Thanks to NASA's trusty Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), we now have some amazing shots of the inside of the lunar crater Aristarchus. It's one of the brightest spots on the moon's surface and while it can be seen by the naked eye on a good night, the LRO was able to get just 16 miles above it and give us some new views.
Chinese sculptor Zhan Wang has created a sculpture and video installation that takes the visitor inside what he calls My Personal Universe. It is his conceptualization of the chaos that may have existed at the moment of the big bang, theorized to have created our universe.

The Large Hadron Collider is like the supermodel of physics — larger than life and photographed a million times. Many people aren't exactly sure what its for and it's always upstaging the other science news. It's no surprise that a device with that much personality has become iconic enough to inspire a Lego homage.
Some guys just need a hobby. Qu Zhibo from China's Sichuan Province is one of those guys — he's spent the last three years cobbling together a miniature vehicle that is dubbed a "knock off " Hummer. Amazingly he only spent about 4,000 yuan ($600 USD) to do it.
