14071Rarest crocodilianChinese alligatorChina, Yangtze River23 December 2002There are under 200 Chinese alligators (Alligator sinensis) living in the wild in 2002 making it one of the most endangered species on Earth. Found in the lower parts of the Yangtze River in wetland habitats, the species can grow to 2 m (6.5 ft) and weigh 40 kg (88 lb). Their numbers have dwindled over the years due to habitat destruction and killing by local farmers who fear damage to their agricultural land.
14072Largest maze, ice mazeRoaming BuffaloesUnited States, Buffalo26 February 2010The largest ice maze is 1,194.33 m² (12,855.68 ft²) in area, achieved by the Arctic Glacier Ice Maze (USA) at the Buffalo Powder Keg Festival in Buffalo, New York, USA, on 26 February 2010.The maze was created by Roaming Buffaloes, a social networking club for Western New Yorkers. The maze's width was 25.85 m (84.80 ft) and the length was 46.21 m (151.60 ft). The height of the walls was 1.83 m (6 ft). The maze was constructed using 2,171 blocks of each, each weighing 136.08 kg (300 lb).
14073Fastest overtime goal scored in an NHL matchMats SundinUnknown, New York City’s Madison Square Garden30 December 1995The quickest goal from the start of an overtime period was six seconds by Mats Sundin (Sweden), playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs, against the Blues in St. Louis on 30 December 1995. Simon Gagne’s (Canada) goal at 0:07 of overtime on 5 January 2006 at the New York Rangers (USA) at New York City’s Madison Square Garden was the second-fastest overtime goal since the five-minute overtime period was introduced for the 1983-84 season.
14074Most NHL wins, one road tripPhildelphia FlyersUnited States01 January 2006The Philadelphia Flyers finished their franchise record road trip during December 2005 and January 2006 with an 8-2-1 record, setting a new NHL mark for the most wins on a single stretch of games away from home. Their 17 points on the trip is also a new league record, far surpassing the old mark of 13 points set by the Montreal Canadiens in 1968–69.A road trip is when a team travels to plaly its games as the away of visiting team.
14075Smallest nanotube brushesVinod VeeduUnited States, New York01 September 2005The smallest nanotube brushes have bristles with an average diameter of 30 nm, which means that they are more than a thousand times smaller than current commercial brushes. The brushes have been created by researchers of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute of Troy, New York (Dr. Pulickel M. Ajayan), and the University of Hawaii, Manoa, Honolulu (Mr. Vinod P. Veedu, Dr. Anyuan Cao and Dr. Mehrdad N. Ghasemi-Nejhad).The nanotube brushes have multiple functions and have been tested in a variety of tasks that range from cleaning microscopic surfaces to serving as electrical contact.From the BBC:The bristles’ secret is carbon nanotubes, tiny straw-like molecules just 30 billionth of a metre across. They are incredibly tough and yet flexible enough that they will yield when pushed from the side. The multifunctional brushes can be used for sweeping up nano-dust, painting microstructures and even cleaning up pollutants in water.The group of lead scientists Pulickel Ajayan has previously shown how carbon nanotubes can be grown controllably, and the team has now used the trick to make nanobrushes shaped like toothbrushes, bottle brushes and cotton-buds.
14076Thinnest chipHitachiUnited States, San Francisco05 February 2006At the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco, USA on 5 February 2006, Hitachi Ltd. (Japan), announced it had developed and verified operation of the world's smallest and thinnest chip, measuring 0.15 mm² in area, and 7.5 microns (µm) thick. Due to the chip being thinner than paper (typically 80-100 microns), one of its wireless applications could be as an intelligent watermark.
14077Most successful submarine commanderLothar von Arnaud de la PerièreGermanyLothar von Arnaud de la Perière (the captain of the German submarine U-35) fought in the German Imperial Navy in World War I, during which he sank an astounding 194 ships with a total tonnage of 454,000 Gross Registered Ton (GRT). In many cases the vessels were unescorted merchant ships, meaning that the submarine's crew would board the vessel, inspect its cargo, and allow the crew to board lifeboats. It would then be sunk using the sub's 88 mm (3.5 in) deck gun to conserve torpedos.Even though he was operating in the very early days of practical submarine warfare, de la Perière's achievement remains unmatched to this day.A third tank commander, Walter Schroif, is credited, by some, with 161 kills, but there are currently no records to substantiate this claim.
14078Most women breast feeding (multiple venue)Nurturers of the Earth, Children for Breastfeeding15128 peoplePhilippines, MakatiThe most women breastfeeding simultaneously at multiple venues was 15,128 at 295 sites across the Philippines on 2 May 2007. The event was organised by Children for Breastfeeding Inc., the Department of Social Welfare and Development, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority and the Nurturers of the Earth Inc.
14079Fastest rotating part of the EarthInner coreNot ApplicablePrecise measurements in earthquake timings have revealed that the Earth's inner core, a solid ball of iron and nickel around 2,442 km (1,517 miles) across, is spinning slightly faster than the outer liquid core and the rest of the Earth. Each year the inner core moves ahead of the Earth's surface by around 0.3-0.5 degrees - a rate of around 50,000 times the speed that the Earth's continental plates move apart.
