16234Longest war memorial wallVietnam Veterans Memorial150.42 metre(s)United States, WashingtonThe longest memorial wall for war veterans is the 150.42-m Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC, USA, completed in 1982 according to the designs of American artist and designer Maya Ying Lin. Vietnam Veterans Memorial consists of a 75.21-m-long wall made of dark gabbro granite, onto which the names of 58,191 servicemen and women were inscribed in a highly regular font spacing and 1.35-cm height, listed in chronological order of death. The wall is sunk into a crevice in the ground, reaching 3.12 m in the middle and descending to just 20 cm at the two edges. Costing around US$4,284,000, the wall is supported by 140 concrete pilings driven 11 m into the bedrock below. Conceptually, Maya Lin has described how she “imagined taking a knife and cutting into the earth, opening it up, an initial violence and pain that in time would heal”. After Lin’s competition win, some negative criticism led to the 1984 addition to the design of the more conventional “The Three Soldiers” sculpture to one side of the memorial wall.A half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the “Moving Wall” was also constructed in 1984, touring the USA.
16235Smallest working drillLance Abernethy17 millimetre(s)New Zealand, 21 March 2015The smallest cordless drill measures 17 x 7 x 13.5 mm and holds a 0.5-mm twist drill that is 11.75 mm long.

16244First description of a crown flashMonthly Weather Reviewfirst firstNot Applicable, An extremely rare meteorological phenomenon, crown flash, was first scientifically described in the journal Monthly Weather Review in 1885. It can occur at the top of thunderstorms and appears as a bright patch of sky not dissimilar to a sundog. Unlike a typical sundog, however, these features move and realign within seconds, forming beams and loops of light. The most likely explanation is that crown flash is caused by changing electrical fields within the thundercloud, to which plate- or needle-shaped ice crystals align, preferentially reflecting sunlight.Due to the global emergence of camera phones, there are now several examples of amateur footage of this phenomenon on social media.

16258Earliest cavity wall insulationOverstone Hallfirst firstUnited Kingdom, NorthamptonConstructed in 1860, Overstone Hall in Northampton, UK, is the world’s earliest building to boast double walls (two skins of masonry, separated by an air gap), thus endowing it with cavity wall insulation. It was designed by architect William Milford Teulon for Lord and Lady Overstone as a highly “modern" residence, and behind the Grade-II-listed historical façade lie a central heating system (called Mr Price’s Apparatus), gas lighting and a butler’s lift. Overstone Hall took so long to build that Lady Overstone died before it was completed, and Lord Overstone reputedly disliked the house so much that he never moved in.In the twentieth century, Overstone Hall has been the home of a wealthy shipping magnate, a college, and a girls’ public school, before being acquired by New Testament Church of God for £100,000 in 1980. On 16 April 2001 a fire left the estate in semi-ruined state.
16259Smallest batteryRice UniversityUnited States, Houston29 July 2011Engineers at Rice University, Houston, USA, have developed a battery 60,000 times smaller than a conventional AAA. At only 0.5 microns high, and an almost invisible 150 nanometres thick, the battery is formed by nanowires, one half being the cathode and one half being the anode. The battery is halfway between conventional chemical-reaction batteries and a "super-capacitor" that can hold charge and release it as demanded. To put the battery's size into perspective, the wavelength of deep blue light is 400 nanometres, so this battery is less than one half the wavelength of the deepest blue light humans can see. Larger batteries can be made by using a copper-coated nanowire template of tubes, and filling half of each tube with a nickel-tin alloy to create the anode. A layer of polyethylene-oxide gel is then used to insulate the alloy from the cathode formed from a polyaniline material. A layer of aluminium is deposited on top of this structure to complete the circuit. Theoretically, these batteries may be stacked to form any potential size of battery in the future.
