    10. Colliding Galaxies
    Thanks to gravity, the Milky Way galaxy, will someday either collide with or at least sideswipe its neighbor, Andromeda.
    The galactic merger, projected to occur around four billion years from now, will cause stars to move along new trajectories. Thankfully, they’re unlikely to smash into each other, due to the vast distance between them, and our solar system will probably remain unharmed by the event.

    9. Reindeer Cyclone
    While I know you’ve heard of hurricanes and cyclones, where massive winds rotate round and round, did you know that there are reindeer cyclones too? This is real, and they used to be a real threat to Viking hunters in the past. This phenomenon is a defensive strategy that reindeer use to confuse predators, making it difficult for the perceived threat, human or otherwise, to effectively target a single animal. Both wild and captive reindeer practice this behavior.

    8. Cannibalistic Bunker Ants
    In 2013, Polish scientists discovered a colony of up to a million wood ants that had been trapped in an abandoned nuclear bunker for years, with no food source other than their dead nestmates. There were also no signs of reproduction taking place, including no queens, larvae, or ant cocoons. Yet when the researchers returned to the site two years later, the population, which consisted only of worker ants, had somehow grown.

    7. Grasshopper Blizzard
    Who was in Las Vegas last year?? You probably will remember THIS. Last July, tens of thousands of grasshoppers invaded Las Vegas for several days, in a swarm so dense, it could be seen on weather radar! They crowded the strip and were stacking up at the entrances to the casinos! These were migrating pallid-winged grasshoppers and the invasion came after a particularly wet winter and spring in Nevada, which saw twice as much rainfall as usual.

    6. Earth’s Most Inaccessible Point
    There’s a place on our planet that sits in closer proximity to astronauts in space than to any humans on Earth. Point Nemo is the world’s most remote location -- in other words, the furthest point from land, giving a literal meaning to the term “the middle of nowhere.” Officially called the “oceanic pole of inaccessibility,” it’s surrounded by over 1,000 miles (1,609 km) of ocean in all directions.

    5. Earliest-Known Walking Animal
    Around 550 million years ago, during the Ediacaran Period, a segmented, millipede-like worm called Yilingia spiciformis died along the muddy ocean floor. Its remains and trail became fossilized and are the earliest-known evidence of an animal walking along the Earth’s surface.

    4. Mexico’s Hidden Beach
    Located at the mouth of Banderas Bay among the Marieta Islands, roughly 22 nautical miles west of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, is an island with a gaping hole in its surface containing a stunning beach called Playa del Amor, more commonly known as the Hidden Beach. Atlas Obscura describes it as “like something out of a fantasy novel: a wide, sandy cavern with the blue waters of the Pacific rushing in.”

    3. Bismuth
    Bismuth, element 83 on the periodic table, is a crystalline, white metal with various uses, including in cosmetics, alloys, fire extinguishers, and ammunition, and as the main ingredient in Pepto-Bismol. This brittle material is a post-transition metal, meaning it shares some characteristics with transition metals, but is softer, conducts more poorly, has unusually low thermal and electric conductivity, and has a lower melting point.

    2. A Microorganism That Can Survive In Space
    Tardigrades, also called moss piglets and water bears, are aquatic eight-legged creatures that reach a maximum length of one millimeter. There are over 1,000 species, and most live on moss or at the bottoms of lakes, where they feed on bacteria and plants.

    1. Pando
    Pando, or the Trembling Giant, is a grove of 47,000 quaking aspen trees in Utah all stemming from a single root system, thus constituting a single organism. The trees, which are genetically identical and reproduce asexually through a shared single root system, have been growing for at least 80,000 years. Pando spans 107 acres and weighs 6,615 tons.
