Biologists found the deep-sea octopus in the world

Scientists discovered in the Indian ocean octopus at a depth of 6957 meters and it is the greatest recorded depth for cephalopods.

Marine biologist Alan Jamieson in his expedition into the depths of the Indian ocean in April 2019 could not see the octopus from the submersible. So was amazed when I came back to the surface and I saw the footage with free-running cameras. The photo was the Dumbo octopus with fins above the eyes, similar to lugs. Up to this maximum recorded depth of their habitat was 5145 meters the expedition that discovered them 50 years ago off the coast of Barbados.

The detection of the Dumbo octopus to new depths in itself is amazing and expands the potential area of their habitat is up to 99 percent of the seabed. But since biologists have found that octopus at greater depths and in the Indian ocean – most likely, we are dealing with a brand new look. But to determine this accurately, you need to catch him live representative, and it is very difficult to do. For this you need special equipment, because the creatures living at this depth, absolutely not adapted to lower pressure on the surface.

Physicists have learned to turn plastic bottles in supercapacitors

Scientists from the University of California, riverside have developed a technology to produce components for supercapacitors from regular waste. We are talking about polyethylene terephthalate or PET, which is made most of plastic bottles. This material is from an economic point of view is significantly superior to high-tech raw materials, like graphene or carbon nanotubes. […]
