The mask depicted above is hollow. One side is concave the other, convex. However despite how hard we try we can only see two concave faces. This is an optical illusion.
So why does this happen? The brain is said to have specific regions dedicated to processing faces. We know that faces are convex from our experience and knowledge so our brain processes it in a way that makes sense to us and matches our expectations.
This is so strong that it entirely over rides reality even when we are aware that what we are seeing is wrong, it is impossible to stop ourselves from perceiving it as a convex protruding face!
However this optical illusion actually fails to work on those with schizophrenia. This is to do with their unique way of processing information.
Recent research indicates that the bumblebee is capable of flight past the highest point in the world! So how is this possible?
Most insects are unable to due to thinning of the air, a lack of oxygen and an inability to generate lift. The bumblebee however has adapted to the thinner air at high altitudes; not by beating their wings faster, but by swinging their wings through a wider arc. This means they are able to displace more air, generating enough lift to keep them a-flight at these high altitudes. Bees have a uneven muscle to body weight ratio which also helps them to fly in these incredible altitudes.
But why adapt this? There is no pollen on top of Mount Everest? Scientists believe that this is actually just a coincidence, all the adaptations correlate with pollen and nectar carrying. This is so bees can carry the maximum amount of pollen-sometimes twice their body weight! It also serves as a handy mechanism for escaping predators.
But that still doesn’t explain how they can breath in the limited oxygen supply and scientists are still trying to figure this one out.
Artistic microscope slides produced in the Victorian era (1840~1900) by arranging hundreds of tiny diatoms into intricate patterns. This was often accomplished by using a single hair to move the diatoms in a special chamber that prevented disturbance to the slide. The fabrication of these amazing objects must have required incredible patience, attention to detail, and a steady hand.

The Rose of Jericho(Anastatica hierochuntica) is a species of resurrection plant. These plants are characterized by their ability to use Poikilohydric mechanisms which enable them to survive extreme dehydration for years at a time.
