2364Sharpest object man-madeUniversity of Alberta, National Institute for NanotechnologyCanada, National Institute for NanotechnologyScientists at the National Institute for Nanotechnology and the University of Alberta (both Canada) have created a tungsten needle that tapers to a thickness of just one atom. The breakthrough, announced in May 2006, should allow the construction of better super high-resolution electron microscopes. The needle, made by postdoc Mohamed Rezeq at the University of Alberta’s National Institute for Nanotechnology, starts out much blunter. However, exposed to a pure nitrogen atmosphere, a rapid slimming begins. At the start oft he process the tungsten is chemically very reactive and the nitrogen roughens the tungsten surface. An electric field is created by applying a voltage to the tungsten and is at its maximum force at the tip of the needle where atoms are driven away leaving a sharp point.

2370Largest beaver lodgeBeaver (Castor canadensis)Unknown01 January 2011Beavers (Castor canadensis) of North America use mud, wood, vegetation and stones to dam up water to form a pond and then build a lodge for winter refuge. The largest lodge ever recorded was 12.1 m (40 ft) across and 4.8 m (16 ft) high.On average, a family of 4 beavers can build 1.5 m (4 ft 11 in) of dam wall per day. The design of the dam usually reflects the rate of the water flow, i.e the faster the water flows, the more curved the dam will be. Once the pond has been created, canals are excavated for the beavers to reach safely into the wooded areas (to collect more wood) by water and not on land where predators dwell. The longest documented canal measured 400 m (1,312 ft). Beavers cut their own trees to strip it of branches and leaves. The largest tree cut down by a beaver was a cottonwood measuring (37 in) diameter and (110 ft) tall!http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/wildfacts/factfiles/615.shtml
