Jellyfish receives tremendous public attention as box Jellyfish is considered as an organism laden with lethal toxic venom. Further, Recently researchers found that species of jellyfish are immortal. The human craving for immortality can possible is hidden within these mysterious creatures.

Box jellyfish sting can be extremely painful and lethal to the human. Lack of adequate understanding of the migratory behavior of this organism has caused the immense casualty. The weight of the box jellyfish can measure up to 2 kg and the length of the tentacles can go up to 3 meters.

Facts About the Box Jellyfish

1. Distribution

They are predominately found around the globe in warm coastal water. The lethal variety is found in Indo-pacific region.

2. Fatality

Due to potassium leakage in the body, there is the immediate cardiovascular collapse. The victim dies within two to five minutes. Due to the innate lethal venom, it is extremely difficult to do researchers in them. Normally, the lethal venom is used as the tool for catching fishes by the box jellyfish.

The eye consists of cornea, lenses, and retina. The true eye is found in jellyfish in contrast to other jellyfish. Twenty-four simple eyes are present in the box jellyfish to detect the light and darkness. Due to the absence of central nervous system coordination the mechanism behind how the image processing works in vague.

5. Well-developed Nervous System

The nervous system of the box jellyfish is well developed compared to other jellyfish.

6. Pray

Box jellyfish feed on the small fishes.

7. Predator

Sea turtles feed on the box jellyfish. The lethal venom of the box jellyfish has no effect on the Sea turtles.

8. Lifespan

The average lifespan of the box jellyfish is believed to be less than one year. Much research needs to done on the elusive species to precisely predict the lifespan.

9. Color

The color of the box jellyfish ranges from pale blue and transparent.

Metallic Hydrogen: Superconductor Discovery and Skeptics

Hydrogen is the first element of Group 1 of the periodic table and is abundant in nature. They have one proton and one elector. Freezing at 253-degree centigrade hydrogen become liquid and is widely used in Rocket fuel. Under normal atmospheric pressure hydrogen atom pair up to form the hydrogen molecule. The metallic property of the hydrogen is displayed when it loses the electron.
First Hypothesis on Metallic Hydrogen
The scientist named Eugene Wigner and Hillard Bell Huntington, the Princeton physicist hypothesized that massive pressure on the hydrogen turns it into the metal. This was hypothesized in the year 1935 (1). Until now there has not been any successful experiment to test this hypothesis.

Metallic Hydrogen Discovery
The Post-doctorate researcher Dr. Silvera and Ranga P. Dias has published the finding of metallic hydrogen in Journal science. The published journal claims that they have made metallic hydrogen by applying 495 Gigapascals pressure at the temperature -268-degr…
