What If You Wore 100 Layers of Makeup?



Do you know what you’re putting on your skin? Makeup can highlight your best features, smooth out imperfections, and help you feel confident. And sometimes, you’re just too tired to wash it off before you go to bed. You could get away with this for one night without causing too much damage. But what if one night turns into two, then three, then four, and then 100 days go by, and you still haven’t taken your makeup off? What would you look like? Can makeup cause acne? Or cancer?

MBARI's Top 10 deep-sea animals

MBARI’s Top 10 deep-sea animals

The deep sea—Earth’s largest habitat—is home to a host of magical and mysterious animals. As we help our education and conservation partners at the Monterey Bay Aquarium prepare for the exhibit Into the Deep: Exploring Our Undiscovered Ocean, launching in 2022, they were curious to know which denizens of the deep are our favorites? With that question in mind, we gathered five of MBARI’s finest deep-sea biologists—Shannon Johnson, Kakani Katija, George Matsumoto, Bruce Robison, and Susan von Thun—and came up with a list of ten favorites. You might be surprised to see what made our list and what makes these creatures so lovable.

For more than three decades, MBARI researchers have been exploring the deep ocean with remotely operated vehicles, discovering fascinating ways that life in the deep sea has evolved to thrive in this dark, cold world. Our ocean is vast and full of things yet unseen. Every time we set out on an expedition, we are amazed by new observations and we are excited to share ten of those discoveries with you!

Human Skeleton under Different Situations (Use your Headphone)

Human Skeleton under Different Situations (Use your Headphone)

Humans have around 270 bones at birth, but they fuse together as we grow old. By the time we reach adulthood, the number of our bones goes down to 206 bones. The bones in our skeletons reach their maximum density around age 21.

Our bones do not only help us move, they provide us with structural support, protect our organs and help us produce red blood cells. They also act as a storage area for minerals, particularly calcium.
