    The sun sets behind Space Launch Complex 2 (SLC-2) with the Delta II rocket and the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) observatory protected by the service structure January 27, 2015 at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. SMAP, whose launch is scheduled January 29, is NASA's first Earth-observing satellite designed to collect global observations of surface soil moisture and its freeze/thaw state. SMAP will provide high resolution global measurements of soil moisture from space. The data will be used to enhance scientists' understanding of the processes that link Earth's water, energy, and carbon cycles. (Photo by Bill Ingalls/NASA via Getty Images)

    Five trucks abandoned in 1943 have rusted so much they now blend in with their spectacular surroundings. The selection of old trucks - parked in a row next to each other - have not moved in 73 years. They have now corroded so much that the old motors are even camouflaged in front of the green, orange and yellow backdrop. The vehicles were involved in the building of the Canol Road, which is short for the 'Canadian American Norman Oil Line', in the Yukon Territory in Canada. It is 279 miles long and after its competition the trucks were left on the roadside and have not moved since. Photographer Robert Postma, 43, from Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada, travelled to the road to take the spectacular pictures.(Picture by: Solent News / Splash News)

    Customs and Border Protection in conjuction with British Authorities destroys a Mini Cooper that had many violations related to importation. The legendary Mini Cooper might be good enough for Paul McCartney and Enzo Ferrari but it doesn't impress the Americans with this model crushed - for failing safety rules. Importers shipped the iconic British car into the US with the vehicles fetching a vast markup. They attract a whopping premium because cars under 25 years old manufactured without airbags are banned from American roads. This has created a lucrative black market with the importer of this model attempting to trick customs by illegally altering the car's vehicle identification numbers.(Picture by: SWNS / Splash News)
