Google, in conjunction with NASA, TIME, and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), have compiled years of satellite images from different parts of the Earth into digestible, eye-opening GIFS.
IBM’s solar collector can meet global energy requirements if built across 2% of the Sahara’s land area. A highly advanced cooling network, seen in the likes of the Aquasar supercomputer, makes it possible.
A completely self-sufficient building revealed at the International Housing Exhibition in Hamburg produces renewable energy by harvesting micro-algae.
Presumably, it is the largest page in the web, 1 mile high and 800 feet wide (or 1.6km x 250m), and rightly so, since it has to fit in every single one of the 7 billion inhabitants of this planet.
Much of our preoccupation with robots relates to their menacing army pack animals that can run as fast as cheetahs or perform precision air strikes from remote controlled drones, but there are also some really interesting stuff being done to aquatic robots.
A new species of fish has been discovered in the depths of the Antarctic ocean, which exhibits unique characteristics no seen in any other vertebrate.
A small asian fish has managed to swim across the pacific ocean in a baitbox. The fish drifted by boat across the ocean after the 2011 tsunami

Researchers in the US and UK have made a breakthrough that could lead to bacteria becoming microscopic bio-batteries, offering humanity a new potential energy source.
So far, paleontologists believed dinosaurs mated like most four-legged animals (a.k.a. doggy style), but new studies suggest that dinosaurs preferred the missionary position, and they had very good reasons to do so.
Reports out of Australia’s University of New South Wales are saying that their scientists have successfully created an embryo from the extinct gastric-brooding frog. While it is only in embryo form, they say that the species will live again and possibly see other extinct animals restored as well.
