1. Facts About the Internet's Undersea Cables:

There’s disagreement as to why, exactly, sharks like gnawing on submarine communications cables. Maybe it has something to do with electromagnetic fields. Maybe they’re just curious. Maybe they’re trying to disrupt our communications infrastructure before mounting a land-based assault. (My theory.) The point remains that sharks are chewing on the Internet, and  sometimes damage it. In response, companies such as Google are shielding their cables in shark-proof wire wrappers.

A solar furnace is a structure that uses concentrated solar power to produce high temperatures, usually for industry. Parabolic mirrors or heliostats concentrate light (Insolation) onto a focal point. The temperature at the focal point may reach 3,500 °C (6,330 °F), and this heat can be used to generate electricity, melt steel, make hydrogen fuel or nanomaterials.

The largest solar furnace is at Odeillo in the Pyrénées-Orientales in France, opened in 1970. It employs an array of plane mirrors to gather sunlight, reflecting it onto a larger curved mirror.

11. Transformer Owl

The Northern White Owl can take on 3 radically different shapes in response to raptor sightings. The owl has a rather notable defense mechanism. When faced with a predator (like another owl slightly larger than it) the bird flares its wings to appear larger. When faced with something much larger than itself, it pulls its feathers inwards, elongates its body, and narrows its eyes to thin slits.

MASS MIGRATION

'Sardine Run' in South Africa is the greatest underwater adventure imaginable


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8utZbMWWVJc



The sardine run of southern Africa occurs from May through July when billions of sardines – or more specifically the Southern African pilchard Sardinopssagax – spawn in the cool waters of the Agulhas Bank and move northward along the east coast of South Africa. Their sheer numbers create a feeding frenzy along the coastline.
