Not to scare you, but you’re getting hit with radiation constantly. First, there’s just regular old light (yep, that’s a kind of radiation). Then there are low levels of higher energy radiation like the kind in nuclear reactors, including particles coming out of the soil and off of bananas. But the highest-energy radiation is the weirdest stuff. It’s literally out of this galaxy.
It sounds like a cute wordplay: starstruck by the moonstruck, and while it of course is, it also has a lot of truth in it. The Ulysse Nardin Executive Moonstruck Worldtimer is one of those watches to leave any watch enthusiast in awe, especially when they are into astronomical complications.

With skin slaked with enough of the potently neurotoxic batrachotoxin (BTX) to kill a staggering 20,000 mice, the golden poison frog somehow doesn’t poison itself. A team of scientists have now pinpointed how the frogs survive their lethal secretions: a single genetic mutation that results in full immunity to BTX.
