squid stories

 
Nature was cool enough to endow squid and octopi with measures to change their colors to hide from predators. They do it through sensitive pigment and light reflecting cells called chromatophores. Now, add a dash of modern science and hip hop as the stimuli for these cells and you'll get to see an squid light show that could blow your mind.
 
It's a momentous occasion for cephalopods everywhere as the first ever squid in space is now, uh, in space. The celebration will be short lived, however, as NASA plans to have the astronauts about Endeavour kill the squid in just a matter of hours, before it can break out of its tube of seawater and turn the battle lasers of the ISS on us. Or something.
