why did you have to show me this op? I pissed off so many wasps and bees when I was ten.

A lot of these things tend to be stretched in terms of how accurate they are.

Does NO ONE ELSE find it utterly terrifying that paper wasps and honeybees can recognize your face? That scares me shitless, that means there are hundreds of evil flying death needles waiting for me to show my face again.

I'm confused as to how no one had ever noticed a second set of vocal chords in koalas? Like what the fuck? Have they never been dissected before or did some idiot just move the first set out of the way and was like "yo shit jerry, theres another one"?

I love it when people provide the source.

How is it that taking a picture of an exoplanet is so damn difficult, but recognizing they have water is easy?

I'm actually curious...
#132 to #122 - vgmddg (12/09/2013) [-]
Every type of atom and molecule has certain wavelengths of light that they either absorb or reflect. Using that fact They can find out what elements are likely on that planet based on what wavelengths are reflected back.
Taking a high quality picture of a far away planet is usually really hard though, because in all likelihood it's really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really far away, and half the time it's behind the star it's orbiting.
