Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych210,695It's been a pretty disappointing year for some of us, celestial sights wise. There have been the usual meteor showers (it was cloudy for me every time), the transit of Venus (also cloudy) and several eclipses (none were visible from my area).Luckily, we still have the Geminids left. They're generally considered to be one of the best and most reliable meteor showers of the year, so hopefully we'll get a good show.They will appear to radiate from the constellation of Gemini, and you could spot up to 120 meteors per hour. The moon will be new meaning that visibility should be very good.Although Dec 13th-14th is the peak, meteors will be visible for several days before and after that so don't forget to look up this week.As usual, if you get any good photographs/videos please send them our way!Geminid Meteor Shower2012-12-14 00:00:00168G+

Supported by a team of experts, Felix will ascend in a helium balloon to an altitude of 120,000 ft / 36,576 m where he will take a leap of faith into the unknown in an attempt to become the first person to break the speed of sound during freefall.To follow the progress of this mission - launch date set for the week of 8th October 2012 - and to find out where and when to tune in to watch Red Bull Stratos rewrite history live please RSVP and join the Event. #science   #redbull   #stratos   #sciencesunday   #spacesunday   #skydiving  +ScienceSunday +Part-Time Scientists +Peter's Scifi page +Red BullRed Bull Stratos Mission - LIVE2012-10-14 14:00:00673G+
Trever McGhee61,868Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system!This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know.Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know.I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way,The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it.My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you.I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true.Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later.Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish.They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event.It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters.Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true.Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart.Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life...*****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOUIn my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with.So today I Celebrate being 44 aUpdate to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00205G+

Love me love my microbiome : Some researchers are now considering the microbiome as a separate organ.  What is the microbiome really? The human microbiome is the is the sum total of microorganisms, that resides in the skin, saliva, GI tract, in fact all over and inside the body. They include bacteria, fungi, and archaea. Some of these organisms perform tasks that are useful for us. However, the majority have been too poorly researched for us to understand the role they play.

How does it all work? : We used to think our relationship with bacteria was simple; there were good ones that kept our digestive tracts healthy and there were bad ones that made us sick. We now know that many bacteria can play both roles, living happily in us or on us as part of a healthy microbiome, but capable of turning nasty under certain conditions.

How to attract a Jaguar to a camera trap : Apparently all you have to do is use Obsession for Men by Calvin Klein around the camera and wait for the magic. Jaguars are largely solitary animals and  is often described as nocturnal, but is more specifically crepuscular (peak activity around dawn and dusk). It's solitary and elusive nature makes it a hard animal to study, especially since sighting it is so difficult.

Article extract: According to Miguel Ordeñana a biologist from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles you spray a men's cologne — that's right Calvin Klein Obsession for Men on a tree branch near the centre of your camera's field of view. This odd preference was discovered by a researcher at the Bronx Zoo in New York who tried a whole bunch of different scents and found that the jaguars really, really liked Obsession.

Why? Well we'renot... more »

Nanoprobes as explorers and more : Getting to asteroids is an expensive business, especially the cost per weight in sending anything out of earth's orbit is around $1 million for every kilogram. Space agencies and researchers are always looking for cheaper, more efficient ways to explore asteroids. One such proposal caught my eye. Especially since it involves the Nano world.

Visiting Asteroids With Fleets of Nanoprobes : The proposal, known as the Swarm Flyby Gravimetry, was recently awarded a Phase I grant in the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program. The goal of the swarm is to create a cheap, fast way to study asteroids by using dozens of microprobes that would scatter around an object in space. A larger probe would gather all the measurements of their movements around the asteroid and combine them into a more complete picture. (Nanoprobes need to be small and... more »

DARPA funds development of space plane for cheaper, faster satellite launches : The cost of putting up satellites in space is huge - not only from a viewpoint of the money involved, but also the effort and fuel expended. Spaceplaces and air-to-space launches are one way to go. This effort from DARPA has been some time in coming, especially since the X-37B has already completed multiple missions. Maybe we can look at dynamic soaring / laser propulsion next?

