2404Smallest comic stripClaudia Puhlfürst and Andrew Zonenberg, Juana Knits the Planet300 micrometre(s)Germany, Created by German-based cartoonist Claudia Puhlfürst, “Juana Knits the Planet” is a comic strip microfabricated on a single strand of human hair by American Andrew Zonenberg using a piece of equipment called a FEI Versa 3-D Focused Ion Beam (FIB) system. The strip, which depicts a woman creating a world through science, manipulating DNA and coding on computers, is composed of 12 panels, each of which measures 25 Micrometres (µm) by 25 Micrometres (µm). The strip was unveiled in May 2014 to help promote the open-source science and hacking conference EHSM (the Exceptional Hardware and Software Meeting) held in Hamburg on 27–29 June 2014. The strip can only be viewed using electron microscope techniques, such as those employed in Focused Ion Beam equipment. Such equipment can be used to both produce images of very small objects (using transmission electron microscopy) and to cut them, by blasting the object with a fine beam of gallium ions. Because beams of gallium ions can cut objects to the nanometre level – 1,000 times smaller than a macrometre and finer than any laser – there is still scope for someone to make an even smaller comic strip.The strip is 12 panels long, coming in a row of three panels on a second row of nine panels. Each panel is 25 Micrometres (µm) by 25 Micrometres (µm). This format and size was chosen so that viewers could see the width of the hair used as the canvas for the strip. So the total length of the drawn strip is 300 Micrometres (µm), but including the gutters (the space between the panels) and accounting for its unusual layout, the strip is 55 Micrometres (µm) tall by 225 Micrometres long (µm).A Micrometre (µm) is an SI unit of length. 1 Micrometre = 1 Micrometer (US Spelling) = 1 Micron (µ) - a colloquial term that is also used, but is discouraged in scientific literature.The average human hair is 80 micrometres (µm) wide.According to Andrew Zonenberg, the PhD student who cut the strip: "The ion beam functions almost like a microscopic sandblaster as each ion hits the specimen it may dislodge an atom from the surface. By aiming the beam at different parts of the sample it's possible to make extremely precise, nanoscale cuts."The plan was "to engrave a comic strip depicting the various themes of the conference into a human hair... I cut a short piece of hair from my girlfriend's head and went up to campus.""It took a few attempts to get good, clean cuts as the hair was so soft compared to the materials I usually work with such as silicon, aluminium and glass. It was very easy to totally destroy the surrounding area."After an hour or so of tinkering I got things adjusted right and the remainder of the engraving took only around 30 minutes."Each panel of the comic is 25 microns square, the smallest lines are around 200 nanometers wide - fairly big by nanotech standards."While the Versa is capable of making substantially finer cuts, a few nm under ideal conditions, I wanted the comic to be large enough that the entire diameter of the hair could still be seen to put the size in perspective."
2405Longest kickoff return for a touchdownCordarrelle Patterson109 yard(s)United States, 27 October 2013The longest kickoff return for a touchdown in NFL history is 109 yards (99.66 m), the longest possible kick return, accomplished by Cordarrelle Patterson (USA) playing for the Minnesota Vikings against the Green Bay Packers (both USA), on 27 October 2013.

