3851Most bioluminescent octopusred deepwaterUnited States, eastern USA01 January 1997Unlike squids, which include many bioluminescent species, the only significantly bioluminescent species of octopus is a red deepwater species from the eastern USA called Stauroteuthis syrtensis. Its bioluminescent ability remained unknown to science until 1997, when Edith Widder (USA) of Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution in Fort Pierce, Florida, USA studied a live specimen captured in the Gulf of Maine when dark, the specimen presented a row of sucker-like structures running the length of each of its tentacles glowing blue-green and emitting most light at 470 nanometres (a wavelength that travels well under water). Researchers now believe that these structures are suckers that are no longer used by the octopus as grasping organs like those of other octopuses, but have instead evolved into light-emitting photo-lures, which can flash on and off, attracting prey near enough to be seized by its tentacles.

3856First platform videogame in true 3DJumping FlashfirstNot Applicable, 01 January 1995Jumping Flash, a 1995 PlayStation launch game, was the first platformer in true 3D. The 1996 game Crash Bandicoot had beautiful 3D graphics and some simple 3D gameplay elements, but mostly worked like a 2D game.It was the same year’s Super Mario 64 for the Nintendo 64 that created the 3D platformer we know today, with its varied gameplay, free camera and emphasis on item collection.GWR Video Gamer's Edition 2008, title: First platformer in true 3D.
3857First use of forensic gait analysis evidence in courtHaydn KellyfirstUnited Kingdom, 12 July 2000The first time that forensic gait analysis (the analysis of a person's style of walking as a method of identification) has been admissible as evidence in criminal law occurred in the case of R- v - Saunders at The Old Bailey Central Criminal Court, London, UK on 12 July 2000. Consultant Podiatrist Haydn Kelly (UK) was able to identify jewellery thief John Saunders (UK) as the person attempting to rob a shop, from earlier police surveillance footage. Despite Saunders wearing two pairs of trousers, a mask and gloves, Mr Kelly was able to confirm that less than five per cent of the British population had walking mechanics similar to the suspected thief - evidence that helped end Saunder's lucrative criminal career.John Saunders had led a series of robberies across Surrey, UK, and stolen goods worth £750,000 (then $1.13 million).
3858Newest species of treeTahina palm treeMadagascar01 January 2006Discovered accidentally by a picnicking family in a remote hilly wooded area of northwestern Madagascar in 2006, but only recognised to be a dramatically new species and genus following DNA analysis a year later, the Tahina palm tree (Tahina spectabilis) was not officially named and described until January 2008. What makes this species’ belated scientific discovery so surprising is its huge size, standing over 18 m (58 ft 6 in) tall, with fan-like leaves 5 m (16 ft) across, and its bizarre, suicidal life cycle. Taking decades to bloom, when it does it produces an explosion of hundreds of nectar-rich flowers towering above its crown, each of which develops into fruit, but in so doing the tree’s nutrients become so depleted that as soon as it has fruited the tree collapses and dies.
3859Longest journey overland by a submarineUnknownNot Applicable, Black SeaThe location, in 2007, of three German submarines from the second world war scuttled in the Black Sea, has highlighted a remarkable feat of wartime transportation. The submarines, including one U-23 that was originally commanded by Otto Kretschmer (Germany), were located by a Turkish marine engineer, Selçuk Kolay. The route through the Bosporus river to the Black Sea was not open to the Germans during World War II (due to Turkish neutrality), so instead, six submarines belonging to the German Navy’s 30th Flotilla were taken by road and river from the German Baltic port of Kiel to Constanta, the Romanian Black Sea port (finally arriving there in May 1942) - a journey of 2,320 km (2,000 miles).The submarines were partially dismantled and loaded onto shallow draught pontoons in Kiel, taken by canal to the River Elbe and upstream to Dresden where they were transferred to low-bed motorised trailers and taken 300 miles to Ingolstadt by road. They were then ferried downstream to Constanta. The aim was to attack Russian shipping in the Black Sea and, in the two years they operated there, they sank dozens of ships for the loss of three submarines. In 1944, however, Romania switched to the Allies and this left the boats stranded with no way out of the Black Sea, as the Bosporus and Dardanelles were closed to them and they had no base from which to operate. The crews were ordered to scuttle the boats out of sight of the Turks. This they did and the boats location has remained a mystery until now.

3865First flight over EverestUnknownfirstIndia, Lalbalu,Purnea03 April 1933On 3 April 1933, two aircraft, a Houston-Westland and a Westland-Wallace - both open cockpit bi-planes fitted with Bristol Pegasus SIII engines - made the first manned flights over Mount Everest (29,035feet), the highest mountain in the world. The aircraft took off from Lalbalu aerodrome, near Purnea, India crewed by Colonel LVS Blacker and Squadron Leader the Lord Clydesdale in one and Flight Lieutenant DF MacIntyre and Mr SR Bonnet in the other. The flight took three hours, covered a return distance of 320 miles reaching nearly 30,000 feet clearing the mountain by a reported 100 feet. Close range photographs of Mt Everest proved the achievement.
3866First person to break the sound barrier (female)Jacqueline CochranfirstUSA, The first woman to fly faster than Mach 1 was a famous, female aviator named Jacqueline Cochran (USA). Better known as Jackie, Cochran was born in 1906 and became one of the pioneering women of aeronautics. She was a friend of Chuck Yeager, the first person to break the sound barrier. He helped her to make the transition to jet-powered aircraft, and she then soon achieved a number of new aviation records. On 18 May 1953, she flew an F-86 Sabre past Mach 1 becoming the first woman to break the sound barrier. She went on to set a world speed record of 1,429 mph (2,300 km/h) in 1964 and no fewer than eight speed records in 1967, when she was over 60 years old!
3867First loss of a B-2 Spirit BomberSpirit of Kansasfirst, 23 February 2008On 23 February 2008, while attempting to take off from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, a USAF B-2 Spirit bomber, Spirit of Kansas, crashed owing to moisture in three of its 24 air pressure sensors, which caused inaccurate data to be supplied to its flight computer. First introduced into service in 1997 at a unit cost in the region of $737 million - though some reports place the loss at $1.4billion - this was the first crash of a B-2 bomber. The aircraft were so expensive that only 21 were produced.The crew thought the aircraft had reached its take-off speed of 140 knots, but in reality it had only reached 130 knots. This meant that the sensors showed the aircraft to be in a nose down position causing it to demand a high level of pitch of around 30 degrees. This, together with the low take-off speed, caused the aircraft to stall and crash.
3868Most miniature chairs made in three minutes using a chainsawAlberto GonzalezSpain, Madrid28 January 2009The most miniature chairs made in 3 minutes using a chainsaw is 8 and was achieved by Alberto Gonzalez (Spain) on the set of 'Guinness World Records', in Madrid, Spain on 28 January 2009.These were all cut from one poplar trunk.
3869First confirmed discovery of an extrasolar planetUnknownfirst, 01 January 1992In 1992 astronomers announced they had discovered two planets orbiting a pulsar. PSR B1257+12 is a supernova remnant 980 light years from Earth, it weighs around 1.4 times the mass of the Sun but is only around 30 km across. It spins once on its axis in just 6.22 milliseconds (9,646 rpm). The pulsar was previously a giant star which went supernova around 800 million years ago. The two planets were either pre-existing rocky worlds like Mercury or Earth, or the rocky cores left behind from gas giants, stripped of their bulk by the supernova. Another theory is that the planets formed in a second round of planet formation from the debris of the supernova.