Article extract: The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is looking for a way to reduce the cost and scheduling constraints that affect satellite launches. This week, DARPA announced the kickoff of the Experimental Spaceplane (XS-1) program, an unmanned reusable hypersonic vehicle that would carry a disposable second stage into suborbital space, launch it, and glide back to Earth—and be ready to be relaunched the next day.

Dinosaurs and Dragons : This is not a new discovery, but the similarity to mythical dragons is striking. And no, humans and dinosaurs did not walk the Earth at the same time. Though dinosaur fossils may well have been unearthed or found by some of our ancestors. Just found this very interesting, and it had the geek in me giggling ;)

Article extract: "Dragons Unearthed," features a 66-million-year-old,  dinosaur called Dracorex Hogwartsia. There’s no denying that Dracorex’s long muzzle and spiky horns conjure up visions of a magical beast, but the museum needed an expert to confirm that it wasn’t a coincidence that Dracorex looked more like a dragon than a dinosaur. Dracorex is named Dracorex hogwartsia in honor of children’s author J.K. Rowling. “The shape of the dinosaur’s skull, with its long muzzle, bizarre knobs and horns, surprised the scientists,” she said.“But the skull... more »

Calling All Geeks: Can I borrow five bucks? =)
TLDR: http://bit.ly/btckiva .

First off I want to apologize if this comes across as being spammy. I don't generally post things here that are self promotional but in this case I hope you'll all forgive me!

As some of you know, I quit my full time gig over a year ago to start my own business; a worker-owned tech support cooperative based in Somerville, MA called +Boston TechCollective. It's been a hell of a ride and I love not only what I do but my co-owners are some of the best people I've ever worked with!

We've grown considerably in a little over a year and at this point we could really use two people manning the shop and two people doing on-site/remote support. There are only three of us though! As you might imagine, it's stretching us very thin. We've got too much work but note... more »

NovoPulp Bonus Content Spotlight: 'Science Fiction and Science' by +Lacerant Plainer

We give away free bonus content to anyone who joins the NovoPulp mailing list (http://eepurl.com/C_-Qf ).

Lacerant recently donated the short essay 'Science Fiction and Science' sometime after we released the first wave of bonus content. Here is an extract:

"So much of science fiction has now moved to the realm of reality. We already have a real light saber, a real tricorder (well almost), holographic images, and replicators through 3D printing.

T-Minus One Week for the Second Coming of the Apocalypse

I know some of you may not be able to attend. I imagine I will have plenty of time in between now and then to find either a camera, or someone who wants to help take video of this event.

I may have a camera available to use by then. Stay tuned, folks! (Still awaiting confirmation, I'll keep you all informed.)

And I had this crazy dream where I made it to my show, but missed my performance! That's just silly.

And so far, I have a group of friends from work who will be showing up for heckling support. It's going to be exciting!

Again, I am going to be at Rooster T. Feathers, located at:

157 El Camino Real

Cube lightsail: Lightsail cubesat to be launched by Falcon Heavy : In a recent blogpost, +The Planetary Society announced that they would be launching a light sail (or solar sail) in Cubesat form via the +SpaceX Falcon Heavy. Why is this news? This would be the first time a Cubesat would demonstrate controlled solar sailing capability.

In a live webcast, The Planetary Society CEO Bill Nye announced that its long-awaited LightSail solar sail mission will launch to Earth orbit on a SpaceX Falcon Heavy, currently scheduled for an April 2016 liftoff. LightSail-1 and its parent satellite, Prox-1, will be on the same launch vehicle as the U.S. Air Force’s Space Test Program 2 (STP-2) mission. If successful, it will be the first CubeSat to demonstrate controlled solar sailing.

LightSail will go to an orbit about 720 km above Earth, stored inside the Prox-1, which was developed by theG... more »

Flowers made from code : No seriously, this is just beautiful. Daniel Brown makes these brilliant flowers entirely from code.

