The shadow art of Kumi Yamashita is simply spectacular! In the example above, the artist uses a piece of aluminum attached to a wall, light hits the object to form a shadow of two people.

Liu Yang, China’s first female astronaut
It might not be a giant step for mankind, but Saturday’s launch of a piloted space capsule known as Shenzhou-9 marks China’s breakthrough into the exclusive club once made up only of the United States and Russia. And as far as womankind is concerned, there is another first. One of the three astronauts in the capsule is a woman, 33-year-old Liu Yang, the first Chinese woman in space.

HOW FLYING CARS WILL WORK
Sitting amidst a sea of cars in bumper-to-bumper traffic on an endless expresswa­y, have you ever daydreamed about your car taking off and flying over the road? Imagine if you could just flip a switch and unshackle yourself from the asphalt!
In the last century, airplanes and mass-­produced cars have changed the way we live. Cars, which became affordable for the general population, have allowed us to move farther away from cities, and planes have cut travel time to faraway destinations considerably. At the beginning of a new century, we may see the realization of a century-old dream — the merging of cars and planes into roadable aircraft, or flying cars. You’ve probably heard promises about flying cars before, and the technology to make them safe and easy to fly may finally be here.
Read on to take a look back at some of the attempts to build a flying car, and examine some of the flying vehicles that you may be able to park in your garage in the next decade!