2407Crash tests (most)W R "Rusty" Haight998 timesUnited States, 08 February 2015By 8 Feb 2015, W R "Rusty" Haight (USA) had endured 998 collisions in cars as a "human crash test dummy", due to his work as a traffic-collision reconstructionist. He is said to be planning his 1,000th crash test for June 2015.In each collision Rusty and the vehicle are fitted with an array of sensors to gather data on the crash. He runs a course to teach law enforcement accident investigators and engineers about understanding crashes, and participates in private or publically funded studies to improve crash safety in vehicles.
2408Fastest bird (diving)Frightful (owned by Ken Franklin), Peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus)389.46 kilometre(s) per hourUnited States, Not applicableThe fastest dive by a bird is that of a peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus), which has been estimated as reaching a terminal velocity of approximately 300 km/h (186 mph) when in a diving stoop. At this point the peregrine falcon is the fastest animal. In 2005, "Frightful", a peregrine falcon owned by Ken Franklin of Friday Harbor, Washington, USA, was clocked at 242 mph (389.46 km/h) while stooping (diving after prey) from nearly three miles in the air. "Frightful", then a six-year-old, 40.64-cm-long (16-in) bird weighing 997.9 grams (2.2 lb), had wings opening to a full 104.14 cm (41 in) span. To clock Frightful's mid-dive speed, Ken Franklin and a few mathematicians and engineers fastened a 113.4-gram (4-oz) computer chip taken from a a skydiver’s Pro-Track recording altimeter/computer to Frightful’s tail feathers and measured how far she fell in a certain time interval.

2413First colour photograph of the green flashVatican Observatoryfirst firstItaly, The green flash is a rare atmospheric phenomenon that occurs immediately after sunset or just before sunrise. Essentially it is a mirage of the Sun, in which the highly refracted sunlight produces a green spot at the top of the Sun. The effect is best seen in stable atmospheric conditions in which the observer has a clear unobstructed view of the horizon. The first colour photographic proof of this elusive phenomenon was taken by DKJ O’Connell of the Vatican Observatory, Italy, in 1960. The green flash only ever lasts a second or two, just as the Sun breaches the horizon.

2420Most powerful laser by outputLaser for Fast Ignition Experiments2000000000000000 watt(s)Japan, Osaka27 July 2015On 27 July 2015, researchers at Osaka University, Osaka, Japan, fired the Laser for Fast Ignition Experiments (LFEX) for one trillionth of a second at a power of 2 petawatts. The LFEX is 100 m in length. Because the firing of the laser was so short, the energy in the beam itself was only enough to run a microwave oven for around two seconds. The team at Osaka is eventually planning on constructing a 10-petawatt laser. 2 petawatts is 2,000,000,000,000,000 watts.

2423Highest team score in an ICC World Cup match (male)AustraliaAustralia, Perth04 March 2015Australia posted 417 for 6 off 50 overs in a World Cup pool match against Afghanistan at the Western Australia Cricket Association Ground (aka the WACA) in Perth, Australia, on 4 March 2015.India were the holders of the previous ICC World Cup record, racking up 413 for 5 in a 257-run defeat of Bermuda (156 all out) at Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad, on 19 March 2007.Australia's innings was built around 178 off 133 balls (including 19 fours and five sixes) from opener David Warner, with major contributions from Steve Smith (95 off 98 balls) and Glenn Maxwell, who weighed in with 88 off 39 balls (including six fours and seven sixes). The team averaged 8.34 runs per over in 50 overs. Australia's 417 for 6 was the seventh-highest team score in a One-Day International (ODI). Sri Lanka's 443 for 9 against the Netherlands at VRA Ground in Amstelveen, Netherlands, on 4 July 2006 remains the highest ever ODI score.Warner's 178 was the 20th-highest score by a player in ODIs (a list led by Rohit Sharma's 264 for India against Sri Lanka on 13 November 2014) and the fifth-highest in a World Cup match (Chris Gayle's 215 for the West Indies against Zimbabwe in the same tournament, on 24 February 2015, is the highest score at the World Cup). Warner's 100 was the 20th of the 2015 World Cup - the same number of hundreds that were scored in the whole of the 2007 tournament. In 2011, a tournament record 24 hundreds were scored. As of 4 March 2015, three of the four highest World Cup totals in history (i.e., since 1975) had been set at the 2015 tournament, with Australia's 417 for 6 followed by India's 413 for 5 against Bermuda on 19 March 2007, and South Africa's innings totals of 411 for 4 against Ireland on 3 March 2015 and 408 for 5 against the West Indies on 27 February 2015.

