Welcome to the third week of Fly Away Fridays!  The last two weeks I told you about hanging out in Aberystwyth and Liverpool . Photograph by Juliane Gregor from The Story of the Weeping CamelBotok, a rare white camel, was rejected by his mother at birth. Meerkat sentinels scan their surroundings—both land and sky—for danger.Meerkat clans are divided into sentries and foragers. Two meerkat pups—about three weeks old—emerge from the safety of their den.Young meerkats are highly curious and are constantly exploring their surroundings.
A meerkat stands guard and scans the Kalahari landscape while watching over the clan’s young.It is common for female meerkats to leave their pups with a caretaker in order to venture out into the Kalahari and hunt. Meerkats are very attentive, and a guard like this one will give the call that danger is approaching long before it arrives. A meerkat takes in the day’s last rays of sun before returning to its den for the night.Meerkats only hunt during daytime. Meerkats inspect a 3D camera rig used for Meerkats 3D while crew members conduct a camera test.
Meerkats 3D is now playing in select areas, and more theaters will be added throughout the year.
Proceeds from the sale of film tickets help further National Geographic’s nonprofit mission to increase global understanding through education, research, and conservation. FEI is a world leader in the production of electron microscopes (think: seeing things at the nano-scale) and is partnering with Nat Geo Entertainment on the upcoming film, Mysteries of the Unseen World.
Every year FEI holds a photo contest to find out what folks in the field are doing with their amazing microscopes, and to give scientists and researchers the chance to share their exploration of the sub-microscopic world.
Check out the photos first and see if you can guess what you are seeing, then look at the caption to find out what you are really seeing!
Brilliant color differentiates the zones of a slice of Cretaceous sedimentary rock from Snow Hill Island in Antarctica.
Hepatitis B virus pops from the screen thanks to a 3D overlay, the worrisome subject appearing like a deceptively cute obstacle course in a video game.
The pollen spores of a cutleaf geranium (Geranium dissectum) jut out, as if eager to fulfill their mission. An egg of the Aedes aegypti mosquito (sometimes called the "yellow fever mosquito") hovers like a spaceship on a black background.

Near a hair root barging through like a tree trunk, a tiny cluster of pollen grains clings to the graceful, swirling texture of a spider's skin. An aphid examines a poplar leaf, its surroundings made to look like a dreamy landscape of blue sky and never-ending green, perfect for this species' voracious appetite. Infinitesimal grains of starch are scattered like pebbles inside the cells of a cracked kernal of corn. Tungsten filament coils, like the one shown here, have been used in incandescent light bulbs since the early 1900s. In addition to providing a soft carpet for barefoot summer walks, moss, pictured here, helps limit the amount of methane gas released into Earth's atmosphere by providing a home for the methane-consuming bacteria that live inside it. In this dramatic encounter inside a human liver, an immune cell (green) battles an invading parasite, trypanosomes.
Silver clusters deposited by thermal evaporation onto self-assembled polystyrene nano-spheres gild the sheres, transforming them into a dappled universe of invisible worlds. Go to places on the planet you've never been before and see things that are beyond your normal vision yet are literally right in front of your eyes.
A film crew spent July 21 - 25 at the desert base here filming high-altitude, night-vision and 'brownout' training, during which pilots prepare for landing in the sands of Afghanistan. While a few individuals guard the group, the rest forage for the foods that make up their varied diet. Gregarious creatures, they are often seen in groups, and several families may live together in a large community.Meerkats are mongooses and are about the size of squirrels.
A sharp, shrill call is the signal for all to take cover.Adult meerkats are about 12 inches tall, and the hostile environment of the Kalahari is a constant challenge for them. Meerkats can only survive as a team—they rely on cooperation and operate in groups most of the time. By 12 weeks of age, they are already capable of feeding themselves, but they can become exhausted by the intense heat. Babysitters take their jobs very seriously and are ready to lay down their lives to protect the young.
Fathers and siblings help raise the young, teaching them to play and forage, and alerting them to the ever-present danger from above.
At night, or when seeking relief from the heat, meerkat groups utilize several different burrows and move from one to another.

After slow and careful habituation by the filmmakers, the meerkats became accustomed to their presence.
A whole new world is open to us thanks to FEI and other cutting-edge technology creators, as you will see in Mysteries of the Unseen World. The zebrafish is a model organism currently being used for studies into the genetic causes of neurodegeneration.
Aphids are widespread around the globe and feed on trees, garden plants, crops, and, seemingly, anything. Originating in Africa, Aedes aegypti is now found in tropical and subtropical regions throughout the world.
Tungsten is a metal with an extremely high melting point and generous electrical and mechanical properties, and it can readily be formed into filament coils. Each side bears an impressive arsenal of chemical weapons—the outcome of the war will determine whether the host develops sleeping sickness. The rescue being featured in the documentary is the one in which 920th Rescue Wing helicopters rescued ex-Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell was rescued after the rest of his SEAL team were killed. They are famed for their upright posture—they often stand on their rear legs and gaze alertly over the southern African plains where they live. With little fat reserves, meerkats must perform successful daily hunts in order to survive.
Young meerkats are so fearful of predatory birds that even airplanes will send them diving for cover. Each burrow is an extensive tunnel-and-room system that remains cool even under the broiling African sun. These are the best images from four categories: Around the House, The Natural World, The Human Body, and Other Relevant Science.
Luttrell wrote about the order in his novel, "Lone Survivor." In addition to combat search and rescue, the 920th provides civilian search and rescue, humanitarian relief and emergency rescue and medical support for every NASA shuttle and rocket launch.
