16 Extraordinary Facts about Things That Seem Too Insane To Be True
Science is never boring. The problem is that we have been dogged down by science homework, science tests and the stress of a science curriculum in school that some almost detest it. However, science governs the entire universe and our very existence. Science can also be crazy at times like for example did you know coconut water can also be fed intravenously? And, the Mona Lisa actually had eyebrows. There are so many incredible science facts that will surprise you no end and some are downright insane and crazy to the point that no one will even believe them yet they are true. Here are 16 of them.
1The coldest place in the entire Universe is actually on Earth
Yes, in case you thought it was Pluto or some distant star. It’s not even the South Pole, Siberia, Dras, Iceland or any country for that matter. When Scientists froze atoms with a laser, they managed to acquire a temperature that was close to absolute zero. It can’t get colder than that.
2By getting rid of the empty space in atoms, all of humanity would fit in an apple
Yes, that’s right. Did you know that an atom is actually 99.9% empty space and that every atom in our body is empty space, but why do things feel solid? That is because of the electrons in atoms that are constantly dancing around and when the atoms of our fingers come in contact with the atoms of an object the resistance of energy is what gives the appearance of something solid.
3If the Universe had a taste, it would taste like raspberry
Yes. What’s weird is that the same chemical compounds that are present in raspberry and responsible for its taste
4One of the slipperiest substances in the world is in your knees
Yes, the lubricant in your knee joints is called synovial fluid and is mainly made up of hyaluronic acid which is a gel-like substance that lubricates our joints and is also responsible for skin elasticity and skin health.
