Zooming in on the centre of the Milky Way.

We zoom in towards the crowded central region, in the constellation of Sagittarius (The Archer). By shifting to an infrared red view we see through the dusty clouds in this direction and get a close up view of the objects orbiting the supermassive black hole that lies at the centre of the Milky Way. The final views show the motion of a newly-discovered gas cloud that is falling rapidly towards the central black hole.

Lynton To Lynmouth Cliff Railway

This railway goes up and down a mountain in England, but it does not have a motor. Instead, each car has a 700 gallon tank of water, and the two cars are connected by a cable. At the top, the car that will be going down fills up its tank. As it falls, it pulls the other car up. At the bottom, it empties its tank so the other car can pull it up.
