Scientists find Kermit the Frog’s twin In a Costa Rican jungle, scientists have found a new species of glass frog that bears a striking resemblance to popular Muppet, Kermit the Frog, CNET reports. In a new study published in Zootaxa, researchers describe the tiny doppelgänger, noting differences in its skin, call, and eyes. Like other glass frogs, it also has transparent abdominal skin, which allows a relatively clear view of its internal organs. The find marks the first new species of glass frog identified since 1973, scientists say.

The Grand Prismatic hot spring in Yellowstone National Park is among the park's myriad hydrothermal features created by the fact that Yellowstone is a supervolcano. There's more to Yellowstone National Park than meets the eye. Much more, as it turns out. You might already know that a supervolcano dominates the famous park that is situated on land in Wyoming and Montana. A shallow subsurface magma chamber has long been known. But now a second, much larger reservoir of partially molten rock has been discovered by researchers at the University of Utah. There's enough magma inside, they say, to fill the Grand Canyon more than 11 times.

A stingray fossil in the Houston Museum of Natural Science ~another case of soft tissue indicated in a fossil, which points to the fact that fossilization occurred RAPIDLY, otherwise, the soft tissue would have ROTTED long before it had a chance to become fossilized.

"We are Stardust" is not just a line from a Joni Mitchell song. There is solid science behind this statement. 90% of the elements found in the human body, and on Earth (except for Hydrogen & Helium) were formed at the heart of a collapsing star.
Science of the body.
Reminiscent of Breaking Bad!! Human Body Ingredients via imaginaryfoundation: 'The average human has approximately 100 trillion cells and each cell is made of approximately 100 trillion atoms, each of which were originally created in the center of a star...'
