The Loch Ness Monster is missing

loch ness monster sightings

Have you seen the Loch Ness Monster? Neither has anybody else, at least for the past eight months. Monster fanatics who dedicate themselves to studying evidence new and old are used accustomed to getting more and more photos, video, and verbal accounts of their sightings at least every couple of months, but the flow of info abruptly dried up in August of last year. It's a remarkably long stretch of time for no sightings of the mythical creature to have been reported, and Nessie fans are actually starting to get worried.

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has one final mission, which ends with destruction

Cassini

NASA's Cassini spacecraft has been delivering fantastic views of Saturn and its moons for many years now, and this year it will meet its ultimate fate: incineration in Saturn's atmosphere. The satellite just completed its final flyby of the moon Titan and, thanks to the gravity boost provided by slinging around the moon it is now headed on what is essentially a months-long path that will end with Cassini's complete and utter annihilation.

Hobbits were real, and they lived in Indonesia

real hobbits

Humans have always been endlessly fascinated with our evolutionary history, and discovering a new species of human that once roamed the Earth is certainly cause for interest. When scientists announced the discovery of a tiny hobbit-like bipod called Homo floresiensis in Indonesia way back in 2003, they thought perhaps it was simply an evolutionary fork of the well-documented Homo erectus, but now they're not so sure. New research by the Australian National University suggests that the "hobbits" evolved from a much earlier human species, painting an even more interesting picture of their existence.

Nature throws humanity a softball, provides bugs that digest plastic

plastic-eating bugs

Mother Earth is one seriously gracious host. Humanity has done little else to the planet that produced us than completely destroy it at every turn. We dump toxic oil into oceans, irreversibly alter the climate, drive species into extinction, and pile heaps of trash everywhere we can find space for it. Nature owes us nothing, but it still finds a way to help us save our own hides on a regular basis. The latest example? How about a caterpillar that eats and breaks down the one thing humans have created that pollutes for centuries before decomposing on its own: plastic.

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft just caught a glimpse of Earth, all the way from Saturn

nasa photos

NASA and its spectacular space hardware often spend so much time checking out our planetary neighbors that we forget Earth offers some pretty cool photo ops as well. A brand new photo released by NASA is a great reminder of that, and it was shot all the way from Saturn, courtesy of the always reliable Cassini spacecraft just before it's scheduled to begin the most harrowing part of its entire years-long mission.

Man who made his living killing African wildlife gets eaten by African wildlife

african hunter eaten

Scott Van Zyl made his living taking wealthy clients on "safaris" for the sole purpose of bringing home trophies like leopards, zebras, wildebeests and even lions. Now, investigators in Zimbabwe believe that Van Zyl ended up on the wrong end of the predator-prey relationship, and DNA tests have confirmed that he was attacked, killed, and eaten by crocodiles while on a hunting trip.

Elon Musk’s grand plan for your brain includes adding new senses

elon musk neuralink

Between serving as the boss of both Tesla and SpaceX, you probably wouldn't imagine that Elon Musk has a ton of time to devote to new business ventures. You'd be wrong, because he's about to be the CEO of a third company and — if you can possibly believe it — this new startup has ambitions that go far beyond gas-free driverless cars and space exploration. It's called Neuralink, and its ultimate aim is to merge man and machine into something much greater than either.
