Randall Rosenthal born 1947 in NY has become famous creating what appears to be a cardboard box stuffed to the brim with wads of cash. In reality, both the box and the cash are carved out of wood and hand painted to jaw-dropping, lifelike precision by the artist. Though Rosenthal’s portfolio of work also includes wood recreated as newspapers, baseball cards, binders, books and more, it is his sculptures of money that have particularly captured the public’s eye.
"Half the time is spent on carving and half is spent on painting, they’re the exact opposite processes. I start with a block of wood and it’s totally reductive in that I take away wood until I get what I want.
The carving is a high-wire act because there’s no room for error and I don’t plan it out, the painting is the opposite. You can paint on the paint forever, until you get what you like.” (by Katie Kindelan)
Cassini recently celebrated a decade in orbit around Saturn. We have learned more about the complex ring structure and many moons of the ringed gas giant than ever expected.
Keep up the great work Cassini! Be on the lookout for more detailed information on these photos as well as the individual moons.

Singapore’s huge new stadium, SportsHub, just clinched the title for the largest free-spanning dome structure ever built—stretching more than 1,010 feet across at its widest point.
Designed by Arup,AECOM, and DPArchitects, this sprawling development doesn’t just include a 55,000-seat stadium—there’s also a network of pedestrian and cycling trails, infrastructure to hold all manner of games from cricket to rugby, a pool and a water park, a skate park, volleyball courts, space for canoeing and kayaking, a mall, and a huge rock climbing wall.
In short, it’s its own city devoted to sports.
