Watch: No one knows why mushrooms in northern Brazil glow at night—so researchers are using LED-lit mushrooms to mimic nature and to find out.

Blue waterfalls (Agua Azul)
The Cascadas de Agua Azul (Spanish for "Blue-water Falls") are found in the Mexican state of Chiapas. They are located in the Municipality of Tumbalá, 69 kilometers from Palenque by the road that leads towards San Cristóbal de las Casas.

This waterfall consists of many cataracts following one after another as can be seen in the first photo in the picture gallery, taken from near the top of the sequence of cascades. The larger cataracts may be as high as 6 meters (20 feet) or so. The one pictured to the right is next to the bottom of the sequence.

The water is as blue as it looks in the pictures, and has a high mineral content. Where it falls on rocks or fallen trees it encases them in a thick shell-like coating of limestone. This can be seen clearly in one of the minor falls in one of the pictures in the gallery below, where the part of a tree that leans against the waterfall is heavily coated while the part further away is not coated. Some fully coated log shapes can also be seen inside the fall in that same picture, as well as coating on the rocks.

Pale Blue Dot Selfie is 25 Years Old

On this date in 1990, the Voyager 1 space probe looked back home and took the famous Pale Blue Dot image from a record distance of about 6 billion kilometers (3.7 billion miles, 40.5 Astronomical Units), as part of the Voyager Family Portrait Solar System collection.

RIP Leonard Nimoy aka Spock on Star Trek

May he be forever remembered throughout galaxies near, and far far away.

This is bad. Really bad.
It’s a scary time to be a Windows user. Lenovo was bundling HTTPS-hijacking Superfish adware, Comodo ships with an even worse security hole called PrivDog, and dozens of other apps like LavaSoft are doing the same. It’s really bad, but if you want your encrypted web sessions to be hijacked just head to CNET Downloads or any freeware site, because they are all bundling HTTPS-breaking adware now.

I saw this video playing in the background at a dinner party tonight. How great are these guys' hair?! They have amazing hair, I'm jealous. Great song, as well, obviously. We Googled what the band members look like today and they've aged well. I must come to the conclusion that they're all vampires.

Attention Android users!
A particularly devious new Android malware can make calls or take photos even if you shut the device down, according to security research firm AVG.

Awww. Mirror pics were the selfies of the 80's. Easy if you had an amazing, talented and beautiful photographer as a mate. And, yes, it's Valentine's Day. ;0
