The building blocks of a water-rich world?
One day in the very distant future, our sun will burn out and collapse. And whenever that happens, there's a fair chance that it will evolve into a white dwarf star -- a small but incredibly dense burned-out star. As a white dwarf star with tremendous gravity, our sun would begin stripping all of the elements away from the solar system's inner planets, sucking their mass onto itself like a stellar vacuum cleaner. That's how white dwarfs grow.

Although this star is millions of years younger than our sun, it's already in a much later stage of its life, giving us a clue to what will happen to our sun in the future.

Sponges recycle resources for the reef
For years, researchers have tried to explain how coral reef communities -- some of the most productive ecosystems in the world -- can thrive in waters that don't have any nutrients. Somehow, these diverse ecosystems can grow very well in the marine equivalents of a desert -- a mystery that has become known as "Darwin's Paradox."
