Pininfarina set about creating a highly futuristic, mid-engined, semi-monocoque concept car powered by Ferrari’s advanced 5.0 litre V12. The Modulo was built as a fully functioning road car and to this day still starts up and runs when you hit the on button.
Hydroptere, the world’s fastest sailboat, is about to set sail on a voyage to claim the transpacific speed record for a wind-powered vessel.
A marvel of engineering and materials technology, using a carbon composite and titanium frame design that floats up to 15 feet above the water. To reduce water drag and improve its aerodynamic shape, Hydroptere features a primary central foil and a pair of wings on either side that raise the ship above the surface at cruising speed. At full sail, the Hydroptere can reach speeds of up to 52 mph (83,7 km/h), a blinding speed for a sail-driven craft.

An exemplar of a bitter, grueling land battle, Iwo Jima also saw prodigious air and sea power brought to bear as American and Japanese troops clashed over control of the tiny Pacific island.
American forces finally captured Iwo Jima — and its two strategic airfields — in late March, 1945.

While using Google Maps one day, the German-born French photographer Christoph Sillem espied a large circle outside of Paris. It turned out to be a road surrounding Eurodisney. Upon first-hand investigation, he discovered a Disney town modeled on the style of Baron Haussmann, the French urban planner who in the 1860s, Suzanne LaBarre writes, transformed Paris into the “fussy gilded museum” it is today.
