This object was originally an offering to the god Osiris and has been in the museum for 80-years. Up until a few weeks ago, the statue had appeared to be stationary. Curator Campbell Price said: "I noticed one day that it had turned around. I thought it was strange because it is in a case and I am the only one who has a key."

Earthflow Phenomenon Russia

In Russia, land slides you, or at least that's what internet meme experts have been saying. One thing's for sure, many would start running immediately at the sigh of soil and rubble creeping towards them as if it had a life of its own. A Russian YouTube user managed to capture this bizarre earthflow phenomenon, a rare type of landslide, on video. Technically speaking, it's a viscous flow of fine-grained materials, such as clay / sand / silt that have been saturated with water and moves downhill due to the pull of gravity. As it runs down a slope, the earthflow remains covered with any vegetation and typically leaves a bowl-shaped depression behind. Continue reading for the video and more information.

Filmed Heavens

TSO Photography climbed the highest mountain in Spain, El Teide, to captured this mind-boggling footage. It took him approximately 7-days to film, during which he only slept 10 hours. People claim Teide Observatory is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars. TSO says: "Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way. So if you ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm, look at 00:32."
