1539Largest starVY Canis MajorisDue to the physical difficulties in directly measuring the size of a distant star, the identity of the largest star is a matter for debate amongst astronomers. The current most likely candidate is VY Canis Majoris, a red supergiant some 5,000 light years away. Estimates of its size give it a diameter of between 2.5 and 3 billion km (1.55 and 1.86 billion miles), or 1,800 – 2,100 times that of the Sun. If placed at the centre of the Solar System, its outer surface would reach beyond the orbit of Jupiter.
1540Brightest star viewed from EarthSiriusSirius A (alpha Canis Majoris), 8.64 light years distant, is the brightest star in the night sky with an apparent magnitude of -1.46 at present, but this will rise to a maximum of -1.67 by AD 61,000. It has a diameter of 2.33 million km (1.45 million miles), a mass 2.14 times that of the Sun, and is visually 24 times brighter.Although Sirius is 24 times more luminous that the Sun, its distance of 8.64 light years means it is roughly half a million times further away from us. The unit of measurement 'light years' is the distance light travels in one year. This means that if the brightness of Sirius changed, it would be 8.64 years before we noticed it.
1541Largest can pyramid - 30 minsMalaysia Can Team, INTI College Subang JayaMalaysia, Kuala Lumpur27 September 2000The Malaysia Can team, consisting of students from the INTI College Subang Jaya, constructed a pyramid consisting of 9,455 empty aluminum beverage cans in 24 minutes on September 23, 2000, at the Midvalley Mega Mall in Kuala Lumpur. The pyramid had a square base of 30 x 30 cans, measuring 1.98 x 1.98 meters (6.5 x 6.5 ft.).The key to breaking this world record was preparation, according to the organizers. Two months before the event the team members met up twice per week for three-hour training sessions, and in the final month this was increased to five 2-hour meetings per week, at which they worked on their physical strength, stamina, can placement and can feeding. After considering various construction strategies, a five-phase plan was devised in which different members of the team were designated either stackers, feeders or movers, according to which phase of the plan they had reached. By the third phase, when the structure was 20 cans high, scaffolding was needed for stacking the top layers. When complete, the pyramid had 30 layers of cans reaching a height of 3.36 meters (11.02 ft.). SIZE=2

1544First 鯜' on a skateboardTony HawkfirstUnited States, San Francisco27 June 1999Skateboard legend Tony Hawk (USA) became the first person to achieve a '900' (two and a half airborne rotations) in competition at the ESPN X Games Five in San Francisco, California, USA on 27 June 1999. The so-called 900 (named after the fact that the skater spins two and a half rotations) is regarded as one of the most difficult tricks in vert skateboarding.
1545Most contaminated lake (radioactivity)Lake KarachayRussiaLake Karachay in the Chelyabinsk province of Russia has accumulated 120 million curies of radioactivity and absorbed nearly 100 times more strontium 90 and caesium 137 than was released at Chernobyl. If a person stood on the shore of the lake he would receive a radiation exposure rate of 600 roentgens an hour. This is 2,000 times greater radiation than that emitted during a normal chest X-ray and strong enough to kill a person within an hour.The lake is near a Soviet nuclear facility called Mayak Chemical Combine. It was here that the Soviet nuclear program was initiated in 1948 and where the first weapons grade plutonium was first produced for the Soviet Union. The plant was shut down in 1990. Unfortunately currently nothing is being done about this situation. The radiation that is being emitted either becomes airborne by a process of evaporation and is dispersed by the wind or is absorbed by sand particles and deposited at the bottom of the lake.
