"The Global Seed Vault can hold massive amounts of seeds. It is built to store a whopping 4.5 million varieties of crops, with each variety containing around 500 seeds. That equals a maximum of 2.5 billion seeds that can be stored in the Vault, according to Global Crop Diversity Trust, an international group that works in conjunction with the Norway government to manage the seeds in the vault. The vault currently holds more than 860,000 seed samples as of this writing. These seeds were donated by almost every country in the world, so there is a massive variety of seeds represented in the Global Seed Vault."

"A ladybug’s hind wings are sturdy enough to keep it in the air for up to two hours and enable it to reach speeds up to 37 miles an hour and altitudes as high as three vertically stacked Empire State Buildings. Yet they fold away with ease. These seemingly contradictory attributes perplexed Kazuya Saito, an aerospace engineer at the University of Tokyo and the lead author of the study."

CREATURE FEATURE

Our Aquarists will perform daily maintenance on the exhibits and sometimes with help from the octopus. This is a Lesser Two-Spotted Octopus (Octopus bimaculoides), she has been at the California Science Center since July 2016. The equipment being held by one of our diligent Aquarists is a gravel siphon that we use regularly to clean the sand of algae and detritus. Octopuses are often nocturnal but occasionally she will come out and explore her surroundings during the day. She can be found in the Kelp Forest in the Ecosystems Gallery.
