Top. Men.
Fifty greatest matte paintings - yeah, it's a list, but it's got some weird and wonderful stuff. And Hitchcock was an absolute master of showing things that weren't there, it turns out.

'Tokamak' - lovely word.
Giant cross-section of ITER tokamak - currently under construction in the south of France.
