Unknown Facts about Science and Technology Surely You don't know

We all learn amazing facts about science in school - like Einstein's theory of relativity, the periodic table, DNA replication and Pythagoras Theorem.
The information we obtain there sets the foundations for all the other wonderful things we continue to study. However science undoubtedly does not finish at school, and it's once you take your learning to consecutive level that things get extremely fascinating.
Here are some marvelous facts about science that we did not learn at school, but wish we did because We certainly would have paid a whole lot more attention if my teacher had shared some of these insights in class.

  • Cats always land on their feet, due to physics

As Smarter daily demonstrated with this amazing slow motion footage, cats actually use their 2 halves of their bodies separately to make the fast rotation (don't try this at home).

  • Water can boil and freeze at same time

Seriously, it's known as the 'triple point', and it happens once the temperature and pressure is simply right for the 3 phases (gas, liquid, and solid) of a substance to coexist in thermodynamical equilibrium. This GIF shows cyclohexane in a vacuum.


  • An egg appears like a crazy jellyfish underwater

I am sure that you don't know this fact about science. A cracked egg on land would possibly create a big mess, however eighteen meters (60 feet) below the surface of the ocean, the pressure on the egg is 2.8 times air pressure, and it holds it all together like an invisible egg shell. That's true.


  • Lasers can get trapped in water

This is not only a fantastic example of total internal reflection (TIR), it additionally shows how fibre optic cables work to guide the flow of light.


  • Prove Pythagoras theorem with fluid

Not shopping for what your maths teacher is marketing when they tell you

A2 + B2 = C2?

Now you can prove it to your teacher with liquid.


  • What happens once a black hole swallows a star

As the star gets sucked up into the black hole, a large jet of plasma is burped out, spanning hundreds of light-years. "When the star is ripped apart by the gravitational forces of the black hole, some part of the star's remains falls into the black hole, whereas the rest is ejected at high speeds," explains Johns Hopkins University researcher, Suvi Gezari.


  • You'll see without your glasses

According to Minute Physics, all you need to do is just build a pinhole with your hand, which can help you to focus the light coming back into your retina. Sure, it will not provide you 20/20 vision, however it is a good start if you've left your glasses at home.

  • Face formation within the womb

Embryonic development is an unbelievably complicated method that scientists are still simply starting to understand. However one thing researchers are able to map out is how the embryo folds to form the structures of the face within the womb. We may watch this all day.


  • One solar radiation release the equivalent energy of millions of 100-megaton atomic bombs

And they're happening all the time.

  • You would be comfortable surviving a bomb underwater

What happens to those balloons? That is what would happen to your lungs if an explosion went off close to you underwater.

  • If you spin a ball as you drop it, it flies

Yes, you heard right it can really fly. It's due to the Magnus impact, that happens once the air on the front side of a spinning object goes in the same direction as its spin, which means it gets dragged along with the object and deflected back.
Meanwhile, the air on the opposite side of the ball is moving in the other direction, so the air flow separates. This fact of science also helps a lot in the study of physics.
