10602Hottest chiliPuckerButt Pepper CompanyUnited States, rick hill, sc07 August 2013The hottest chilli is Smokin Ed's 'Carolina Reaper', grown by The PuckerButt Pepper Company (USA), which rates at an average of 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), according to tests conducted by Winthrop University in South Carolina, USA, throughout 2012. The Scoville Unit (SHU) scale is a method of quantifying a substance's 'spiciness', through determining the concentration of the chemical compounds responsible for the sensation, which are named capsaicinoids.Full story: Smokin Ed's Carolina Reaper sets new record for hottest chilliWe have American chemist Wilbur Scoville to thank for the scale that rates the chillies we chomp. In 1912, long before high-pressure liquid chromatography tests in labs, he relied on taste alone. A grain of chilli was dissolved in an alcoholic solution added to sweetened water until it could barely be noted by a panel of testers. The more dilution required, the higher the rating.ChilliScoville ratingPeperoncini100–500Jalapeño2,500–5,000Cayenne30,000–50,000 TabascoScotch bonnet80,000–300,000Bhut Jolokia800,000–1.04 millionNaga viper1.38 millionCarolina reaper 1.56 million (the hottest chilli)

10605Most produced car modelToyota CorollaNot Applicable01 February 2011Toyota Corolla is the name that has appeared on more cars than any other, with in excess of 37 million produced worldwide as of February 2011. There have been ten generations of the vehicle since it was first produced in 1966 and so it cannot, strictly speaking, be said to be the same car. More than 21 million 'old-style' VW Beetles had been produced by the time production ceased in 2003. Although the car had been improved and changed countless times in its lifetime, the Beetles rolling off the production line in the early 21st century had a great deal in common with the first Beetles, not least of all their unmistakable rounded bodywork.The updated Beetle, introduced in 1998, wasn’t really a Beetle at all. It was a Mark IV Golf with a Beetle-style body shape imposed upon it. This caused all manner of mechanical and other problems, not least the need to return the car to the dealer whenever new bulbs needed to be fitted into the headlamps – hardly what Ferdinand Porsche had in mind when designing his simple “People’s Car” back in the 1930s.

10611Largest swampThe Pantanal Swamp150000 square kilometre(s)BoliviaLocated principally in southwestern Brazil but with small areas within neighbouring Bolivia and Paraguay too, Pantanal (which is Spanish for ‘marshland’) covers a surface area of 150,000 km² (57,915 miles²) (greater than the total surface area of England! During the rainy season (December-May), 80 per cent of Pantanal is flooded, and it contains the greatest diversity of water plants in the world. As Sudd in Sudan has sometimes been referred to as the world’s largest swamp. However, even in high flood waters its total area only slightly exceeds 30,000 km² (11,585 miles²), and thus falls far short of Pantanal’s area.

10619Oldest nuclear chain reactionUnknownGabon02 January 1972On 2 June 1972, a French scientist analysing uranium ore samples in Gabon discovered tiny anomilies in the ratio of isotopes. This variation from the norm led to the discovery of the Okla natural fossil reactors. Around 2,000,000,000 years ago, these were active underground nuclear fission reactors, powered by natural uranium ore which had been concentrated by geological processes, and kept cool by the flow of natural groundwater. Sixteen of these sites have now been identified in the Okla uranium deposit, and one other in the deposit at Bangombe. Both locations are in Gabon.So much time has passed since the reactors were active that the 'waste' is no longer radioactive.
