miles away from the Earth.

More than that the Mars will never look like the Moon. It will just be a pinprick of light in the sky. Compared with the Moon on the same night, the Mars will be 400 times smaller. It can be visible in the western sky at dusk.

In other words, the Mars on Friday night will have an apparent diameter of almost 4.4 arcseconds. In the same time the Moon will have about 29.5 arcseconds. That really indicates the difference between the planet and the Moon. From these facts it can easily be understood that there won’t be any two moons phenomenon in the sky tonight as it is advertised.

However people can watch the Mars on Friday night. But there won’t be any astronomical significance for this event. Along with the Mars, Venus and Saturn will formulate a wonderful grouping at the western horizon.

World’s Biggest Tomato Fight in Spain - Tomatina Tomato Fight Festival 2010

2010 La Tomatina Festival - World’s Biggest Tomato Fight in Spain

More than 45,000 visitors from all over the world clashed Wednesday in a friendly tomato-battle known as the “Tomatina,” a peculiar celebration that is hosted each year by the eastern Spanish town of Buñol and at which the participants hurl more than 100 tons of tomatoes at one another for about an hour in what is probably the world’s largest food fight.

This year’s event transpired without any serious incidents and the municipal services only had to treat about a dozen people for fainting and slight eye irritations, according to what the councilwoman in charge of “fiestas” in Buñol, Pilar Garrigues, told Efe.

The 2010 Tomatina was marked by an increased number of participants, who did not seem to be bothered much by the heat wave the region has been experiencing when they “invaded” the town of 9,000 people early Wednesday morning.

Many of them had kept a all-night vigil in one of the local parks or inside their cars parked all over town to make sure they were as close as possible to the site of the day’s tomato-schlacht.

There were others who caught a little sleep just a few yards from the battlesite an hour or so before the event began.
As is the case each year, the celebration began hours earlier with the now-traditional street barbecues, the hurling of buckets of water from the balconies on the people in the street below, the pole smeared with soap up which people must shimmy to try and get a ham at the top, the throwing of wet shirts back and forth, a practice otherwise expressly prohibited because of its danger but which has become one of the classic behaviors engaged in on this unusual day.

There are also the costumes people wear and – although as the years go by it’s becoming more and more difficult to be original – the classic ones continue to triumph, including firemen, tomatoes, watermelon helmets and people wearing Elvis Presley-like sunglasses.

However, all the efforts to make the biggest splash with an original – or not so original – costume fall by the wayside when the dump trucks arrive loaded with ripe red tomatoes.

The loads are dumped into the square and the thousands on hand each grab up a few tomatoes and start hurling them at everyone in sight. It only takes a few moments for everyone to become liberally covered with red juice and seeds from their heads to their toes, and in some spots the tomato puree is soon knee-deep.

But if you think that it’s amazing how quickly the good-natured combatants pulverize and destroy the gigantic mounds of tomatoes, no less impressive is the efficiency with which the local residents subsequently clean the streets and building facades when the Tomatina concludes.

Hoses and buckets are brought out to facilitate the cleanup work – not only of the streets and
buildings but also of the tomato-covered participants – and it’s not long before all the tons of juice and tomato fragments strewn all over central Buñol have vanished. Until next year.

The larger number of visitors this year, however, meant that there had to be a strengthening in security, a task performed by around 120 police and a helicopter.

The festival, which had its origin as a simple act of “vandalism” in 1944, has managed – after periods of prohibition and censure – to transform itself over the past 30 years into a rather noteworthy international event.

In fact, this year’s edition of the tomato battle served as the inspiration for a movie crew from India who shot several scenes for a feature film, and for the South Korean government, which intends to develop a “sister-festival” relationship between the Tomatina and its Mud Festival in the town of Boryeong, where mud is used instead of tomatoes in a similar event.

In addition, about 30 media teams, including television networks from India, the United States, Ireland and Japan, had received permission to film the event from the town hall.

Watching Most Number Movie Guinness world Record Breaker Gwilym Hughes Dies

You've probably never heard of Gwilym Hughes, but he held one of the coolest, most enviable records of all time. The Welshman, who recently died at age 65, had watched over 28,000 movies (a world record, according to Guinness) during the course of his life.

The BBC hosts a buzzy article on the world's ultimate movie buff. The first film he ever watched was "King Solomon's Mines" in 1953, but his all-time number-one flick was "Lawrence of Arabia," starring Peter O'Toole.

Despite averaging well over a movie per day during his 65 years, Hughes was careful to point out that he wasn't obsessed with movies. "I watch films from about 9pm until about 12. Sometimes I could set up one on the televisions in the study. It works out about 10 to 14 films a week," he said. He never gets bored though. "I still watch every film with great keenness," he said.

So, what did Hughes think of modern movies? An article from The Free Library quotes the cinephile as saying, "My taste is a bit old-fashioned and I wouldn't cross the road to see some of today's movies." Amen to that. His fascination with films started when he was a young boy with an illness that left him in a hospital for over two years.

A blog from Dorkosphere.com explains that Hughes documented every movie he watched, keeping notebooks with his thoughts. According to Dorkosphere, Hughes' other favorite movies (besides "Lawrence of Arabia") were "The Third Man," "Zulu," "The Dam Busters," and "The Searchers."

If you haven't seen those movies, you may want to check them out. After all, there's no bigger authority on the greatest movies than the person who watched more than 28,000 of them.