14080Most expensive dessertSerendipity 325000 US dollar(s)United States, New York City07 November 2007The most expensive dessert is The Frrrozen Haute Chocolate ice cream sundae costing $25,000 (£12,000), which was added to the menu of the Serendipity 3 restaurant, New York, USA on 7 November 2007.The dessert uses a fine blend of 28 cocoas, including 14 of the world's most expensive. The sundae was made in partnership with luxury jeweller Euphoria New York. The dessert is decorated with 5 g (0.17 oz) of edible 23-karat gold and is served in a goblet lined with edible gold. The base of the goblet is an 18-karat gold bracelet with 1 carat of white diamonds. The dessert is eaten with a gold spoon, itself decorated with white and chocolate-colored diamonds, which can also be taken home.
14081Oldest tyrannosauroidUnknownChina, Liaoning Province31 October 2004Dilong paradoxus, the oldest known ancestor of Tyrannosaurus Rex, lived between 128 and 139 million years ago - some 60-70 million years before T-Rex. It measured some 1.5 m (5 ft) in length, stood on two legs, and had longer arms than T.Rex. There is also evidence that this creature had hair-like protofeathers on its jaw and the tip of its tail. Dilong paradoxus was discovered in the famous fossil beds of Liaoning Province, China, by a team of Chinese and American palaeontologists, and announced in the journal Nature in October 2004.
14082Smallest animal used in detecting land minesHoneybee12 millimetre(s)United States, Montana01 August 2003The smallest animal currently being trained to potentially detect land mines is the honeybee (Apis mellifera), which measures 12 mm (0.5 in) long. In August 2003, field tests led by researchers from the University of Montana, in cooperation with Sandia National Laboratories, S&K Electronics and Montana State University (all USA), noted a 98% success rate in tests observing the insects hovering in response to chemicals leaking into the air from buried explosives.The 98% refers to tests with chemical vapour concentrations as parts per billion. This becomes 95% with very low parts per trillion.The field trials have been in places like Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, USA where explosives have been buried for years and are leaking. The team hopes to move to real fields soon.The hairs on a honeybee are such that they easily gather chemical and biological particles.Training the bees to locate the explosives is similar to techniques used to train dogs, that is being teaching them to associate a smell with a food reward (in this case sugar-water). The advantages of developing honeybees for this purpose are their cheap running costs and the fact bees naturally recruit other bees themselves and teach them.Pic: Alamy
14083Smallest dinosaur footprintUnknown1.78 centimetre(s)United Kingdom, Isle of Skye,Highland11 October 2004The smallest dinosaur footprint discovered to date measures just 1.78 cm (0.7 in) from the heel to the tip of digit III. it was discovered on the Isle of Skye, Highland, UK by Dr Neil Clark (UK) of the Hunterian Museum of the University of Glasgow, UK, and announced in June 2004. The footprint was made during the Middle Jurassic period, around 165 million years ago.The full length of the footprint is 1.78 cm (0.7 in) from heel to tip of digit III. The specimen number is GLAHM 114913 and it is held in the collections of the Hunterian Museum, University of Glasgow. The footprint came from the Middle Jurassic Kilmaluag Formation on the Isle of Skye. While the exact species of dinosaur which made the print is unknown, it is likely to be similar to coleophysis.

14088Strongest magnetic fieldJupiterNot ApplicableJupiter's magnetic field is the strongest of all the planets. Generated by the liquid metallic hydrogen in its interior, the field is around 19,000 times stronger than Earth's and extends several million kilometres towards the Sun and almost all the way to Saturn in the direction away from the Sun. If it was visible to the naked eye, Jupiter's magnetic field would appear around the same size as the full Moon.
14089Densest objects in the universeBlack holesNot ApplicableBlack holes are the remnants of stars that ended their lives as supernovae. They are characterised by a region of space in which gravity is so strong that not even light can escape. The boundary of this region is known as the event horizon and, at the centre of the black hole, is the singularity, where the mass of the dead star is compressed to a single point of zero size and infinite density. It is this singularity that generates the powerful gravitational field of a black hole.
14090Smelliest species of frogVenezuelan skunk frogSouth AmericaThe smelliest species of frog is the suitably-named Venezuelan skunk frog (Aromobates nocturnus), whose vile-smelling skin secretion is released for defence purposes and actually contains the same stink-producing organosulphur compound that is present in the famously foul anal emissions released by skunks. Yet in spite of its awful stench, this extraordinary frog remained unknown to science until as recently as 1991 when it was finally described and named. Measuring 6.2 cm (2.44 in) long, it is the largest member of the poison-arrow frog family, Dendrobatidae.
14091Oldest spider silkEarly Cretacious PeriodLebanon, Jezzine11 August 2003The oldest spider silk in the world dates from the Early Cretaceous Period, more than 120 million years ago and was described in the journal 'Nature' by Swiss researcher Dr Samuel Zschokke from the University of Basel. The strand is 4 mm (0.1 in) long and has tiny glue droplets which in modern-day spiders are used to catch insects. The specimen was recovered in 1969 from amber beds located near Jezzine, Lebanon but it was only in 2003 that their importance was recognised.
14092Highest production of military jet aircraftMiG 21Russia01 January 2006It is estimated that over 11,000 Russian MIG-21 'Fishbed' jet fighters have been produced since the first prototype flew in 1955, making it the most common jet-powered military aircraft ever, and the military aircraft produced in the greatest numbers in the post-WWII era. The aircraft has been produced in over 30 different variants and has seen service with around 50 air forces around the world. While the Russian MiG 21 Fishbed is the most widely produced jet fighter in the world (around 11,000), the US F-16 Fighting Falcon is the most widely produced western fighter. The US Air Force itself has around 1,348 F-16s more than 4000 F-16s have been sold worldwide to 24 different nations in over 110 different versions.
