Chinese company takes on Hollywood A Chinese company has poured US$10.5 million, the bulk of its production budget, into a major Hollywood production, announced the manager of the company on Wednesday, the fifth day of the Shanghai International Film Festival. It was the first time that Qiu Huashun, CEO of Dreams of Dragon Pictures had shone a light on the company's deal to co-produce "Cloud Atlas" together with Hollywood studios. "Cloud Atlas," set for worldwide release on December 6, 2012, is helmed by "The Matrix"'s Wachowski siblings and German director Tom Tykwer. The picture boasts an assembled cast of big names including Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving and Hugh Grant, as well as China's number one actress Zhou Xun. Qiu said that the idea for the project was first brought up by American producer Grant Hill when they met one and half years ago. Tempted though daunted by the proposal, Qiu, after consulting his peers, decided to take the plunge.

Un turista diferente en Canarias Terje Sorgjerd, un noruego apasionado de la fotografía natural ha sido uno más de los miles de turistas que han pasado estas últimas semanas por Tenerife. Estuvo de vacaciones en la isla una semana, del 4 al 11 de abril... Sin embargo hay una gran (gigantesca) diferencia entre él y el resto de la marabunta que se apila en las playas tostándose o achicharrándose en la arena luciendo sus barrigas coloradas de sol y cerveza... Ha sabido capturar otro tipo de recuerdos, ha sabido llegar dónde los guías no llegan y ha vivido la otra faceta, apasionante y desconocida, de las islas Canarias: Su cielo. Llegó en el mismo avión cargado de adolescentes juerguistas, frentes pálidas y colchonetas inflables que el resto de turistas. El cielo nocturno del Teide fue su elección... Y es que Terje tiene clase hasta para elegir la música. Al terminar su semana de vacaciones, Terje Sorgjerd se irá con la memoria impresa de luz cósmica. The Mountain from Terje Sorgjerd on Vimeo.

Une mini arche de Noé pour préparer les vols humains dans l’espace Les capsules Bion datent des années 1970, et ont été conçues par l’Agence spatiale russe pour étudier des êtres vivants en apesanteur. Le programme Bion a été arrêté à la fin des années 1990. Il reprend aujourd’hui avec la capsule modernisée Bion-M1 (première capsule modernisée, d’où la dénomination M1). En cas de succès, d’autres vols sont prévus. © TsSKB Progress Une mini arche de Noé pour préparer les vols humains dans l’espace - 2 Photos La semaine dernière, un lanceur russe Soyouz a lancé sept satellites, dont une capsule de recherche récupérable Bion-M avec à son bord une centaine d’organismes vivants différents, ainsi que des graines de plantes.
