Madagascar Chameleon
In Erpétologie générale …(General herpetology…), the first comprehensive account of all amphibians and reptiles then described by scientists, organized by French zoologist André-Marie-Constant Duméril (1774-1860), dead and sometimes poorly preserved museum specimens appear in remarkably lifelike postures. This illustration depicts the Madagascar warty chameleon (Furcifer verrucosus).

Today’s peek into the archives shows the arrival of the Willamette Meteorite to the Museum in 1906. 

Weighing 15.5 tons, this iron meteorite is the largest ever found in the United States and the sixth-largest in the world. The smooth surface melted during its blazing entry into the atmosphere, while the pits formed on the Earth’s surface.

The Willamette Meteorite was originally located within the Upper Willamette Valley of Oregon. It was revered as a spiritual being that has healed and empowered the people of the valley by the Clackamas Indians who occupied the region.

Astronomers have long pondered the origins of enormous elliptical galaxies in the young Universe. An object 11 billion light-years away spotted by the Herschel mission may help unravel the mystery. 
Two massive spiral galaxies merged to create a giant elliptical galaxy, which were previously believed to form through the absorption of dwarf galaxies over time.

Y esto seria algo así como “Las peleas del siglo segunda parte”. 
Acá la primera parte.

Pero fuera de broma, en la primera batalla, en mi opinión Tony Jaa y Jet Li ya desequilibran la balanza (y eso sin mencionar al Drunken Master), ellos solos matan a todos los demás y ni se cansan, bueno ok, se cansan un poco.
