30 Amazing Facts in Science (Download link below)

1. There is a species of jellyfish that is biologically immortal. Known as the Turritopsis dohrnii, this jellyfish is capable of reverting back to its juvenile state after reaching maturity, essentially making it immortal. This ability has captured the attention of scientists who are researching the mechanisms that make this possible.

2. The mantis shrimp has the most complex eyes in the animal kingdom. With 16 color receptors (humans have only three), the mantis shrimp is able to see an incredible range of colors, including ultraviolet and polarized light. Additionally, their eyes can move independently, allowing them to see in multiple directions simultaneously.

3. There is a phenomenon known as the Mpemba effect, where hot water can freeze faster than cold water. The exact cause of this effect is still unknown, but it has been observed in various experiments over the years.

4. The Great Barrier Reef is the largest living structure on Earth, spanning over 2,300 kilometers. It is home to a vast array of marine life, including over 1,500 species of fish and 600 types of coral.

5. The deepest part of the ocean, the Mariana Trench, is deeper than Mount Everest is tall. At a depth of 10,994 meters, the pressure at the bottom of the trench is over 1,000 times greater than that at sea level.

6. The smallest organism on Earth is the Mycoplasma genitalium, a bacteria that is only 0.2 micrometers in size. It is so small that it can only be seen under an electron microscope.

7. There is a type of fungus called the Ophiocordyceps unilateralis that infects and takes over the minds of ants, forcing them to climb to a high point and bite down on a leaf or twig before dying. The fungus then grows out of the ant's head and releases spores, infecting other ants.

8. The common octopus has the ability to regrow lost limbs. In fact, they are able to regrow not only their arms but also their reproductive organs.

9. There is a type of spider called the Darwin's bark spider that is capable of spinning the strongest known biological material. Its silk is ten times stronger than Kevlar and twice as strong as any other known spider silk.

10. The human brain contains more connections than there are stars in the Milky Way galaxy. It is estimated that the brain contains around 100 trillion synapses, which are the connections between neurons.

11. The longest recorded flight of a chicken was 13 seconds. Despite their inability to fly for long distances, chickens are capable of very short bursts of flight.

12. The sun accounts for 99.86% of the total mass in our solar system. The remaining 0.14% is split between all the planets, moons, asteroids, and other objects in the solar system.

13. A group of 12 or more cows is called a flink. This term is not commonly used, but it is a legitimate word in the English language.

14. There is a type of caterpillar that is capable of shooting its own faeces at predators. The caterpillar, known as the Brazilian wandering spider, uses its faeces as a defense mechanism to deter predators.

15. The smallest bone in the human body is the stapes, which is located in the ear. It is only 2.8 millimeters long and weighs less than 1 milligram.

16. The Hubble Space Telescope can see over 13 billion light-years away, allowing us to observe the most distant galaxies and stars in the universe.

17. There is a plant called the corpse flower that emits a foul odor similar to rotting flesh.

18. Thepbelieved to be around 13.8 billion years old and has been expanding since the Big Bang. However, recent research suggests that the universe may actually be infinite, meaning that it has no boundaries and no edge.

19. The smallest particle ever detected is the neutrino: Neutrinos are subatomic particles that have no electric charge and very little mass. They are incredibly difficult to detect because they pass through matter almost completely undisturbed. However, in 2016, scientists at the IceCube Neutrino Observatory in Antarctica detected a neutrino that had traveled over 3 billion light-years to reach Earth.

20. The largest organism on Earth is a fungus: The fungus Armillaria ostoyae, also known as the honey mushroom, covers over 2,200 acres in the Blue Mountains of Oregon. It is estimated to be around 2,400 years old and could weigh as much as 35,000 tons.


21. The deadliest creature on Earth is the mosquito: Mosquitoes are responsible for more deaths each year than any other animal, including humans. They transmit diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, and Zika virus.

22. There is a type of bacteria that can survive in outer space: Deinococcus radiodurans is a bacterium that is incredibly resistant to radiation and can survive in extreme conditions. Scientists have found that it can survive in space for up to 10 years, which could have implications for the search for life on other planets.

23. The world's largest volcano is under the Pacific Ocean: The Tamu Massif is a massive shield volcano that lies under the Pacific Ocean. It is estimated to be around 145 million years old and covers an area of around 120,000 square miles, making it larger than the state of New Mexico.

24. The Earth's magnetic field is weakening: The Earth's magnetic field, which protects us from harmful solar radiation, has been weakening over the past few centuries. Scientists believe that this could be a sign that the Earth's magnetic poles are about to reverse, which would have significant implications for our planet.

25. There is a planet made entirely of diamond: The planet PSR J1719-1438 b is believed to be a planet made entirely of diamond. It is located around 4,000 light-years from Earth and is around five times the size of Earth.

26. The Earth is not a perfect sphere: Due to the Earth's rotation and the forces exerted on it by the Moon and Sun, the Earth is actually slightly flattened at the poles and bulges at the equator. This shape is known as an oblate spheroid.

27. There are more possible iterations of a game of chess than there are atoms in the known universe: The number of possible games of chess is estimated to be around 10^120, which is significantly larger than the estimated number of atoms in the observable universe.

28. The longest living animal is a type of clam: The ocean quahog is a type of clam that can live for over 500 years. One specimen, nicknamed "Ming," was found to be around 507 years old when it was accidentally killed by scientists in 2006.

29. The Earth's atmosphere extends much farther than previously thought: Scientists have discovered that the Earth's atmosphere extends up to 10 times the distance to the Moon, meaning that it covers a much larger portion of our solar system than previously thought.

30. The world's largest waterfall is located under the ocean: The Denmark Strait cataract is a massive waterfall located under the ocean between Iceland and Greenland. It is estimated to be around 3 times the height of Niagara Falls.
