If you weren’t questioning your place in the world already, you probably will be when you see how these high school students just stepped into uncharted scientific territory with an egg and a plastic cup.
While we’re over here just doing our thing and getting by, these three students from Japan went ahead and hatched a chicken egg…without the actual egg.
As their teacher Mr. Tahara explained, “Through a clear container, we’ll be able to see everything from the first signs of life to the hatching.” They suspended a raw egg inside a clear cup with plastic wrap and placed it in an incubator, and in the end, they were left with an adorable little chick!
Their research has been published in scientific journals around the world, and the rest of us are worthless.
Look at that little nugget go!

The concept is to create a network of high altitude balloons for data sharing in areas that fiber optic cables just aren’t cost effective. Using the Stratosphere’s consistent wind patterns, the balloons can be ‘steered’ per say into the the correct positioning.
Users simply use a special Internet antenna to connect and ‘talk’ to the balloons in the sky, which in turn talk to other balloons, which talk to an Internet service provider.
