20,000 megawatts under the sea: Oceanic steam engines

Jules Verne imagined this limitless power source in Victorian times – now 21st-century engineers say heat trapped in the oceans could provide electricity for the world

At atmospheric pressure, liquid nitrogen boils at °C K; In liquid nitrogen, it's impossible for any creature to survive for long time. But, researches have discovered a special Leech that can survive 24 hours while submerged in liquid nitrogen!

Dung Beetles Watch the Galaxy (That’s How They Roll)

From all across the galaxy, the light of billions of stars finds its way to Earth, passes through our atmosphere, and enters the eyes of a small South African beetle rolling a ball of dung. The beetle’s eyes are not sensitive enough to pick out individual stars but it can see the Milky Way as […]

The Strange, Deadly Effects Mars Would Have on Your Body

The ability of the human body to adapt to the extremes of terrestrial environments was largely irrelevant for Earth orbit and the Moon. Mars, however, presents a challenge of a different scale and character. Life on Earth has evolved over the past three and a half billion years in an unchanging gravitational field. Take gravity away, and our bodies become virtual strangers to us.
