1. Solvay Conference - 1927

(The International Solvay Institutes for Physics and Chemistry, are located in Brussels. They were founded by the Belgian industrialist Ernest Solvay in 1912, following the first world physics conference. - 1911 Conseil Solvay.

This photo was taken on October 1927 during the Fifth Solvay International Conference on Electrons and Photons, where the world's leading physicists met to discuss the newly created quantum theory. The leading figures were Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr.

Einstein, disenchanted with Heisenberg's "Uncertainty Principle," remarked "God does not play dice." Bohr replied, "Einstein, stop telling God what to do.")

4. Iberian Lynx

(Although not targeted by hunters the Iberian Lynx is a category 1 endangered species which means that there are less than 100 in the wild. Their main staple diet is the hare. Most of the ones killed, lose their lives in traps set for other animals. )

5. Twin Linear Aerospike XRS-2200 Engine

(The test of twin Linear Aerospike XRS-2200 engines, originally built for the X-33 program, was performed on August 6, 2001 at NASA's Stennis Space Center, Mississippi. The engines were fired for the planned 90 seconds and reached a planned maximum power of 85 percent. NASA's Second Generation Reusable Launch Vehicle Program , also known as the Space Launch Initiative (SLI), is making advances in propulsion technology with this third and final successful engine hot fire, designed to test electro-mechanical actuators. Information learned from this hot fire test series about new electro-mechanical actuator technology, which controls the flow of propellants in rocket engines, could provide key advancements for the propulsion systems for future spacecraft. The Second Generation Reusable Launch Vehicle Program, led by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, is a technology development program designed to increase safety and reliability while reducing costs for space travel. The X-33 program was cancelled in March 2001.)
