Nadal Beats Federer, Will Go For 12th French Title

Paris (CNN)Rafael Nadal beat Roger Federer 6-3 6-4 6-2 to reach a 12th French Open final and end a five-match losing streak against the Swiss.

Nadal is considered an excellent wind player -- and the record 11-time French Open champion had never lost to Federer at Roland Garros on his favored clay in five previous duels.

He led, for example, 2-0 in the second set, then threatened but couldn't break Nadal at 4-3, and was broken from 40-0 at 4-4.

Are These Aircraft Really Flying So Near The Moon & Sun?

These aircraft look as if they are flying very near the moon and sun. The mind-boggling photographs are a clever perspective trick captured by amateur astronomer & photographer Sebastien Lebrigand, who lives outside Paris. The 45-year-old electrician's backyard position 30kms from Charles de Gaulle Airport allows him to patiently wait for aircraft perfectly line up with the moon & sun. He uses a telescope with his camera to be able to shoot amazing close-ups. A special filter allows him to capture the sun without damaging his eyesight.
