Generally, when we talk about science to school-going kids, these are the most common images that come to their minds. It's not surprising since these are some basic elements of studying science. All of these words reflect some aspect of science, but none can really define it.
What if we tell you - Science is a mystery inviting anyone & everyone interested in becoming Sherlock to join in the endless journey of puzzles, fun & discovery? Well, today you're invited to uncover some unheard, fun, and unbelievable science facts with Practically!
So in the newest series, The World of Amazing Facts, we have Science as our chief guest. Read on to know about the most mind-blowing science facts that will surely leave you amazed.
One of the funniest yet unbelievable science facts is that humans share 50% of their DNA with bananas. This is because all life on our planet has actually evolved from one single cell that emerged around 1.6 billion years ago.
Another science fact that will blow your mind is that the tiny ants can lift objects 50 times their body weight! Their size might be small but they have so much more power than larger animals or even humans due to their ultra-strong muscles.
A rat laughs playfully when tickled. Unbelievable, right? But it's true. According to National Geographic, rats respond actively to tickling and even play with the researchers.
Another unbelievable science fact is that after consuming food on Earth, gravity holds it down due to which the gas comes out from your mouth. And that's what we call a burp. In space, the gas cannot separate from the food, which makes it impossible to burp. Trying the same can lead to vomiting.
Another amazing science fact you never learned about is that Octopuses have nine brains, three hearts, and blue blood!
All this time, you may have thought that oxygen is odourless and colourless. But another mind-blowing science fact reveals that oxygen is pale blue in its liquid and solid forms.
That’s right. The human body consists of more bacteria than cells. We have 39 trillion bacteria and 30 trillion human cells. Researchers believe we are more bacteria and less human.
In grasshoppers, membranes that vibrate in response to the sound are located on their first abdominal segment, which is found under the wings. This eardrum is known as a tympanal organ.
Polar bears are experts at conserving heat so much so that even infrared cameras can't catch them. Due to a heavy covering of blubber under the skin, bears stay warm all the time and can withstand the chilliest Arctic day.
