A team of researchers with Aachen University in Germany has found that the thorny devil lizard is able to supplement its water intake by covering its body with sand and then using straw-like folds in its skin to pull in water, which is then directed to its throat. In their paper published in the Journal of Experimental Biology, the team describes experiments they carried out with several lizard specimens, what they observed and the means by which the odd-looking lizards survive in the arid desert region of Western Australia.

Some of the ocean’s smallest organisms can now be observed in their natural habitat.
Quantum physics can be intimidating, but if you keep these six key concepts in mind, you should be able to improve your understanding of it.
- Everything Is Made Of Waves; Also, Particles
- Quantum Physics is discret
- Quantum Physics is Probabilistic
- Quantum Physics is non-Local
- Quantum Physics is (Mostly) Very small
- Quantum Physics Is Not Magic

The study of physics is the study of the universe—and more specifically, just how the hell the universe works. It is without a doubt the most interesting branch of science, because the universe, as it turns out, is a whole lot more complicated than it looks on the surface (and it looks pretty complicated already). The world works in some really weird ways, and though you may need a PhD to understand why, you only need a sense of awe to appreciate how.
Here are ten of the most amazing things physicists have discovered about our universe:
- Time Stops at the Speed of LightSpeed Of Light
- Quantum Entanglement
- Light is Affected by Gravity
- Dark Matter
- Quantum Foam
- Double slit experiment
- All objects fall at the same speed
- All matter is just energy
- OUr universe is expanding
- Wave-particle duality
In reality, the planet’s innards are no less remarkable than the Jurassic–period monsters and subterranean labyrinths that Verne envisioned: Iron crystals stretch 20 kilometers long, colossal plumes of liquefied rock surge toward the surface and fragments of ancient seafloors lie entombed in the mantle.
