Every single wild animal has a special environmental niche that it occupies to survive, and wild mountain goats have evolved to occupy some of the weirdest and most hard-to-reach ecological niches out there – steep cliff faces.

The Elephant Foot Glacier in northeastern Greenland, looks like a bowl of batter that has been poured over a pan. The sheer pressure of the zillion-ton ice has broken through the mountain and spilled into the sea in a near symmetric, fan-shaped lobe. Such glaciers are known as piedmont glaciers, and the Elephant Foot Glacier is a perfect example of it. Its shape is so distinct that it stands out dramatically from its surroundings when viewed from high above.

If you've got $80,000 to spare, you can put a (fully refundable) deposit down on an Aurora Station stay beginning today. Folks who fly up will undergo a three-month training program, the last portion of which will occur aboard the space hotel itself.

A M A G I N E 😱🛸
Astronomers and the public have been fascinated by these biggest cosmic smashups.
One reason is because there are a lot of them. Unlike most astronomical objects, galaxies are fairly large compared to the distances between them. So every now and then they run into each other — unlike stars or planets, which are very tiny compared to their separations.

Nowadays we know that galaxy collisions are more than just interesting flukes. They have been critical to the history of galaxy evolution and star formation throughout the universe. Big galaxies like the Milky Way got built up by collisions and mergers of little ones, which were the first to develop from the Big Bang. A collision disrupts and compresses the interstellar gas clouds in each galaxy involved, and this caused the huge bursts of star formation that lit the early universe. (Younger stars like our Sun are in the minority of latecomers.) The complete piecing together of cosmic-structure formation, from the Big Bang to now, has been one of the triumphs of modern cosmology — and it has put galaxy collisions front-and-center.

A russian scientist named Dr.Anatoli Brouchkov injects himself with a 3.5 million year bacteria in hopes of finding the key to longevity.
"I was just curious," he said.

So he decided, YOLO. He'd inject himself with the bacteria, and see what happened. "It's not real science," he's acknowledged. (In other words, it's not a controlled trial.) But... maybe now he'll live forever!
He's definitely still alive, and he says he's feeling better than ever. In 2015, he said he hadn't had a cold or flu in the two years since he injected himself. He also reported higher energy levels.

This could all be the placebo effect, or it could be something more — we need more research to know for sure if Bacillus F can extend human life. But if Dr. Brouchkov lives past age 1,000, that also could be, you know, a sign.

Great white sharks have such a strong sense of smell that they can detect a colony of seals two miles away. If there was only one drop of blood in 100 litres of water, a great white would smell it.

Time Is A Dimension 🕑
We all understand the basic concept of three-dimensional space. Technically, it means that every point in our universe has a physical address, tractable by a coordinate along three perpendicular planes (X, Y, and Z for those who remember high school trigonometry). It's just one of the many interesting things about space. But does a point in space really "exist" without a time in which to do so?
There is no known physical law requiring time to be a dimension, but Albert Einstein’s special theory of relativity led to just that proposition. Referred to as the fourth dimension, time is now widely accepted to be seamlessly woven with three-dimensional space in a continuum scientists refer to as spacetime.

There are some fairly big snakes on earth these days – the python can grow up to 30 feet (the world’s longest snake), and the anaconda can weigh over 200 lbs, making it the heaviest snake. But Titanoboa, a monstrous serpent as long as a school bus, which existed about 60 million years ago, and then – fortunately for us, apparently went extinct - was much longer and heavier than any existing snake. So big, in fact, it fed on 20-foot crocodiles!
