I have this dream that I am hitting my dad with a baseball bat
And he is screaming and crying for help
And maybe halfway through it has more to do with me killing him
Then it ever did protecting myself
And I believe that yeah, dad, maybe no one is perfect
But I believe that you were pushing your luck
It just sucks it played out like this
A terrible movie and you can tell none of the actors even give a fuck
A graduate student has created the first man-made biological leaf. It absorbs water and carbon dioxide to produce oxygen just like a plant. He did this by suspending chloroplasts in a mixture made out of silk protein. He believed it can be used for many things but the most striking one is the thought that it could be used for long distance space travel. Plants do not grow in space, but this synthetic material can be used to produce oxygen in a hostile environment. (Video)
Really cool, but plants actually totally grow just fine in zero G: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2012/121207-plants-grow-space-station-science/
The sequined (or mirror) spider has silvery patches covering its abdomen. Because the speckles reflect and scatter light, they may make the spider harder for predators to see. Amazingly, the patches with change in size depending on the spider’s level of agitation.
