Scientists have discovered nature’s newest strongest material — and it comes from sea snails

"All hail the mighty mollusk.

In a study set to come out this month in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, British researchers announced that the teeth of shelled, aquatic creatures called limpets are the strongest biological material on Earth, overtaking the previous record-holder, spider silk."

Shakespeare Folio Discovered in French Public Library

"The book was discovered this fall by librarians at a public library in St.-Omer, near Calais, who were sifting through its collections for an exhibition on English-language literature. The title page and other introductory material were torn off, but Rémy Cordonnier, the director of the library’s medieval and early modern collection, suspected that the book — cataloged as an unexceptional old edition — might in fact be a first folio."

Out Of This World — The Mysterious Mental Side Effects Of Traveling Into Space

Behind the concept of Break-Off: "While flying at the edge of the troposphere, 'a frightening feeling of detachment' set in. There, in the halo of thin silence surrounding the earth in 1956, he didn’t trust his own mind not to self-destruct."
The Virgin Galactic crash made the mechanical risks of space tourism clearer, but the psychological effects of space travel largely remain unknown.

Watch the first ever video of a laser beam moving through thin air

The six-nanosecond-long clip was shot at 20 billion frames per second, detecting single photons at a time — the smallest amount of light possible.

Hairsplitter Hawthorne: it's not Mensa's article. They simply quoted its headline. The article's headline reads: "Watch the first ever video of a laser beam moving through thin air.. The six-nanosecond-long clip was shot at 20 billion frames per second." Yes indeed though, it's obvious that the video itself is 25 seconds long.

Check out this beautifully redesigned version of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series

"The Harry Potter books are so magical so mysterious and so adventurous. Basically these books are on the border of childhood. Therefore my goal was to redesign them with such illustrations that able to show this extraordinary atmosphere of the books. I started to experiment with interactive illustrations what not distract attention from the plot, but add to the story."

*Finally, a New Clue to Solve the CIA’s Mysterious Kryptos Sculpture *

"To honor the 25th anniversary of the Wall’s demise and the artist’s 69th birthday this year, Sanborn has decided to reveal a new clue to help solve his iconic and enigmatic artwork. It’s only the second hint he’s released since the sculpture was unveiled in 1990 and may finally help unlock the fourth and final section of the encrypted sculpture, which frustrated sleuths have been struggling to crack for more than two decades."

Listen to the Oscillation of Comet 67p's Magnetic Field Serenade the Depths of Space

"Rosetta’s Plasma Consortium (RPC) has uncovered a mysterious ‘song’ that Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is singing into space. The comet seems to be emitting a ‘song’ in the form of oscillations in the magnetic field in the comet’s environment. It is being sung at 40-50 millihertz, far below human hearing, which typically picks up sound between 20 Hz and 20 kHz. To make the music audible to the human ear, the frequencies have been increased in this recording."
