Deep under the sea, near the Channel Islands several miles off the coast of California, marine scientists noticed a glowing purple orb hiding in the shadows. They zoomed in on the creature with an underwater robot camera — and were completely mystified. They had never seen anything like this before.

“I’m stumped,” you can hear one of the scientists say in the video below, as they watch a live feed. “I have no idea. I couldn’t even hazard a guess.”

In the video, you can hear the scientists — part of the ocean research vessel (click on the title to see the full article).

The US made a “declaration of war” by putting the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un on a sanctions blacklist, Pyongyang has claimed.

Taking the action, Washington accused the dictator of overseeing widespread human rights abuses, which had made the isolated communist state “among the world’s most repressive countries”.

In response, North Korea severed its official lines of communication with the US and said dealings between the two nations must (click on the title to read the full article).

Mountain

What do you give a country that has 188,000 lakes for a birthday present? Its highest mountain back, obviously.

Norway’s government has confirmed that for the centenary of Finland’s independence next year it is considering moving the border, gifting its Nordic neighbour a mountain peak that would be the country’s highest point.

“There are a few formal difficulties and I have not yet made my final decision,” the Norwegian prime minister, Erna Solberg, told NRK, the national broadcaster. “But we are looking into it.”

At 1,324 metres above sea level, the highest point in Finland currently lies on (click on the title to read the full article).

Scientists say a dead whale on a desolate beach and a skeleton hanging in a high school gym are a new species. Yet experts have never seen one alive.

Like many good mysteries, this one started with a corpse, but the body in question was 24 feet (7.3 meters) long.

The remains floated ashore in June of 2014, in the Pribilof Islands community of St. George, a tiny oasis of rock and grass in the middle of Alaska’s Bering Sea. A young biology teacher spotted the carcass half-buried in sand on a desolate windswept beach. He alerted a former fur seal researcher who presumed, at first, that she knew what they’d found: a Baird’s beaked whale, a large, gray, deep-diving creature that occasionally washes in dead with the tide.

But a closer examination later showed that the flesh was (Click on the title to see the full article).
