Denis Shiryaev is back at it again, and this time, he’s upscaled and colorized “A Trip Down Market Street” in San Francisco on April 14, 1906 using AI-powered neural networks. What you may not know is that this shoot happened four days before the tragic San Francisco earthquake and fire, which destroyed over 80% of the city of San Francisco.

Second Lieutenant Hubert Rochereau, who fought in a Dragoons cavalry regiment in World War I, perished in the village of Loker, Flanders, on April 26, 1918. His parents were so heartbroken that they blocked the entrance to his room so it would remain a pristine shrine to his memory. It was opened by the home’s new owners, who may one day turn it into a museum. Read more for a video tour and additional information.

Incredible photos have surfaced online of the red tide and beautiful bioluminescence phenomenon in San Diego. This mesmerizing blue and neon glow of the tide is created by algae blooms, or better known as red tides, that are filled with phytoplankton called “dinoflagellates.” These tiny organisms react with bioluminescence when ruffled by the moving water.

Photographer Mathieu Stern has created unique camera lenses in the past, but this one just might be the strangest. That’s right, he created a functional lens using the most precious commodity during the covid-19 crisis – toilet paper, and he’s even taken a few sample shots to prove that it actually works.

Human eyes can see only a small portion of the range of radiation given off by the objects around us, or in other words, the wide array of radiation the electromagnetic spectrum, and the part we can see visible light. The Hubble Space Telescope captured this image of the Eagle Nebula’s Pillars of Creation. Read more for a video and additional information.

NASA’s Juno spacecraft captured this incredible photograph of Jupiter’s tumultuous northern regions during the spacecraft’s close approach to the planet on Feb. 17, 2020. What stands out are the long, thin bands that run through the center of the image from top to bottom. Juno has observed these phenomenon since its first close pass by Jupiter in 2016 and are basically layers of haze particles that float above the underlying cloud features.

Back in 2017, the Bugatti Chiron managed to accelerate from 0-249 mph and then to a complete stop in a mere 41.96 seconds, setting a new speed record at the time. If you’ve ever wondered how they managed to capture this record-setting run, this video should explain things. It was directed by Al Clark, a specialist automotive film director, and yes, they had to use another Chiron. Read more for two videos and additional information.

When you think of humans and robots commingling, it’s usually from a more apocalyptic or dystopian view, but rarely do we consider the possibility of both existing harmoniously in the humdrum of everyday life. Digital photographer Nicolas Bigot from Brittany, France wants to show us what the latter would look like in his “The Robot Next Door Project” series.

Denis Shiryaev is back again with another AI-upscaled video, and this time, it’s of laborers in Victorian England from 1901. Neural networks were used to upscale this footage from the dawn of film taken by Mitchell and Kenyon in North England. You’ll see how life took its toll on the people back then, and the grittier nature of their work in those days. Read moore for the video and additional information.
