Continuing the Apple theme running through June's photo stories, the Mac maker last month took the wraps off plans for a new campus.
The proposed headquarters, which has been compared to a flying saucer, will play host to 12,000 Apple employees and be situated in the company's home of Cupertino.
For a closer look at the HQ, see Space base - Apple's new HQ comes with a sci-fi flavour.

Acoustic chamber at Estec's test centre
From Apple's flying saucer to actual space exploration, silicon.com's sister site CNET went to take a look at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (Estec).
Pictured above is the acoustic chamber at Estec's test centre. It is employed to reproduce the noise made by rockets in order to evaluate whether satellites or other space-bound specimen can survive the intense sounds of a launch.
For a closer look at Estec's space research, see It really is rocket science inside the European Space Agency's test centre.

The Tunny machine at the National Museum of Computing
From space travel to time travel. In June, we took a look at the work of computing enthusiasts who have rebuilt a machine that helped crack the codes used by the Nazi high command during World War II.
This is a close-up of the Tunny machine, which is housed at the National Museum of Computing in Buckinghamshire.
