NASA has shown a unique picture of the Milky Way

The picture shows the radiation of young hot stars, generating a cloud of gas.

NASA announced on its website a unique picture of the Milky Way galaxy, composed of photographs taken by different space observatories. The picture shows the radiation of young hot stars, generating a cloud of cold gas.

It is reported that the picture was taken by arranging the X-ray images taken by different observatories. This purple color Chandra Observatory captured and ROSAT, and orange – Spitzer telescope.

As for blue, this optical data UKIRT Infrared Telescope.

NASA notes that the picture shows the area named by scientists as NGC 6357. It is located at a distance of about 5500 light years from Earth.

This region is called a “cluster of clusters”, since it has several groups of young, bright and massive stars. The word “cluster” experts indicate accumulation of heavenly bodies.

1. The Royal Tower
Royal Tower, exceeding the highest building in the world, Burj Khalifa in the United Arab Emirates by 167 meters, is being built in Saudi Arabia and will be the first building in the world, whose height is nearing kilometers.

In the project for $ 1.2 billion, which is located in Jeddah, will house luxury condominiums, office space, observatory, hotel «Four Seasons» and the world’s highest terrace on the 157th floor (rather more Far from the top of the building, by the way). The construction of the skyscraper was officially launched last year, and the building should be completed in 2019, the year.

2. Shanghai Tower
Construction of the 121-story Shanghai Tower in China, worth $ 4.2 billion, started in 1993, the year ended at the beginning of this year, and now are finishing work. Now it is the second tallest building in the world, but the official opening will be in 2015, the year.

Nevertheless, millions of people have seen a picture that opens from the top, thanks to the vertiginous images and video made by two Russian daredevils illegally climb to the summit last year, and became viral on the Internet.

Multifunctional skyscraper consists of nine different vertical zones and is surrounded by a layer of transparent glass cover to protect against weather conditions and natural ventilation.
3. Dubai Pearl
In the design of artificial islands in the shape of parts of the world’s largest shopping center, known to man, and, of course, the tallest building in the world, someone decided that Dubai should be an iconic building, similar to a conventional house, sinister legs apart.

Construction of 73-storey Dubai Pearl with views of the Persian Gulf started in the year 2009 and should be completed in 2016. The planned “inner city” will be four towers, connected by a bridge of heaven, and premium theater for 1,800 seats, which will be the Dubai International Film Festival.

4. Agora Garden
Already in 2016, the Agora Garden in Taipei, the building in the form of a double helix, will be a compromise between the creations of Mother Nature and man. A tortuous 20-story luxury building will be green in every sense of the word: balconies on each floor will maintain the gardens, as well as provide embedded support systems, including solar panels and rainwater recycling.

5. World One
When construction is completed next year, 117-storey World One skyscraper will be the tallest residential house on the planet and, of course, the tallest building in Mumbai, almost twice the 61-storey Imperial Tower, now having the last title.

World One will be home to some of the wealthiest residents of Mumbai and will include 300 luxury three- and four-room apartments (cost starts at $ 1.5 million) with the design of the studio «Armani / Casa» Giorgio Armani. Funny, but World One can not long retain the title of the tallest building in Mumbai, India’s under construction since the tower will have 126 floors.
6. Center for study and research of oil King Abdullah (KARSARC)
Located closest of all this list to the ground, but no less magnificent KARSARC in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, is more like a villain lair of stories about James Bond than a multinational non-profit center.

Crystal-futuristic design – the brainchild of the iconic architect of Iraqi origin Zaha Hadid, who took as a basis for design of interlocking hexagonal cells. Construction of the project began in the year 2009, and only the steel frame was completed at the moment, so it is not yet clear when the object is opened.

7. Zhongnan center in Suzhou
Only recently in Suzhou, China, 730-meter 138-storey center construction began, and it there is still a long, a very long way. But if you pointed a project worth $ 4.5 billion will be completed on schedule in 2020, the year it will be the tallest building in China and the third tallest building in the world.

Tower hotel, offices and residential premises will be located with a nearly completed 69-storey skyscraper East Gate, which, as noted repeatedly, like a great pair of pants.

8. Lotte World Tower
Significantly higher than all other buildings in Seoul, South Korea, the skyline soar 556-meter 123-storey skyscraper Lotte World Tower, when it will be completed in 2016, the year.

