A new study exploring shrimp and krill, a few centimeter long invertebrates with feathered legs, suggests these tiny sea dwellers can stir ocean waters rapidly fast when in clusters. Their effort adds to the impact of winds and waves and takes nutrient-ri
A rare photograph of a burial ceremony for a victim of the Titanic disaster is going up for auction this weekend, 106 years after the ill-fated ocean liner sank in the Atlantic, with more than 1,500 of its 2,224 passengers perishing.
