Time for another fluids round-up! Here are some of the best fluids-related links I’ve seen around:
– Above The Brain Scoop tells us about beetles that spend their whole lives underwater. They carry a little bubble of air with them in order to breathe!
– Microfluidics are helping reveal how cancer cells metastasize and spread through the bloodstream.
– It’s official! NASA’s going to build X-planes again.
– Metallic foams can stop bullets and radiation, spawning many potential future uses here on Earth or in space.
– Why nature prefers hexagons, especially in honeycomb, bubbles, and foam.
– Earth has beautiful auroras, but if you could look at Jupiter with x-ray vision, you’d see something even more spectacular – a non-stop aurora that brightens on a regular schedule.
– SciShow asks where the water goes in Minnesota’s Devil’s Kettle Falls. Conservation of mass says it has to go somewhere!
