Airbus First Class

The first class cabin of Qantas’s A380 super-jumbos looks astonishingly like the U.S.S. Enterprise in Star Trek – although you’ll have to settle for earthly routes such as London to Sydney and Sydney to Los Angeles. The interior, designed by Marc Newson includes LCD touch panels, leather seating, plants, sheepskin-covered full-length beds and more than 1,000 videos to choose from. ‘At first glance, this may look like the interior of the USS Enterprise, but it’s actually the first class cabin on a Qantas A380, complete with personal suites and centre socializing area,’ writes TechEBlog this week. The central area is provided for flyers to stretch their legs and sit down for a drink. Each berth even has a dresser for storing clothes – naturally, pyjamas are provided.” w/ photos

Cat Survives 2 Euthanasia Attempts

A stray cat that survived two trips to a Utah animal shelter’s gas chamber now has a new home. Officials at West Valley City’s animal shelter in Utah say the cat named Andrea hadn’t been adopted for 30 days when shelter officials tried to put her to death in October. She survived, so they gassed her again. Shelter officials detected no vital signs and presumed she was dead after the second try, so they put her in a plastic bag in a cooler. But when they checked the bag, they saw she had vomited on herself and had hypothermia but was alive. The shelter then decided to stop trying to kill her.” w/ photo
