Read Dracula in real time.* On June 23, at night Jonathan hears the Szgany workmen digging somewhere in the castle. A little later he sees the Count emerge from his window and crawl down the the wall, but this time Dracula is wearing Jonathan’s travelling clothes. While keeping watch later, the three vampire women try to put Jonathan into a trance, as they materialize out of swirling dust, but Jonathan flees, only to hear from the Count’s room, “a sharp wail quickly suppressed. A woman appears below the window in the courtyard and shouts up at Jonathan, “Monster, give me my child!” As she beats on the castle door, Dracula beckons the wolves. The pack descends upon the woman. “Before long they streamed away singly, licking their lips.” Illustration is the cover of the 1916 edition, published by Rider & Son in London. *The novel, Dracula, is comprised of journal entries and letters, all dated, so throughout the year, we’ll be posting a day-by-day account of the plot of Dracula. Follow along with your own reading and feel free to leave comments below (no spoilers for those who may be reading for the first time). #Draculainrealtime

“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

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)
