2. Flea’s can jump 130 times higher than their own height. In human terms this is equal to a 6ft. person jumping 780 ft. into the air.

3. The most dangerous animal in the housefly-1world is the common housefly. Because of their habits of visiting animal waste, they transmit more diseases than any other animal.cc_iStock_18996432_LARGE_16x9

4.Snakes are true carnivorous because they eat nothing but other animals. They do not eat any type of plant material.

What Is The Large Hadron Collider?

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and most powerful particle collider, most complex experimental facility ever built, and the largest single machine in the world. It was built by the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) between 1998 and 2008 Large_Hadron_Collider_dipole_magnets_IMG_0955in collaboration with over 10,000 scientists and engineers from over 100 countries, as well as hundreds of universities and laboratories.It lies in a tunnel 27 kilometres (17 mi) in circumference, as deep as 175 metres (574 ft) beneath the France–Switzerland border near Geneva, Switzerland. The aim of the LHC is to allow physicists to test the predictions The collider has four crossing points, around which are positioned seven detectors, each designed for certain kinds of research.The LHC's computing grid is a world record holder. Data from collisions was produced at an unprecedented rate for the time of first collisions, tens of petabytes per year.The LHC is the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator. The collider is contained in a circular tunnel, with a circumference of 27 kilometres (17 mi), at a depth ranging from 50 to 175 metres (164 to 574 ft) underground.
