X-ray images reveal a woman curled up and laying in a mess of bags with one arm draped protectively over (what one can assume to be) her purse. The CCTV recording from People’s Daily also shows her disappearing behind the machine, only to appear from the other end — calm, blase, and relatively unharmed — several seconds later.
The unnamed woman reportedly refused to part with her purse and instead requested to escort it through the baggage x-ray machine herself, high heels, jacket, and all.

Skoda, Volkswagen’s Czech-based brand, is the latest entry in the list. Skoda France claims that it has successfully sent its red Skoda Superb toward “Mars.” The company also released a video of the mission to prove that what it is claiming is 100 percent true.
Last week, SpaceX launched the world’s most powerful Falcon Heavy rocket into space, which carried with it Elon Musk’s personal, cherry-red Tesla Roadster, as well as its dummy driver Starman. The Roadster was originally tasked to go out to the orbit of Mars, but it exceeded its planned trajectory and started traveling slightly beyond the Red Planet’s path. Musk’s car and its driver are currently exploring the Earth’s solar system.

At the moment, scientists have yet to confirm the presence of life on other planets, as aliens are still very much in the realm of science fiction. But many have wondered how humanity will react if, one day, alien life forms make their way to our planet. That was the focus of a pilot study from a team of Arizona State University researchers, whose findings suggest that people will be more likely to welcome extraterrestrial life, rather than attack or avoid such alien beings out of fear.
In a posted on the school’s official website, Arizona State University assistant professor of psychology and study lead Michael Varnum said that mankind “would actually be pretty upbeat” if confronted by alien life. He added that there has been much speculation over the years about how people will react to such a discovery, but thanks to his team’s study, there is now “systematical empirical research” that could predict the nature of these reactions.
