There are lots of weird lakes out there, but one lake in Tanzania has just the right pH so that any animal unlucky enough to fall into its waters are preserved and calcified for eternity. Apparently, there are such frozen bodies of birds and bats all over this demon pond.

no fuck you
when science and alcohol meet <3
This bartender gets all of the tips… ever…
HOW DOES THIS WORK
Science side of tumblr please tell us how the hell this is possible
The colored liquids have different densities!
The Red is the most dense so it’s at the bottom, and so forth with the colors.
ok we are happy now thank you
Red hot nickel dropped in water…
I just yelled THAT’S SO FASCINATING
As well you should because THAT IS SERIOUSLY SO FASCINATING
THAT IS THE CUTEST NOISE I HAVE EVER HEARD
it’s like a tiny magical girl transformation scene
thats how they should just make the noises in any scifi movie ever
i love science
gUYS VOYAGER 1 IS CONFIRMED OUT OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM WE’VE BROKEN OUT OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM THIS IS REALLY COOL
OH MY GOSH REALLY THIS IS SO COOL AUGH HUMANITY
Plus, there’s this incredibly scary but really fucking cool clip of what interstellar space sounds like.

I watched a documentary on the sun the other day
Each one of those little plasma cells all over this image is the size of fucking Texas
let’s talk about housecats and how fucking weird they are evolutionarily/anthropologically
like who thought it was a good idea to have tiny malicious predators in our homes anyways????? (not us actually)
are they even domesticated????!!!?? (yes) do they even feel LOVE???????!!? (yes)
LET’S LEARN ABOUT CATS
“you ready 2 learn punk”
SCREAMS THIS IS AN ESSAY OF JOY AND BEAUTY
Mouse cloned from single drop of blood
PTI: Scientists have for the first time cloned a mouse from a single drop of blood.
Researchers used circulating blood cells collected from the tail of a donor mouse to produce the clone. The female mouse cloned from a peripheral leukocyte proved to be fertile by natural mating, and lived for a normal lifespan, researchers said.
Researchers at the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology in Kobe, Japan, devised a technique to avoid the diminishing returns of recloning the same cell. Success rates increased from the standard three per cent in first-generation clones to ten per cent in first-generation and 14 per cent in higher-generation clones, researchers said.

Japanese scientists have grown a primitive liver in a petri dish using a person’s skin cells. The liver is the first complex, functioning organ grown in a lab from human skin and, when the researchers transplanted the proto-liver into a mouse, it worked like a regular liver would, breaking down human drugs and making blood proteins.

THIS SHIT IS LITERALLY REAL
THAT IS LITERAL LIFE THAT THEY LITERALLY GREW 100% SYNTHETICALLY NOT IN A LIVING BEING
IF YOU DO NOT THINK THAT IS THE TIGHTEST SHIT THEN GET OUT OF MY FACE BECAUSE THIS IS LITERALLY THE FUTURE OKAY
Holy shit though. Out of skin cells?? Epithelial tissue is totally different from the hepatic tissue that the liver is made up of. This is actually really amazing.
I mean, its one thing to make a liver from stem cells, which are differentiable But, to make it from skin cells? HOLY SHIT