Article Extract: Digital artist and interaction designer Daniel Brown continues to tweak and evolve his eye-popping series of computer-generated flowers, this time around commissioned by the Art Fund's RENEW program for exhibition at the D'Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum in Dundee, Scotland. The efflorescing clusters of code are, in effect, non-repeating mathematical models, just 1s and 0s colorfully coaxed into roses, orchids, and imaginary floral blooms.

As you can see from Brown's earlier work in the same "Flowers" series—for example, his "Flowers Construction Kit"—the textures and variably focused 3D are both markedly improving over time, and it will be quite extraordinary to see where he might be in another fiveyea... more »

The Luna Ring : I am fascinated by the amazing quality of thought which comes from JAXA. They brought us the Solar Sail and the asteroid-hopping spacecraft. Now this new concept is seriously revolutionary. While other countries are talking about Space-based solar power, JAXA is working overtime to see how it can be brought to reality. While the future of power is almost definitely Space based (in my view) it remains to see how we can harness this. The Science exists, it now remains for us to engineer it. Such a concept will easily be able to fulfill our power needs.

Shimizu Corporation's Luna Ring concept : Japanese construction firm Shimizu Corporation has unveiled a proposal which would see a solar panel array built around the moon’s equator, collecting solar energy to then be sent back to Earth. The project, entitled LUNA RING, could see construction begin as early as20... more »

Rosetta approaches Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko : After a long journey which began on March 2nd, 2004, The Rosetta robotic spacecraft dubbed 'The Comet chaser' has sighted its target. The comet is about 2.5 miles (four km) long and orbits the Sun every six-and-a-half years. The Spacecraft has a piggyback rider.... a lander called Philae which will detach from the Spacecraft in November and land on the Comet. It's been a long journey for Rosetta, but now it is nearly there!

Once at the comet Rosetta will follow it on its journey around the sun, performing extensive studies of the coma and the surface. And in November it will release the Philae lander, which if successful will be the first vehicle ever to land on a comet.

Rosetta will execute a pyramid-shaped orbit around the object, and it will employ the navcams to look for “landmarks” on the surface tound... more »

What is a ferrofluid? : We have been seeing these gifs for some time now... often called 'science gifs' and 'amazing.' But what is the science behind ferrofluids? Ferrofluids are actually ferromagnetic particles (particles which can be magnetized) by means of an external field - often forming permanent magnets. At slightly larger than 15 nanometers, these particles act as domains and individual atoms clump together to display magnetism.

But smaller than 15 nm, the particles do not retain any alignment to an externally applied field. They 'flip' once the external magnetic field is removed. A ferrofluid uses this effect of superparamagnetism and once nano-sized particles of a ferromagnetic material are suspended in a surfactant, you have a fluid which can be easily magnetized and demagnetized.

The Foldscope: A $1 microscope : While looking at optics and diffraction limits, I came upon this amazing idea. It uses origami to create a microscope with a magnification of roughly 2000x! A simple idea which will go a long way to STEM education. The idea is still under testing, but it has generated enough interest to be funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, among others.

The basic principle of using a small spherical lens held close to the eye dates back to Antonie van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723), who was the first to see single-celled organisms using such a lens held in a device of his own design. http://goo.gl/B2Hc9L

Today I learned..... Mortgage literally has its origin in French, which means 'Death Pledge.'

Etymology: From Anglo-Norman mortgage, Middle French mortgage, from Old French mort gage (“death pledge”), after a translation of judicial Medieval Latin mortuum vadium or mortuum wadium, from mortuum + vadium or wadium, of Germanic (Frankish) origin, from a root *waddi, wadja. Compare gage and also wage.

The Phoenix Towers : In a slightly over-the-top idea, China is now looking at creating the world's tallest building. And making it green. The mish-mash of technologies is a little hard to comprehend, but as the architects and project consultants themselves say, it's intentionally made that way. I like the idea that the towers are to be fuchsia pink....

