Oceanbird cargo ship brings sail-power into the future

Swedish ship design firm Wallenius Marine aims to revolutionise shipping and put an end to the era of fossil-driven cargo ships with its new sail-powered Oceanbird concept vessel. Oceanbird wing riggs have more in common with airplane wings than traditional sails, while a specially designed hull means an early design based on a car carrier transporting 7,000 vehicles could cross the Atlantic in 12 days. The wing rigs are adapted to a 200 metres long and 40 metres wide cargo vessel. You will be able to reduce the height of the wings, which comes in handy when passing under bridges or if the surface area needs to be reduced due to strong winds. To be able to get in and out of harbours - and as a safety measure and to be able to keep schedule - the vessel will also be equipped with an auxiliary engine, powered by the best alternative available today. However, the ship can reduce the amount of emissions on a journey by around 90 per cent when compared to a traditional cargo ship.

Houses 3D-printed from The Earth Show Future Of Sustainable Living

The world’s first eco-sustainable housing has been 3D printed in Italy entirely from local raw earth. The initiative from WASP – World’s Advanced Saving Project and - MCA - Mario Cucinella Architects is inspired by one of Italo Calvino's „invisible cities” - the city in continuous construction and dubbed TECLA (Technology and Clay). The homes have been built in Massa Lombarda, near Ravenna, Italy. Born from the vision of Massimo Moretti, WASP Founder and a research project by Mario Cucinella, Founder and Creative Director of Mario Cucinella Architects - TECLA responds to the increasingly serious climate emergency, to the need for sustainable homes - particularly in the context of urgent crises generated, for example, by large migrations or natural disasters. Houses are made entirely with reusable and recyclable materials, sourced from local soil, with multiple 3D printers operating simultaneously.

Colourised Warsaw

***EXCLUSIVE*** WARSAW, POLAND: A renowned colourizer has brought Warsaw in 1915 alive in COLOR in his new video. One scene from the video shows a busy marketplace after the city was occupied by German troops in August 1915. Another scene shows people standing around on the rubble of a destroyed street. The video titled ?Warsaw 1915 In Colour? was created by photographer and historical colorizer Mariusz Zaj?c. The 6-minute video captures the excitement and trepidation that greeted this early stage of the war. Poland did not exist as an independent state during World War I. However, its geographical position between the fighting powers meant that much fighting and terrific human and material losses occurred on the Polish lands between 1914 and 1918. When World War I started, Polish territory was split during the partitions between Austria-Hungary, the German Empire and the Russian Empire. Poland became the scene of many operations of the Eastern Front of World War I. The main Battle of Warsaw, Poland took place in August of 1915. Mariusz's video showcases the city after it was occupied by German troops after the battle.

Supervolcanoes caused the first major mass extinction 450 million years ago, according to new research

***EXCLUSIVE*** Massive eruptions released nutrients into the ocean - reducing carbon dioxide and triggering an Ice Age.  Around 85 per cent of all marine-based species were wiped out. At the time the continents formed a single land mass, Pangaea.  The 'Late Ordovician' event reshaped the course of life on Earth, say scientists.  It coincided with two exceptionally large pulses of volcanic activity in present-day North America and South China.  Blankets of ash and lava laid down on the seafloor fertilised the oceans - driving a chain of events.  It included climatic cooling, glaciation, widespread reduction in ocean oxygen levels - and mass extinction.
