My ScienceSeeker editor’s picks for this week: The dying turkey edition
What this week’s list lacks in quantity, it makes up for in awesomeness and excellent writing:
Animal vision evolved 700 million years ago by Lucas Brouwers at Thoughtomics
On blind light-detectors and the humble beginnings of the animal eye.
Mycoplasma “Ghosts” Can Rise From the Dead by Jennifer Frazer at Artful Amoeba
You know what would be weird? If you could kill an organism until it was dead, empty out its guts until it’s just a hollow shell and then bring it back to ‘life’ again by adding ATP. Yeah, that would be weird.
