Elon Musk, self-made billionaire, inventor, and entrepreneur has started a quest for advancements in the technology like Tony Stark in the Iron Man movies.

The horsehair worm is swallowed in larval form by an insect host. As the worm grows and matures inside the insect, the insect host seems to surrender its will to the worm. Three months later, the host, almost zombie-like, is compelled to seek out water. When the insect enters the water, the mature horsehair worm emerges from the host’s body wall---as a writhing, knotting, mass of hair-like worm.

Wrasses are a large and diverse family, and seem to be everywhere. They are quick and colorful. Perhaps some of the most vibrant colors on our reefs belong to the family of wrasses. Worldwide there are over five hundred species of wrasse. Here we have about twenty. Most species are carnivorous, feeding on small crustaceans.
This Goat Is a Hero

Classified as a “nuclear” species, goatfish truly play a leadership role. Other species are attracted to the substratum-disturbing foraging. And when several goatfish are involved in the fray, the groupies increase in number and diversity. Goatfish groups attract up to six follower species. While many of the follower species eat the same food, the goatfish don’t seem to mind.
All Puffed Up
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,650. Language: English. Published: July 16, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Science & Nature » Life Sciences / Marine Biology
Puffers are a group of fish I like to shoot, especially the big ones. They have a shy, jovial personality. At least they always look like they are smiling. Puffers are related to boxfish, and are also toxic, but in a different way. I found references to two toxins, tetrodotoxin (TTX) and saxitoxin (STX), which are nerve agents. They are chemically distinct, but act on the nervous system similarly.
A Whale of a Good Time (Maybe)
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,740. Language: English. Published: July 9, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Science & Nature » Life Sciences / Marine Biology
As I stood on the boat with my morning coffee and watched the people pile in the boats and head out to the whale sharks, my immediate reaction was “we are in a whale shark theme park”. I believe it’s become more about the peso than the whale shark. I can’t blame them for developing the tourism business, but is there a balance that can be reached? This has spawned a great deal of controversy.
Let's Wake Up an Eel and Go Hunting
Series: Marine Life. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,780. Language: English. Published: June 25, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Scuba & Snorkeling, Nonfiction » Science & Nature » Life Sciences / Marine Biology
While the majority of observations during the day are while eels are resting or on a cleaning station, a few times I have seen an eel coupled with a grouper. The first time I saw it was on the Winch Hole. A graysby came to a stop on a pile of rubble, and a goldentail came out from its lair. At first they just sort of looked at each other, then came cheek to cheek, touched, and took off together.
Kepler Newton and Einstein
Series: Gravitation, Book 23. Price: $5.95 USD. Words: 1,440. Language: English. Published: June 20, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Science & Nature » Gravity
How well do Newton’s and Einstein's theories explain Kepler’s observations of planetary orbits? Do Newton’s laws of motion apply in Newton’s gravitation? Are Kepler’s Newton’s and Einstein’s laws universal? Does Einstein's theory replace Newton's theory?
Hogfish Heaven?

Hogfish got their name because they root around the sea floor, like a hog roots around the barnyard. I have been following the size limit discussions for the last several years, and to me the essential point is this: if we don’t increase the size limit and let them grow another year or two, the chances of maintaining a sustainable fishery may be a huge issue in the future.
Jerusalem Crickets, the Child of the Earth

This relative of the cricket has been called ‘Woh-tzi-Neh’ by native Americans, which translates as "skull insect" or “old, bald-headed man.” Jerusalem Crickets attract attention because they’re large insects, and have a round, almost human-looking, baldhead: almost like a little baby face with a cricket body!

Astrofísica y Apologética

No hay que confundir “apologética” con disculpa o justificación. Significa explicar y defender la posición cristiana con argumentos lógicos. La apologética hoy tiene dos aspectos: uno es la comprensión muy tradicional de la apologética, y que responde a preguntas como: “¿por qué hay sufrimiento en el mundo si hay un Dios bueno?, o “¿cómo podemos reconciliar la ciencia con el cristianismo?”.
