Scientists have discovered and cataloged over 800,000 insects worldwide! On top of that, somewhere between 7,000 to 10,000 new insects are discovered each year. And, most scientists believe that there are anywhere from 1,000,000 to an amazing 10,000,000 new insects in the world still waiting to be discovered
Mystery of bubbles solved!
While bubbles and foamy materials are common in everyday life, scientists have struggled to model suds’ complicated behavior — the way clusters of bubbles grow, change shape and ultimately pop.
Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley have created a series of equations that model how foamy clusters evolve, based on their examination of shape-shifting soap bubbles.
So why does it matter if we understand how bubbles work? Understanding and predicting bubble behavior is important because the production of chemicals we rely on, such as flame-retardants, involves froths and foams.

Baby chameleon hatches from an egg; chameleons are oviparous (develop in an external egg, like chicken) and lay 30 to 40 eggs, which are deposited on the ground, in a burrow dug by the mother, about a year later, the chameleons hatch, and live from 4 to 5 years.
