“At least one species of cyanobacteria, called Chroococcidiopsis thermalis—which lives in some of the world's most extreme environments—can absorb redder (less energetic) wavelengths of light, thus allowing it to thrive in dark conditions, such as deep underwater in hot springs.” http://bit.ly/2yoqBRU

    Weird Low-Light Bacteria Could Potentially Thrive on Mars
    An international team of scientists has found that a strange type of bacteria can turn light into fuel in incredibly dim environments. Similar bacteria could someday help humans colonize Mars and expand our search for life on other planets, researchers said in a statement released with the new work.

Charon, Pluto’s largest known satellite, was discovered on this day in 1978 by James W. Christy. Christy suggested the name “Charon” as a more scientific sounding version of his wife’s nickname, Char. Coincidentally, Charon is the name of a Greek mythological figure, the ferryman of the dead. In Greek mythology, Charon is closely associated with Hades, whom the Romans call “Pluto.” https://go.nasa.gov/2tJJ5Fo IMAGE: Charon Complexity | 2015 | NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration

“Drag and cabaret is a space for permission, right? Let’s be loose, let’s really be ourselves by being someone else. I think Mr. Rogers is a space for permission of feeling.,” - John Jarboe Read more of the WHYY interview at the link below. You Can Never Go Down the Drain is now running through July 1.

    Philly cabaret artist offers neighborly homage to Mr. Rogers
    "When I was very young, I had a dog that I loved very much. Her name is Mitzi. She got to be old, and she died," confessed Fred Rogers in the 1970 "Death of a Goldfish" episode of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood." "When she died, I cried."

As a result of its location on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that forms the boundary between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, Iceland is one of the world’s most geologically active places with numerous volcanoes, geysers and other volcanic phenomena found throughout the dynamic landscape of the North Atlantic Island. In fact, Iceland is home to one of the world’s newest Islands, Surtsey, a volcanic island which first reached the surface of the ocean in 1963. http://bit.ly/2JIpTQJ IMAGE: Howell Williams | Surtsey Eruption | 1963 | National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
