Amber Dinosaur Tail

Researchers at a Hukawng Valley amber mine in Myanmar have discovered an amber nugget containing the first preserved dinosaur tail covered in feathers. It's believed to come from a small, sparrow-sized dinosaur - likely a carnivorous coelurosaurus, which is part of a group that includes the Tyrannosaurus Rex - that went extinct approximately 99 million years ago. This part of the tail is from the tail bone, measuring just 2 millimeters across. The team believes that the top of the feathers were dark brown in color, while the underside could have been colorless. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Huntington Beach, California residents got a bizarre surprise while strolling their local beach: thousands of gelatinous pink sea creatures. They're described as being squishy, almost like a jellyfish, and have baffled National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientists.

Homemade Airplane

Frantisek Hadrava, a 45-year-old locksmith from the Czech Republic, hated driving 14-minutes to work every day. So, he decided to build an airplane - based on the Mini-Max planes - to cut his commute time in half. "It takes me about 12-14 minutes by car. By plane, it would take around 4-5 minutes if I flew directly, but I take a bit of a detour so that I don't disturb people early in the morning. So it takes about 7 minutes," said Hadrava.
