As if we needed another reason to appreciate how amazing bees are: Artist and beekeeper Ren Ri makes breathtaking sculptures using plastic, salvaged wood, and a swarm of bees.

Well, to be fair, the bees did half the work :)

At TEDxYouth@Manchester, genetics researcher Dan Davis introduces the audience to compatibility genes — key players in our immune system’s functioning, and the reason why it’s so difficult to transplant organs from person to person: one’s compatibility genes must match another’s for a transplant to take.

To learn more about these fascinating genes, watch the whole talk here»

Earth’s upper atmosphere—below freezing, nearly without oxygen, flooded by UV radiation—is no place to live. But last winter, scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology discovered that billions of bacteria actually thrive up there.

Expecting only a smattering of microorganisms, the researchers flew six miles above Earth’s surface in a NASA jet plane. There, they pumped outside air through a filter to collect particles.

Back on the ground, they tallied the organisms, and the count was staggering: 20 percent of what they had assumed to be just dust or other particles was alive. Earth, it seems, is surrounded by a bubble of bacteria.
Now what? Read the whole story over at PopSci…

Anonymous said: Hey friend! Do you happen to know the times of the eclipse on the 15th? Preferably Atlantic? I cannot find them anywhere :/ Thanks!

astronomicalwonders:

Sure thing! The eclipse will be visible throughout North and South America, Australia, New Zealand and other parts of the Pacific region. the Eclipse on the 15th will last from last 3:07 a.m. until 4:25 a.m. EDT in the US.

So with this info you can find the time of the eclipse in anytime zone (but this doesn’t mean it will be visible in that zone)

image

So if you’re in Hawaii, the eclipse will happen from 10:07 p.m. to 11:25 p.m.

I recommend everyone watch this if you are able to! this you can expect to see something cool like this:

thanks for the ask!
