5407First bioluminescent primateANDifirstUnited States, 01 January 2000The world’s first bioluminescent primate was a rhesus monkey Macaca mulatta called ANDi (whose name is the abbreviation for inserted DNA written backwards), created in 2000 by a team of researchers led by Gerald Schatten and Anthony W.S. Chan at the Oregon Regional Primate Research Center at Oregon Health Sciences University. They inserted a glowing gene obtained from bioluminescent jellyfishes into 222 monkey eggs, of which 126 grew into embryos in laboratory dishes. Forty of these were then transferred to 20 surrogate mothers (two embryos per mother), but only five pregnancies occurred, from which three live foetuses were born, but only one – ANDi – contained any jellyfish genes.
5408First bioluminescent pigsTaiwan UniversityfirstChinese Taipei, Taipei01 January 2005The world’s first fully bioluminescent, transgenic pigs were born in 2005, created by a scientific team from Taiwan University's Department of Animal Science and Technology. They added DNA from bioluminescent jellyfish to approximately 265 pig embryos, which were in turn implanted into eight different sows. Four of these sows duly became pregnant, and three male bioluminescent piglets were born. Even in daylight they have a greenish tinge, which becomes a torch-like glow if blue light is shone on them in the dark, and not only their skin but also their internal organs glow. Stem cells taken from them will be used to trace human diseases, as the green-glowing protein that the pigs produce can be readily observed without the need for biopsies or invasive tests.

5411Oldest footballStirling CastleUnited KingdomDuring an excavation project at Stirling Castle, Scotland, UK in the mid-1970s, a grey, leather ball was discovered behind oak-panelling in a bedroom once used by Mary, Queen of Scots during her reign in the 16th century it has since been declared the world's oldest football. The ball was re-discovered in 1999 in the archives of Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum, and tests confirmed that it was 436 years old - created between 1540-1570. It is unknown if the Queen herself used the ball, what is more likely is that soldiers and staff played a type of handball with it in the castle courtyard.The ball is currently on display at the same museum.

5415Most days in the field filming for a natural world television programmePlanet EarthUnited Kingdom01 January 2006The ground-breaking natural world documentary, Planet Earth (BBC, UK), has the absolute record of any nature programme for the most days spent in the field recording footage - with over 2,000 days. The entire one-hour, 11-part series, first screened in the UK in 2006, was shot entirely using High Definition film, by 40 camera crews in 200 locations on every continent. Their successes included recording a snow leopard hunting for the first time on film - a few minutes of footage which, itself took over one year to capture. With the aid of a heli-gimbal (a gimbal-stablised powerful camera attached to a helicopter), they were able to fly high enough to capture aerial close-ups of African elephants, hump-backed whales 'bubble netting' krill in Antarctica and a male polar-bear swimming amongst chunks of Arctic ice - all without disturbing the animals.
5416Most expensive species in captivityGiant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca)1000000 US dollar(s)United States, San DiegoThe most expensive zoo species is the giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca), the entire population of which is indigenous to - and owned by - China alone. Four zoos in the US cities of San Diego, Atlanta, Washington and Memphis, each pay an annual leasing fee of $1 million (then £526,340) to the Chinese Government for a pair of these rare creatures. If cubs are born, and typically twins are, a one-off payment of $600,000 (then £315,800) per offspring must also be made. In addition, a panda's upkeep (including bamboo production and security) makes them five times more costly than elephants - the second most expensive species to keep.In order to promote business ties to China, the four US zoos also pay up to $2 million (£1,053,000) each to sponsor research and conservation projects in the US and China. With this included, the contracts are worth over $80 million (then £42 million) to the Chinese.Other countries, such as Thailand and Australia, which also host pandas, pay a lesser annual leasing fee of $300,000 (£157,900) the reason US zoos pay more is because the Chinese Government perceives them to be rich, as well as beautiful. Renegotiations of the terms are expected as individual leasing contracts expire over the next few years (e.g. San Diego in 2008, Memphis in 2013).As of 2005, international biologists estimated the wild panda population at 1,000-2,000 with 188 in captivity around the world.

5428Most powerful hybrid rocketUnknownUnited States, NASA's Stennis Space Center,Mississippi17 January 2002The concept of hybrid rockets has been around for more than 60 years. They use solid fuel and a liquid oxidiser. Conventional chemical rockets use either solid or liquid fuel. Normal solid rockets burn their fuel in a manner similar to a firework, but are unable to be extinguished once ingited. Hybrid rockets can be throttled and extinguished while in use. The most powerful built and tested to date is the 250,000lb (113,400kg) hybrid rocket which underwent its fourth test on 17 January 2002, for 27 seconds, at the NASA's Stennis Space Center, Mississippi, USA.
