Evolution, as we all probably know, is the change of attributes and features of a species over a long period of time. Everything around us evolves steadily, no matter what it is. Our shape, body parts, and measurements have all transformed, including our DNA, and it all gradually gave us new features. Since we are aware of how we’ve evolved from the past, there are some new theories that indicate how we might look in the future.

Some of nature’s creations are so bizarre that we often find ourselves wondering whether we saw an insect or a weirdly-shaped flower — or if we saw a wolf, a fox, or a deer. The bottom line is: evolution doesn’t play by the rules, and it surely enjoys breaking our expectations.

It’s clear that our body did not get to look the way it does today without some kind of change. As you might know, it’s actually the result of years and years of what we call evolution. Because our ancestors changed their daily habits in order to adapt to some changes in their environment, throughout the years their body responded by adapting to their new needs. Ever since prehistoric times, it has not stopped evolving, changing, and adapting. But the funny thing is that no matter how much time has passed, there are still some parts of our body that are not very useful for us with our current lifestyle. What they really do, is reveal tons of information about our past...

You travel along the coast of the North Atlantic. In your jeep, you’re driving through the jungles and plains, taking amazing pictures of wildlife for your blog. And then you accidentally come upon a place that isn’t marked on any map. It’s a bay with an azure coast. No human has ever set foot here.You’ve discovered a huge footprint of an unknown creature on the sandy beach. The size of the print is more than half of your vehicle. Suddenly, out of the tropical forest that borders with the beach, you hear a deafening roar. Palm trees crack and break as an unknown monster comes out of the jungle. To understand what it is, let’s go back to the past.

You run through the night forest for more than an hour. You’re even faster than a cheetah. You’re not tired or cold. You hear a mouse rustling in the roots of a tree and catch all the smells of the forest. With night vision, you see a bird in the night sky. You can go for months without food or water. Gills allow you to swim underwater freely. This is how evolution made humans in a parallel world. Here, they’re ideal organisms prepared for anything they might meet in the wild.

While the original members of the Stranger Things Season 4 cast were indeed children when the series first premiered in 2016, significant transformations have occurred in their lives since then. Millie Bobby Brown has ventured into the world of literature as a novelist, Sadie Sink has graced the screen in an award-winning film, and Finn Wolfhard has not only acted but also taken on the roles of writer and director in his own movie. Their maturation is so pronounced that portraying Eleven, Mike, Will, Dustin, Lucas, and Max as convincing high schoolers in Season 5 of Netflix’s popular sci-fi adventure might require some Hollywood magic, or perhaps even the assistance of artificial intelligence. Let’s explore the remarkable evolution of these actors from the early years of the show to the present.

Some strange seismic activity begins all over the world. Volcanoes on the planet are waking up. But instead of lava, fiery stones, and black ash, they release an invisible gas that slowly fills the atmosphere. This gas is safe for all mammals and insects, but for some reason, it harms people. Gas masks, medications — nothing helps. It’s like Earth says: “Hey, people, I’ve had enough! Get out of here.” To survive, humanity decides to move to a place where gas can’t reach — underwater.

When we look at creatures in the animal kingdom, we often have the following thought: if they have similar traits, they must be related somehow. Zebras, horses, and camels must have some common ancestor. The same goes for dogs and jackals: somewhere back in their lineage, they must have some common great-great-great grand...wolf, right? Well, the way evolution works in nature is way more complex. Take, for instance, convergent evolution, which is when different creatures evolve independently of each other but end up having similar traits.

Did you know that humans are real space people? You were born in Space. Heck, even I was born in Space. We all were born in Space! But for humans to be here on Earth, so many conditions have to be precisely correct that it is highly improbable that we even exist. But we do. First, we — and any other space creatures who might be out there — have to live on a planet orbiting a yellow-ish white star, not a red star or a blue star. Not a blue star because they burn out too quickly — in a few million years — there wouldn’t be time for evolution to do its relatively slow magic and produce intelligent beings. Blue stars also tend to swell up and turn red — when they collapse and explode! It makes it highly unlikely that any civilization could prosper near a blue star.

Ever wondered what it would be like to hear the sound of a black hole? NASA has got you covered. Here is a screaming black hole. “Screaming, in space?” I thought in space, no one can hear you scream. Well, let me explain. Using a telescope, NASA examined the movements of hot gas in a cluster of galaxies in 2002. Then they converted what they found into a sonification. The sound — how should I put it politely — wasn’t appealing, but that’s okay. After all, you’re able to hear the noise hot gas produces in a cluster of galaxies 250 million light-years away. Hey, would you like to hear the sound gas produces right here on Earth? Uh, never mind.

Your feet are home to around 7,000 nerve endings. They have to be this sensitive to keep you balanced and not flip over. All those nerves constantly send information to your brain. It uses more power to process it than on the data from your entire torso. So, when anything happens to your feet, like extra pressure, change of temperature or stepping on something sharp like Legos — it really hurts a lot!

Humans have tails. Okay, that sounds weird, I know. But it’s true. While our bodies are still forming in the womb, at around day 31 to 35, you can really start to see it. Right now, you have a tail! It’s inside you. It’s part of your coccyx, to be more precise. If you were to have an X-ray right now and asked the doctor to show you your tail, you’d see some small bony segments at the bottom of your spinel. We lost our tails over decades of evolution. Imagine if we still had our tails, they’d have to redesign pants. Maybe they’d have a special hole or even a tail pocket. Sitting might be a bit uncomfortable, too, to say the least.
