JK Rowling's Harry Potter Books Inspire Name For New 'Soul-Sucking Dementor Wasp'

By +Sara Nelson 

A newly discovered species of wasp has been named after the dementor characters in JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series. 

The Ampulex dementor wasp from Thailand paralyses its prey with venom before eating them alive – much like the kiss from one of Rowling’s dementors, which sucks out a person’s soul. 

According to WWF, the wasp hunts cockroaches, injecting venom into the mass of neurons in the prey’s belly that turn the roach into a “passive zombie”.

Amateur astronomers are interested in seeing Pluto with their own telescopes, and this is what we will discuss here. Pluto is at present around 14th magnitude, requiring a telescope with at least 8 inches (200mm) aperture.

Betsy McCall originally shared to Science & Math:
 
The holes in Swiss cheese lend it a very distinctive appearance. But new analysis reveals that they’re not a result of gas produced bacteria in the cheese, or cheeky nibbling by mice—but something else entirely.

If anything in nature could be creepier than cockroaches, it would be zombie cockroaches, so good thing those don’t exist, right? Right? Actually, they do exist, thanks to the terrifying work of the dementor wasp. I’m never going outside again.

Researchers in fields from epidemiology to genetics are studying mummies, using the latest imaging technology. Now we know more than ever before about what lies beneath the mummies’ wrappings — and these long-dead people are telling us a lot about ancient lives and cultures.

How do you test the parachutes that will save spacecraft as they tumble towards the surface of a planet from the reaches of space? In the world’s largest wind tunnel, of course.
