With four independent wheels mounted on spider-like legs and a suspended hammock-like seat for the driver, this thing can tackle terrain that most vehicles could never even attempt.

Better yet, the all-electric four-wheeler can do all that with none of the smog-generating pollution of traditional off-road vehicles .

Yet, just two miles from the site of the bomb blast, a Japanese white pine bonsai tree that had been tended to every day since 1625 sat against a wall of a nursery—and due to its fortuitous placement, the tree survived even as windows of an adjacent building were blown out. The bonsai was donated without explanation to the National Arboretum in Washington, DC in 1976, only for its story—and astonishing age—to be revealed in 2001.
