15302Largest robotic arm in spaceUnknownThe Canadarm 2, built by the Canadian Space Agency measures 17.5 m 57.7 ft in length and weighs 1641 kg 3618 lbs. It was attached to the International Space Station on 22 April 2001 during a 7-hour spacewalk by US astronaut Scott Parazynski and Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield - the first Canadian ever to walk in space. This new arm is based on the technology of the original Canadarm, which is used on the space shuttle. Canadarm 2, which will remain permanently in space, can handle and manipulate masses up to 116,000 kg 255,736 lbs - almost 4 times the maximum capacity of the shuttle's robotic arm. Also, the Canadarm 2 can detach from the station at either end and 'inchworm' its way around the station's hull in order to handle construction and cargo on any part of the station. Other high-tech features include automatic collision avoidance and sensors which provide a sense of touch to the arm. It can be controlled autonomously or by astronauts, utilising 4 colour video cameras located on the arm.

15310Largest flower auctionBloemenveiling AalsmeerNetherlands, Aalsmeer01 January 2004The world's largest flower auction and flower market is Bloemenveiling Aalsmeer (VBA) in Aalsmeer, The Netherlands. Every weekday approximately 19 million flowers and 2 million plants of over 12,000 varieties are sold with a daily turnover of €6 million ($7.2 million, £4 million). The total area of the building covers 999,000 m² (10 million ft²) which is equal to 165 soccer fields.The VBA has a network of 7,000 growers who provide the plants/flowers and almost 1,400 buyers who export them. Approximately 85% of the goods are exported that day to European countries and 10% go to USA. Imports generally come from Africa, Europe and Scandinavia. The auctioning takes place using 13 clocks in five auction rooms handling 55,000 transactions per day.A system known as 'Dutch clock auction' is used, whereby the auctioneer sets the starting price high and prices then go down until a buyer pushes a button to freeze the price. The risk being wait too long and another buyer will get the goods, but press too soon and the buyer might pay too much. The VBA was established in 1968, following a merger of two Aalsmeer auctions: Veiling Bloemenlust and Centrale Aalsmeerse. These auctions themselves began in Aalsmeer in 1911/1912 where growers would gather in a cafe and sell their produce.

15326First conjoined twins (siamese)Chang and Eng Bunkerfirst, Meklong11 May 1811Conjoined twins derive the name Siamese from the celebrated Chang and Eng ("Left" and "Right" in Thai) born at Meklong on 11 May 1811 of Chinese parents. They were joined by a cartilaginous band at the chest. Having taken on the name Bunker, they married (in April 1843) the Misses Sarah and Adelaide Yates of Wilkes County, North Carolina, USA, and fathered 10 and 12 children respectively. They died within three hours of each other on 17 January 1874, aged 62 years 251 days.Chang and Eng were discovered and toured as curiosities by the British merchant Robert Hunter. After their contract with Hunter expired, the twins took themselves on the road and, after a stop in North Carolina in 1839, decided to call the place home and adopt their American surname.The 12.5-cm (5-in) band of skin and cartilage that connected the twins could easily be divided surgically today - their livers were fused, but each was fully formed and easily seperable - but was inconceivable at the time.Chang and Eng were not, of course, the first ever instance of conjoined twins. The earliest depiction of the condition dates back to a Neolithic statue found in Anatolia of two ample women joined at the hip.
