Huamn’s ability to explore and understand the workings of the world is what separates us from every other species. Through analysis and exploration of science, we have evolved over many millennia. Here is a list of interesting scientific science facts which you didn’t know.

Science Facts List:

  1. Carbon has the highest melting point among all the elements.
  2. Light Travels 18 million times faster than rain.
  3. The exact speed of light is 299,792,458 m/s.
  4. Rubber bands last longer when refrigerated.
  5. Around a million, billion neutrinos from the Sun will pass through your body while you read this sentence.
  6. To escape the Earth’s gravity a rocket need to travel at 7 miles a second.
  7. Light would take 0.13 seconds to travel around the Earth.
  8. Marie Curie’s notebooks are still radioactive.
  9. Until a study published in 1905 by Carnegie scientist Nettie Stevens that identified the Y chromosome, gender was thought to be caused by environmental factors, such as a passion for sex, nutrition, and temperature. These theories had their roots in Aristotle’s theories constructed over 2000 years ago.
  10. Trees do not grow higher than 130m as it is physically impossible for the water to rise higher.
  11. Albert Einstein never received a Nobel Prize for his theory of relativity.
  12. We can produce laser light a million times brighter than sunshine.
  13. Recycling old aluminium uses only 5% of the energy used to make new aluminium.
