Brittlestars are awesome!

Brittlestar movement is one of the spotlights at Science this week. Brittlestars are related to seastars (aka starfish), and are radially-symmetrical invertebrates. However, this recent study demonstrated that brittlestars can move like bilaterally-symmetrical organisms, which is much more efficient. I always knew brittlestars were super cool!
