The hiccup cure

Hiccups aren’t much fun, but a new L-shaped straw is here to save the day.

It’s not you. You can blame your iron age ancestors for that box of sentimental junk you can’t bring yourself to part with.

But something marine scientists were happy to part with – dozens of baby squid. They were sent to the International Space Station earlier this month on a SpaceX resupply mission. Don’t worry, they aren’t being salt/peppered/fried – they’ve made the trip in the name of science and will come back to Earth next month.