2429Supreme Court rules on gay marriage, Brazil looks to unify with soccer, and Independence Day 2 signs starsIn a landmark decision during a busy week in Washington, the Supreme Court of the United States today made a pair of rulings that favor gay marriage, overturning the federal Defense of Marriage Act and rejecting the appeal of a California marriage ban. While the American community receives the news, we're reminded that other nations sit on different points of the gay marriage spectrum: in 2010, Iceland's prime minister Johanna Sigurdardottir became the first head of government to enter into a same sex marriage, wedding her civil partner on June 27 that year.One recent wedding which has garnered plenty of headlines this week is that of George Lucas, to his bride Mellody Hobson. It's the second marriage for the "Star Wars" creator and what a life the two of them should expect to share together as a power couple: Hobson is the president of Ariel Investments and chairman of Dreamworks Animation while Lucas, of course, just so happens to sit atop the largest personal fortune made from a film franchise with his net worth of $3.9 million (£2.54 million). I wonder if his "I Do" went anything like this.In Brazil, national soccer team manager Luiz Felipe Scolari hopes that a trophy for the Seleção in the Confederations Cup can unite the home nation, which has undergone heavy civil unrest in recent weeks. As of publishing, the semi-final between Brazil and Uruguay had not yet gone to full time, but already Brazil has broken a record this competition: with three group stage victories, it's now 10 consecutive Confederations Cup wins for the Canarinha, the most ever in the competition.Lastly, in this cinema age of franchises, it's no surprise that the iconic '90s movie "Independence Day" is getting a sequel made. Good news for fans of the first one: Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman have agreed to come back for the second installment. Bad news: Will Smith has not and probably will not. It will be interesting to see how the film does without its superstar protagonist. Smith's career has made him such a megastar that at two separate points he held the record for highest annual earnings for a film actor, reaching a peak of $80 million (£52.2 million) in 2008.
24302013 in World Records - October: Grand Theft Auto smashes, Pele scores, and the world's tallest man gets marriedTallest living man Sultan Kosen's wedding highlighted October.For our friends in the UK, October was all about wondering if it was still too early to start preparing for Christmas. And for those of us in the U.S., it was all about finding that perfect Halloween costume. For Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, it was about finally teaming up to headline a movie and for the FA, it was time to celebrate 150 years helping govern the world’s most popular sport. But it was also a time for some truly monumental record breakers, with a month that saw achievements set and broken as varied as they were impressive.Nothing owned October quite like Grand Theft Auto. The series’ fifth and latest installment came out, like, well, gangbusters in smashing a half dozen records nearly instantly upon its release.One man who knows a thing or two about coming out of the gate strongly: Edson Arantes do Nascimento, aka Pelé. The one-time 17-year-old prodigy, turned arguably the greatest soccer player of all time, was bestowed with a pair of Guinness World Records titles this month. As if his resume needed more padding!videoA couple of great records were set just in time for Halloween, as the Jersey Shore broke the bank on a makeup budget with a massive zombie walk, while a group of Canadian children helped stretch a line of jack-o’-lanterns nearly 1,000 feet.While we would have to wait a month for the return of Katniss Everden in “Catching Fire,” America’s Ted Batchelor paid a fitting-if-unintentional homage to The Hunger Games sequel with his record for the most people performing full body burns.The big movie highlight of the month in India came courtesy of the Bollywood release, “Boss.” To commemorate the film and its star, iconic actor Akshay Kumar, fan club “TeamAkshay” built the largest poster ever made.And from one larger-than-life man to another, we at GWR were happy to hear of the wedded bliss enjoyed by Sultan Kosen, the tallest man living. In a ceremony in his native Turkey, Kosen married new wife Merve Dibo, uniting the 5-foot-9 bride with her 8-foot-3 groom.videoKosen was named the tallest man living in 2009. < Read 2013 in World Records – September Read 2013 in World Records – November>
