A night-time aerial view of oppression. Thanks to modern technology, we can see the effects of rigid ideologies from the stars.

Located in Siberia, Laka Baikal is the largest freshwater lake on the planet that contains approximately 20 percent of the Earth's freshwater. Apart from being the oldest lake in the world at over 25 million years old, Lake Baikal is also home to over two thousand varieties of flora and fauna, of which almost 1,600 are endemic to the lake.
The water of Lake Baikal is renowned for being some of the clearest in the world. When the lake freezes during the winter, an amazing phenomena takes place: large shards of transparent ice form on the surface of the lake, giving the amazing appearance of turquoise ice.
Tours are provided year around at Lake Baikal and if you're willing to brave subzero temperatures in a wet suit, you can experience the turquoise ice from below:

As she told Greta Van Susteren in 2010: "I started touring in Brazil when I was 18 years old and that's how I picked up the language really quickly, Portuguese, in two months, yes. English, I had an American boyfriend once, and that helps. And working in the studio. And Italian, just by going back to Italy and meeting all the people and diving in the pool of language."

Although it never made it as a permanent part of the police force, this Harley Davidson mobile booking cage in the 1920’s certainly proved a great a talking point.

WildCat is a four-legged robot being developed to run fast on all types of terrain. So far WildCat has run at about 16 mph on flat terrain using bounding and galloping gaits. The video shows WildCat's best performance so far. WildCat is being developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from DARPA's M3 program. For more information about WIldCat visit www.BostonDynamics.com.

In recent years, astronomers have discovered a host of strange worlds--they discovered a planet that has a year that is only 4 Earth-hours long, and another that seems to be made almost entirely of diamond. Now, we have another strange planet to add to this list: Gliese 1214 b. This alien planet is nearly six times the size of the Earth, which means that the planet finds itself somewhere between the Earth and our solar system's ice giants (Uranus and Neptune) in size. What's more, it is covered with a water-rich atmosphere. That sounds promising, doesn't it? At first glance, maybe. It is a huge planet with an abundance of water; however, this planet seems to include a strange "plasma form" of water.
Ultimately, it is the high temperature and density of the planet that gives it an atmosphere that is so dramatically different from the atmosphere found on Earth. For starters, Gliese 1214 b orbits its star once every 38 hours, making it 70 times closer than Earth is to the Sun. Since it is so close, the temperatures on the planet reach up to 540 degrees Fahrenheit (280 degrees Celsius), which is a little warm for most all Earth-based life.
The size of the planet is the next thing that contributes to the exotic form of water. Principle investigator Norio Narita notes that, "as the temperature and pressure are so high, water is not in a usual form (vapor, liquid, or solid), but in an ionic or plasma form at the bottom the atmosphere -- namely the interior -- of Gliese 1214 b ... At high pressure and high temperature, the behavior of water is quite different from that on the Earth. At the bottom of the water-rich atmosphere of Gliese 1214 b, water should be a super-critical fluid."
A supercritical fluid is defined as any substance that exists at a temperature and pressure above its critical point (where distinct liquid and gas phases do not exist). Ultimately, this is just another reminder of how strange and amazing our universe is.
