On November 26th, a mole will land on Mars

Another great long-form illustration/story by Matthew Inman on NASA's InSights mission that is due to touchdown on Mars in the next few days. This panel in particular tickled me:

The next generation of Lamborghini's will be PHEVs

"Probably around 2021, with the Aventador replacement that will add a motor to its V-12 engine," Domenicali told Automotive News. "The same will happen later also on the V-10 family when we replace the Huracan. A plug-in model is the only way to maintain performance and keep Lamborghini's engine sound while also reducing emissions."

Good to hear, with Porsche, Ferrari, Aston Martin and McLaren already on their hybrid journey it's good to see Lamborghini join them. Considering their owned by Audi who offer electric Golfs, A3s and mild hybrid executive saloons, I'm not sure why this hasn't happened sooner. Mating electric with petrol gives a great performance boost as a minimum and lower emissions is great for everyone.
