The new hypercars accelerate to 530 km / h. Braking looks like a volcanic eruption

Bugatti recently announced that it has created the world's first solid piece of titanium brake caliper using a 3D printer. Now we can see how the disc and caliper heat up when braking from just 380 km / h. We are just writing because the 1750 hp SSC Tuatara braking system must withstand speeds of over 500 km / h.

We haven't seen such a well-preserved Ice Age wolf yet

The mummified little she-wolf - in perfect condition - was discovered by people involved in gold mining in Canada in 2016, but only now have we learned the secrets it holds. \u201cHe's the most complete Ice Age wolf we've ever found. All her soft tissues, her hair, her skin, and even her tiny nose are there. It's just complete. And that's very rare, explains study author Julie Meachen of Des Moines University. The specimen underwent a number of highly detailed analyzes, including radiocarbon dating, DNA sampling, and measurements of oxygen isotope levels. Thanks to this, we know exactly when the puppy died, and we know its age at the time of death, which was only 7 weeks.

The Pfizer vaccine will deal with new mutations in the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus

Scientists, of course, immediately began to carry out the relevant research, and as the conclusions have just published, there is no reason to worry, because the vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech is effective in the fight against 16 different mutations of the coronavirus, including the "British". According to Reuters, the vaccine does not need to be modified in order to counteract a virus that appears to be more contagious than others, according to a study by researchers at Pfizer and the University of Texas.

There is the first confirmed transmission of Covid-19 to great apes

According to the managers of this facility, gorillas started coughing last week, so it was decided to test them for Covid-19 - it quickly turned out to be positive, and a third individual also started showing symptoms. At the moment, it is difficult to say anything more, but there are many indications that they may have been infected by an asymptomatically infected zoo worker, but it will be a while before the theory can be 100% confirmed or ruled out. Fortunately, gorillas, apart from fatigue and coughing, are doing well. They are in quarantine together, drinking and eating. We are full of hope for a full recovery, says zoo executive director Lisa Peterson.
