Scientific Facts That Will Blow Your Mind

  • The blue whale is the largest animal to have ever lived in the planet, and it's still alive today.
  • There's roughly 7 x 1027 atoms in the human body. That's more than a trillion trillions. Or more than a billion billion billions.
  • The passage of time isn't uniform for everything. Time passes at different rates depending upon how fast you are going.
