10778First bioluminescent mammalsChristopher ContagfirstUnited States, 01 January 1995The first bioluminescent mammals were a series of glowing mice created in 1995 by Stanford University researcher Christopher Contag and co-workers, extracting genes responsible for bioluminescence from various glowing bacteria and inserting them into Salmonella bacteria, which causes severe food poisoning. These now-glowing Salmonella bacteria, having adopted the bioluminescence genes as their own and reproducing with these genes retained from generation to generation, were then fed to some mice, and Contag and his team were able to watch directly how the Salmonella infection took hold inside these mice simply by observing the passage of the glow. Moreover, they could diminish the glow by feeding the mice with antibiotics, which reduced the infection.

10797Largest water lilyVictoria amazonicaNative to shallow freshwater lakes and bayous in the Amazon basin, the world''s largest water lily is Victoria amazonica, whose gigantic floating leaves measure up to 3 m (10 ft) across, and are held in place upon an underwater stalk 7-8 m (23-26 ft) long. The undersurface of its leaves are supported by a sturdy series of rib-like crossridges to keep the leaves flat and also prevent them from collapsing.

10798Largest region of Earth’s interiorEarth's mantleNot ApplicableEarth’s mantle is the region which begins just below the thin crust on which we live, and extends some 2,900 km (1,800 miles) down all the way to the outer liquid core. Making up around 70% of the Earth’s volume, the mantle, while made of solid rock, can gradually flow in a plastic fashion. Slow convection in the mantle is what drives plate tectonics in the Earth’s crust. Temperatures in the mantle range from 500ºC (932ºF) at the crustal boundary to over 4,000ºC (7,232ºF) at the boundary with the outer liquid core.
