Top 10 Coolest Submarines

Not even James Bond would scoff at the beautiful Hyper-Sub. After all, how could he not want to step foot onto a $3.5 million submersible powerboat? This craft designed by Marion HSPD, will finally be heading to the production line. Of course $3.5 million may be a tough price tag to cope with, but you're getting a rather powerful little toy in exchange.

On the powerboat side, it's a heavy-duty, 31-ft. surface-cruiser with an enclosed cabin. Powered by twin 440 hp inboard diesels for a total output of 880 hp, the Hyper-Sub has a maximum surface speed of 40 knots and a maximum surface range of 500 miles. In dive mode the Hyper-Sub can plunge up to 250 feet, and offers umbilical SCUBA support.

Astronomers the world over will be beside themselves with glee with the news that the latest stage in the development plan of the world’s largest telescope – the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) – was given the green light over the weekend.

The project’s backers described the permission, given by the Hawaiian Board of Land and Natural Resources (BLNR), as “another important step forward for the future of astronomical discovery and economic opportunity on Hawaii Island.”

The next-generation observatory, set to be built close to the summit of the dormant 4,205-meter (13,796-ft) Mauna Kea volcano at a cost of $1 billion, will be the most advanced telescope on the planet, able to observe light and objects from some 13 billions years ago, encompassing the early years of the universe.
