Several previously unknown, alien-like creatures, including a hairy-chested crab, reside in a deep-sea vent in the Indian Ocean, a team of biologists discovered.

The first Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) exploration of the Longqi vent field, which is called “Dragon’s Breath” in Mandarin, revealed half-dozen previously unknown species of snail and deep-sea worms like limpet, as well as the hairy-chested Hoff crab (Kiwa).

NASA video shows CO2’s concentration in Earth’s atmosphere

U.S. space agency NASA has released the first-of-its-kind 3D visualization of carbon dioxide's (CO2's) concentration in Earth's atmosphere.

This new visualization shows how the heat-trapping gas appears in the atmosphere. The gas has been showed as winds of red, blue and yellow whisking around our planet. Each color stands for a different concentration of the gas, with red and blue representing the highest and the lowest levels of the gas, respectively.
