  • [Science fact 1] Turbulence in stellar nurseries will cause groups of stars from the same cloud to be scattered relatively quickly. There’s no reason to think that the current nearest stars to the sun are our siblings, though we probably do have sibling stars out there somewhere. Scientists have probably found a star (HD 162826) that formed from the same molecular cloud as our sun about 110 light-years away. This star might have shared the stellar nursery the sun was born in about 4.6 billion years ago. This star is 15 percent more massive than the sun, so it can’t be called a solar twin, just a solar sibling.

  • [Science fact 3] DMSO is an organic solvent which has a really unusual property in that you can "taste" it by just touching it. In reality, it directly triggers the nerves that normally react to taste.


  • [Science fact 4] There is a species of bacteria named Deinococcus radiodurans which is so resistant to radiation that scientists have nicknamed it “Conan the Bacterium.”


  • [Science fact 5] The cheerleader effect, also known as the group attractiveness effect is the cognitive bias which causes people to think individuals are more attractive when they are in a group. The term was coined in 2008 during the How I Met Your Mother episode “Not a Father's Day”, and has been backed up by clinical research by Drew Walker and Edward Vul. The effect occurs because of the brain’s tendency to calculate the average properties of an object when viewing a group.


  • [Science fact 6] The modern air conditioner was invented by Willis Carrier not to cool people, but to reduce damaging humidity in a print shop.


  • [Science fact 7] Nobel Prize winner Dr. James Watson, the co-discoverer of DNA's double helix structure, believed that babies shouldn't be considered alive until 3 days after birth so that if the baby is sick, disabled, deformed, or deemed otherwise unacceptable, the baby can be legally left to die or euthanized.


  • [Science fact 8] Enrico Fermi’s paper discussing neutrinos was rejected by journal Nature because “it contained speculations too remote from reality to be of interest to the reader.”


  • [Science fact 9] The 1975 movie Jaws fueled widespread fear and hatred of sharks, and the shark has been intensely hunted since. It is so endangered that many countries have taken steps to protect it. Ironically, the late Peter Benchley, the author of the book, supported shark conservation.


  • [Science fact 10] In 1950, a 20-year-old amateur herpetologist named Kevin Budden was bitten by the taipan snake he captured for antivenom research and died. News of Budden’s death inspired others to capture additional snake species, resulting in the development of five new antivenoms within 12 years of Budden’s death.
