army bivouac: nomadic ants build living castle

Army ants switch between living in a colony and being nomads in search of a new home. When in their travel mode, they need to protect their resting queen en route, so the colony’s soldiers stand on top of each other, interlocking their legs to form a structure that acts as a temporary nest. When daylight comes, the army moves on to new battlefields, consuming up to 500,000 creatures per day on the way. The brave photographer here was nominated in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition for this image, taken in Costa Rica. WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR, Photo // Daniel Kronauer…

plasma on parade: vast red sprites haunt the sky

They tower high in the sky, like huge jellyfish with extended tentacles. These red sprites appear above active thunderclouds and can grow up to 100km high. But they light up the sky for only a few milliseconds, so it has proven an almost impossible task to capture good photos of this mysterious phenomenon. The red sprites consist of ionised plasma, and they are triggered by powerful electric charges in the thunderclouds, from where the flashing light cascades downwards for those few milliseconds in an electrical avalanche.…

red spread: scientists are learning to farm on mars

With water such a scarce resource on Mars, the surface offers nowhere near the nutrient-rich environment that plants enjoy on Earth. Several research projects are developing crop-growing methods that could feed future Martians. Scientists from the Czech University of Agriculture have produced this system in which plants are sprayed with nitrogen-based nutrients, with all water reused. The project could also benefit farmers who are facing increasing shortages of water here on Earth. EPA/RITZAU SCANPIX, Photo // Martin Divisek…
