9421Lightest tankAdvanced Composite Armoured Vehicle PlatformfirstUnited Kingdom, Chertsey01 January 2000The entire hull of the Advanced Composite Armoured Vehicle Platform (ACAVP) tank is manufactured from E-glass epoxy, a plastic/fibre-glass composite material strong enough to protect its crew from rifle and artillery fire but making it 10% lighter than an equivalent in-service metallic-hulled tank. The prototype vehicle was developed by the British Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA) and was first demonstrated in March 2000. It weighs just 24 tonnes (52,910 lb).To provide protection from other tanks additional metal armour is mounted on the outside of the vehicle.Although the tracks and many of the fittings on the ACAVP are made of metal, there are no metal components in the integral structure of the vehicle. Composite hulls are being developed due to weight advantages over traditional metalic equivalents. The hull is strong enough on its own to withstand rifle fire and flying shrapnel, but additional metal armour can be added as required. The basic vehicle without any additional metallic armour weighs 21 tonnes.

9424Most powerful reaction (Physics)Matter/antimatter reactionsUnknownAntimatter is similar to normal matter except the charges on the subatomic particles are reversed. So an anti-electron or a positron, is the same as an electron but with a positive, rather than a negative, charge. Similarly an antiproton will have a negative charge.Less than 100g of antimatter would produce energies similar to the power of a hydrogen bomb, if annhilated (it came into contact) with matter.

9434Most FAA aircraft pilot 'type ratings' by an individualRobert Blaine BriggsUnited States01 January 2007By February 2007, Robert Briggs (USA) had received 100 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 'type ratings', allowing him to serve as pilot in command of 100 different models of large aircraft (ones with a maximum takeoff weight in excess of 5,670 kg or 12,500 lb). Of this total, 94 are Airline Transport types, six are Experimental Aircraft typesFor smaller aircraft pilots are not required to be rated, but with aircraft of this size it is necessary to undergo testing for each model of aircraft flown.Briggs works as a FedEx DC-10 pilot. He says he 'collects' ratings as other collectors gather objects.The number of ratings increases every time a new large aircraft goes into production. It is estimated that there are now around 200 possible ratings.
9435Most expensive postage stampThe "Treskilling" YellowSwitzerland, Geneva08 November 1996The Swedish "Treskilling" Yellow, a 3 skilling-banco "yellow" stamp was sold for CHF2,870,000 ($2,255,403 / £1,367,969) by David Feldman auctioneers, Geneva, Switzerland on 8 November 1996.

9436Most expensive flag sold at auctionShackleton flag116000 UK pound(s)United Kingdom, London26 September 2002The most expensive flag sold at auction is the Royal Standard rescued by Sir Ernest Shackleton from his doomed ship, the Endurance which went to an anonymous buyer in 26 September 2002 for £116,000 ($180,600) at Christie's, London, UK.The flag was presented to Shackleton in 1914 by the dowager Queen Alexandra before he set off on his historic voyage to the Antarctic. The painted silk standard was one of only two things that Shackleton saved from his ship before it was crushed in the winter ice. The explorer then carried the flag inside his coat as he and his men set out on their heroic journey to Elephant Island. Shackleton eventually found help in South Georgia after making a 1,300-kilometre (800-mile) journey across treacherous seas in a small open boat.

9439Motorcycle speed record (fastest motorcycle)Rocky Robinson605.697 kilometre(s) per hourUnited States, 25 September 2010All photos courtesy Nathan AllredYou might not recognize a streamlined motorcycle as being a motorcycle at first glance. But all it takes is to catch one in action to know that those who ride them are literally pushing the edges of extreme speed.More than 50 years after the first modern, fully streamlined motorcycle was designed and concepted, Rocky Robinson of the USA broke the record for the fastest land speed on a motorcycle. Riding his Top Oil-Ack Attack on 25 September 2010, Robinson achieved an average speed of 605.697 km/h (376.363 mi/h) over one measured kilometer (0.6 miles) at Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, USA.The record came for the average speed across two runs, but Robinson topped out at an incredible 634 km/h (394 mph) for a single run. It wasn’t the first time Robinson had tasted the glory of unprecedented speed. His current record marked the third time in his career – and all within a 4-year span – that he broke the motorcycle land speed record. Before breaking it for the first time, the mark that Robinson surpassed had stood for 16 years.The Ack Attack contains a carbon-fiber paneled body with chrome-moly tubing. It purrs on the strength of twin Suzuki Hayabusa in-line four-cylinder engines, with a 30 psi turbocharger boost. The maximum engine speed tops out at 12,000 rpm with an incredible net horsepower of between 700-900.It measures 5.99 m (19.67 ft) in length, with a height of 76.2 cm (2.5 ft), and a weight of 748.42 kg (1,650 lb).The Ack Attack was designed by Mike Akatiff in 2001. A motorcycle racer in his own right, Akatiff has worked with five crew members to create the record-breaking beast, which has been riden by four different riders.Robinson has ridden the Ack Attack since 2006, having broken the world land speed record in 2006, 2008, and 2010.
