Tombs of the Kings, Paphos Tombs of the Kings is an ancient necropolis containing numerous large tombs dating from the 4th century BCE to the 3rd century AD. The name is something of a misnomer as no kings are thought to have been buried here. The name, rather, refers to the magnificence of the tombs, which were the burial places of wealthy senior government officials and aristocrats.
Body armor of the future could be made of human hair Here’s something to think about next time you’re in the shower reaching for the shampoo: the hair on your head is so strong and stretchy that engineers studying it say what they’re learning could help them develop new materials, possibly even for body armor.

Is the multiverse physics, philosophy, or something else entirely? The idea of the multiverse — or the theoretical possibility of infinite parallel universes–straddles a strange world between science fiction and a plausible hypothesis. Though scientists have no direct evidence for the multiverse’s existence, some theoretical models suggest the multiverse could solve some key riddles in physics, such as why the parameters of our universe, including the strength of the the electromagnetic force between particles and the value of the cosmological constant, have values that are exactly in the small range required for life to exist. Perhaps, some scientists posit in one version of the multiverse theory, there are billions of other universes out there with all different possible values of these parameters—ours just happens to be the one with the right values for life.
5 Underrated Series for Long-Suffering Fans of Oft-Delayed Fantasy Doorstoppers Good news, everyone! George R.R. Martin has announced the very long awaited The Winds of Winter will be coming out this year!
Scott Lynch is pretty sure the fourth Gentleman Bastard book, The Thorn of Emberlain, will land in 2017. Patrick Rothfuss… Well, Patrick is making no such promises. Yet hope springs eternal for fans of epic science fiction and fantasy writers like those three and others who release their books only when they’re finished, and not necessarily when readers want or expect them (i.e. right now). No amount of praying, begging, sobbing, or goat sacrifices can make the books we’re craving come out any sooner. The night is long and full of delayed publication dates.
An Earth-Sized Telescope Is About to ‘See’ a Black Hole For the First Time This is the Atacama Large Millimeter Array, also known as ALMA—one of the world’s largest radio telescope arrays, an international partnership that spans four continents. In spring of 2017, ALMA, along with eight other telescopes around the world, will aim towards the center of the Milky Way, around 25,000 light years from Earth, in an attempt to capture the first-ever image of a black hole. This is part of a daring astronomy project called the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT).

Into the Badlands Season 2 – New Trailer and Premiere Date Announced Into the Badlands, in a mere six-episode first season, introduced audiences to a feudal dystopian world ruled by “Barons,” who each have a territory and a military force and rule with an iron hand. Technology is scant, resources (which include opium, crude oil) are precious, and one’s fists — or perhaps swords — do most of the talking. Daniel Wu’s Sunny, the primary protagonist, started as a “Clipper” — a soldier/enforcer — for his Baron, the manipulative and deadly Quinn, but, for reasons we won’t spoil, he has fled the nest by the end of season one. The primary force that sent Sunny’s life askew was the appearance of MK (Aramis Knight), who seems to have a mysterious power where he becomes possessed and incomparably deadly when he loses control. Sunny took MK under his wing, which put him in the position of protecting MK from not only his own Baron, Quinn, but the Baron called “The Widow,” and her daughter Tilda, who think MK is the key to achieving dominance for her faction.
Cuexcomate Standing a diminutive 43 feet tall, Cuexcomate is commonly known as the world’s smallest volcano. However it’s technically it’s not a volcano, but a geyser. The little mountain was allegedly born out of an eruption from the most famous volcano in Mexico, the Popocatépetl or “Popo.” Either way, it’s one of the cutest and most formidable attractions in the colonial city of Puebla.
