Megamouth Shark (video)

Megamouth sharks - Megachasma pelagios - are one of rarest types of shark in the world despite being large, growing to at least 5.5m in length. The first specimen was discovered in 1976 by the U.S. Navy. To date, only 55 sightings of this shark have been confirmed. Megamouth sharks spend daylight hours near the edge of the continental shelf, swimming slowly at depths of 150 m or deeper. At night time it rises close to the surface to feed on  plankton. They swim along with their mouth open, filtering plankton from the water as it passes through their gills. The other two filter-feeding shark species are whale sharks and basking sharks. Like these other filter-feeding sharks, megamouth sharks only have small teeth. Megamouth sharks are also able to thrust out their jaws (called protrusible jaws). Megamouth sharks have soft bodies with large oily livers, flabby muscles and skeletons that are poorly calcified. These features help megamouth sharks to swim at a slow pace without sinking. DNA studies suggest that megamouth sharks are the most primitive of sharks of the Order Lamniformes, the group which includes white pointer, mako, basking and grey nurse sharks.

"Some people don’t get science. They think it is boring. Some people, they think it is boring. They think it’s full of boffins who think they know it all. It’s not like that. Scientists don’t think they know it all. It’s idiots who think they know it all, isn’t it? Scientists are the people who think they don’t know enough. That is why they are scientists because they want to know more at every turn. And every modern scientist, all the greats, they are standing on the shoulders of giants.
What happens is one scientist come up with an idea and all the others go, bloody hell, that’s brilliant. Hey I wonder what would happen if… that’s where their idea comes from."

I know you read fantasy but do you read science fiction? If yes what are you favorite books, authors?

I have a list of science fiction books that I am meaning to read.  I remember reading Christopher Pike books when I was younger (some of his work is science fiction, some of it is not…) and loving them.  There are so many books and not nearly enough time to read them. :(

"A single ray of light from a distant star falling upon the eye of a tyrant in bygone times, may have altered the course of his life, may have changed the destiny of nations, may have transformed the surface of the globe, so intricate, so inconceivably complex are the processes of nature."

Testing if some small vials were quartz or glass. Quartz transmits UV light, whereas glass will block it. I need quartz vials for an experiment involving photodegradation.

I've had male friends in engineering/computing sciences tell me tell me that I went into biology because it's the "softest" science and that I couldn't do what they do.

Ugh.

Its sad that this kind of attitude is still so prevalent. The concept of a field of science as more manly or that could be only done by a man needs to be destroyed. Gender roles make me upset. :(

I try my best not to think like this, but I’ll admit this mindset slips through once in a while. I try not to think like this because it happens in almost every STEM field.

I’ve even considered switching to pure physics instead of going for an astrophysics undergrad degree because I’ve had male colleagues tell me astro is popular among women for being the easiest physics. Screw that.

I just ignore that mindset and remember that “easiness” is subjective, and while there are “hard” and “soft” sciences and even though I’m considered to be in a “hard” science I can’t for the life of me remember biological concepts.
