Everglades National Park is a national park in the U.S. state of Florida. The largest subtropical wilderness in the United States, it contains the southern 25 percent of the original Everglades marshland region of southwestern Florida. It is visited by one million people each year, and it is the third-largest national park in the lower 48 states. It has been declared an International Biosphere Reserve, a World Heritage Site, and a Wetland of International Importance, only one of three locations in the world to appear on all three lists.
Six-spotted Green Tiger Beetle Cicindela sexguttata
Despite its name, the six-spotted tiger beetle might have no spots-or as many as four white spots along the posterior edge of each wing cover. This half-inch-long, iridescent green or blue-green insect has conspicuous sickle-shaped mandibles (jaws) and large, bulging eyes on the side of its head.
The VLA - Very Large Array - Radio Telescope in Socorro, New Mexico
An astronomical interferometer is an array of telescopes or mirror segments acting together to probe structures with higher resolution by means of interferometry. The benefit of the interferometer is that the angular resolution of the instrument is nearly that of a telescope with the same aperture as a single large instrument encompassing all of the individual photon-collecting sub-components. Astronomical interferometers can produce higher-resolution astronomical images than any other type of telescope. At radio wavelengths image resolutions of a few micro-arcseconds have been obtained, and image resolutions of a fractional milliarcsecond have been achieved at visible and infrared wavelengths.
