“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

In 1998, Koko, a gorilla that had been taught to communicate through sign language, took to the internet in an online chatroom. This was first (and only) “inter-species” online chat ever conducted, and the results were: surprising. The Franklin Institute’s Chief Digital Officer Susan Poulton facilitated the event and tells her story, and, in memory of the extraordinary ape, provided the rare transcript for us to share. http://bit.ly/2KdxiuH Koko, who was born in 1971 and lived to be 46, passed away this week. http://bit.ly/2KdxiuH

    When Koko the Gorilla Chatted Online
    I woke up this morning and learned that Koko the gorilla had passed away peacefully in her sleep last night at the age of 46. Twenty years ago, I had the honor of producing the first ever inter-species online "live chat" with Koko and her caregiver Dr. Penny Patterson, part of a series of internet firsts we achieved at AOL (America Online).

    The Universe Is Not a Simulation, but We Can Now Simulate It
    In the early 2000s, a small community of coder-cosmologists set out to simulate the 14-billion-year history of the universe on a supercomputer. They aimed to create a proxy of the cosmos, a Cliffs Notes version in computer code that could run in months instead of giga-years, to serve as a laboratory for studying the real universe.
