g Life - Not long after sunrise, these endangered seahorses in Broome, Australia, start slow dancing to demonstrate their attraction in a graceful courtship ritual – and up to three days later, they’re still going strong. See article.
g Cosmicus - A six-member crew has been selected for participation in a simulated Mars mission that will help determine the best way to keep astronauts nourished during long duration missions to Mars or the Moon. See article.
