1866Most expensive painting sold at a private salePaul Gauguin300,000,000 US dollar(s)Not Applicable, February 2015A work by French Post-Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin, Nafea Faa Ipoipo (When Will You Marry?), was sold from the private collection of retired Sotheby’s executive Rudolf Staechelin in February 2015 for $300 m (£210.4 m), the most ever paid in a private art sale. The 1892 oil painting shows two Tahitian women, and is one of a series of works created during the first of Gauguin’s two visits to the French Polynesian island, which took place in 1891. The painting was bought by Qatar’s Sheikha al-Mayassa. The oil-rich emirate’s royal family and museums have been increasingly acquiring high-value works of art. Al-Mayassa controls a $1-bn annual art budget in her role as chair of the Qatar Museums heritage organization.

1870Smallest 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.
1871Greatest elevation difference by a non-stop three-roped cable carFansipan Sa Pa Cable Car Services and Tourism LLC1410 metre(s)Vietnam, Sa Pa19 November 2015The greatest elevation difference by a non-stop three-roped cable car is 1,410 m (4625 ft 11.7 in) and was achieved by Fansipan Sa Pa Cable Car Services and Tourism LLC (Vietnam) at Sa Pa, Lao Cai, Vietnam, on 19 November 2015. It took two years to construct and it takes over 20 minutes to ride on one of the cable cars one way.
1872Most expensive living artist at auctionJeff Koons58,400,000 US dollar(s)United States, New York12 November 2013Jeff Koons’s "Balloon Dog (Orange)" – a 12-foot-high, orange-tinted, stainless steel sculpture resembling a dog made from balloons – was sold at Christie’s, New York, USA, on 12 November 2013, for $58.4 m (£41 m), the most ever paid for a work by a living artist at auction. The sale was made to an anonymous telephone bidder, and broke the $55 m pre-sale estimate. Koons has made a career out of creating giant stainless steel balloon animals, with polished mirror surfaces, in a range of colours. "Balloon Dog (Orange)" is one of five "Balloon Dog" sculptures, created in the 1990s. The other four are coloured yellow, blue, magenta and red. His other work includes a 43-foot topiary terrier, the body paint design of a 2010 BMW Le Mans race car and the cover of Lady Gaga’s 2013 album Artpop.
1873Darkest manmade substanceKing Abdullah University of Science and Technology99% percentageNot Applicable, 19 October 2015The darkest manmade substance is a black material made of gold nanoparticles and called "dark chamaleon dimers", which absorbs more than 99% of visible light, over the whole visible range. This means that material absorbs 99% of all rays of light with different colours, from the violet to the red, i.e., with wavelengths between 400 nm and 800 nm, reaching a maximum absorption of 99.2% for light with a wavelength of 497 nm (corresponding to a blue colour). The material also absorbs more than 98% of infrared light, i.e., rays of light not visible to the human eye, with wavelengths between 800 nm and 1200 nm. The material is made of gold nanoparticles of different shapes, joined together more specifically, a nanosphere with a diameter of about 50 nm is attached to a nanorod about 100 nm long. The particular combination of nanorods and nanosphere gives the material this exceptional absorbance properties. The nanoparticles can be dispersed in water solutions and also deposited in the form of a thin coating.The material was made by scientists from KAUST (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia), in a joint collaboration between Prof. Yu Han and Prof. Andrea Fratalocchi. An ideal material that absorbs 100% of light is referred to as “black body” to date, "dark chamaleon dimers" comes closest to being a perfect black body.Nanoparticles are particles with dimensions of nanometres (nm), where 1 nm is equal to 10–9 m, i.e. one billionth of a metre, or about 100,000 times smaller than a human hair. This material is darker and more absorbent than the previous darkest material, Vantablack (made of carbon nanotubes), as Vantablack absorbs 99.96% at a 663 nm only if the light source is exactly perpendicular to the material if the light source has an incident angle other than 0 o, the absorbance is lower of a few percent. This material is thinner than Vantablack in fact, Vantablack is 0.5–1 mm thick, while this is about 100 times thinner, at just 10 micron thick. This means that less material is needed to have such high absorption. When the same quantity of material is employed, the carbon nanotubes composing Vantablack absorb between 70%–85% in the visible and infrared wavelengths, while this material absorbs > 98%.
