Recep Alçamli is a chemical engineering student in Turkey who uses his free time to carve awesomely tiny and exquisitely detailed sculptures on the graphite tips of pencils. Alçamli’s impressive skill places him in the excellent company of artists such as Dalton Ghetti, cerkahegyzo, Pete Goldlust and Diem Chau (all previously featured here).

Head over to Recep Alçamli’s Facebook page to check out more of his amazing pencil sculptures.

Lenticular clouds over Mount Fuji, Japan. These are stationary lens-shaped clouds that form at high altitudes, usually perpendicular to the direction of the wind.

These Bacteria Are Wired to Hunt Like a Tiny Wolf Pack
There is an elaborate stealth communication network in the Earth beneath your feet. This smart web acts like a superorganism, fortifying defensive capabilities and coordinating deadly attacks on unsuspecting targets. But it’s not run by the NSA, the CIA, or the military. This web is made of bacteria.
A team of scientists led by Manfred Auer at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have used cutting-edge 3-D microscopy to identify a new mechanism for bacterial networking. They observed elaborate webs of a common soil bacterium, Myxococcus xanthus, connected by thread-like membranes. This system of cellular pipelines suggests that some bacteria have evolved complex ways to deliver molecular cargo out of sight from snooping neighbors. Their work appears in the journal Environmental Microbiology.
