A spokesperson for the tech giant said the iPod redefined how music is discovered and listened to, and that its spirit lives on. Pictured are various iPod models – the original released in 2001 , the iPod Mini range and the seventh generation iPod Touch , the final iPod model ever to be released. Gerard Butler, Paris Hilton and YouTuber Zoe Sugg are just a few of the famous faces who have shared their lives with pugs. We are on a mission to inspire people of all ages to explore and understand the world around them, to discover and enjoy science and to see the relevance it has in their everyday lives.

Our Unibuddy ambassadors can answer all the questions you might have about courses and studying at Strathclyde, along with offering insight into their experiences of life in Glasgow and Scotland. Named Charlie, the green bean stick insect from Waldringfield, Suffolk, is the ‘first reported gynandromorph’ in that species according to experts at London’s Natural History Museum.

Measuring about 30ft long, the fossilised remains of Thanatosdrakon amaru were discovered in the Andes mountains in Argentina’s western Mendoza province. Researchers said the ‘beast’ would likely have been a frightening sight as it hunted its prey from prehistoric skies. It is estimated the fearsome species lived at least 20 million years before an asteroid impact on what is now Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula wiped out about three-quarters of life on the planet 66 millions years ago.

China’s Yutu-2 rover has spotted two intact spheres of translucent glass up to an inch thick on the far side of the moon, according to researchers from Guangzhou who described the new finding. Pipistrelle bats living in a north Shropshire attic were found entangled on the spider’s web below the entrance to the roost, researchers in Galway, Ireland, report. Although having prominent cheekbones makes people more likely to become an entrepreneur, it has no bearing on whether they will be a successful one, according to University of Cyprus-led researchers.

Sibling cannibalism is surprisingly common in larvae of the wasp species Isodontia harmandi, according to researchers at Kobe University in Japan. University of Cambridge-led researchers uncovered evidence of the eggs of parasitic worms in humans living at Durrington Walls, a Neolithic settlement dating back to around 2,500 BC. Researchers from the University of British Columbia found that people are more likely to stare at sexually provocative images when they think others can’t see their eyes. Satellite images show a plume of discoloured water being emitted from the Kavachi Volcano, which lies about 15 miles south of Vangunu Island, on May 14. Previous research has shown these plumes of superheated, acidic water usually contain particulate matter, volcanic rock fragments, and sulphur, according to NASA.

An investigation found that 195 ‘carbon bomb’ schemes worldwide could potentially unleash some 646 billion tonnes of CO2 emissions, with around 60 per cent of them already producing oil and gas. Researchers from the University of Florida grew the plants in soil collected by NASA during the Apollo 11, 12 and 17 missions. The explosion on the white dwarf has been detailed in a new study by experts at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg in Erlangen, Germany. In a new video, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Menlo Park-based firm Meta, can be seen testing a demo on the ‘high-end’ headset, which will come out later this year.

It captured a series of ‘breathtaking’ pictures, including views across the solar poles and of several solar flares, providing a taste of real-time space weather forecasting. This is becoming increasingly important because of the threat space weather poses to technology and astronauts. Another eye-catching feature the Solar Orbiter snapped was nicknamed ‘the hedgehog’ because of its multitude of spikes of hot and colder gas that reach out in all directions . Researchers from the University of Toronto found that children who grow up with a dog have healthier guts and are less likely to develop Crohn’s disease – a common inflammatory bowel disease. Jetson, the Swedish-Polish company behind the Jetson One flying vehicle, has revealed new footage showing a pilot navigating the flying vehicle.
