We visited Hass Pumps, in Lara – a fantastic looking factory. During our time there, we spoke to owner Jason Hassett, who let us fly around with the drone (and even fly inside the building!).
Take a look at the video & photos below:
This Racehorse Filly has A Huge Following – Because of Her Looks.
Japanese racehorse Buchiko has developed a huge following with fans all over the world – but not because of how she’s been performing as a racehorse. Her popularity comes down to her unique and rare coat.
Buchiko has an interesting heritage: her father is American hall-of-famer Sunday Silence and her mother is the completely-white Shiryukihime (which means snow white). Despite both horses having had successful racing careers, it’s their offspring’s coat that is drawing attention worldwide.
‘Buchiko’ is a Japanese name that means ‘dappled child’ – a reference to the patterns that have made her famous. The spotted coat that has inspired so much adoration is a rare genetic result of her parents. When Buchiko races, she is recorded as a ‘white’ horse but her gaining popular suggestions she much more than that.

1. The NASA Vehicle Assembly Building.
The doors of the building alone are 139 metres tall and allow entire spaceships to be built under cover.
2. The Meyer Werft Dockhalle 2.
Used to build cruise ships, this enormous space looks like it could fit an entire city inside it.