Top “tasteless” delicacies of the world

Often it happens that many of the “delicious” World delicacies actually are tasteless. Here is a selection of “tasteless” delicacies of the world.
century egg
Fortunately, this dish is prepared still not one hundred years, and a few months, but he did not appeal it adds. It is impossible to imagine not that the taste of this dish – probably the most difficult people to move even its smell. Indeed, in the “cooking process” yolk duck, chicken or quail eggs becomes repulsive dark green color and a creamy consistency, and the protein is stained brown, becoming translucent as amber. Needless egg exudes the smell of ammonia and sulfur.

To prepare century egg, you will need a mixture of alkaline clay, wood ash, burnt lime and sea salt. Using rubber gloves, cover the mixture, each egg, and then roll it in the rice husk. Place the eggs in a closed or dense tissue banks baskets and keep for several months until, until the mixture is completely cured. After that – voila! – The eggs are ready. It remains only to clean.

It is believed that this way of cooking eggs appeared in connection with the necessity of storage, about 600 years ago in Hunan Province during the reign of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1662 years).
bird’s-nest
Do not be surprised, and the Chinese eat this, and the high prices. Edible bird’s nest is considered one of the most expensive animal products, and they are in Asian countries to an average of $ 2,500 per kilo! Builders nests are, first and foremost, and swifts Aerodramus fuciphagus Aerodramus maximus, which make them from their own saliva.

The latter is rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium and iron, so good tool nests are considered to improve digestion, enhance libido and concentration, as well as beneficial effects on the human immune system in general. The most expensive red jacks worth 10 thousand. Dollars per kilogram, were collected only in the limestone caves in Thailand. Nests are eaten in China for more than 400 years, they are likely to add to the soup, but also prepared with rice, egg pie and other desserts.
Black Ivory
This type of coffee. And he came to our list because of “ready” … in the stomach of an elephant. First, the animals eat berries Arabian coffee, which, once in the elephant’s stomach, are broken down under the influence of gastric acid. All this gives the future of coffee “specific taste”. After 15-17 hours the berries go along with fecal matter that are collected, cleaned and sold.

It should be noted that a variety of coffee “black ivory” is one of the most expensive in the world, the price per kilogram on average $ 1,100. It makes his one and only Thai company – Black Ivory Coffee Company Ltd., and in the “production” of drink involved twenty elephants. Among other things, due to its high cost and the fact that of the 33 kilograms of coffee berries get only 1 kilo of “black ivory”, as most berries milled elephants and feces themselves it is very difficult to find in the grass.
Casu Marzu
It is not known what is worse: to sip a cup of coffee “from under the elephant” or eat a piece of cheese with live fly larvae. Of course, the creators of traditional Sardinian cheese Casu Marzu Gabbas Giovanni and Andrew Zimmern would be considered an insult for such a comparison. The taste of its cheese they call “very ammoniated” because getting into the mouth, it burns the tongue, and the aftertaste of it is kept up to several hours. But memories of a meal left, probably for life.

Prepare the cheese as follows: first remove part of the crust with sheep cheese – cheese to fly could put his eggs, and hatched larvae easily done moves into cheese, then just wait until the cheese is “soaked” acid from the digestive system of larvae. By the time the readiness of cheese – larvae in it will be a thousand – it will start to “cry”: delicacy begins to flow from the liquid, which is called lagrima (Latin for “tear”).

Sami larvae are of worms translucent about 8 mm in length which are capable … jump. For example, if they are disturbed by cutting off a piece of cheese, they can jump a distance of up to 15 sm. Some eat Casu Marzu, pre-clearing it from the larvae (not so clear, however, how to choose them, because they are simply teeming with cheese!), And some eat right along with them, eating with the red wine and soaked Sardinian cake.

In a similar technology prepared and other European varieties of cheese, such as cheese Milbenkäse German and French cheese Mimolette, which produce cheese using mites live.
virgin boy egg
Another traditional “delicacy” of the Chinese people (Zhejiang Province) – the eggs boiled in the urine of boys who have not attained puberty (before the age of 10 years). It is said that the virgin boy egg producers take it – oh, Gods! – In the toilets of local schools, then soaked and boiled eggs in it. After the shell will crack, Bates fire and cont
