How Pollution Is Ruining America’s National Parks

U.S. national parks are a place to escape pollution, but that may not be true anymore. So, what’s making the air at the parks so unhealthy?

Hubble: Universe in Motion

Since its launch 25 Years ago, the Hubble Telescope has returned images of unprecedented beauty of a dynamic and changing universe.

In this episode of COSMIC JOURNEYS, Hubble’s most iconic images are bought to life to answer some of the most important questions facing astronomers today. Colliding galaxies, the birth and death of stars, jets of gas thrown out by material crashing into distant suns: these incredible images tech us valuable lessons about how galaxies are formed, what dark matter is and even the fate of the earth itself.

Zooming in on the Lagoon Nebula

Hubble Space Telescope image shows the center of the Lagoon Nebula (Messier 8), a region filled with intense winds from hot stars, churning funnels of gas, and energetic star formation – all embedded within an intricate haze of gas and pitch-dark dust.

The bright star embedded in dark clouds at the center of this image is known as Herschel 36. It is responsible for sculpting the surrounding cloud – stripping away material and influencing its shape.

This image combines both infrared and optical light rather than being purely optical. Infrared light cuts through thick, obscuring patches of dust and gas, revealing the more intricate structures underneath and producing a completely different landscape

How ants use ‘combs’ and ‘brushes’ to keep their antennae clean

For the first time, scientists at the University of Cambridge have uncovered the secrets of how ants use different types of hairs to clean away dirt from their antennae.

For an insect, grooming is serious business. If the incredibly sensitive hairs on their antennae get too dirty, they are unable to smell food, follow the trails of their kin or even communicate.

Camponotus rufifemur ants have a cleaning structure on their front legs that is used to groom their antennae. The device, similar in shape to a tiny lobster claw, is covered in different types of hairs. During cleaning, the antenna is pulled through the device, clearing away dirt particles using ‘bristles’ a ‘comb’ and a ‘brush’.

In the future, the research could be applied to the field of nanotechnology – where the contamination of small things is a big problem.
