The Planck Particle is so mind-boggingly small, that if the observable universe were the size of a large tree, then the Planck Particle would be the size of an atom.

Biologists have observed that the tree species "Araucaria columnaris" tilts its trunks towards the equator. In the northern hemisphere, the trees bend to the south, in the southern hemisphere to the north. The closer the trees are to the poles, the stronger their inclination. The reason for this is still unknown. The researchers suspect that this is some kind of genetic defect.

In 1978, the US Navy ship USS Stein was apparently attacked by an unknown species of giant squid. Almost all cuts on the SONAR dome contained remains of a sharp, curved claws that are found on the rims of the suction cups of some squid tentacles; these claws were much larger than those of any discovered squid species.

In September 2019, researchers set out on the largest Arctic expedition in world history – the MOSAiC expedition. More than a year later, on October 12, the research vessel POLARSTERN has returned to its home port of Bremerhaven.

On the MOSAiC expedition, experts from 20 nations have studied the Arctic for an entire year. For this purpose, from autumn 2019 to autumn 2020 the German icebreaker Polarstern drifted across the Arctic Ocean, trapped on purpose in the sea ice. MOSAiC has been coordinated by the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI). In order for the unprecedented project to be a success and produce as much valuable data as possible, over 80 scientific institutes have worked together in a research consortium.

The expedition’s total budget was over 140 million euros.

Further information on the expedition

Master Chief is a major character in the Halo multimedia franchise. First appearing in the 2001 video game Halo: Combat Evolved, he is the playable character and protagonist of many of the games in the franchise, and makes additional appearances in spin-offs, novels, and comics. In the story, Master Chief is abducted as a child and raised by the military to fight against human rebels. He and his fellow Spartan supersoldiers instead become humanity's best weapon in the fight against a genocidal collective of alien races known as the Covenant. The character is voiced by Steve Downes. Master Chief was originally designed to be a faceless avatar whom players could inhabit while playing the games, but the relationship between him and his artificial intelligence companion Cortanahas become a central part of the franchise. Master Chief serves as a mascot for the Xbox brand, and is an iconic character in gaming culture.

Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen (1845-1923) was the first scientist in the world to receive the Nobel Prize in Physics. He was awarded in 1901 for the discovery of those rays that revolutionized medicine and were later named after him (German: Röntgenstrahlung, English: X-radiation).

He received the recognition six years after he discovered the X-rays. Despite the Nobel Prize, Röntgen was not able to publish a doctoral thesis, he was never approved for it despite two university diplomas.

The bureaucratic obstacle: Wilhelm Röntgen didn’t have a high school certificate. He was mistakenly thought to be the author of a caricature by his class teacher, so he was expelled without a degree from the Technical School in Utrecht.

All Hallow's Eve
Double Dare was a game show on Nickelodeon where families would answer questions and kids would perform obstacles or challenges. It had one episode that was shot but never aired. The episode in question featured a child contestant who had a condition that made their bones extremely fragile and lied about it on the application to get in the show. During filming, the child broke his arm doing one of the obstacles and Nickeloden had to give him a small prize to settle the case of a potential lawsuit, especially since the child's father was a lawyer. Said episode is still unaired to this day.

8 kilometres of hornbeam hedge, over 30,000 plants – Europe’s largest green façade is complete. The facade is an essential part of the Kö-Bogen II business and office building by ingenhoven architects.

The ensemble completes an extensive urban redevelopment in the centre of Düsseldorf (Capital of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany). At the same time, it represents a paradigm shift: from an urban perspective, the shift away from the automotive age, the shift towards people as a benchmark and with the expansive green façade for a possible response of cities to climate change.

To give back as much greenery as possible to the city is a task that ingenhoven architects have been pursuing for decades with projects across different climates and continents – under the term supergreen®, the company pursues a comprehensive sustainability concept.

With hornbeam, a native plant species was deliberately chosen. Through a comprehensive phytotechnological concept, the hedges become an integral part of the building. They improve the microclimate of the city – the green shields the sun’s rays in summer and reduces the inner-city heat effect, binds carbon dioxide, stores moisture, dampens noise and promotes biodiversity. The ecological benefits of hornbeams correspond to those of about 80 mature deciduous trees.

A possible response of cities to climate change.
