The water that supports life on Earth may have been on the planet much earlier than scientists previously thought, new research suggests.

While the environmental conditions in Earth's early years made it impossible for water to remain on the planet's surface, scientists have found evidence that the ingredients for water were protectively stored inside rocky bodies near our planet — and maybe inside Earth itself. The new findings suggest that there was water in the inner solar system 135 million years earlier than previous evidence had shown.

These Students Make the Coolest Chalk Art, Because Why Not?

A group of anonymous students calling themselves DangerDust make these cool chalk drawings at Ohio's Columbus College of Art & Design. Some of the designs can take an upwards of 11 hours to complete, but the results are totally worth it.

Hat tip goes to Laughing Squid!

The printer, dubbed Braigo (short for Braille with Lego), was created from the Lego Mindstorms EV3 set, which retails for $349. Banerjee also added $5-worth of additional materials, which means the finished product costs about $350. This makes Braigo much more affordable than other Braille printers, which can retail for more than $2,000, according to Banerjee.
