12854Longest reparations bill in modern timesGermanyGermany03 October 2010On 3 October 2010, Germany paid the final £59 million part of its war reparations as compensation and punishment for the First World War (1914-1918). The original bill set by the Allied victors at the Treaty of Versailles on 28 June 1919 was £22 billion. The debt was not paid during the Hitler era but, after the end of the Second World War, in 1945, West Germany assumed responsibility and settled the bill in 1983. However, in the London Debt Agreement of 1953 there was stipulation that, should Germany ever be reunited, then interest on the multi-million-pound foreign loans taken out in the Weimar era to pay off the reparations bill should be repaid and payments began again in 1996 after German reunification. Thus it has taken over 91 years to clear the debt – the longest reparations bill in history.
12855Longest glow-in-the-dark (chemiluminescent) necklaceMr Tom PringleUnited Kingdom, Edinburgh09 April 2011The longest glow-in-the-dark (chemiluminescent) necklace measured 326.44 m (1,071 ft) and was created by Dr Bunhead's alter ego, Tom Pringle, with the help of Helen Maynard-Casely and The Glow Company (all UK) as part of the Edinburgh International Science Festival at Dr Bunhead's Pyromania show, in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK, on 9 April 2011. Chemiluminescence occurs when the solid esther diphenyl oxalate (Cv14Hv10Ov4, trademark name Cyalume) reacts with hydrogen peroxide, producing photons of light. The two chemicals are isolated inside plastic tubing, and when the tube is snapped, the fragile divider between the two breaks, allowing the chemicals to react together. To achieve a range of colours, chemical dyes can be added: e.g., 9,10-Diphenylanthracene for blue, Rhodamine B for red.The longest glow-in-the-dark necklace was worn around the necks of 100 children, simultaneously.

12869Oldest Star Mapivory tabletGermany, Ach Valley01 January 1979A tiny section of mammoth tusk found in a cave in the Ach Valley, Germany, in 1979, is believed to be between 32,500 and 38,000 years old. It features a carving of a figure whose limbs are positioned in the same shape as the stars in the constellation of Orion. The ivory tablet measures just 38 x 14 x 4 mm (1.5 x 0.5 x 0.1 in). However, archaeologists believe that notches carved into the edges of the tablets suggest that it was originally intended to be this size, rather than part of a greater section.The tablet was created by the Aurignacian people, of whom little is known. It is also one of the oldest known representations of a human.Further info:See weblink:
