6456Largest octopus genusOctopus100 total numberNot Applicable, 28 September 2015The largest genus of octopuses is Octopus, which contains over 100 species (opinions vary among octopus researchers concerning the exact number), which is more than a third of the total number of octopus species currently recognized by science. Its species are predominantly benthic, and include Octopus vulgaris, the common octopus, which is the world's most studied octopus species and has a cosmopolitan range.The term "octopus" is of Greek origin and translates as "eight-footed". As it is derived from Greek, its correct plural is "octopuses" (or even "octopodes"), but not "octopi" (even though this is often mistakenly used), because this latter plural would only be correct if "octopus" were a Latin term.
6457Longest war memorial wallVietnam Veterans Memorial150.42 metre(s)United States, WashingtonThe longest memorial wall for war veterans is the 150.42-m Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC, USA, completed in 1982 according to the designs of American artist and designer Maya Ying Lin. Vietnam Veterans Memorial consists of a 75.21-m-long wall made of dark gabbro granite, onto which the names of 58,191 servicemen and women were inscribed in a highly regular font spacing and 1.35-cm height, listed in chronological order of death. The wall is sunk into a crevice in the ground, reaching 3.12 m in the middle and descending to just 20 cm at the two edges. Costing around US$4,284,000, the wall is supported by 140 concrete pilings driven 11 m into the bedrock below. Conceptually, Maya Lin has described how she “imagined taking a knife and cutting into the earth, opening it up, an initial violence and pain that in time would heal”. After Lin’s competition win, some negative criticism led to the 1984 addition to the design of the more conventional “The Three Soldiers” sculpture to one side of the memorial wall. A half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the “Moving Wall” was also constructed in 1984, touring the USA.

6468Smoothest surface in the Solar SystemEuropaNot ApplicableJuly 1979Jupiter's large icy moon Europa has the smoothest surface of any solid body in the Solar System. The only prominent relief on its surface are ridges a few hundred metres in height. The tidal forces which cause Io’s intense volcanic activity also affect Europa. There are very few impact craters, meaning the surface is geologically young. A subsurface ocean of salty water is believed to exist on Europa, backed up by evidence in images showing what looks like broken sea ice refrozen into position. The nature of the surface of Europa was discovered by Voyager 2, during its flyby of Jupiter in July 1979. The Hubble Space Telescope has discovered plumes of water vapour surrounding Europa, almost certainly caused by cryovolcanic activity similar to what happens on Saturn's moon Enceladus.
