Pluto’s brilliant ‘heart’

This high-resolution image captured by NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft combines blue, red and infrared images taken by the Ralph/Multispectral Visual Imaging Camera (MVIC). Pluto’s surface shows a remarkable range of subtle colors, enhanced in this view to a rainbow of pale blues, yellows, oranges, and deep reds. The bright expanse is the western lobe of the “heart,” informally known as Tombaugh Regio. The lobe, informally called Sputnik Planum, has been found to be rich in nitrogen, carbon monoxide, and methane ices.

The Motomitragliatrice Blindata d'Assalto “Mias„ .

A curious piece of Italian engineering, the “Motomitragliatrice blindata d'assalto” (“Motorised Armoured Assault Machine Gun”) was apparently designed  in 1935 by the Ansaldo company, a national producer of equipment and guns for the Italian Royal Army.

Weighing a total of 470 Kg, its armour could protect the operator against all small arms´ fire, including 7.92mm Mauser (if shot from a distance greater than 50 metres). A tiny Frera 250 cc engine was to provide traction with a top speed of 4.9 Km/H, and a virtual autonomy of 100 Km.

The “Mias” could be fitted with either 2 twin-mounted Scotti 6.5mm Machine Guns or a Brixia 45mm Cannon.

The project never got past the prototype stage.
