Following a week of grainy pictures of posters, surprise villain appearances and teaser set photos, Sony and Columbia Pictures have released the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. With three villains — the Rhino, Electro and Green Goblin — appearing in the film, the trailer had a short amount of time to dedicate to so many adversaries, not to mention the star of the film. But it manages to give time to everyone, while offering at least a hint, if not a really good look, at what each character will look like on screen.

Oh look! Here’s that article I was talking about the other day!
These gorgeous 1871s illustrations for Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by artist Alphonse de Neuville are hauntingly reminiscent of Edward Gorey’s illustrations for H. G. Wells’s War of the Worlds.
Also see these stunning 1964 illustrations for the Verne biography The Man Who Invented the Future.

(Nature category) - A hermit crab (Pagurus anachoretus) on a calcareous tube of a feather duster worm (Sabella spallanzani), a marine annelid worm. It is easier for the crab to collect its food here, which is transported by the current. It’s very difficult to approach the worm without it closing quickly.