Article Extract: The paired Phoenix towers will be built on an island and combine every sort of green technology, both feasible and far-fetched. Plus, they’ll be bright pink. The Phoenix Towers will be built in China’s 10th-biggest city, Wuhan, which is located in the center of the country. The city is split between the banks of the Yangtze River and riddled with lakes. Given its proximity to moving water, it’s only natural that the towers be built with renewable energy in mind.

What are Plasmons? : Consider a thought experiment. If we have a sheet of metal with holes in it (pic bottom right) and we shine a torch through it, we find that the amount of light which makes it through to the other side depends on the size of the holes. Smaller the holes, less is the light which makes it through. But when the size of the holes is around half the wavelength of light, almost 80% of the light makes it through. This is even though the holes are less than 30% of the metal plate. How is this possible?

Plasmons are surface waves on the metal plate itself : The incident light on the metal plate excites the electron waves on the surface of the plate. The sloshing electrons on the metal plate behave like a fluid and propagates along the metal plates and through it. (See pic top right)

So what is special about plasmons? : They are coupled excitation and also give... more »

Mara's art for sale

So. I have an appointment for a so-called ENS (Empty - Nose Syndrome) specialist somewhere in Germany at the beginning of Semptember, and it's gonna cost me 650ish euros (for medical exams) + Idontknowhowmuch for trip&hotel. Probably around 1000 euros.

I don't have that much handy at the moment (I have so many damn medical expenses...), and I was doubtful whether to  go or not. I talked with +Di Cleverly and she suggested me to make some drawings of Gplus users and sell them.
So... I thought: It's been awhile since I did some art, and it would probably do me good (it would help me not being obsessed with my nose issues all the time).

Space agencies and researchers are always looking for cheaper, more efficient ways to explore asteroids. One such proposal caught my eye. Especially since it involves the Nano world.

Visiting Asteroids With Fleets of Nanoprobes : The proposal, known as the Swarm Flyby Gravimetry, was recently awarded a Phase I grant in the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program. The goal of the swarm is to create a cheap, fast way to study asteroids by using dozens of microprobes that would scatter around an object in space. A larger probe would gather all the measurements of their movements around the asteroid and combine them into a more complete picture. (Nanoprobes need to be small and... more »

Love me love my microbiome : Some researchers are now considering the microbiome as a separate organ.  What is the microbiome really? The human microbiome is the is the sum total of microorganisms, that resides in the skin, saliva, GI tract, in fact all over and inside the body. They include bacteria, fungi, and archaea. Some of these organisms perform tasks that are useful for us. However, the majority have been too poorly researched for us to understand the role they play.

How does it all work? : We used to think our relationship with bacteria was simple; there were good ones that kept our digestive tracts healthy and there were bad ones that made us sick. We now know that many bacteria can play both roles, living happily in us or on us as part of a healthy microbiome, but capable of turning nasty under certain conditions. Now there are claims that a truly villainous bacterium... more »

Infrared Dawn : I have been following the next big story in astronomy, and that is undoubtedly the emergence of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) which is an origami-inspired infrared telescope which will be placed most probably in the Lagrange point (L2) which means after unfolding, the telescope will keep up with the Earth's revolution around the Sun. Why is it exciting? It is like a Hubble on steroids. Astronomers don't even know how much they will learn once the JWST sees first light.

Article Extract: Ball Aerospace had delivered all 18 hexagonal segments of the observatory’s honeycomb-like, 6.5-meter primary mirror, designed to look into a past 13 billion years distant. From an observation platform, you could see one of the mirrors on display in the Spacecraft Systems Development and Integration Facility, the largest clean room in the world.

Why do soap bubbles sometimes appear colored and sometimes appear transparent? : This is an interesting question and leads down many paths. To start to answer this question, we need to understand the nature of a thin film and how light acts on it.

