Baby Bugatti II enters production, and a few are still available

Nearly a year ago, Bugatti unveiled its cheapest vehicle ever at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. The car was called the Baby Bugatti II and was a three-fourths scale replica of the iconic racing car from the 1920s that bought the brand to racing fame. Bugatti points out that while all 500 cars were sold only three weeks after they were announced last year, a few clients have backed out due to the recent coronavirus pandemic, and "very few build slots have become available."

Cosmonaut aboard the ISS 3D prints human tissue for the first time

A Russian cosmonaut aboard the ISS has 3D printed human tissue for the first time in the microgravity of space. The cosmonaut used a magnetic levitation device created by Russian researchers to fabricate human cartilage from a few isolated cells. The scientists say that the work could lead to new techniques for regenerating tissues during long-term spaceflight.

We'd assume at this point that every smartphone user knows that their touchscreen is one of the nastiest devices they own. The surface of a touchscreen can be packed with viruses and bacteria that have the potential to make people sick. This is a particularly significant issue in the current world climate with the coronavirus pandemic leading to illnesses that could potentially kill people.

Astronomers capture the first image of a multi-planet system around a Sun-like star

Astronomers are thrilled with the latest image captured by the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope. The image is the first-ever taken of a Sun-like star that has a pair of giant exoplanets in orbit around it. Images of systems that have multiple planets are exceedingly rare and this particular image, seen below, is the first to ever directly observed with more than one planet orbiting.

New 3D models provide evidence that Venus is still geologically active

New 3D models provide evidence that Venus is still geologically active

A new scientific study has identified 30 recently active volcanoes on the surface of Venus. The study offers some of the best evidence ever that Venus is still a geologically active planet. The research was conducted by scientists at the University of Maryland and the Institute of geophysics at ETH Zürich. One researcher says that this is the first time scientists have been able to point to specific structures and say that it's not an ancient volcano, rather it's an active volcano.
