Penguins Hiding Under Sushi Shop Refrigerator Arrested By New Zealand Police

Fresh from being robbed of the men’s cricket world cup, New Zealanders are facing another attempted theft, but are finding it hard to be too mad at the most recent miscreants, a pair of repeat offending penguins looking to clean out a sushi store in the nation’s capital.

Their walk may be adorable, but it’s a much less efficient method of transport than swimming, so they usually stay close to the shore. In particular, crossing a busy road would usually be a bridge too far for the smallest members of the penguin family. However, in …

Why the heat index matters more than the temperature in this heat wave

(CNN)Checking the temperature reading during this weekend’s heat wave won’t tell the whole sweltering story. It’s going to feel a lot hotter. So, Chicago — with a predicted temperature Friday of 98 degrees Fahrenheit and relative humidity of 58% — can expect it to feel like 118 degrees, she said. And Washington’s forecast temperature of 98 degrees, with relative humidity of 45%, will make it feel like 109. And that’s not even in the sun. “When we, as meteorologists, forecast the high temperatures or the heat index, that is in the shade,” Brink said. “The sun definitely makes it worse.” In “direct sunlight, the heat index value can be increased by up to 15 degrees Fahrenheit,” according to the National …

Divers Capture Incredible Footage Of Human-Size Jellyfish

Dan Abbott and Lizzie Daly were diving in the Celtic Sea when they swam into a monster of a sea creature – the giant barrel jellyfish (Rhizostoma pulmo) cruising along the Cornish coast, in the UK, was roughly the size of a singular human. Fortunately for us, the encounter was captured on film by Abbott, an underwater cinematographer, while wildlife biologist and presenter Daly swam alongside the jellyfish to put the size of the creature into perspective. The giant barrel jellyfish is the largest species of jellyfish to visit British waters and can grow up to 90 centimeters (2.9 feet) wide – making it roughly equivalent in size to a dustbin (UK-speak for trash can) lid.

A WIRED Booklovers Guide to the Moon

This story is part of a series commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. Humanity had yet to set foot on the moon in 1968, but Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke were already envision­ing commercial space liners and a lunar research base on the big screen. Like many sci-fi films, 2001: A Space Odyssey undershot the timeline a bit. It’s been nearly 48 years since human beings last left low-Earth orbit to visit the moon’s surface, but if you’ve sensed a resurgence in spacebound hopefulness, you’re not a lunatic. At the annual meeting of the National Space Council in March, Vice President Mike Pence directed NASA to return to the moon within the next five years, and …
