Airbus’ Massive New Airplane Whale Go Where No Marine Mammal Has Gone Before



This massive new cargo plane from Airbus has taken its maiden voyage over southern France, and with a smile no less.



The Airbus ‘BelugaXL’ sports a design inspired by the Arctic white whale, and will be the first of several utilized by Airbus to transport large aircraft mechanisms between its engineering facilities in Europe.



To give you a better idea on the size of this behemoth vessel: its roomy cargo area, with the fuselage spanning almost 30 feet in diameter, can house two wings for its Airbus ‘A350’ jetliner.



The ‘BelugaXL’ takes in cargo through a giant opening in the plane’s “forehead” that sits directly above the cockpit.



Airbus ‘BelugaXL’ is scheduled to enter regular service come 2019.



Whale this be the cutest design from Airbus yet?

10 Attributes of a Successful Artist According to Frank Lloyd Wright American architecture was forever changed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Throughout his storied career, which spanned more than 70 years, Wright not only created unique styles of architecture, but helped teach future generations of architects. In fact, it was his teaching that sustained him during periods of inactivity when he failed to win building commissions. In […]

Original ‘Winnie The Pooh’ Illustrated Map Sold For Record-Breaking US$567,000



An original map of ‘Hundred Acre Wood’—synonymous with Winnie the Pooh—has set a new world record in the category of illustrations for books through a recent auction.



Auction house Sotheby’s described the 1926 sketch, which sold for a whopping £430,000 (US$566,770), as likely being the “most famous map in children’s literature.”


The map—created by book illustrator EH Shepard—details the world of ‘Winnie the Pooh’ and captures the unique personalities of each of author Alan Alexander Milne’s beloved characters.



‘Eeyore’ is shown with his head in the grass while ‘Roo’ bounces to the “sandy pit.” ‘Winnie the Pooh’ looks out towards the woods, where ‘Christopher Robin’ resides on the other end. A compass is also seen on the top left corner of the map—its points detailed with the letters from the title character’s name.

 

The map was inspired by Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, near the Cotchford Farm that Milne bought in 1925, prior to writing about the famous bear. The map, which has been featured in Sotheby’s English Literature, Science, and History to name a few, recently surfaced for the first time after 50 years.

 

Experts had initially estimated a sale of between £100,000 (US$131,807) and £150,000 (US$197,710) for the map, but global attention drummed up sentiments and increased its value three-fold, finalizing it at £430,000 (US$566,770). This new record supersedes the previous record of £314,000 (US$413,865), set in 2014 for EH Shepard’s game ‘Poohsticks’ from the Milne book The House at Pooh Corner.



Dr Philip W Errington, Director of the Department of Printed Books and Manuscripts at Sotheby’s, explained that the map displays the skills of the artist. The strokes of Shepard’s pen can never be replicated and the visual guide to the world of Winnie the Pooh further raises its value.



The map was originally from the initial pages of the original 1926 book, and introduces the wonderful characters of Winnie the Pooh. The map, together with four other original illustrations that have not been seen for almost 50 years, fetched a total of £917,500 (US$1,209,305) at the auction.



You can see the close-up version of the illustration on Sotheby’s website.

New Vancouver’s Towers Looking like Jenga Büro Ole Scheeren started a new skycreeper project in Vancouver, unveiling plans for two towers composed of irregularly disposed glass blocks. This structure, that will be situated in the West End and will be called Barclay Village, reminds immediately the game of Jenga which questions the rules of balance and stability. https://buff.ly/2uCU6KL

Illustration Of Thai Cave Rescue Mission With Hidden Meanings Goes Viral

Image via Shutterstock



A stirring cartoon responding to the efforts taken to rescue the soccer team trapped in an underwater cave in Thailand is gaining traction from internet users around the world.



Artistic duo SISIDEA—comprising sisters Aruni Aunhawarakorn and Jantima Manasviyoungkul from Bangkok—first conceptualized the image when news broke that the soccer team and their coach were missing, but it only materialized after the first successful rescue.



The drawing comprises 12 little wild boars and a larger one, as well as several other animals and ‘Iron Man’ swimming out of a cave. After its posting, the drawing was shared by the Royal Thai Navy on Facebook where it’s garnered 198,000 likes and 58,000 shares in less than 24 hours.


While adorable, there’s more than meets the eye because each character in the cartoon holds a special meaning. The boars refer to the boys and their soccer coach, while the white elephant in front of them represents Narongsak Osottanakorn, who is in charge of the rescue operations.



The white horse symbolizes every contributor of the rescue mission. “Everyone is a white knight,” the sisters explain.



The frogs refer to cave divers, the swallows represent Thai climbers, and the white seals are an apt wordplay on the Thai navy SEALs.



Additionally, the dog honors the K9 unit present at the scene, the dragon refers to the rescuers drilling into the cave to extract its waters, and the birds facing the animals symbolize the media.



There are also multiple homages to the countries assisting the mission. There’s a blue lion (Britain and Belgium), a kangaroo (Australia), a panda (China), a crane (Japan), a moose (Sweden), a tiger (Myanmar), a brown elephant (Laos), and an eagle (United States).



For good measure, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk appears in the image of an ‘Iron Man’ mask, since he’s built and sent a kid-sized submarine to aid the operations, with help from his engineering team.


The image isn’t all cheery, though. The single crow overlooking the situation refers to naysayers of the rescue mission.
