Edible “Six-Pack Ring” is a great concept for marine wildlife

What if I told you that you could help wildlife by drinking beer? Saltwater Brewery, a Delray Beach (Florida) company, has developed a six-pack for beers that actually helps sea creatures instead of risking their lives.

High-resolution spectroscopy could revolutionize seawater uranium capture

New imaging techniques might revolutionize the technologies currently used to capture uranium from seawater, as researchers gain a better understanding of the way the compounds that bind the atoms interact with them.

The March award for awesome animal goes to THE MIMIC OCTOPUS

The mimic octopus, Thaumoctopus mimicus is a species of octopus that grows up to 60 cm (2 feet) in length and is naturally colored with brown and white stripes and spots.

Giant squids take to California

Yes ladies and gents, giant squids are all over the California beaches. Each of the squids weighs about 40 pounds, but some of them reach 60 and even more than that. I haven’t been able to find out what’s up with them, or why they gathered in such numbers, but according to scientists, this happens almost periodically, though they cannot
