Mega-canyon discovered beneath Greenland ice sheet A previously unknown canyon hidden beneath two kilometers of ice covering Greenland has been discovered by a group of scientists, led by a team from the University of Bristol.

Miegakure: A puzzle-platforming game in four dimensions Miegakure is a platform game where you navigate a four-dimensional world to perform miraculous feats and solve puzzles. Miegakure is a puzzle-platforming game that lets you explore and interact with a four-dimensional world.
