  • "A Red Car for the Red Planet," wrote SpaceX CEO Elon Musk as he debuted photographs of his midnight cherry-red Tesla Roadster sports car loaded in the payload shroud of a Falcon Heavy rocket on December 22, 2017. This first test flight of the company's heavy-lift rocket is scheduled to lift off this month from Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. Photo: VCG

  • The close-up shots were taken during a NASA space probe and capture swirling clouds in Jupiter’s northern hemisphere. The images were captured from a distance of 11,747 miles - the same distance between New York and Perth in Australia. They were taken by NASA’s Juno space probe which has been orbiting Jupiter since July 4, 2016, after being launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Photo: VCG

  • This handout photo released by the European Southern Observatory on November 20, 2017 shows an artist's impression of the first interstellar asteroid: Oumuamua. This unique object was discovered on October 19, 2017 by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii. Subsequent observations from ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile and other observatories around the world show that it was travelling through space for millions of years before its chance encounter with our star system. Oumuamua seems to be a dark red, highly-elongated metallic or rocky object, about 400 metres long, and is unlike anything normally found in the Solar System. Photo: VCG

  • French diver Guillaume Nery uses the first submarine autonomous drone called "iBubble" on December 21, 2017 in order to run some tests during a diving in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Nice, southern France. Photo: VCG

  • A picture taken on November 20, 2017 at the GIPSA-lab at the CNRS of Grenoble shows a researcher using a Brain-Computer-Interface helmet "Brain Invaders," which enables the researcher to select symbols without any motor commands. The headset detects the signals of the brain with electrodes placed on the scalp. Photo: VCG

  • A stand host demonstrates a robotic prosthetic arm developed by UK startup Open Bionics mimicking his finger movements at the CUBE Tech Fair for startups on May 11, 2017 in Berlin, Germany. Photo: VCG
