Teslaphoresis

Researchers at Rice University have discovered that the strong field emitted by a Tesla coil causes carbon nanotubes to self-assemble into long wires. This phenomenon has been named "teslaphoresis" and could help pave the way for the scalable assembly of nanotubes.

In addition to forming a circuit between two LEDs, the nanowires are also capable of harvesting energy from the emitted electromagnetic field to illuminate them. While the field from the Tesla coil is currently limited to only a few feet, patterned surfaces and multiple coils could create much more complex nanowire patterns.

Deep-Sea Jellyfish

This jellyfish was imaged during the NOAA's 2016 Deepwater Exploration of the Marianas Trench while exploring the informally-named Enigma Seamount at a depth of 3,700m (2.3 miles). While scientists have determined that this hydromedusa belongs to the genus Crossota, the exact species classification is still unknown/undecided.

The red-colored radial canals seen within the bell are part of the jellyfish's water vascular system used for locomotion, food and waste transport, and respiration. They appear to be connecting points for the bright yellow-colored gonads.

Carnivorous Plant

Drosera capensis, more commonly known as the Cape Sundew, is a carnivorous plant native to the Cape in South Africa. Its leaves are covered in brightly-colored tentacles that secrete a sticky mucilage that traps insects. When an insect gets stuck, the leaves roll lengthwise towards the center (thigmotropism) over the course of tens of minutes. This accelerates digestion by increasing the surface area of digestive glands in contact with the prey.
