Giant 100 year old tortoise reproduced so much that he saved his entire species

Tortoise named Diego was among the 14 males selected to take part in a tortoise breeding program on the Santa Cruz Island in California, US. The program was turned successful due to Diego’s sex drive, by estimating being the father of 800 tortoises. Around 50 years ago, only two males and 12 females of Diego's species lived on Espanola and to save the species Diego was brought from California's San Diego Zoo. Src: https://bit.ly/30eOwNV

Researchers have created an 18-carat gold nugget using plastic

Leonie van 't Hag, a postdoc in the ETH lab headed by Raffaele Mezzenga, Professor of Food and Soft Materials has created a new form of gold that weighs about five to ten times less than traditional 18-carat gold. The conventional mixture is usually three-quarters gold and one-quarter copper, with a density of about 15 g/cm3. Miraculous lightness of the metal was achieved by using protein fibres instead of using metal alloys. The researchers can even adjust the hardness of the material by changing the composition of the gold. They can also replace the latex in the matrix with other plastics, such as polypropylene.