Glass window thought experiment : Imagine for instance you are looking through a window at night. If you shine a torch through the window, you can see a bit of light reflected back. This is because not only does the light pass through the window, it was two reflections - one from the front of the glass sheet, and another through the back of the glass sheet. If the glass sheet is made very very thin, we notice that lesser and lesser reflections are seen. Why is this? The very thin transparent surfaces often display 'destructive interference.' Out of phase wavelengths cancel out. And you get either a colored image or none at all.... more »

Why Hard disk drives need new technology : While reading up on the nanotechnology involved in HDDs, some interesting points came to light. For one, it has been around two years since there has been an increase in the capacity (Areal density) of HDDs. Since the bits which are magnetized to store data are really small, but still larger than nanosized, the boundary between bits is a jagged line.

How does this work? : A Cobalt- Chromium alloy is the material of choice in making a HDD. Since CoCr phase seperates into 'domains' where individual atoms display a residual magnetism. Writer head fields of 15,000 gauss magnetize the fields. The doped CoCr is easy to write.

Why is there a limit? : Write too densely, and bits interact with neighboring bits causing noise (Bits interact which causes fluctuations in their moment).  If you reduce the size of the domains... more »

Smartphone Controlled Paper Airplane : If you thought it was interesting to make paper planes, here is the level up on this habit! Now Poweruptoys comes with this bluetooth smart module which you can hook up to your paper plane and make a drone; which you can control with a twist of your wrist!

From +Popular Science : With an app, a signal receiver and motor, and a piece of paper, it's possible for anyone to make a simple drone in seconds. Thanks to a kit made by PowerUp3.0, the drone steers with a rudder behind the propeller. It's one of the purest "just a toy" drones out there, and it looks like an utter delight to fly.

Fringe Dwellers : Extremophiles have been discovered in the most surprising places on Earth. Now we have even see they can survive in space. Are these interplanetary wanderers which are the precursors to life in the Universe? One can't say for sure, but some of the facts are really interesting and quite exciting....

Article extract: A kind of cyanobacterium (Gloeocapsa), the microbes lived on the outside of the International Space Station  for 18 months, exposed to the vacuum and cold and intense solar radiation of space. It was an extraordinary feat of endurance, suggestive of a life form of exotic and unusual origin: the frigid Antarctic perhaps, or a boiling hot deep-sea fissure. Not so, says Cockell, University of Edinburgh’s professor of astrobiology. These bacteria came from cliffs near a seaside village in England. The question was: would this toughening-up be enough toen... more »

Flowers made from code : No seriously, this is just beautiful. Daniel Brown makes these brilliant flowers entirely from code.

Article Extract: Digital artist and interaction designer Daniel Brown continues to tweak and evolve his eye-popping series of computer-generated flowers, this time around commissioned by the Art Fund's RENEW program for exhibition at the D'Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum in Dundee, Scotland. The efflorescing clusters of code are, in effect, non-repeating mathematical models, just 1s and 0s colorfully coaxed into roses, orchids, and imaginary floral blooms.

As you can see from Brown's earlier work in the same "Flowers" series—for example, his "Flowers Construction Kit"—the textures and variably focused 3D are both markedly improving over time, and it will be quite extraordinary to see where he might be in another fiveyea... more »

Why do we sneeze? : Historically sneezing has been associated with everything from breath to life to omens.... but we know that sneezing works to clear the nasal passages from foreign material..or do we? There is more to the story. Read on...

Article Extract: Everybody sneezes. And that's a good thing, because it's actually one of the body's natural defenses, designed to help get rid of foreign invaders that sneak into your nose and threaten your lungs and other body parts. The medical term for sneezing is sternutation, a rather complex process that includes your brain, nerves, and muscles all over your body. http://goo.gl/WhzNqN

SpaceShipTwo : Has been ticking off the boxes in its testing phase. SpaceShipTwo (SS2) is a suborbital air-launched spaceplane. The mothership is the jet-powered White Knight Two, which will launch it at approx. 50,000 feet. After flight, SS2 glides back to the spaceport and lands like a conventional aircraft. The space tourism bandwagon notwithstanding, what is interesting is the research platform availability.

While the payload pricing is closer to sounding rockets, it's re-usability will bring down the cost of research payloads.

