5797Highest volcanic eruptionIoNot Applicable, In orbit around Jupiter.06 August 2001On 6 August 2001, NASA's Galileo spacecraft performed a close flyby of Jupiter's volcanically active satellite, Io. Over the following months, as the data was slowly transmitted back to Earth, mission scientists realised that the spacecraft had passed through the top of a 500-km-high (310-mile) volcanic plume. This is the highest volcanic eruption plume ever witnessed in the Solar System.Galileo flew by the moon at a distance of 194 km (120 miles) from the surface. The volcanic particles, believed to be composed of sulphur dioxide, were detected by Galileo's plasma instrument. Images of the plume backlit by the Sun revealed its full extent. The plume originated at the Tvashtar volcano, near Io’s north pole.

5800Most light sensitive eyesGygantocyprisUnited States30 January 2002The animal regarded as having the eyes with highest light-collecting ability is the ostracod Gigantocypris which has an f-number of 0.25. By way of comparison, humans have an f-number of approximately 2.55 and a camera lens an f-number of 1.8. Although Gigantocypris is the world's largest ostracod, or seed shrimp, it only has a diameter of approximately 1.5 cm (0.7 in).The f-number is a measure of the relative aperture of a lens on a camera or its light gathering capacity. The number becomes smaller as the aperture grows larger. The f-number is equal to the ratio of the focal length of the lens divided by the diameter of its limiting opening (aperture): f-number = focal length/iris diameter.
5801Most bioluminescent insectPyrophorus noctilucusUnited StatesThe insect considered to be the most bioluminescent is the firefly (Pyrophorus noctilucus) which has been documented as having a surface brightness of 45 millilamberts. The light emitted by fireflies (which are actually beetles, not flies) is unique as almost 100% of the energy is given off as light. In a lightbulb only 10% of the energy is light with the other 90% given off as heat. A lambert is a unit of luminescence and equals 3,183 candelas/m² A millilambert equals 3.183 candelas/m² A candela is the base unit for measuring the intensity of light They are usually between 10 and 14mm long, weight: 0.3 g, lifespan: 10 days, discovered: 1758.
