Anglerfish aren't the prettiest creatures. Their large heads, beady little eyes, fang-like teeth and long, bioluminescent whisker-like filaments make them look more like space monsters than something dwelling in the deepest part of the sea. Now, thanks to wildlife filmmakers Kirsten and Joachim Jakobsen, you can see the first footage of the Caulophryne jordani species engaged in their bizarre mating ritual. The husband-wife team was traveling near Portugal's Azores Islands on behalf of the Rebikoff-Niggeler Foundation research group when they filmed their video at depth of 2,600 feet (about 792 meters) back in August 2016. It was released to the public for the first time Thursday.

Mobile technologies have been the driving force for ever faster and better computer technologies for the past two decades. Faster and smaller chips, display technologies, and wireless communications are all able to function on tiny amounts of electric power drawn from ever more advanced batteries. In a future that is very much going to be stay-at-home and work-from-home , these costly mobile technologies are nice to have, but they aren't essential. The home has plenty of electric power. There is always a plug nearby. Yet every single laptop component has to be specially made to operate on battery power, and the main mobile chips have to be made in advanced chip fabs costing as much as $3 billion each. latest developments Coronavirus: Business and technology in a pandemic From cancelled conferences to disrupted supply chains, not a corner of the global economy is immune to the spread of COVID-19.
