Rain falls and within seconds dried-up moss that's been virtually dead for decades unfurls in an explosion of green. Scientists say the genes in these "resurrection plants" might one day protect crops from drought. Watch the latest #DeepLook video on our YouTube channel.

Ants don't eat leaves. They use them to grow white tufts of nutritious fungus to feed their offspring. We visited these critters at the @calacademy rainforest exhibit! You can also see leafcutter ants at the Oakland Zoo.Watch the first video of the second season of KQED and PBS Digital Studio's #DeepLook YouTube series. #science #ants #insects #biology #kqed

Deep Look, big screen! @kqedofficial's lead Deep Look producer Josh Cassidy saw his beloved banana slug featured in ultra HD at @pbsofficial's annual conference and couldn't resist getting s photo, along with PBS's Renard Jenkins. #pbsam #deeplook #science #bananaslug

Imperial Valley farmers have a steady supply of water, and the ground is always in production. Due to federal agreements established around 100 years ago, Imperial County has a right to much of the Colorado River water flowing into Southern California.

Happy Star Wars Day! #MayThe4thBeWithYou #Repost @nasa
Tatooine? No, it's Kepler-16b, illustrated in this artist concept. The existence of a world with a double sunset, as portrayed in the film Star Wars more than 30 years ago, is now scientific fact. Our Kepler mission has made the first unambiguous detection of a circumbinary planet - a planet orbiting two stars - 200 light-years from Earth. Unlike Star Wars' Tatooine, the planet is cold, gaseous and not thought to harbor life, but its discovery demonstrates the diversity of planets in our galaxy. Previous research has hinted at the existence of circumbinary planets, but clear confirmation proved elusive. Kepler detected such a planet by observing transits, where the brightness of a parent star dims from the planet crossing in front of it.

Bluebird populations weren't doing so well not so long ago. Thanks to volunteers installing bluebird nest boxes, there has been a significant increase in the number of Western bluebirds tracked in California over the last 19 years. Crown Beach in the East Bay is just one of many locations in the Bay Area where volunteers have installed nest boxes.

A framegrab of a hummingbird feeding in a wind tunnel at #ucberkeley filmed using a high-speed camera. Scientists can see, frame by frame, how neither wind nor rain stop these tiniest of birds from fueling up. Watch the full #deeplook PBS Digital Studios video at YouTube.com/KQEDDeepLook. #science #hummingbirds #flowers #biology #windtunnel
