MIT researchers have made a device that absorbs moisture from the air and turns into drinking water.

But, DID YOU KNOW that the name hippocampus for the important brain region found in the temporal lobe of humans and other animals comes from the Greek word for seahorse; because, when removed from the brain and body, this brain structure resembles a seahorse?! 😯 The genus seahorses belong to is also called hippocampus. 🧠WEIRD, RIGHT?

This common ancestor lived about 50 million years ago. By looking at the DNA we can most accurately determine how closely related species are to one another, meaning how recently their shared common ancestor lived. Divergent evolution led to these highly different animals evolving from the same ancestor. The rock hyrax is also a beautiful example of convergent evolution. Despite being much more distantly related to rodents than to the elephant or the manatee, the rock hyrax convergently evolved many of the same characteristics that rodents did.

@Science.News is responsible for this recent display of bioluminescence that is lighting up the waters of the Pacific Ocean.🔥🌊🔥 . According to Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego, the red tide is caused by a cluster of dinoflagellates — microscopic organisms — that live in phytoplankton and light up when there is movement. Scripps scientists are gathering samples of the current red tide for future research on "the genetic and metabolic characteristics of the organisms." . No one is sure how long the current red tide will last, but the last red tide in San Diego took place in September 2013 and lasted a full week. And a similar occurrence in October 2011 lasted a full month! . 📸@Science.News #science #queer #periodictable #penquins #universityofutah #schoolyear #lgbtqpride #scifi #pansexual #neildegrassetyson- Double tag the pic - Tag your friends A red tide just off the San Diego coast, captured by
