Every year Finali Mondiali (“World Finals” in English) mark the end of the Ferrari Corse Clienti racing season. A 4-days racing weekend where the various ‘Ferrari Challenge’ series decree their own champions plus XX Programmes and F1 Clienti alternate with free practice sessions on track. There’s also a final show on Sunday. This year “Finali” were at Monza Circuit and having a media pass I took the opportunity to record from those inaccessible spots around the track that have always intrigued me.

These towering tendrils of cosmic dust and gas sit at the heart of M16, or the Eagle Nebula. The aptly named Pillars of Creation, featured in this stunning Hubble image, are part of an active star-forming region within the nebula and hide newborn stars in their wispy columns.

Although this is not Hubble’s first image of this iconic feature of the Eagle Nebula, it is the most detailed. The blue colors in the image represent oxygen, red is sulfur, and green represents both nitrogen and hydrogen. The pillars are bathed in the scorching ultraviolet light from a cluster of young stars located just outside the frame. The winds from these stars are slowly eroding the towers of gas and dust.

Stretching roughly 4 to 5 light-years, the Pillars of Creation are a fascinating but relatively small feature of the entire Eagle Nebula, which spans 70 by 55 light-years. The nebula, discovered in 1745 by the Swiss astronomer Jean-Philippe Loys de Chéseaux, is located 7,000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Serpens. With an apparent magnitude of 6, the Eagle Nebula can be spotted through a small telescope and is best viewed during July. A large telescope and optimal viewing conditions are necessary to resolve the Pillars of Creation.

x15

The fabulously exhilarating and perfectly pioneering North American X-15.

As a young boy when it was introduced, I adored and doted over this thing. I built a lot of models back then, but this one, well, this was “the one,” you know?

I think it was the styling of it, all the wings at the back and painted jet black, so radically different for an airplane back then. And definitely not least there was the fact that it was playing a big part in the study of space.

Alongside the U.S. Air Force, we implemented the X-15 hypersonic aircraft during the 1950s and 1960s to improve aircraft and spacecraft.

The X-15 is capable of speeds exceeding Mach 6 (4,500 mph) at altitudes of 67 miles, reaching the very edge of space.

Dubbed the “finest and most productive research aircraft ever seen,” the X-15 was officially retired on October 24, 1968. The information collected by the X-15 contributed to the development of the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Space Shuttle programs.

Space! Yes, I was out there even then…

It might have played a part in my becoming a techno geeko prodigy, I don’t know, but, I bet it did.

It was simply too cool for words. Kind of still is, you dig?

Yeah…

1968 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale: 2.0 V8 Engine Sound, Warm Up & Driving!

19Bozzy92
Published on May 29, 2018

This is the very first time I saw this icon in real life and I have to admit it blew my mind. Maybe it’s just that engine sound, maybe for its dimensions and shapes but I finally understood why it’s considered one of the most beautiful car ever made.

The first prototype was shown to the public in 1967 during the Italian F1 GP in Monza and the plan was to built a little limited series of 50 examples. But only 18 were built and possibly only 10 of them are still in existence. It’s also one of the few road-legal cars to be created after the racing version featuring all the mechanical and technological characteristics of Alfa’s experience on the track.

Based on the successful Alfa Romeo Tipo 33/2, the body of the Stradale (which means “road legal” in Italian) was designed by Franco Scaglione. Compared to the race car the chassis was made in aluminuim and elongated a bit, plus the engine was depowered. This is a 2.0-litre V8 engine with 230 hp with an insane 10,000 rpm red line that was able to push the 700 kg car from 0 to 100 Km/h in just 5,5 seconds and hit a top speed of 270 km/h.

The car was launched on the market at an astronomical sum of almost 10 million Italian lire of the period (for a mere comparison you needed around 5 millions to buy a Jaguard and 6 for a Ferrari).

Watch a few detailed shots of this beauty I saw during the 2018 Concorso d’Eleganza of Villa d’Este in Cernobbio and hear the great sound of the V8 engine doing a loud warm up and driving!

This car is just so indescribably delicious. I have loved it since it came out. I hope you do, too.

I need to say that I was disappointed mucho that the guy has the door open almost the whole time he’s driving it around. What is up with that? Who does that? Besides being a sign of a doofus, it distracts from the beautifully organic feminine lines of the thing, robbing all the concours-goers of seeing the car in it’s intended state. Seriously.

Madonne… facepalm

They ought to fix that oiling problem, too… It’s a start up smoker. Sad.

Is St. George fighting a plesiosaur-inspired dragon in this 1678 illustration from Mundus Subterraneus? Abel (1939, also the source of this image) thought so, noting the shift towards plesiosaur-like proportions and anatomy compared to more conventional European dragon depictions of the time.

The giants and plesio-dragons of Mundus Subterraneus

Athanasius Kircher’s 1678 German textbook Mundus Subterraneus– an early thesis on geography, biology, mineralogy and geology – contains several illustrations of animals which may have been informed by fossils. They include many types of giant human, which were said to be social, cave-dwelling species based on the bones of large animals found in caves – almost certainly remnants of Pleistocene mammals. Kircher also wrote about several types of dragon, many of which were of period-typical, worm-like form, but Abel (1939) noted one unusual dragon illustration that may have been influenced by a real giant reptile: a plesiosaur.

The illustration is plesiosaur-like in many respects, with a barrel-like body, small head, long and slender neck, a true tail, and curiously small ‘paddle-like’ wings instead of broad, membranous wings typical of dragon depictions. It’s not a perfect plesiosaur depiction by any means – it also has ears, a beak, and four legs – but Abel (1939) considered this reinvention of dragon form so dramatic that it could represent the arrival of a new source of inspiration for dragon anatomy, of which plesiosaurs are a possible contender. Marine reptiles, including plesiosaurs, were almost certainly uncovered during quarrying work in the historic Swabia region (now southern Germany) as rocks we now call the Posidonia Shale were exploited to build growing settlements. The Posidonia Shale is a site of exceptional preservation with abundant invertebrate fossils and rarer, but often complete and articulated, marine reptile skeletons. Posidonia quarrying dates back to at least the 16th century and, given that the quarrying was executed by hand, 17th century quarrymen would have seen fossils of many kinds, almost certainly including some well preserved plesiosaur remains. Had these discoveries caused a stir among local learned individuals, as well a giant reptile entombed in stone might have, it’s not inconceivable to think they could have been identified as dragons, and ultimately influenced Mundus Subterraneus.

As with our discussion of cyclops art, these details are only circumstantial evidence and they do not prove beyond doubt that plesiosaurs were referenced in Kircher’s dragon art. But I find this case a little more compelling because our records of the early modern period are better, so the correlation between historic events is tighter and the contrast to other dragon illustrations more obvious. Moreover, whereas ancient cyclops art doesn’t really look like the fossils said to inspire it, I can see some obvious plesiosaur-like details in Kircher’s illustration. It’s difficult to be certain about the relevance of plesiosaurs fossils to the image but, for me, this is a possible, if unconfirmed, piece of proto-palaeoart.

Please read the rest of this wonderful piece by Mark Witton at Unicorns, dragons, monsters and giants: palaeoart before palaeontology.

Sweet! Extra sweet!

Especially as I have been enamored of a recent and quite scholarly thread on ATS called Evidence for the Co-Existence of Humans and Dinosaurs. If your interest is peaked you should have a read of that, too. It’s good! Up at 11 pages now and it’s got 108 flags. Just wonderful! You will see that the premise is exceptionally solid and you will know why, too.
