1932 Bauhaus Cabinet Model B 290 | Design: Bruno Weil for Thonet | Germany

This very rare cabinet was designed by Bruno Weil (BèWè), the artistic director of Thonet-Frères in Paris and it was produced by Thonet Germany in Frankenberg. The furniture is unrestored, in original coral color and stunningly beautiful patina. Highly rare and a museum piece. - Via

Cassini RADAR view of Titan’s north pole
This mosaic is composed of all synthetic-aperture-radar maps of Titan’s polar regions acquired by Cassini to date. It has been cropped and reduced in size by 50% from an even larger mosaic available on NASA’s Planetary Photojournal. Approximately 60 percent of Titan’s northern polar region (poleward of 60 degrees north latitude) has been mapped as of October 2007, and of this area, about 14% appears to be covered with hydrocarbon lakes. The radar images are grayscale; they have been colored here with a color map that applies blue colors to the materials that are darkest to the RADAR instrument, and yellow colors to the materials that are brightest. This color scheme highlights the apparent lakes, but also shows that many lake-like features are not as dark as other lakes, and that darker channels appear to run down the interiors of less dark lakes.The image is a polar projection, with zero longitude (the sub-Saturnian hemisphere) toward the bottom. The leading hemisphere (centered at 90 degrees W) is to the left, and the trailing hemisphere (centered at 270 degrees W) is to the right. The largest lakes are clustered in an area on Titan’s trailing hemisphere.
