did you know the largest salamander is the chinese giant salamander, and it can reach over 6 feet in length?

the largest in the USA is the hellbender, which can reach 2 and a half feet.

If and only if the metals touch at flat surfaces and have no oxidation whatsoever.

Cold welding.

Interesting, because I have no idea what this means. I've never heard of "pinhead" as a unit of energy. Heck, it's not really a unit of anything. But in use, I'd imagine it refers to size, not energy.

Well, yes, I believe it's the equivalent in size. Maybe I should have said it differently :?

Anyway, this is the site where I got these facts: http://listverse.com/2007/11/13/top-10-cool-facts-about-space/

...I love listverse

Few other things that I don't like in there. ;)

Quote:
Fact: We are moving through space at the rate of 530km a second

Our Galaxy – the Milky Way is spinning at a rate of 225 kilometers per second. In addition, the galaxy is travelling through space at the rate of 305 kilometers per second. This means that we are traveling at a total speed of 530 kilometers (330 miles) per second. That means that in one minute you are about 19 thousand kilometers away from where you were. Scientists do not all agree on the speed with which the Milky Way is travelling – estimates range from 130 – 1,000 km/s. It should be said that Einstein’s theory of relativity, the velocity of any object through space is not meaningful.


They finally get it right in the last sentence - which itself shows their entire passage means nothing. They are giving you speeds without any reference point - all of those bodies are traveling at that speed relative to what?

Quote:
Fact: Earth has at least 4 moons

Okay – that is not actually true – but it is very close.


No, it's nowhere close to true. Their following passage is completely valid, but nobody in their right minds would even relate these to moons. They don't orbit the earth.

Isn't the theory of relativity just an educated guess? Just because we can't figure out how to do something doesn't mean it's not possible.
Would a caveman just up and think one day "hey, i should make a gas powered vehicle so I can travel around?" I'm not saying we are cavemen, but in the grand scope of the universe, we can't be too terribly advanced.

Then again I could be totally wrong on this, seeing how I know less then most people on Einsteins theory.
