A group of geochemists has announced the discovery of dozens of weird deep-sea octopuses — pink, dinner-plate-sized creatures that had massive eyes and were guarding their eggs in an absolutely inhospitable place.
Found thousands of feet deep within the Pacific, a few hundred miles off the coast of Costa Rica, the so-called octopus moms belong to a new species of genus Muusoctopus. They were spotted by scientists during two deep-sea expeditions led in 2013-14.
A new study exploring shrimp and krill, a few centimeter long invertebrates with feathered legs, suggests these tiny sea-dwellers can stir ocean waters rapidly fast when in clusters.

In the largest survey of its kind so far, researchers have looked at the “DNA” of over 340,000 stars in our home galaxy, to identify the stars with the same chemical composition as the sun. Stars with the same chemistry originated in the same star clusters, and the survey would help astronomers find siblings of the sun before the Milky Way tore apart the stellar nursery where they all formed.
Elite dating apps are conspicuously widening the wealth gap in America, and everyone seems to be perfectly fine with it.

Just recently, astronomers at NASA spotted an asteroid that whizzed past our planet a few hours after being spotted. The space rock was as big as a warehouse (155-330 feet across) and approached Earth at just half the distance to the moon.
