There is just an empty space

Hi,
here is the second season of facts I created, enjoy:

1) The highest ionization energy for copper is over 1,000,000 kJ/mole, one mole of copper is approximately 63.5 grams and the energy taken by this process is equivalent to the chemical energy of 160 L barrel of oil. This equals also to 250 kg of TNT.
2) The longest protein known is Titin: C169 723H270 464N45 688O52 243S912
3) The thickness of soap bubble ranges from 10-1000 nanometers.
4) One Japanese engineer memorized 100,000 digits of pi.
5) Marie Curie was the first woman to get Nobel prize in 1903. She is also the only woman that got 2 Nobel prizes and this happened to only three other people and two organisations. Also her daughter Irène got Nobel prize with her husband.
6) Einstein was asked to be the first president of Israel, he refused.
7) Four new elements have their names, the most massive (proton num. 118) is called Oganesson.
8) Carbon has the highest melting point and that is 3823 K. The highest boiling point is for Rhenium and it is stunning 5869 K!
9) Yes I am serious, if you fold regular piece of paper 42 times you will get it on a Moon. (42? This is no coincidence!)
10) Everything is just a space.

Chelyabinsk meteor is whole new level of destruction

Hi,
I decided to make a short post of ten facts which I found over time, this is the first in series, enjoy:


1) Even that the surface of Mercury has 400 degrees Celsius, there is water ice at the poles inside craters where temperature may be low as -170°C.

2) Jupiter is the oldest of planets in our Solar System.

3) Most distant cluster of galaxies was found to be 3.8 billions of years old and at the distance of about 16 billion lightyears. It is 1000 times as massive as Milkyway.

4) Satellite SOHO found more than 3000 comets.

5) The longest time spent in space is 437 days by Valeri Polyakov.

6) Tardigrades are organisms that are able to withstand even vacuum of space and reproduce after high doses of radiation.

7) As of March 24, 2015 the longest distance traveled on other world was by Opportunity on Mars, 42.2 kilometers.

8) Today Scott Kelly and Mikhail Kornienko return to Earth after one year in space.

9) Person passes out when unprotected in vacuum after about 15 seconds.

10) Chelyabinsk meteor damaged more than 7,200 building and hurt 1,491, mainly because of shattered glass.
