We present you 10 amazing facts that will make you stress-free and make your day delightful.
Time Dilation: Imagine this – in space, time actually moves a bit slower! Astronauts on the International Space Station age just a tad slower than us here on Earth, all thanks to Einstein’s theory of relativity.
Humming Quirk: Here’s a fun experiment: try humming while pinching your nose shut. Surprisingly, it’s impossible! Humans can’t hum if their noses are blocked.
Taste Bud Renewal: Did you know your taste buds have a short life span? They stick around for about 10 to 14 days before new ones take their place. It’s why flavors sometimes change subtly.
Banana-Human Connection: Bananas are surprisingly similar to us! They share a whopping 50% of their DNA with humans. Nature’s way of reminding us we are all connected!
Octopus Marvels: Octopuses are extraordinary creatures. They boast not one, not two, but three hearts! Two pump blood to their gills, while the third circulates it through the rest of their body. Plus, their blood is blue due to a special copper-based molecule.
Great Wall Myth: Contrary to popular belief, the Great Wall of China isn’t visible from space without aid. It’s an incredible feat, yes, but not visible to the naked eye from way up high.
Earth’s Weight Gain: Earth is gaining weight! Every year, about 50,000 tons of mass are added as cosmic dust and tiny meteoroids fall from space onto our planet.
Eiffel Tower’s Summer Stretch: The Eiffel Tower, made of iron, has a quirky habit. It grows taller during hot summer days! When temperatures rise, it can stretch by several inches.
Cow Companions: Cows are social animals. They form deep friendships and can get stressed when separated from their best buddies. A reminder that animals too have bonds and emotions.
Venus’ Peculiar Rotation: Imagine a day being longer than a year! On Venus, one rotation (a day) takes longer than one orbit around the sun (a year). That’s the marvel of our neighboring planet’s slow rotation.
