MEXICO CITY (AP) — The Mexican government says fishermen found two rare conjoined gray whale calves that died shortly after being born.

Biologist Benito Bermudez says the whales were found alive in the Ojo de Liebre lagoon in the Baja California Peninsula but lived only a few hours.

Bermudez said Wednesday they were linked at the waist, with two full heads and tail fins.

Bermudez is a marine biologist with the National Natural Protected Areas Commission, or CONANP. He said scientists are collecting skin, muscle and baleen samples to study the creatures.

Every year more than 20,000 gray whales swim to Mexico from Alaska to mate and give birth.

Fishermen have found two conjoined gray whale calves in a northwestern Mexican lagoon, a discovery that a government marine biologist described as "exceptionally rare."

NASA’s Latest Amazing Photos Of Mars

10 07 2012

A handout of the European Space Agency ESA shows a visualisation of Mars, created from spacecraft imagery. ESA’s first mission to the Red Planet is Mars Express. It comprises an orbiter carrying seven scientific instruments to probe the planet’s atmosphere, structure and geology, including a search for evidence of hidden water. The main spacecraft will also release the UK’s small Beagle 2 lander to gather and test rock and soil samples on the surface. British space probe Beagle 2 failed to broadcast a signal on December 25, 2003, to confirm it had landed on Mars, but scientists said they were waiting for a second contact opportunity later on Thursday.

NASA has released amazing photos of Mars from its Rover named Opportunity.

From the photos we can see the panorama of Mars where Opportunity spent four-month of Martian winter.

Here are more amazing photos of Mars.

A TextureCam analysis of a Mars image is able to distinguish rocks from soil.

A close-up of the sunset on Sol 24 as seen by the Imager for Mars Pathfinder was released by the Jet Propulsion Labratory August 27. The red sky in the background and the blue around the Sun are approximately as they would appear to the human eye but the color of the Sun itself is not correct — the Sun was overexposed in each of the 3 color images that were used to make the picture. The true color of the Sun itself may be near white or slightly bluish.

This magnified look at the martian soil near the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity’s landing site, Meridiani Planum, shows coarse grains sprinkled over a fine layer of sand, in this image released by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, February 4, 2004. The image was captured on the 10th day of the rover’s mission by its microscopic imager and roughly approximates the color a human eye would see. Opportunity, NASA’s second of two roving Mars probes, rolled ten feet off its lander onto Mars on January 31.





Mr. Food

24 02 2010

Yesterday I was reading about food in my science book.

There was an instruction to draw our favorite food.

Suddenly I had an idea of how to draw my favorite food 💡

This is my drawing.

I call it Mr. Food 😉

Mr. Food is made out of food.

His face is an apple 🙂

His eyes and nose are grapes 😕

His ears are strawberries 😡

His hands and feet are ‘sambung nyawa'(Gynura procumbens) 😳

His body and hair are lettuces 😆

He is 0 years old.

Isn’t he cute
