The first time scientists stumbled across this elusive plant was in 1866 - an Italian botanist named Odoardo Beccari, who is known for finding and categorising hundreds of species of plants, came across the flower in the Gunung Matang massif in western Sarawak, Malaysia.

Then, nobody saw it again for more than a century. Watch Stephen Hawking casually explain what existed before the Big Bang. Technique to see objects hidden around corners.

Video: A guide to Raspberry Pi in 60 seconds A student-developer put off by the price of Android Auto head units has released the Linux-based Crankshaft OS that turns a $35 Raspberry Pi 3 with the official $60 Raspberry Pi seven-inch touchscreen into a functioning, unofficial Android Auto head unit. Built by Huan Truong, Crankshaft is based on the recently released OpenAuto project, an aasdk- and Qt-based emulator for running Android Auto on a Raspberry Pi. But whereas OpenAuto requires configuration work, Truong says Crankshaft is a "turnkey GNU/Linux distribution", which only needs to be downloaded and written to an SD card for the Raspberry Pi 3 tablet.

His demo model, spotted by Android Police, uses a suction cup attached to the rear of the Raspberry Pi 3 tablet with Crankshaft displaying apps from a USB-connected Android phone in a larger driver-friendly format. The Raspberry Pi is also connected to the car stereo via a 3.5mm headphone jack. Previous and related coverage. How Wikipedia Chose the Image for the ‘Human’ Entry.

In the 4.4 billion years it took a species capable of space travel to form on Earth, Fermi proposed that the galaxy should have been overrun with intelligent, technologically-advanced aliens. Yet, we have no evidence of this despite decades of searching. This conundrum became known as the Fermi Paradox. Scientists have proposed many theories over the decades, including planetary scientist, Alan Stern, who has the latest idea.
