Arctic Biologist Alexander Semenov’s Striking Underwater Arctic Sea Life Photos


The White Sea Biological Station sits at latitude 66° N, just on the cusp of the Arctic Circle, and on the shores of the White Sea, a lone arctic biologist explores the depths of the waters, photographing stunning pictures of arctic life. The only way to get there is by boat in summer and by snowmobile in winter.

Soap Bubble Display is World’s Thinnest Display and Could Create 3D Images


A step beyond transparent display, soap bubble displays are actually something possible. Ultrasonic vibrations shot through the soap bubble display alter the images’ texture. More than just a two-dimensional display, these kinds of displays could even create a 3D image if stacked properly.

1930s Photos Reveal History of Greenland Glaciers


Rediscovered aerial photos of Greenland from the 1930s have allowed scientists to construct the history of the glacier retreat and advance in the area. The photos were rediscovered in a castle outside Copenhagen, Denmark, and they have allowed Anders Bjork and his colleagues to develop a deeper understanding of how climate change has affected the ice loss and glacier movements of the last 80 years.
