His next mission involves a climb on Mount Sharp on the Red Planet. And before the beginning of the mission, the vehicle sent us a selfie, which you see above.
Between the Alps and the Jura Mountains near Geneva, Switzerland, there is the Great Hardoni Accelerator (LHC), the best tool that scientists have at their disposal to research subatomic particles. With the help of the accelerator, physicists have discovered the existence of a subatomic quasiparticle, called “odderon”. The particle was searched for half a century.

Scandinavia’s first self-driving bus project, “Auto Pilot”, is set to launch in Stockholm on Jan. 24. During the six-month trial, the minibus will shuttle passengers up and down a 1.5-kilometer, pre-programmed stretch of road in Kista Science City. It uses “LiDAR” technology – meaning ‘Light Detection and Ranging’ – and an array of sensors to “see” what’s around it and safely navigate roads. Spearheaded by operator Nobina, the project might be bad news for Sweden’s bus drivers.
