Plus, some fun picks from the Web. What we clicked on this week:
- The possibilities are infinite. But have you ever visualized what that would mean? A poetic, pensive short film by Paul Trillo gives shape to the multiverse in the form of a classic boy-meets-girl story. (via The Atlantic)
- Only the hardiest of life forms can survive the harsh conditions of outer space. One such organism is called a water bear. Before you picture a grizzly swatting a salmon out of a river, we'll stop you right there: It's actually a microscopic invertebrate, like the one pictured below. (via Nautilus)
