Sarah Cole, of Boston, has worn the same black dress every day for 100 days! She took a challenge from a dress company to highlight waste in the fashion industry.

The first complete gene map of a platypus has just been released, and it’s every bit as strange as you’d expect, from a creature with 10 sex chromosomes, a pair of venomous spurs, a coat of fluorescent fur, and skin that ‘sweats’ milk.
