Connect this mythical symbol to the world of science.
This depiction of a snake biting its own tail and thus completing a circle, known as Ouroboros is what Kekule saw in his dreams and this is what inspired him to come up with the delocalised structure of Benzene. Cracked by one and all.

Everyone guessed the doom connect....
The first pic is of the graph of the usage of the words "Doom clones" against that of the phrase "First person shooters" (FPS's were called doom clones)
And the second one is Bill Gates cashing in on Doom's popularity to promote Win95
Just Connect the three images.
The connect is Donnington Castle, as kaul, vivek and trilok guessed...
The first pic is the castle itself, the second is that of the download festival which happens there every year ("the spiritual home of rock in England, as it is called), and the third is of the race track there
This one is a classic googleable question. 2nd pic is that of gordon moore.
The answer is this
That's Jerry Lee Lewis at the top. The 2nd pic is the movie poster of Great Balls of Fire, where Dennis Quaid portrays Jerry Lee Lewis. The pretty lady in the 3rd pic happens to be Vivien Leigh, whose character Scarlett O'Hara in the classic Gone With The Wind has "Great Balls of Fire!" as one of her famous lines which gets repeated during the course of the movie. And of course, Top Gun, where an uncredited soundtrack was Great Balls of Fire. (The track was later included in the 2000 re-release).
Ergo, the connect: Great Balls of Fire. Good answer Rishabh.
Continuing the tradition of galeej connects. Fairly simple, if you've seen the movie.
Bunty and Babli featured a cameo by Tania Zaetta and the second pic has Mike Whitney on the right. So the connect is Who Dares Wins./tania. all of them got it right
Answer: Fairly easy, its the Manmad Hill, or more popularly called the Thums Up Hill, which is quite self explanatory.
Almost everyone got this one. Kastubh, You're probably right, since Manmad does fall into that region.
Apologies again. :)
Ok. That;s a picture of the Knights who say Ni. Kingfisher Airlines' IATA callsign is "IT". "It" also happens to be the one word the Knights who say Ni cannot bear to hear.
I also wanted to put in a picture of Cousin It from the Addams Family, but then i found out he's not Cousin It, but Cousin Itt.

The Wiki entry on X describes it thus:
X is the name of a class of compounds created from nitrocellulose and camphor, plus dyes and other agents. Generally regarded to be the first thermoplastic, it was first created as Parkesine in 1856 and as Xylonite in 1869 before being registered as X in 1870. X is easily molded and shaped, and it was first widely used as an ivory replacement. X is highly flammable and also easily decomposes, and is no longer widely used. Its most common uses today are the table tennis ball and guitar picks.
