RE: Today I Learned... TIL
Today I learned about the Tardigrade and what they eat. Did you know they are cannibals and they will probably survive until the end of the world?

From Wikipedia: Individual species of tardigrades can survive extreme conditions that would be rapidly fatal to nearly all other known life forms, including complete global mass extinction events due to astrophysical events, such as supernovae, gamma-ray bursts, large asteroid impacts, or passing-by stars.[10][11] Some tardigrades can withstand temperatures down to 1 K (−458 °F; −272 °C) (close to absolute zero) while others can withstand 420 K (300 °F; 150 °C)[12] for several minutes, pressures about six times greater than those found in the deepest ocean trenches, ionizing radiation at doses hundreds of times higher than the lethal dose for a human, and the vacuum of outer space.[13] They can go without food or water for more than 30 years, drying out to the point where they are 3% or less water, only to rehydrate, forage, and reproduce.[3][14][15][16] Tardigrades, living in harsh conditions, undergo an annual process of cyclomorphosis.

If there was ever life on other planets, chances are they still have organisms like the Tardigrade because of their ability to adapt to extreme conditions.

The biggest adults may reach a body length of 1.5 mm (0.059 in), the smallest below 0.1 mm. Newly hatched tardigrades may be smaller than 0.05 mm.

They are awesome and remind me of a very resilient creature, the naked mole rat.

Naked mole-rat
The naked mole-rat (Heterocephalus glaber), also known as the sand puppy[2] or desert mole rat, is a burrowing rodent closely related to the blesmols, native to parts of East Africa, and is the only species currently classified in the genus Heterocephalus.[3] The genus is classified as being in the family Bathyergidae or in its own family, Heterocephalidae. The naked mole-rat, the Damaraland mole-rat,[4] and Mechow's mole-rat[citation needed] are eusocial mammals, the highest classification of sociality. It has a highly unusual set of physical traits that enable it to thrive in an otherwise harsh underground environment; it is the only mammalian thermoconformer, almost entirely ectothermic (cold-blooded) in how it regulates body temperature.[5]

Naked mole-rat
Temporal range: Early Pliocene - Recent
Nacktmull.jpg
Conservation status

The mole rat lacks pain sensitivity in its skin, and has very low metabolic and respiratory rates. While formerly considered to belong to the same family as other African mole-rats, the Bathyergidae, more recent investigation places the naked mole-rat in a separate family, Heterocephalidae.[6][7][8] The mole rat is also remarkable for its longevity and its resistance to cancer and oxygen deprivation.

NMR survive without oxygen for 18 minutes

Naked mole-rats turn into plants when oxygen is low
Discovery could lead to treatments for heart attack, stroke

VIDEO: THE NAKED MOLE-RAT -- A COLD-BLOODED MAMMAL THAT CAN LIVE TO 30, RARELY GETS CANCER, AND DOESN'T FEEL PAIN -- METABOLIZES LIKE A PLANT WHEN OXYGEN IS LOW. view more

CREDIT: UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT CHICAGO

Deprived of oxygen, naked mole-rats can survive by metabolizing fructose just as plants do, researchers report this week in the journal Science.

Understanding how the animals do this could lead to treatments for patients suffering crises of oxygen deprivation, as in heart attacks and strokes.

"This is just the latest remarkable discovery about the naked mole-rat -- a cold-blooded mammal that lives decades longer than other rodents, rarely gets cancer, and doesn't feel many types of pain," says Thomas Park, professor of biological sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago, who led an international team of researchers from UIC, the Max Delbrück Institute in Berlin and the University of Pretoria in South Africa on the study.

In humans, laboratory mice, and all other known mammals, when brain cells are starved of oxygen they run out of energy and begin to die.

But naked mole-rats have a backup: their brain cells start burning fructose, which produces energy anaerobically through a metabolic pathway that is only used by plants - or so scientists thought.

Yuck. Those things are grotesque. Would love to squish them with my index finger and thumb, but they would probably be able to easily dodge my fingerprint grooves. Sick f*cks.

TIL A highschool friend was a member of the underwater team on the Amelia Earhart search expedition.

He was on my TV screen piloting the ROV on the science channel. I was like whoa that looks like someone I know.

Google search confirmed it!

He also ran the underwater search for the missing Malaysia plane.
