SCIENCE!! Comics - Episode Four, "The Sound of One Claw Snapping"

This week! What's the sound of one claw snapping? (About 210 decibels.)

Learn more!
This week's comic was based on a number of sources, although it started with a press release on the phenomenon of sonoluminescence. 
You can read more here or watch a video of the snap here (with an explanation by one of the scientists studying these guys). And here is a video from the BBC.

I didn't get to talk about sonolumniscence much because it's pretty hard to explain, but it's really fascinating.

As usual, any mistakes are mine alone.
