The aroma that they inhale is thought to be a result of high-energy vibrations in particles brought back inside the station which have mixed with the air. 14, The world’s oceans contain 20 million tons of gold, but each litre of seawater contains, on average, about 13 billionths of a gram of gold. 13, There’s a gas cloud in the constellation of Aquila that contains enough alcohol to make 400 trillion trillion pints of beer. 12, There’s a species of jellyfish that is essentially immortal, scientists are studying them closely, with the hopes of applying what they learn to issues such as human aging and illness. 11, It takes a photon, on average, 170,000 years to travel from the core of the sun to the surface and then it takes just 8 minutes from the sun’s surface to your eyes. 10, If you removed all the empty space from the atoms that make up all the humans on Earth, the remaining mass could fit inside a sugar cube. 9, There are 328,000,000 cubic miles of seawater on earth, covering approximately 71 percent of earth's surface. But If the oceans dried out, the salt left over would cover the continents to a depth of 500 feet. 8, The Universe may have neither a centre nor an edge, because according to Einstein’s theory of relativity, gravity bends all of space time around into an endless curve. 7, Our bodies contain around 0.2 milligrams of pure gold, most of it within our blood. However you would need 40,000 people to collect enough gold to make one 8g sovereign. 6, Butterflies taste with their hind feet, A female would land on different plants, drumming the leaves with her feet to make the plant release its juices. Spines on the back of her legs have chemoreceptors that detect the right match of plant chemicals for food or to lay eggs. 5,The deepest part of any ocean in the world is the Mariana trench in the Pacific with a depth of 35,797 feet. At the bottom of the trench the water column above exerts a pressure of 1,086 bars that's15,750 psi, over 1000 times the standard atmospheric pressure at sea level. 4, There are 62,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body, if you could lay the vessels end to end they would circle the earth 2.5 times. 3, Polar Bears are nearly undetectable by infrared cameras, They are so well insulated from the cold that they become almost invisible when photographed with infrared film, which detects heat. Except for a spot in front of its mouth made by its warm breath. 2, At over 2000 kilometers long, The Great Barrier Reef is the largest living structure on Earth. It is a system of about 3,000 individual reefs and 900 coral islands, which are divided by narrow passages, just beneath the surface of the Coral Sea. 1, 90% of your body of mass is in fact stardust, all of the elements except hydrogen and helium are created within the stars.
