Indeed only finish in 57th position in its class, but Acciona finally succeeded in completing the rally along more than 9,000 kilometers. And in 2017 also for the third time Acciona's competing in the Dakar Rally.

The cars named 100% EcoPowered itself used the electric motor with the power of 250 kW which is able to burst a torque of 800 Nm. And 100% EcoPowered advantages is its ability to recharge independently on 150 kWh battery module.
And its power sources derived from solar thermal energy absorbed by a 100 watt solar panel on the car's roof, and providing the power without stopping along the rally.

The Acciona project in Dakar Rally called as "sustainability challenges" is to rely on the duo rider Ariel Jatón and Tito Rolón behind the cockpit. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ACCIONA]

As seen in the photos, the Japanese famous modifiers apply the extreme stance concept on a Ferrari 488 GTB supercar.

In addition to the giant over fenders to the rim offset which now get out much, the Ferrari 488 GTB modified by Liberty Walk is also paired bodykit like lip spoiler at the front, the splitter in addition to the massive size of the spoiler on the back.

As a result, these mid-engined Ferrari with a wide body kit that looks more proper! Like the other works of Liberty Walk before, these Ferrari 488 GTB that used V8 3.9 liter twin-turbo engine is also so perfect eyegasm for the classy modifiers.

Previously, Liberty Walk also made a version of the extreme stance concepts on some other exotic cars like the Ferrari F430, 360 Modena, 458 Italia, Lamborghini Huracan and also McLaren 650S. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS]

Turned out the Moon was 4.51 billion years old

According to scientists, it turns out the moon was older than previously thought, which is 4.51 billion years old. Thus the latest estimates, thanks to the rocks and soil samples collected by the astronauts of Apollo 14 on the moon.
The study has put the age of the Moon at at least 4.51 billion years — up to 140 million years older than previously thought, according to a new study of minerals called zircons brought back from the lunar body to the Earth by the Apollo 14 mission in 1971. (Picture from: http://adf.ly/1iDSow)
A team of researchers reported on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 that the moon formed within 60 million years of the birth of the solar system. The estimates range from 100 million the previous year, then to 200 million years after the creation of the solar system, instead of the 4.6 billion years ago.

Scientists are calculating the age of the moon by using the uranium-lead zircon metal fragments were extracted from samples of moon taken from the Apollo 14 missions. The pieces of zircon was very small, no bigger than a grain of sand.

"Size does not matter, because the fragments record an incredible information!" said the study's lead author Melanie Barboni from the University of California, Los Angeles. She added that the moon has "so many wonders key to understanding how our beautiful Earth formed and evolved."

Some of the eight samples of zircon has been used in a previous study, also conducted at UCLA. Barboni said that she was learning more zircon samples from the Apollo 14, but she expects it will not change the estimated age of the moon is around 4.51 billion year, at most only be 4.52 billion years old.

As we lall knew, the Apollo 14 astronauts, Alan Shepard and Edgar Mitchell collected approximately 41.73 kilograms and uses tubes to dig the ground while exploring the Fra Mauro highlands in February 1971. They walk twice on the moon, as a whole for nine hours on the lunar surface.

And this is the second major study of the moon on this week. Earlier, on Monday, Israeli scientists concluded that the moon may have formed from many mini moons. The moon, according to them, are not formed from the massive giant power hit and release the body parts of the Earth, but from a series of smaller collision may have created many moons eventually merge into one.

This giant force theory says that the result of the blow energy forming the moon lava ocean later becomes solid. This solidification age which is now confirmed by the Barboni and her team.

Barboni said like any process of formation of the moon, the result is the compaction of the moon as it is known today. "We finally determine the minimum age of the formation of the moon, however the process," she said. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SCIENCEDAILY]

Nolan's Tumbler now got really vicious rival

Since the Batman movies started directed by Christopher Nolan in 2005, namely on "Batman Begins", in which the lovers of the legendary DC's superhero is always filled with the Batmobile with such a display of armored military vehicles.

As quoted from Carscoops on Saturday, January 14, 2017 This time the designer, drafter and illustrator of YasidDesign, also featuring their latest digital sketch of the Batmobile. 

Yes, by taking the spirit of Lamborghini Huracan, YasidDesain bring a new colors, especially in the looks of the most famous car in the comics history.

On the Nolan's version of Tumbler and especially on the front, it does not have the character or "styling" like cars in general, in which only displays two large wheels, no more than that. The concept offered by Nolan is really far of the character of the Batmobile in the past.

However, thanks to the brilliant idea of ​​the YasidDesign artists, then the face of the Tumbler facelift gets a big change on the front. And before they decide to take the Huracan looks, they say even thought about the Aventador.

"It's something different than before. It took several minutes for finishing and finally posted. Here's a Huracan merged with the mighty Tumbler," wrote the YasidDesign on their Facebook accounts. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | YASIDDESIGN | CARSCOOPS]

It turned out that dinosaurs became extinct because of the length of time hatching

The asteroid is not the only factor causing the extinction of dinosaurs 66 million years ago. Researchers also found that the length of time the hatching eggs are also influence at the extinction of the dinosaurs.

Recent research revealed that the dinosaur eggs take at least 6 months to hatch, much longer than previously thought that only 11-85 days. And according to a researcher from Florida State University named Gregory Erickson who studied two species of dinosaur, Protoceratops (dinosaur at the size of a sheep), as well as Hypacrosaurus (a big duck dinosaur).
(Pictured: Protoceratops andrewsi). Study reveals dinosaurs spent way longer in the egg than previously thought. (Picture from: http://adf.ly/1i9Tf8)
After scanning the jaws with CT Scan, the team extracted some teeth and analyze them with a high-resolution microscope. By using this technique allowing the researchers to identify the von Ebner lines, the growth lines owned by all animals.

"This is the development line of animals dental. Such a circle of trees. We can use this line to see the level of development of the dinosaur," Erickson said, as quoted of the Science Alert on January 3, 2017.

When analyzing, Erickson and his colleagues found that embryos of Protoceratops was 3 months old while Hypacrosaurus nearly 6 months.

"This means that dinosaurs had a slow progression. Three to six months allows the eggs are exposed to many risks, predators, drought and floods. Parent was potentially exposed to many risks," said Erickson.

The risk factors are more greater in extreme conditions, such as when the asteroid impact occurred. Under extreme conditions, the length of time hatching will increasingly hamper reproduction, thereby reducing survival.

In other words, the length of time hatching and catastrophic asteroid impact events is a combination that creates the extinction of the dinosaurs. This research was a preliminary study. And further research is needed to reveal whether other non avian dinosaurs are also experiencing a slow incubation period. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SCIENCE ALERT]
