We’ve heard of coral dying, but did anyone imagine that dead humans could be an inspiration to keeping reefs alive?
That’s just what’s been described in the National Geographic News story “‘Bodies’ Make Up Fake Coral Reef“. Statues of dead people were dropped into the sea to form the framework for living corals. This story and more than a hundred like it have been gathered into the new National Geographic book “Tales of the Weird: Unbelievable True Stories”. Drawing forom the most popular stories published online over the past decade, the book gathers oddball scientific research reported by National Geographic.
Heat-sensing vampire bats, zombie ants, and the albino cyclops shark are just a few examples of how the real world can be scary.
