6970Lightest known particleNeutrinoUnknown10 January 2002The lightest known particles in the universe are neutrinos which have a maximum mass of 0.0000000000000000000000000000000000018 kg. Neutrinos are come in three varieties - electron, muon and tau neutrinos. The mass is an average of the three types.Neutrinos are created by radioactive decay and nuclear fusion (the process that powers the sun). The mass of the particles was successfully calculated by scientists at Cambridge University and announced at the Royal Astronomical Society's annual conference in Bristol on 10 April 2002.These particles interact only very weakly with normal matter - every second trillions of them are passing through your body. They are one of the least understood particles in nature.

6972First nuclear submarineUSS NautilusfirstUnited States, Groton21 November 1953The world's first nuclear-powered submarine was USS Nautilus, launched at Groton, Connecticut, USA, on 21 January 1954. Built by General Dynamics Electric Boat, Nautilus was 98.7 m (324 ft) long, with a beam of 26.8 m (88 ft).She had a crew of 95 enlisted men and 10 officers, and was capable of reaching speeds of over 20 knots (37 km/h or 23 mph). Steam provided by nuclear-generated heat turned two turbines, developing 11,200 kW (15,000 hp). In 1986 she was put on display at the Submarine Force Museum at Groton, Connecticut, where she remains today.USS Nautilus SSN 571 was the first nuclear powered submarine to enter service and marked a revolution in naval warfare, since it could remain submerged for much longer than conventional submarines and travel further. It made an early record breaking voyage of 2,222 km (1,381 miles) in 90 hours in 1955 and was the first submarine to travel under the ice cap to the North Pole arriving there at 11.15 am on 3 August 1958.

6977Largest car enginePierce-Arrow 6-66, Fageol, Peerless 6-6013.5 litre(s)United States, 01 January 1900The greatest engine capacity of a production car was 13.5 litres (823.8 cu in), for the US Pierce-Arrow 6-66 Raceabout of 1912-18, the US Peerless 6-60 of 1912-14 and the Fageol of 1918.Despite their massive size, these giants from the early days of automobiles were very inefficient compared to their modern counterparts. A typical modern family car has a relatively small engine capacity of between 1,3 and 2 liters (79.3 cu in and 122 cu in), with power output of between 45 and 90kW (60 and 120bhp). The Pierce-Arrow 6-66, despite having an engine more than 10 times the size of a modern 1,3 liter (79.3 cu in) hatchback, had roughly the same power output of 49kW (66bhp). Modern F1 racing cars, comparison, have an engine capacity of around 3 liters and power output in excess of 559kW (750hp). Despite its relatively poor performance in modern terms, the six-cylinder Pierce-Arrow was a highly regarded vehicle in its day and is said to have been a favorite of smugglers during the prohibition era because of the smoothness and quietness of its engine.

6979Fastest wheel-driven vehicleDon Vesco737.794 kilometre(s) per hourUnited States, Bonneville Salt Flats18 October 2001The fastest speed ever reached by a vehicle powered through its wheels is 737.794 km/h (458.444 mi/h), by the turbine-powered Vesco Turbinator, driven by Don Vesco (USA) at Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, USA, on 18 October 2001.Wheel-driven refers to the fact that the power of the engine is directed to the car's wheels, which then power it forwards. Thrust SSC, the car that set the absolute land speed record, was jet-powered, meaning that it was the thrust of the jets that powered it forward - the wheels were 'passive'.Note that Don Vesco died of cancer in 2002.

6989Snake with the longest fangsUnknownThe longest fangs of any snake are those of the highly venomous gaboon viper (Bitis gabonica) of tropical Africa. In a specimen of 1.83 m 6 ft length, they measured 50 mm 2 in.The gaboon viper (Bitis gabonica) is considered to produce more venom than any other venomous snake. A single adult male may have enough venom to inject lethal doses into 30 individual men. Not only do they produce more venom than any other snake but they also inject more deeply. Although sluggish and docile by nature, Gaboons are unpredictable and capable of great speed in short bursts making them extremely dangerous. A single bite victim reported in Switzerland was bitten in the chest and died one and a half hours later from the massive doses of venom injected into his system. Signs of Gaboon envenomation include hypotension, internal hemorrhaging, cardiac arrest and spontaneous bleeding.
