A British woman was attacked in a supermarket on the popular Spanish resort island of Tenerife. Tenerife is the largest and most populous of the seven Canary Islands. According to eyewitnesses, a 28-year-old unemployed Bulgarian man, attacked a 60-year-old British woman with a knife and then fled into the street with the severed head in his hands. The attack occurred without warning and appeared to be random. Security guards from the supermarket chased after the man across the road and pinned him to the ground. The suspect, identified as Deyan Valentinov, was reported to have received psychiatric treatment at a local hospital in February after being involved in previous violent incidents.


Scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have created aerogels made of diamonds. Aerogels are gels where the inner liquid has been replaced with a gas leaving a porous solid matrix that has a very low bulk density. To make the diamond aerogel, scientists constructed a carbon aerogel that was pumped full of neon gas and pressurized using a diamond anvil. Under high pressure, the Aerogel was heated using high-intensity lasers. The high heat and pressure simulated the conditions under which diamonds form naturally within the Earth. The resulting nanocrystalline diamond aerogel is strong, light, completely transparent, and biocompatible.

The location of Atlantis has long been disputed by scholars ever since the naval power was first described by Plato in his work Timaeus and Critias. In January 2010, archaeologists began to search for clues about Atlantis in Spain. They narrowed their search to an area within the Donana national park. A team of researchers from Spain's Higher Council for Scientific study began to examine a marshy area of the parkland to find evidence of a 3,000-year-old settlement called Tartessos that they believed could help pinpoint Atlantis. They believed that Tartessos, a wealthy civilisation in southern Iberia, could be linked to Atlantis.

The large impact-scarred Huygens basin, known for its unusual elongated craters, is about 450 km in diameter and lies in the heavily cratered southern highlands. One of these odd craters, shown above, sits just to the south of the much larger Huygens basin. It is about 78 km in length, opens from just under 10 km wide at one end to 25 km at the other, and reaches a depth of 2 km.
