Scientists Find The Highest-Ever Concentration of Microplastics on The Seafloor
We found up to 1.9 million pieces of microplastic in a 5 cm-thick layer covering just one square metre – the highest levels of microplastics yet recorded on the ocean floor.

Micro-angelo? This 3D-printed ‘David’ is just one millimeter tall.

It was created using Exaddon’s “CERES” 3D printer, which lays down a stream of ionized liquid copper at a rate of as little as femtoliters per second, forming a rigid structure with features as small as a micrometer across. The Tiny David took about 12 hours to print, though something a little simpler in structure could probably be done much quicker.

Obviously, I haven't clicked on this thread in a while. But this article reminded me of Grund's excellent discussion on usage of 3D space: Diegesis. Of course, David is one of the examples.

Well now they've gone and done it.

Meet the sturddlefish, a new fish hybrid accidentally created by scientists

This weird-looking fish is a hybrid offspring of the American paddlefish and Russian sturgeon, both critically endangered.
Using gynogenesis (a method of asexual reproduction that requires the presence of sperm without the contribution of their DNA for completion), the researchers accidentally used paddlefish sperm to fertilize the sturgeon eggs. Remarkably, the hybridization worked.

I love Mountain Dew (well, most varieties of it, anyway), but if I drink it, it's no more than 1 can per day, and I basically consider it a dessert (not something to drink to quench thirst).

Just how tough is life? Scientists revived 100 million year old microbes.
Japanese scientists say they have revived microbes that were in a dormant state for more than 100 million years.

The tiny organisms had survived in the South Pacific seabed - in sediment that is poor in nutrients, but has enough oxygen to allow them to live.

Microbes are among the earth's simplest organisms, and some can live in extreme environments where more developed life forms cannot survive.

After incubation by the scientists, the microbes began to eat and multiply.

That's exactly what 2020 needed - ancient mystery microbes. What could will go wrong?

This is where we find out that theories about the dinosaur extinction were WAY off.

NPR
The first genetically-altered squid has scientists excited about a potential new way to study marine critters that are so weird, they've sometimes been compared to alien life forms.

Scientists report this week that they have disabled a pigmentation gene in a squid called Doryteuthis pealeii. Their success shows that cephalopods—which include squid and octopuses--can finally be studied using the same kind of genetic tools that have let scientists explore the biology of more familiar lab animals like mice and fruit flies. Those are easy to keep in the laboratory, and scientists routinely modify their genes to get insights into behavior, diseases, and possible treatments.
