Oh god, oh god why?!: Researchers turn dead spiders into ‘necrobotic’ grippers. Spiders don’t have bones and muscles, but hydraulics and blood, and when that blood is replaced (via scientist) with air, the legs become grippers. It’s a whole thing, and you probably shouldn’t watch the video.

Blue moon, I saw you standing alone: UCLA scientists discover places on the moon where it’s always ‘sweater weather’. People could potentially live and work in lunar pits and caves with steady temperatures in the low 60s. We talk about the possibilities of living on the moon in these temperate pits.
