9061Newest hydrogen powered spy plane prototype - phantom eyePhantom Eye2010/7/12 year(s), month(s), day(s)United States, 12 July 2010On 12 July 2010, in St Louis, Missouri, the Boeing Company unveiled the newest hydrogen powered spy-plane prototype, the Phantom Eye. Designed for advanced intelligence and reconnaissance missions, it is a high altitude, long endurance (HALE) unmanned aerial vehicle that will stay airborne for up to four days at altitudes of around 65,000 feet (19,800 metres). Its first flight is planned for the spring of 2011 at NASA’s Dryden Research Center, Edwards Air Force Base, California. The Phantom Eye ha a wingspan of 45.7 metres (150 feet), carries up to 205 kg (450 pounds) and is powered by two 2.3 litre four cylinder engines each producing 150 horsepower (111kW). The hydrogen propulsion system is efficient and the only by-product is water, so its production version will be a very green addition to the UAV reconnaissance fleet.
9062Longest bowling run-up (male)Jason Rawson2.7 kilometre(s)United Kingdom, Salesbury,Blackburn20 March 2010The longest bowling approach in a cricket match is 2.7 km (1.6 mi) by Jason Rawson (UK) in a 20/20 match played at Salesbury Cricket Club in Salesbury, Blackburn, UK on 20 March 2010. The delivery was the first of the match to batsman Ian Riley, who went on to smash successive boundaries.The match was abandoned by the umpire after six balls due to inclement weather (persistent rains). Rawson completed the 2.7-km approach immediately after running a full marathon unrelated to the attempt. A bowling approach is the run-up taken by a bowler in cricket before delivering (or bowling) the ball to the batsman, thus initiating gameplay.
9063Longest journey by an unmanned autonomous surface vehicleBenjamin Franklin (Liquid Robotics)Australia, ,Lady Musgrave Island14 February 2013On 14 February 2013, "Benjamin Franklin", the Wave Glider® - an unmanned autonomous surface vehicle developed by US company Liquid Robotics, successfully completed a 7,939-nautical mile (14,703-km) journey across the Pacific Ocean from San Francisco, CA, USA, to Lady Musgrave Island, Queensland Australia.

9068Smallest sharkSpined pygmy shark (Squaliolus laticaudus), Dwarf lantern shark (Etmopterus perryi), Pygmy ribbontail catshark (Eridacnis radcliffei)16 - 17.5 centimetre(s)Due to the difficulties in determining precisely when a small species is sexually mature (i.e. an adult and fully grown), there are two, possibly three, contenders for the smallest spieces of shark. The most likely record holder is the dwarf lantern shark (Etmopterus perryi), males of which measure a total length of 16-17.5 cm (6.3-6.8 in) (with one confirmed male adult specimen collected measuring 19 cm or 7.4 in long), and mature females of which are typcially 19-20 cm (7.4-7.8 in). Prior to the discovery of the dwarf lantern shark, the record holder was the spined pygmy shark Squaliolus laticaudus, males of which measure 15 cm (6 in), females 17-20 cm (6.7-7.8 in). A third rival species, the pygmy ribbontail catshark Eridacnis radcliffei, has males measuring 18-19 cm (7-7.4 in) and females possibly mature at 15-16 cm (6-6.3 in).

9090First monumental domeTemple of Mercuryfirst firstItaly, BaiaeFirst century BC BCThe world’s first ever monumental stone dome is the 21.55-m diameter Temple of Mercury at Baiae in Ancient Rome, near Naples, Italy. Probably constructed in the first century BC from packed tufa rubble, it was not, in fact, a temple, but instead a city baths, along with two similarly sized concrete domes. The dome is unusual for being pierced by both an upper oculus and four windows, and helped to inspire later Roman domes such as the Pantheon. It is not quite circular in plan, and probably used eight timber trusses during construction. n/a