Article Extract: (From Jan) SS2 was lifted by the double-fuselage White Knight Two carrier airplane to a height of 46,000 feet (11.7 km). At that point, SS2 was dropped, and its hybrid rocket engine, capable of delivering a thrust of 60,000 lb (267 kN) for a period of 70 seconds, was fired for 20 seconds, for a top speed in excess of Mach 1.4 and... more »

What are quantum Dots? : While taking a course in Nanotechnology (http://goo.gl/Yo6Cfw), I've been exploring and researching on the nature of nanocrystals. What is nanotechnology? It's all about the size. One nanometer corresponds to 1x10^-9 meters. That is one-billionth of a meter. But the amazing thing is once you go down to that size, the properties of everyday substances changes quite significantly.

Very small crystals (nanocrystals) of semiconductor materials exhibit quantum mechanical properties. Besides other properties, we can specifically notice that when we reduce the size of these materials to 2 to 15 nanometers (Just around 20-50 atoms in diameter), the material which has a characteristic wavelength is now 'quantum confined'. This gives rise different color of light emission under ultraviolet light.

What is quantum confinement? : Silicon has a... more »

Dog people & Cat people : While I found this study while looking for something else, I'm not very sure the methodology is the best. So let me preface this by saying both dogs and cats are great as pets. They do have a beneficial relationship with their humans. Yes they do.

Article Extract: "Dog people" and "cat people" really do have different personalities, according to a new study. People who said they were dog lovers in the study tended to be more lively — meaning they were more energetic and outgoing — and also tended to follow rules closely. Cat lovers, on the other hand, were more introverted, more open-minded and more sensitive than dog lovers. Cat people also tended to be non-conformists, preferring to be expedient rather than follow the rules.

The researchers surveyed 600 college students, asking whether they would identify themselves asdog... more »

Green ideas - Looper River Barge : The Looper is a design for a floating greenhouse. Designed by the firm RTKL, the retrofitted river barge could grab water from a river and filter out clean H2O. That water would then be sent to an area on the barge, where plants and fish and plants would be held.

The Looper challenges the idea of a greenhouse and leverages one very simple concept: the growing of plants inherently cleans an ecosystem. To do this, The Looper repurposes an existing river barge into a greenhouse which collects, uses, filters, and returns water to the river in a remediated state – a loop. At the heart of the vessel is a “living machine” that distributes filtered river water to an aquaponics system growing both plants and fish. As the greenhouse barge moves along the river, it is able to restore water and habitat, serve multiple communities with access to fresh produce,and a... more »

How the Potato changed the world : The article in Smithsonian, traces the story of the Potato,  (Part of the Solanaceae, or nightshade family of flowering plants). Right from the time it was extremely toxic (the same family as the Deadly Nightshade), the Potato is now thought to be responsible for the rise of the European world domination. A beautiful article, and a fascinating story of the rise of the tuber monoculture and the pesticides to contain infestation....

Article Extract: When potato plants bloom, they send up five-lobed flowers that spangle fields like fat purple stars. Today the potato is the fifth most important crop worldwide, but in the 18th century the tuber was a startling novelty, frightening to some, bewildering to others—part of a global ecological convulsion set off by Christopher Columbus.

Many researchers believe that the potato’s arrival in northernEuro... more »

Sharks : While we are aware of their awesome power, there is so much which is not commonly known about sharks. Right from the fact that they have evolved complex methods of detecting their prey's electric fields to the fact that they have cavity proof teeth (since they are covered in fluoride) or that some species can clone themselves (an example of parthenogenesis)... the list goes on and on...

Sharks also have been studied for their secrets... some species when turned upside down go into what is called as tonic state (or tonic immobility), their skeleton is made of cartilage, which is light and flexible, unlike dolphins and whales, they do not need to surface to breathe...and they sleep while swimming.

Article Extract: Sharks are much older than dinosaurs. Their ancestry dates back more than 400 million years, and they are one of evolution’s greatest success stories.T... more »
