    A skier sounded the alert after posting the photo taken at Formigal in northeastern Spain on a popular website with the message: “Strange animal spotted in Formigal. What the hell is this?.” The picture, retweeted thousands of times, sparked a search by ski resort owners Aramon and a frenzied debate over whether a Spanish Yeti was on the loose or if it was a bear, Photoshop montage or even a soldier wearing mountain camouflage. The mystery remained unsolved last night, although skiers were being reassured there was no cause for alarm.

  • Why didn't I get a say in my husband's right to die?

    I seem to have blocked out whole chunks of those final days. I recall our last meal, with Champagne and laughter. Helping him dress the next day, with Simon insisting on his cufflinks being just so. A morning where most of us picked at toast like hens, while he ate a cooked breakfast with gusto. At the clinic, we gathered round as he played a last message to me, recorded on his mobile phone - and then fell asleep. A giant full-stop. Simon’s death was not traumatic, but everything else was. The travel to Switzerland, the last goodbyes, the paperwork, the legal worries, the campaigners on each side claiming the moral high ground. I would still have preferred him not to go. There is a beauty in

  • This tent has a shocking secret that could keep you alive in a storm

    Thunderstorms are beautiful when you are inside a sheltered area, but the experience can be terrifying when you are outside, especially if you are in an open area. To help outdoor enthusiasts find safety during a sudden storm, industrial design student Kama Jania from Finland’s Aalto University has created a new line of lightning-proof tents that were featured recently in Designboom. The new “Bolt” tent looks like any other tent you would see on the trail or at a campsite, but it has an internal design that separates it from your typical store-bought shelter. The aluminum poles can withstand up to 200 kiloamperes and are intended to route a direct lightning hit away from the people seeking refuge in the tent. An added waterproof groundsheet protects the occupant from ground-based step voltages, which occurs when the current from a lightning bolt radiates through the ground following a strike. Related: Beat the freeze with these gadgets and gear for winter camping Working with Professor Michał Kracik Ph.D. and physicists Konrad Sobolewski and Aleksander Bogucki, Jania tested the Bolt tents using both high voltage and high current generators. In the high-voltage tests, the tent was subjected to discharges produced by an impulse voltage generator. A simulated tourist head was placed inside the tent to measure the voltage that reached the occupant. While the high-voltage test measured occupant exposure, the current generator test was used to determine the tent’s durability. In these tests, a series of electrical discharges with various peak current values were aimed at the tent’s poles. The tents passed the testing phase with only minor scorching on the poles and some melting observed on the tent stakes due to the high temperatures from the simulated lightning strikes. As conceptualized, the Bolt has three different designs based on the size of the shelter needed for hiking or camping. The largest tent is the Bolt Half (1.2 kg/2.65 lb), a half-tent suitable for multi-day trips in areas with ledges or ridges. The Bolt One is a single-person tent that is roomy enough for overnight camping while the Bolt Air is an ultra lightweight pneumatic shelter for day trips where an overnight stay is not expected. Each tent is made of a waterproof and breathable fabric with a frame that is easy to setup. Like most tents, the outer skin uses clips to attach to an aluminum pole frame that almost self-assembles due to its unique pole locking mechanism. An added window and a spacious entrance add a bit of comfort the portable abodes. Related: Cozy up next to your neighbor with the pod tent Unfortunately, Jania has no plans to manufacture the lightning-proof tents and instead is looking for a commercial partner to carry on the idea. The innovative grad student also is working on other outdoor-related projects, including a water collector that gathers water from different atmospheric heights.
