5835Narrowest optical fiber channelsDept. of Physics, University of Bath0.00000001 millimetre(s)Not Applicable, University of Bath01 January 1999Physicists at the University of Bath, UK, have produced a material called photonic crystal fiber which has a regular array of holes that run the fiber's entire length. These tubes are basis for the world's narrowest optical fiber channels for communications. The fibers could stretch to 10km 6miles 376yd with cores just 0.00000001mm 1/400000000in thick.

5836Worst lightning strike disaster – death tollLANSA Flight 50891 peoplePeru, Sydney24 December 1971The highest death toll form a disaster caused by a fatal lightning strike is 91 people, all of whom died when Peruvian airline, LANSA, Flight 508 was struck and crashed into the Amazon rainforest on 24 December 1971. Whilst several of the passengers survived the 3-km (2-mile) drop to earth, only one person, Juliane Koepcke (Germany), was able to leave the crash site to seek help.Having been taught by her father that settlements may be found by tracking along a water source, Koepcke followed a stream until she stumbled upon a canoe and shelter belonging to local lumbermen. When they returned and discovered Koepcke, they treated her injuries as well as they could before taking her downriver to Tournavista, Peru. From there she was flown to a hospital in Pucallpa, where she was reunited with her father.Her story was later told in the film Wings of Hope (Germany, 2000), directed by Werner Herzog (Germany), who had almost caught the ill-fated flight himself.

5846Largest stealth shipVisby corvetteSweden01 January 2001The largest ship incorporating stealth technology is the Swedish Visby-class corvette, which is approximately 72 m (236 ft) long and has a displacement of 600 tonnes (1.32 million lb). Developed by the Kockums shipyard, the carbon fibre vessel is far lighter than a conventional ship of its size, and features the large flat surfaces commonly used in aircraft to provide low radar visibility. The Visby prototype made her maiden voyage in December 2001.The carbon fibre construction means that the ship also has a low magnetic signature, meaning there's one less way for it to be detected. It also has low noise levels and exhaust emmissions are released in such a way as to reduce the infra-red signature. Wherever possible, equipment usually mounted on the decks or superstructure has been stowed below, ensuring that her lines are as clean as possible. The Visby has a crew of 43.Corvettes are fast small to medium sized combat vessels that are employed in a variety of roles.
5847Most ancient natural clonesDarwinulidaeNot ApplicableSpecies belonging to Darwinulidae, a family of ostracods – tiny crustaceans around 1 mm in length – reproduce asexually, i.e. completely without using sex. Fossil records show that this has been happening since at least 100 million years ago. This means that every individual alive today is an almost exact clone of a previous individual from the Cretaceous Period. The only genetic differences are due to genetic mutations in the intervening period and their evolution has therefore been extremely slow.
