The Week in Pictures: Atomic movies to galactic storms

Google pushes Glass into the wild, Virgin shows off rockets for commercial space travel, and we see the tiniest movie ever made.

There were gigantic storms on Saturn, 3D printed ears, and Google's new heads-up, augmented reality interface , Glass, which is expected to make it's way to public availability next year. Being made available in limited release, it's decidedly very geeky , and a little weird.

Virgin Galactic reached an important milestone when the commercial passenger space plane detached from its dual-hull mothership, WhiteKnightTwo, at an altitude of 47,000 and fired its rocket engine during flight for the first time at Mojave Air and Space Port in California.

The MorePhone flexible display curl's up when a call comes in, and IBM made the world's tiniest stop-motion animated film -- built from atoms.
