The Truth Is Out There and, little did we know, the truth tastes a lot like cow’s milk, cows that have been abducted by UFOs. Kyrgyzstan-based design agency Imedia Creative Bureau created this awesome packaging design concept for Molocow milk. The glass milk bottles are shaped like tractor beams and capped by silver UFOs screw-caps. The bottles are labeled with the silhouette of a cow being pulled up into the UFO. We want to believe.

Plastic makes great food packaging. It’s waterproof and flexible. And best of all, it’s impervious to all known bacteria — until now. Researchers have found a bacterium in the debris fields around a recycling plant in Japan that can feed off a common type of plastic used in clothing, plastic bottles and food packaging.

The bacterium is a new species called Ideonella sakaiensis, named for the Japanese city Sakai where it was found growing on plastic debris made from a type of plastic called PET or polyethylene terephthalate. “It’s the most unique thing. This bacterium can degrade PET and then make their body from PET,” says Shosuke Yoshida, a microbiologist at Kyoto University and lead author on the study published in Science on Thursday.
