MassimoAnodizing titanium generates an array of different titanium color without dyes, for which it is sometimes used in art and jewelry. The color formed is dependent on the thickness of the oxide, which is determined by the anodising voltage buff.ly/2Py1DUFpic.twitter.com/3YD4dohAA9
The pygmy seahorse Hippocampus japapigu sp. n. is described based on three specimens, 13.9–16.3 mm SL, collected from a mixed soft coral and algae reef at 11 m depth at Hachijo-jima Island, Izu Islands, Japan. The new taxon shares morphological...
MassimoScientists recently discovered a new species of tiny seahorse off the coast of Japan. It is abundant but only the size of a grain of rice and well camouflaged, so it’s been literally hiding in plain sight buff.ly/2LiQ68spic.twitter.com/mJDBqbpuU9

Earth is not the home you think it is. Far below the scant surface spaces we inhabit, the planet is teeming with an incredibly vast and deep 'dark biosphere' of subterranean lifeforms that scientists are only just beginning to comprehend.

MassimoA heat pipe is a thin shell of copper that surrounds a tube of sponge-like material filled with some water vapor and sealed with a low pressure inside. It transfers heat much more efficiently than simple copper, as visualized by this liquid crystal buff.ly/2nXUQH9pic.twitter.com/M7FV5y3UNV
In chaos theory, they say the infinitesimal flapping of a butterfly's wings can hypothetically cascade into a fierce tornado.

The society for people who love the sky and clouds
MassimoAsperitas is a cloud formation first proposed as a type of cloud in 2009 by Gavin Pretor-Pinney of the Cloud Appreciation Society. These ones have been photographed by Ken Prior over Pertshire, UK in 2012. Bonus: they strongly look like a Van Gogh painting buff.ly/2LQPTySpic.twitter.com/Wm8Ihs8D1T
Global census of forest fungi suggests warming could trigger soil carbon bomb
