The diving bell spider uses surface tension and a little bit of web-gineering to build a bubble to allow it to live and exchange gases underwater. Click here to read more (as well as see a cool slideshow). Here’s a video:
How does water behave in zero gravity? Let’s find out at the international space station (this is really good):

Dear steven, thanks a lot for developing this site. i have been using it for the past three years and i feel every time time when i prepare my lessons using your site, i feel im learning more. thanks a lot
I really appreciate all your work on this site. I am a newbie to the whole IB program. Your site is my new top bookmark!
Thanks for the comment. I followed the link to your own blog and will read it with some interest – I am now teaching mostly MYP Grade 10 Physics (and some Chem and IB Bio).
I don’t know how to thank you, seriously. I’m an IB Student and this site is by far the best!
I have my exam tomorrow, I am hopeful that I’ll do well!
You have been such a help, especially for a new IB teacher like me …. I feel that there is so much more to learn still….that’s why we are lifelong learners and hope our students also be the same.. Thank you for sharing the humongous resources.
Thanks for the lovely comment – and good luck!
I am a 12th grade student taking bio.
I used to hate biology a lot. My grades were really bad, but I didn’t even try to make them better…. but thanks to this site, I really like bio now. I’ve been looking at your site for reviewing for tests, and I’m an A student now!
Thank you for making this site!
That’s great to hear, May – good luck in your studies and thank-you for the lovely comment!
